Question about 1991 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight Regency

1 Answer

1991 oldsmobile runs rough after awhile

When the car first starts it runs fine, then after coming to a stop after a few miles it will randomly begin to idle rough and make a rumbling noise when I accelrate. If I stop turn off the car and start it after a few minutes it won't do it, but will after driving a few miles. I checked the codes and came up with 22,41, and 42. Checked the cam circuit and tps circuit and came back normal. I heard it might be an ECM issue but am not sure if it is. How do I check it and replace it? I have never had to deal with an ECM.

    Any easy methods to getting to the ECM? I will probably look at the junk yard as this car has a few miles on it, how do I make sure what ECM can I use? Any help would be great

Code 22 refers to retarded advance camshaft Position Bank 2. the eaasiest way is to get a known good ECM and replace in place of the old one. if it runs good. replace it.

    try google. you may come up with used parts. like "u pull it' near your location. Make sure it is the same year and looks like the one you have in your car. the same number of pins at the plug , etc.

Car running rough at random when accelerating and also idle drops suddenly when slowing down and often completely stalls out when I stop. Smells strongly of gasoline when it stalls/almost stalls but I


This could be a lot of things. one of the tests that you need to run is shift it into nuetral when you are stopping and see if it still drops RPM and wants to stall. This will eliminate or conclude that it is a transmission issue. If it is still doing this then it could be a vacuum leak or fuel delivery issue.

I am getting a PO430 code on a 2005 Chevy Express. It starts and runs fine until I stop the engine for a few minutes then when I restart it begins to sputter, idle rough and no power. If I let it idle for...


p0430 is the code for below normal catalytic converter efficiency. This may mean that the sensors are faulty in your exhaust stream or that the catalytic converter is clogged or otherwise damaged. That would may also be the reason for the rough idle. Clearing the code does not repair the problem. When codes are "cleared" it simply wipes your code memory clean until the onboard computer has a chance to re-establish the condition of your overall system. This cycle may take several days to weeks depending on how far and how often you drive. Usually there is a sequence of events that have to occur such as acceleration above a certain speed than a stop then a steady speed trip of several miles then another stop. Your engine has to reach normal operating temperatures as well. In short the code will continue to return until you track down the problem.
