Hello there:
you may want to take it to autozone and have them do a free diagnostics on it. to see if the fuel system ie. the fuel pump or filter is failing or if you just need a simple tune up.
best regards mike

My 1994 buick regal gran sport jumps a lot when at a stop sign or red light, but when i accelerate the problem goes away. also when in park my RPM's drops extremely low and it sounds as if its goi


This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

1994 Eihgty eight comes to a stop cuts off if i dont have foot on the brake and gas at the same time when I stop. It idilies fine in park what coud this


Here are the common cause of surges, cold stalls, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours.
To correct this problem I want you to get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

94 pontiac grand am stalls at stop lights/signs


Try checking for vavuum leaks. Possibly at the PCV valve. Had a friend whose 94 grand am 2.3 did the same thing... had two or three vacuum leaks and one of them was a totally shredded PCV hose. Hope this helps!

Engine stalls at stop lights and stop signs


sounds like the torque converter lock up might not be disengaging. You might also want to check for engine vacuum leaks. Does engine idle smoothly when in park or nuetral ? if the idle is good I would suspect torque converter problem.
