Question about 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

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

Rav 4 2004 stalls, sputters won't run changed plugs, ignition coil and camshaft senor.Put in cleaned used mass air thing.Sometimes code says cylinder one misfiring. What's the problem?


Change your plug wires. If you want to, switch wires with another cylinder. If the misfire moves to the new cylinder, you found your bad wire.

Died while driving


while engine is running grab the wire harness that leads into the distributor housing with a pair of needle nose pliers and wiggle the wires!!
if the engine stumbles or stalls that is your prob!!!
go to parts store and get a magnetic pickup assembly!!
i think they call it something else but its the same concept, just different because it's a dodge thing!!!

Check MAP sensor. If PCM gets wrong data from MAP sensor it should offset ignition timing and/or make fuel mixture too lean or too rich.

try buying new points (yes there called points) gap them then install them, they go under the distributor cap, by the condenser, also, the sparkplug wires go in a certin order so if your not sure call an michanics shop and tell them what kind of car you have and they'll tell you what order they should go in. also did you gap the spark plugs??

After driving about 3 to 5 mile when there has been alot of rain the engine starts running real rough spitting and sputtering--if you floor it it takes off as long as you keep it floored--doesn`t stall...


Engine light could be from the spitting and sputtering, sounds to me like maybe bad spark plug wires, possible an ecm issue, what kinda code is it giving you when the engine light comes on?
