Question about 1989 Pontiac Grand Am
89 Pontiac Grand Am will as I approach a stop sign die as I come to a stop. I feel it getting ready to quit as I approach the stop sign. It dies and will start back up but when I put my foot on the acceleltor it dies again. After it rests awhile its ok then it just does it again no reason or warning it just starts doing it again. Sometime can go for days before it does it again. Never know. Any suggestions?. It passed smog and has a new cat on it. And of course did not do it when they test drove it! ?????? Has been doing this for about a year. I dont drive it much just around town now as I am afraid to take it far. It runs ok other than that problem. When it stops the tach does not go crazy it just sputters and dies ????????????
I had the same problem!! Many machanics will say it's the fule filter or battery or you need a tuneup! A:Transmission Solnoid

Well if its an automatic it sounds like you have a bad lock-up switch in the transmission, you can either have it replaced or you can simply un plug it from the harness and the only thing it will effect is your fuel economy.

Spray the throttle body out with carb spray right before the butterfly plate or the throttle plate the thing that opens and closes with the gas pedal.
clean all the black carbon out right there at that plate and wipe it with a clean cloth.
