There are cracks on the soldering inside the Main Relay. Either resolder the cracks or replace the Main Relay.

Low Idle (750RPM) and shuts off when coming to a complete stop


Start with the basics, are there any DTC's ? How old are the spark plugs, air and fuel filters, are there any vacuum leaks?

1994 Oldsmobile Bravada dies at stoplights, just changed fuel pump/filter and egr valve.Appriciate any help. thanks


check for vacuum leaks. You can do this with a can of carb spray but please be careful as it is flammable! if the ignition wires are leaking and you hit them with carb spray you will start the engine on fire!

The safer alternative is to have the engine "smoked" for vacuum leaks. This is done with a smoker. Any place that is leaking you will see smoke.

A trained ear will also be able to hear a leak.

If no leaks are found try unplugging the MAF sensor. Is is in the air tube next to the air filter box. If performance improves try cleaning it with some MAF sensor cleaner. If that doesn't work than you may need to replace it.

Upon startup engine idles rough then speeds up and returns to normal idle .After a couple of minutes the volt light comes on then no power then a complete shut down.Starts back up for a while then shuts...


OK, the volt light means that the alternator is not charging the battery. It could mean the battery is shorted out, or the battery is bad or low on charge due to an alternator not charging.

Replace the Alternator and battery as indicated by standard voltage output tests under load.

The computer in the car will not operate the engine properly on low voltage.

Fixing the charging system, may resolve the rough idle (meaning that it may be trying to relearn after data was erased by low voltage of the battery), and the speed up.


Try the charging system first, and once that is repaired, reevaluate the engine driveability and speed and idle smoothness, after it relearns.

Good luck on this repair.

Has trouble taking off.low exhaust pressure, low fuel mileage


Suspects will include air supply, compression, and exhaust.

After ruling out the obvious basics (fresh air filter, unobstructed air intake) pull the wire clip to the auto-choke and idle for a few seconds before dropping it in gear to check for a change in power.

*Have you pulled the rear wheels to check for a binding E-brake or broken springs in the drums?
What feels like a left-front drag could also be a rear dragging...

*Has it been smoking lately?

Car will start but will not idle. If RPM's not


Possible low fuel presure at idle. If new fuel filter does nt fix , then it will
require a new "fuel pump". Have you driven this car on low fuel level often?

While at idle, SOMETIMES my car jerks and feels like it will shut off.


I had that problem with another one of my vehicles. It ended up being the fuel pump. The problem was that I let the fuel level in my vehicle get to low, and that the fuel filter inside the pump had gotten debri from the bottom of the tank stuck in it and it was starving the vehicle for fuel. Eventually my vehicle wouldn't start. I had a tow truck driver tell me what the problem was. He banged the side of the fuel pump real hard and the vehicle started right up. I eventually had to replace the fuel pump.
Hope this helps.
