Could be a plugged fuel filter or gas tank vent. A bad idle position or throttle position sensor could do this. You can check those with an ohmmeter in the ohm setting.

its called detonation. you must be running regular gas in it. switch to super for few tank fulls. it will stop, but as soon as you put back regular, the noise will come back.nothing that will hurt the car, just annoying sound.

water in fuel. put some water remover or gas line antifreeze in and keep tank full. the reason its worse after sitting is because the water sinks to bottom of tank and then the car is trying to run on just water. after driving it mixes with fuel

Where the fuel pump inlet sucks gas from the fuel tank, there is usually a little mesh bag protecting the pump from sucking in particles from the fuel tank. You may want to check and make sure it hasn't come loose or has a hole in it allowing you fuel pump to **** in dirt. When your pump is off, the suction goes away allowing the dirt to go back into the tank. When it's on, it'll **** the dirt back up causing loss of fuel.

Rough idle, cruise control also stopped working


Sounds like you could have gotten some water in your fuel tank from that fill up. Go to a autoparts store and get a product to put in the tank that takes care of water in fuel. Use it when you fill the tank up a few times after and hopefully it goes away. Whenever you can't sustain power in the engine or it runs rough then your cruise control will constantly be shut off because the engine doesn't have the power to keep the speed up and should go away once your engine is running clean again.

Good Luck

Here is the common cause of engine hesitation, surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and (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, Get a can of THROTTLE BODY cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, 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.

1988 olds 98 sets engine codes 41,48, and 63. stalls intermittently, but starts up again and runs fine. Before it stalls, the speedomoter blips down to half the speed and goes back up to the correct speed.


41- cam sensor reading, 48- EGR , 63- cruise control, 20 mph or more over set speed ( sounds like the speedo prob ).My thinking is the cam sensor code and egr code contribute to your stalling problem . Clear computer codes by pushing OFF and HI on A/C panel ( if its an AUTOMATIC CLIMATE CONTROL )ater reading codes. Then drive till problem occurs again and the light comes on. Now, read the CURRENT CODES, and that might eliminate one the codes / causes. Hope this helps
