Question about Pontiac Sunfire

Stalls accelerating on turns

When accelerating around left hand turns, car stalls and oil light comes on. The car stops accelerating and rolls to a stop. I turned the car off and checked the oil level, which is fine. After restarting the car, it runs fine. This has happened on 3 random and isolated incidents.

Disengage the traction control if possible see if that helps. the oil light will come on after stalling, because the key is on.. just like when you start the car. it may be dirty fuel system... filter and or injectors...

SOURCE: 98 altima oil light on and off oil level fine car restarted and

If oil pressure is LOW this vehicle has a safety feature that will prevent vehicle from starting.(check oil level before you start) Now what I wan't you to do is to have the oil pressure switch checked or changed. This may be the reason why this vehicle is not starting or it can also be that the actual oil pressure is low. To check the oil pressure of the vehicle you will need an oil pressure guage. Remove the oil pressure switch and connect guage to oil pressure hole and check oil pressure while cranking vehicle.Some pressure testers can be connected to oil filter housing either is fine. If this vehicle has low oil pressure the reasons for that are bad oil pump, clogged oil pump pick up(from lack of oil change/poor mantainence) or bad connecting rod and main bearings but this usually have a warning from before (the engine will sound loud by knocking /clicking-tapping noise) It this was happening you may need to rebuild this engine or replace it. Good luck and Thanks for using FIX YA

SOURCE: 2004 DeVille Low Oil Pressure Light comes on and Stop Engine. Stop car and restart after checking oil and light is off. Comes on intermittently.

Probably the sensor/sending unit on the engine that sends signal to the light.

97 Tahoe hesitates and sometimes acts like it will stall when accelerating. Stalls when coming to a stop.


even if you hear pump run, dosent mean it has enough pressure. it is very possible this is the problem. could be engine miss as well. does it jerk when accellerating (light load, like in overdrive up a hill?) let me know.

Idle speed too low


Sounds like you may have an issue with your idle air control or your mass air flow sensor. The IAC can cause a vehicle to stall when up to temperature, especially when warmer outside.I would clean or replace that for starters.
