    ok, on the 94 Q45 you may need too check the connections to your MAF sensor as that seems to be a big problem with that car, have you had a diagnostic hooked up yet?

Have the fuel pressure checked- this would determine if your fuel pump is working properly. Its really easy if you have a gauge. you might be able to rent one at a part store. or it could need a new fuel filter

SOURCE: I have a 1999 cadi deville, the abs and traction

A few things could be wrong....it could be your brake control module, anti-lock brake system or a wheel speed sensor. The best thing to do is to get it into a garage and have them take a look at it and give you an idea of what is wrong. Either way, if you do not have the proper tools, you are better off taking it to the shop.

I hope this helps.

After driving at 35 to 45 per mile for 15 to 20 miles the car hesitating, jerking and stop it will start again by permiting it to sit a few minutes


Sounds like a gas tank full of crud. Check gas filter to see if it is dirty. Also water in gas will clog gas tank filter then when car stops water will disburse and collect when engine starts again.

Car is stalling and jerking then runs fine


There should be a trouble code or codes stored in the engine computer. A hand held scanner could retrieve them-go to Autozone for a free scan service. The codes indicate to a mechanic where to start looking-whether it is a fuel, or air, or ignition spark delivery problem.
Things that should be checked are the air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, check fuel pressure, check for air obstructions into the engine (like a dirty throttle body inside-sometimes a cause of stalling), check for vacuum or air leaks that let unmetered air into the engine. There is an ideal ratio of gas to air mixture that the computer is always trying to achieve. When it does, the engine runs fine and gas mileage is optimum. This is why it is important to keep up with regular maintenance and service. Get the codes to see if the computer is doing what it does best, better even than an old mechanic with a good ear.

I would replace the fuel filter, double check your work and make sure that all plug wires are securely connected and going to the right place (we all make mistakes sometimes) and check or replace the coil.

these cars are carburated motors and need around 10 minutes to warm up because they operate at higher temperatures.

4 cyl Engine starts and idles ok...give it throttle and it dies


I need to get a clear mental picture of what exactly is happening.

With this said, you stated that the car "runs fine" until warmed up.

Q: When you start the car when cold it idles fine?
Q: If you allow the car to idle until "fully" warmed does the car stall?
Q: As the car begins to warm up, Does the RPM fluctuate abnormally?
Q: Does the car Only stall when you press on the gas pedal or does it stall just sitting and idling in addition to pressing the gas pedal?
Q: If you can drive it while cold does the car stall during acceleration when warm or only at Stop Signs / Lights?
Q: If you wait 20min or so, can you start the car again?
Q: How many miles are on the car?

Possible dirty fuel filter. I'd start there first, as it's the cheapest route, and quite possibly replacing the filter will solve your problem.
