1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette 3.8 liter engine

I have a problem with the 3.8 engine in my 1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette Van. The engine runs fine at idle however at wide open trottle the engine surges. By putting the trottle on the floor, the engine runs as if you are depressing and then letting up on the trottle. I have not been able to retrieve any codes. Any suggestions?

Have a fuel pressure test done to determine if proper pressure is there. At very least change fuel filter.

When the belt jammed the door, it probably broke the actuator. See if your parts store can get you a reman actuator. Or go to a salvage yard.
