I have a 91 cutlass ciera that stalled yesterday. It now starts but wont stay running unless im gasing. If I let off the gas it cuts off. i can hear the exaughts sputtering a bit now wen im gasing also....

The only real way to solve any issues ,with any
product,is have it & perform some type of testing

When you ask a question you need to state if
you have automobile knowledge

I won't spend an hour typing all the possibilities of
what may be your cars issues

You will need a repair shop,as I assume you know,
even if someone lists a few probable causes.

Electrical problems

It sounds like a short in the wiring harness somewhere, if I were you I would take it to a shop that specializes in auto electrical diagnosis look in the yellow pages to find, from here I can't really direct you on what to do besides tearing the interior apart and replacing the section of the harness that is acting up.

Car shakes

You need to bring the car to a repair shop and have them drain the tank if a sizeable amount of diesel was pumped into the tank.

94 Ciera stalls when first started unless I keep my foot on the gas.

Well, First, Check for any vacuum leaks, these will cause a low Idle due to a "lean" fuel/air mixture condition.

What is the engine size? If you have the V-6 take off the big air intake hose from the engine side, turn off the engine and block the throttle wide open with a tick or a brick. The plate inside the throttle body will be wide open , Use a good carberator cleaner and a stiff tooth brush to clean every partical of built up carbon from BOTH sides of the plate and also spray all around the throttle body inside where the plate is try to reach inside with the tooth brush as far as you can and scrub all carbon build up Spray down good with the carb cleaner. Take the block from the Throttle and replace the hose make sure there are no holes and the hose is properly installed and tight car will start hard be hard to start but it will start go easy on the gas after it starts and let it run a bit at idle
Let me know how it goes and if this information is helpful please give me a fixya! Rating
