95 Metro Stalled out at light

Like to thank you all on here for your help over the years.

my 95 metro with 215,000 miles stalled out at a light today while i was slowing for a stop.

the oil light and check engine lights came on. I turned the key to start, and it took a while to start it again, it turned over after 5 seconds, and the engine kinda revved up slowly and the warning lights went off.

what could this be?

appreciate your help

Your car has 215k miles on it. This is probably not what you're wanting to hear but, I think your engine may be running on low compression and needs to be rebuilt. A compression test will need to be done to know. Factory spec is 199 lb/sq. in. new, and 154 lb/sq in. low compression limit. Post back what you find.
