Check to see if it has spark, fuel. Your car is notorius for shorting out in the starting selenoid, get a new starter if you have fuel and spark and this will fix the problem.

    starter selenoid is on the starter, they are one assembly

  • Allen Holston Jun 23, 2009

    the starter is located on the bottom of the car, follow the positive battery cable and it will take you straight to the selenoid.

Sounds like your engine timing needs to be advanced and yes I know your car is fuel injected and has coils but there is a small nut on back of jets that when loosed it can advance engine timing and the speed idle speed (driving with foot off the gas normally at coasting speed of 5mph.) My car did the same as yours but tune up and idle adjustment has my idle speed at 6 mph an no problems.

Jerks and looses power on hills and flat land no engine light comes on what can be wrong?


When you said it feels like its not getting enough gas, you may be right.
Since you have replaced the fuel filter, and you are not getting a check engine light, my suggestion would be to check fuel pressure with a gauge. The fuel pump may be weak.

Could be a failing fuel pump. GM vehicles are notorious for failing fuel pumps, starters, and alternators. Was the car running hot when it stalled? I would bet on the fuel pump on its last leg, and the extra heat may have made it stop.

Driving down hill check engine light came on. At


Defiantly check your timing belt first, there is a little hole on the side of the timing belt cover pop off the plug of the hole and have someone crank it for a second if the camshaft pulley does NOT move then it is definite. but if it does check to see if your getting gas, the gas pumps have known to go out quite often in this vehicle

Engine suddenly revs when stopped & @ idling


sounds like one of the metal arms connected to the engine may be getting stuck some how. have someone get in car and press on gas when car is off while you watch engine to see what is moving, then check those arms to see if there is any possible obstructions or knicks or something on them
