I have a 1994 oldsmobile 88 that runs good but shuts off at stops

My car runs good has no problem accelerating and everything works good. But it seems as though everytime i come to a stop the car turns off and the engine light oil lights etc. come on at the same time. the car starts back up with no problem though. I need to know what to do to fix this problem.

When was the last time the fuel filter was changed, if you can't remember its time to change it, sounds like it plugging up. if that does not fix it do fuel pressure test, pump could be getting weak. but chg. fuel filter.

1994 Oldsmobile 88 Olds stalls around turns


You either have a broken gas tank fuel pump well baffle or the fuel gauge is incorrect and you really are about to run out of gas. Both requires the fuel tank assembly be pulled out of the car and the baffle checked around the fuel pump or the fuel pump replaced if the baffle is ok.

Car key reprogramming for 1994 oldsmobile royale 88. My car will start than it will shut right back off or it will not start all.


Your 1994 used the VATS antitheft system. This key is NOT reprogrammable. You can try to reset the TDM using the ten minute trick, this may work for you. As far as the key goes, you need a new key with a new chip. Remember too that it can also be a part in the ignition that may be failing.

Here is a good link on the security antitheft system.

1994 Olds 88 - Car shakes badly when accelerating, usually in the 45-50 mile per hour range. Also now idling rough. Came on all of a sudden. Any ideas before I take it to a shop. Seems to stop shaking...


There is a big possibility that you have wheels that are not balanced. You should have the wheels check wear, missing wheal weights ect. I think if you get this done it will take care of the problem. Good luck.....

Why does my 1994 Olds Delta 88 loose power and surge at higher rpm? I checked electrical system, cooling system, and everything is working ok.


Does it especially lose power going up hill??? Check your exhaust system...you might have a collapsed catalytic converter.

We had this same problem. It turned out to be the computer. We had the computer replaced and it worked great for awhile but now there's something else wrong with it. Hope this helps and good luck.

Ac quit running,compressor doesnt run,fan doesnt run,no bad fuses or relays that i can find,replaced controls


It may be your ignition switch. Bang on the bottom of your steering column with the key in the "on" position and see if the fan will fire up. My car is doing the exact same thing right now, but I can basically rub the bottom of the trim under the steering column and it comes on. It will also start when I hit a good bump on the road.

Good luck!

CAR CUTS OFF WHEN IT GETS HOT MAYBE ENGINE MODULE Car shuts off when I am driving and when it gets hot.


if your car has a coil pack it could have a hair line crack and would need to be replaced this would cause the car to stop running once it get hot because when it overheats the coil pace quites allowing your spark pluges to fire which causes the car to stop running

Sounds like the baffle in the fuel tank could be loose. I remember that problem on those when they were new. the only repair for that was/is to replace the tank. before you do that you should install a fuel pressure guage to it and test drive and watch the fuel press. it should stay above 35 psi. and even rise when accelerating if the fuel pressure regulator is ok. good luck.
