Question about 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1 Answer

Car spits and sputters and stalls after driving a while

We changed the Cranck Senor, the plugs and wires, and the Ignition control moduale . It ran fine for a few days. Once i drove it 40 miles it started spitting and sputtering again and stalled. It starts back up after sitting for a few minutes but will drive a little bit and start acting up again.

Sounds like a fuel pump problem,with fuel pumps u can have pressure but not enough volume,try goin up a steeper hill in 2nd gear and get about 3000 rpms on the engine and see if it really drops out bad and is really gutless,if that happens without a check engine light coming on it might be yur pump and u should also replace the fuel filter at the same time,hope this helps

Fuel injected or carb? Make sure fuel line itself is clear. Some pumps are designed to self regulate (carb systems) some continually pump and a psi regulator sends back the excess fuel back to the tank (fuel inj systems) If the line is obstructed then pump can't deliver fuel fulltime.

If you think pump is not on consistent, try running a dedicated wire through a switch directly to the pump. If it works then you are looking for an electrical fault going to pump. Good luck.

You have two pumps,I guess you know that ,if you already did one. Did you check fuel pressure at the rail and check out the electronic pressure regulator? What codes are coming up and do they stay set?

97 a6Q turns over but no spark is present

If this is a v 6, they are equipped with three sensors. One for each of the cams and one on the crank shaft. These sensors must be tatally in syc. or the computor will turn off the power to the injectors and the power to the plugs. This occurs when the timing belt jumps a cog or two.
