Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue

1 Answer

Had the fuel pump changed a few times in the last 6months, 01 Intrigue will still die while driving or not start periodically. Sometimes when starting it will run at half speed or sputter at half speed for a few seconds and then completely die. I get it towed to the garage and it starts fine. Could there be a loose connection or shorting wire after having the fuel tank taken in and out so many times?

Dear Sputtering Wonder........This might be a stab in the dark over the internet....but I've came across this problem a few times before....this could be a defctive fuel pressure regulator....located on top of the motor on the fuel rail. What happens is age ruptures the rubber diaphragm in the regulator and fuel just starts loading up into the cylinders.......resulting in a horribly idle and undesirable operation....the way to check this regulator is to pull the vacuum line off of it and see if fuel is spraying or you can smell it. If you can see it spraying out of the vacuum line attachment or can smell fuel....then it's time to replaced that regulator....HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

I have a similar problem. When I turn my car on my fuel pump comes on but my car shuts off. When I just turn on the ignition and not start it it will not come on its like I can not get power to my fuel pump. I have replaced the relays and fuel pump is only 6months old any ideas how to help? Car comes on and shuts off after a few seconds.

Car dies while driving, now it won't start sometimes


Could be a fuel pump that is going bad. Some times when fuel pumps go bad they cavitate and pump not just gas but also air. If you get too much air in the line and not enough gas the car won't start. Have a mechanic check your fuel line pressure.

Check fuel flter at fuel pick-up intank (looks like a small wire sock). Remove fuel filter and fitting at fuel rail. Blow out fuel lines w/about 35lbs air press. Ck electrical @ relay - should be 4 connectors - one is key on hot/one is always hot/one is ground and last is hot to fuel pump. Good Luck

sounds like your fuel pump is going out. One thought might be that the fuel filter is causing enough resistance to over heat the pump. I would check the fule pressure to determine a free flow of fuel.

2002 oldsmobile intrigue starts but stalls only once.


You have a bad crankshaft position sensor. When the thermostat opens on warmup, the auxiliary air pump starts up momentarily which causes a quick dip in battery voltage and drops the output from the crankshaft rotation sensor. the computer thinks the engine is not running and shuts down the fuel. If idling, engine will die, if moving sometimes will just hiccup.
