Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
On Sun. my Olds cutlass cierra's stalled as I took a sharp turn into a parking lot. After about 5 mins of trying to start the car I was able to get it restarted (engine would turn over but not start at first). I drove the car home (20mins) and went to drive the car 2 hours later. It had trouble starting again, but finally did. About 2 mins down the road the car stalled again.
On mon. I brought the car to a mechanic. (midas) They replaced the spark plugs, spark plug wires, air oil and fuel filters. They also conducted their midas touch maintenance inspection with no other relanvent maintenance. They could not get the car to stall or fail after driving around the parking lot several times that day. I went to get the car at 5pm and the car started but stalled after driving 10 ft. (noticed that the engine was idling very high compared to what I was used to)
They brought out a dianostics tool right then and hooked it up and ran the car to test sensors etc. the diagnostic device told them it was the "throttle position sensor" which was replaced on ...
I went to pick up the car in the afternoon and drove it home without any issue.
I went to drive to work and the car would turn over but did not start right away. I was able to get the car started and drive to work. When I went to start the car after work it did not even turn over. The car had power and plenty of it, but absolutely nothing from the engine.
I had the car towed back to midas. The replaced the starter, and I drove the car home later that day.
I went out early in the morning to start the car to warm it up. Went inside for 10-15 mins while the car warmed up, and came outside to a stalled car. Now the power is weak (probably because the car sat out there stalled with the power on for 10-15 mins or so). The car does not start, or turn over. So I now have a beautiful baby blue lawn ornament.
any and all help is appreciated
I would look to see if you got a broken ground wire!!! witch are a big thing on todays computered cars. I know you have dumped a lot of money in your lawn ornament but one unhooked or dirty ground wire not making a connection can reak havick with everything, I would chk.for ground issues like around the fuel tank and where they hook to engine to body to frame or k-member.
