Question about 1996 Saturn SL

92 SL1 Intermitant stalling problem

My 92 SL1 will occasionally stall while acceleratiing at cruzing speed.
The RPM's jump around and then flat line to a complete stall forcing me to pull to the side of the road. The car won't restart until I wait a few minutes.
Once the car restarts it will run fine for a few days before it happens again.
I've had the fuel injector cleaned and plug wires replaced and the water sensor replace. I have a 1996 saturn coupe and it shakes so much while is on idle and sometime the engine seems like going to go out while i'm driving.The car did over heat and I have to stop on the side of the road to cool it down and I did put water after that it was ok.Did I damage the engine?

Fuel pump,Fuel pump, Fuel pump,,, high mile cars will always out live their fuel pump. The stalls will become more frequent. But first change fuel filter if it has one outside the fuel tank, if it has it in the tank just replace the pump at the same time. Also next time when it stalls bang the bottom of the tank with your hand and try starting.

When the gas is applied the car will stall and the rpm gauge will go up and down


Check the air inlet tube for cracks. Duct tape will work in a pinch.

Whats the stall rate for a torque convertor for a 1990 chevy k2500


Hi.
Good question as many stall are about 3000+ RPM. GM used many different speeds and the one associated with your particular truck is associated with your VIN NUMBER. SO -
Take down the VIN # - go to the DEALER = [ much friendlier in person] - ask them which transmission you have AND - what is the STALL SPEED.

Good Luck

Vortec 4wd 2dr auto trans stalls while drive


you might want to look at your O2 sensors, they can cause the motor to run lean or rich. also you might have an electrical issue that is tripping your ECM. your electronic control module might be faulty. best solution is to get a trouble code reader and find out what your on board computer has stored. from there you can repair and clear the codes.

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee that has intermitant transmission problems 1)shifting up it wind out to 2k-3k before shifting 2) at higher speed it feels as if it slips out of overdrive rpm increase but speed...


It will shift out of overdrive upon increasing throttle , pulling hills and so on. Your overdrive probably kicks in around 35 to 45mph and kicks back out as you increase throttle. Electrically controled speed sensor to control the response. Overwise the engine would bog down to a stall. Over drive is just that. It changes the gearing ratio to over drive meaning less then final gear 4 to 1 down to 4 to 3 etc more direct drive ratio to lessen consumtion of fuel with less stress on engine. Have shift speed sensor adjusted. Don't drive in overdrive in city if most driving is under 45mph

My 97 LeSABRE stalls. AT LOW SPEED AND WHEN I PUT IT INTO PARK. RPM GAUGE JUMPS UP AND DOWN VOLT LIGHT COMES ON.


The only reason the voltage light comes on is because it is stalling and the reason the rpm gauge goes up is that is races up and then dies down..Sounds either you have a vacuum leak or a fuel issue..

When i start my 92 geo tracker, it starts fine but about 5 seconds later, the idle drops significantly. enough so, that the car sometimes (usually) stalls and i have to restart it. it also stalls...


this is cause because the ISC is busted or can not open enough to keep idle at 800 rpm.

ISC , idle speed controller

but....
the car has a TPS switch on the throttle body.
if it fails to close at idle the ecu will never attempt to set idle.

or
car could be flooding. (too much gas)

you did not say if motor is 8valve or 16v and they are quite different EFI systems.

Low speed stalling while engine is warm


It just might be that the choke is stuck open.
