Question about 1995 Oldsmobile 88
Car runs great, when it runs. While driving especially over 40-45 mph, the engine will cut out. I can sometimes get it started again by putting it in neutral, and turning it over while still rolling. When the engine is cold it cuts out and I need to restart it a few times until it warms up, and then it will stay running. When the engine cuts out while driving only the battery light and the coolant light come on, not all of the lights that will come on when you first turn the ignition into the on position. My mechanic friend says it sounds like a fuel pump or a fuel pressure issue. But, he also said that when the fuel pump goes its done for good and that its not likely that it will work then die then work again. Is there anything "cheap and easy" that I could try before I have to drop the tank and change the fuel pump? I have already changed then fuel filter, and had new plugs and wires put in a few months ago.

Check the Fuel Filter and Fuel Pump. Also Check under the Hood and Look for a Fuse Relay Box. Inside this Box there should be a Relay for the Starter and Fuel Pump and Crank, Also after Replacing these Take a Flashlight and Check ALL the Fuses Really good in the Box under the Hood and the one Under the Dash on the Inside.. Replace these and let me Know how it goes.

Try disconnecting the electrical connector at the transmission and see if it stall when you put it in gear. You will get a service engine light, but not to worry, it will go back out once you reconnect.
By disconnecting the wire connector we can tell if it is transmission related.
Good luck, let me know.

could it be the A/C pump kicking in. might be boging down the motor or electrical circuit, not letting the injectors get enough power. This could happen if the bearings are going bad in th A/C pump or there is a short in it. Just an idea. sounds like you have done the main components.
