Question about 1990 Buick Reatta

1 Answer

I have a 1992 Chevry full size van with 78,000 miles on it. Last week I was driving and it suddendly died. I stopped the car and restarted it with no problem. I drove for about 3 miles and it died again. I stopped, restarted and have been driving it with no problem. I had this same problem occured about 3 years ago. Does anyone have any idea about this problem?

The first thing I would do is replace the fuel filter. This is fairly easy and inexpensive and will eliminate that as your problem. It also is most likely over due to be changed anyway. After that I would of course check for any codes and then check the fuel system pressure. This will diagnose any problems with the fuel pump.

When driving my van at 55 to 65 mph for 25 miles or so, then come to a stop my van wants to die . then i put it in park start it then put it in drive, it wants to die.


It sounds like you might have a sticking Torque Converter Lock-up Soleniod. It will act like you have a manual transmission and forgot to push the clutch in. (Jerky - jerky then dies) It is not real hard to change. The hard part is getting the side cover off of the transmission.

Engine dying while running full speed and sometimes at idle. Appears to be an ignition problem. At highway speeds the truck will restart itself while in drive. At slower speeds it has to be put in neutral...


This is an electrical problem, I had this last winter where the car was restarting or the starter was not disengaging. The problem was with the starter. the contacts that meet the plunger in the starter were grooved severely and binded with the contacts.
I had to replace the contacts inside the starter.

1992 Dodge 250 van, 318, Automatic - Dies when coming to a stop


I cannot see how adding a fuel additive would help to be honest. I would be looking for a split or leaking vacuum line, I have even seen a leaking evap canister before that caused a similar problem. Does the engine pull clean and strong when it is warm or at cruising speeds? Does it feel like its running lean or misfiring?

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls when brakes are applied


My 2000 Grand Cherokee had the same problem, without all the sputtering, it would just die approaching a stop. We could only keep it running by slightly pushing down on the gas petal when coming to a stop. I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor, but that didn't change anything. A new mechanic I found replaced the Idle Air Control Valve, and we've had no problems in a week.
