electrical is the weakest link-you may have a computer with issues and before replacin a reprogram should be considered--what did vehicle scan tell you?

Are you getting a sweet-smelling and white exhaust too? What you describe is due to a failed head gasket. Coolant is leaking into the cylinders and causing the bad idle (coolant isn't combustable).

Take it to a shop to get a compression check on your cylinders - you'll see one or two of them much lower than the others. Replace the head gasket and you'll be set.

1992 olds 88 stalls. after it sits for a half


Is the Service Engine Soon (or Check Engine) light illuminated on the instrument panel? If so, then have someone pull the codes and post them back here. Autozone will do this for you at no cost.Caution: don't purchase any parts after reading the codes on their recommendation! If no codes, then suspect either a bad crankshaft sensor or camshaft sensor. There are other possibilities too, but these are primary. I have seen MANY bad crank sensors do exactly what your describe without setting a code.

Hi, the 4.3 liters have an injection system on them that can leak and will show up as a misfire. it is common but elusive to find. you might consider taking the van to a repair shop to have the problem diagnosed and go on from there.

My 1998 Olds 88 has been stalling and running rough.


Check and clean the IAC valve. Idle Control Valve. Use brake cleaner or carburater cleaner . Remove the duct work from the air filter assembly. It is located just inside . Run the engine at 1200 rpms and spray the valve. The valve can also be removed and cleaned.
