Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

Car stalls at time when coming to a stop

I have a 94 Cavalier and at times when I stop it wants to die. Engine spits and sputters. Most times if I put in L2 and keep foot lightly on the gas it will keep running, but if I let off it will die or run rough. Seems when I stop if I put in L2 the idle is better than in D. I am not sure what the issue is. Doesn't do this every time I drive and it hits me by surprise. But I can usually keep the engine running by doing above. Any ideas?

I have an 88 Cadillac Deville. 2 months ago I had a new fuel pump put in. It's making a whining noise and the car keeps dying and sputtering. What else could be the problem to make the pump go out?

Sputtering


if it is a 2.2 L engine check the fuel injecters see if they are leaking or if you smell gas behind the valve cover,,,if not your next bet would be the coil pack coil; packs act up more when they are warm

98 cavalier sputters and backfires at 2000-4000rpms


if your car is spitting and sputtering than you have a timing problem, you either need a new timing belt or if you have a new belt it is installed improperly. probably off by one or two teeth.

Vibration when in gear, and stalling.


The problem is the torque converter solenoid. I had it happen on my 94 Cavalier a few years back and was a cheap fix at the local car mechanic. What happens is the transmission warms up and hits a certain speed where the solenoid engages, but then it sticks and won't disengage until it cools down sufficiently. When it sticks, it causes the car to shake when slowing down and will snub out the engine if you come to a stop.

95 dakota dies when warmed up


yes it can but you may have a coolant temp sensor acting up which causes the computer to open the injectors to much which can also cause this 02 sensor code. when it stalls do u have spark and fuel pressure.

Major vacuum leak? Do vacuum test. Clean
injectors and check fuel filter. Check timing
too.
