So my 1999 car sputters while driving and at lights and when I pull off I have to floor it but not only that’s the oil light flashes while I do that. It has 210,000 miles, what’s wrong?

Maybe you just need a tune-up? Seriously, the skimpy info your giving us can be caused by any number of a hundred problems, including age and wear. What have you done so far, and have you had anyone look at it yet?

Yes they said its the spark plugs, I haven’t put the spark plugs in yet because I wanted another opinion.

Yes, bad spark plugs are a a possible cause for sputtering.
