Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1 Answer

Car starts fine, but stalls at stops and takeoffs occasionlly

I have a 92 cutlass supreme convertible with a 3.1L engine. my car starts fine everyday, but after driving with no specific time period in between the car stalls when i come to a stop or when im taking off from a stop. after this the car will not start unless i hold the gas pedal to the floor. I have to do this three times before the car actually stays running, because when i first try to resatrt it holding the pedal down the car starts but the rpms are reving at about 2.5 and if u touch the gas pedal after that the car dies out, meaning the car starts but the engine is reving high like im still pressing the gas pedal but im not, anf if i do touch the gas pedal the car will stall, after doing this thre time the car usually starts and i can drive, after this happens the car will usually drive for about an hour before doing it again, that;s if it does it again because sometime it do cut off again amd sometimes i dosen't. please help me

What makes the fuel pump not kick on on a 92 Oldsmobile Cutlass


There is a red wire close to the battery in the front. It's not connected to anything. Apply positive voltage and that will run your pump for testing purposes.

My 1993 Olds Cutlass Supreme drives great most of the time. But after putting gas in it, as I am tooling along within the next 1/2 hour, if I slow down to turn or stop, the car begins to shudder and...


The problem is " The Torque Converter Clutch, (TCC) solenoid" is what actually causes the TCC to engage and disengage. When the TCC solenoid receives a signal from the ECM, it opens a passage in the valve body and hydraulic fluid applies the TCC. When the ECM signal stops, the solenoid closes the valve and pressure is vented causing the TCC to disengage. If the TCC fails to disengage when the vehicle comes to a stop, the engine will stall. This is a common problem with older GM vehicles.

Start by checking the fuses that's simple

last you may have to remove the steering wheel and than replace the entire signal assembly those are pretty much all your options so start with 1 and work your way down the list
