Question about 1988 Pontiac 6000 Wagon

1 Answer

Car stalls while slowing or stopping

Bought a 1988 Pontiac 6000 LE for $1. Was told it stalls when slowing down or stopping. Starts right back up and runs. Only when it slows down, the problem rears its ugly head. Anyone had this happen? I haven't taken it to get the codes read yet.

    Is it the IAC? or the EGR? or dirty injectors? I don't want to manipulate the idle cause that was set in the factory. Someone's got to have had the same problem. C'mon!

I've had vehicles that have done this in the past. In the meantime, try to get used to using two feet at the same time (one on the gas and one on the break) to keep the RPMs up while slowing down. It's just a temporary fix, and not recommended that you continue to drive like that.

When you have a chance, get a mechanic to adjust the timing 'UP' a tad so it won't stall out.

If the vehicle is at a timing where it SHOULD be, then raising it to fix this problem will also be temporary until the problem can be diagnosed fully.

After all, however, it is an old cheapy right? These are just quick fixes.

You have a bad idle air / idle sensor. Your car believes that you are in idle at all times so when you come to a stop the engine floods. When the fuel evaporates you can drive again. Drove me crazy when it happened to me.

Should be between the engine and radiator underneath the car. You may be able to see it if you look down towards the oil pan, on the radiator side of the motor.

You need to replace the TCC solenoid under the side cover pan of the transmission. You can also unplug the wires that go to the transmission in the front. After that it will not go into overdrive but it will stay running at stop lights untill you have it repaired.

Sounds like you are loosing fuel pressure intermittently. Is there any damage to the fuel lines? Maybe the fuel pump is on its way out (loosing prime.) If you find this helpful, please rate, thank you.
