Vaporlock Problem 93 Olds Ciera

Hello,

I have a 93 Olds Cirea 3.3L with 110,000 miles. The problem I am having is the car will die suddenly, when this happens it is very hard to restart. I have tried to bleed off the fuel rail, when I do there is a lot of vapor and air trapped in the rail. I had a fuel leak at the tank and replaced the sending unit and the tank but the problem is still there. The engine temp seems to run in range, the fan has been replaced so it is in working order. I have looked for other leaks, but have not found any. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tested the fuel pressure with a guage? modern cars do not vapor lock, if the fuel pump is working correctly the fuel is constantly be cycled to the fuel rail and back to the tank, a closed loop, if you just get a spurt then the fuel pump is most likely failing, is it noisy, a loud humming when listening at the filler neck with the gas cap off?

Dies after warms up can't idle


I would check the idle air control valve, this is what controls the idle, when your foot is not on the throttle.

93 olds cutlass ciera-it bucks and jumps and will die especially on turns. Sometimes hard to restart. May drive several days with no problem and then it will start up again. Any ideas? Has had a new MAP...


When was the last time the fuel filter was chg.? If you can't remember or thats not an issue, than its time to do a fuel pressure test to determine if pump is weak, or on its way out.
