1994 Park Avenue. New battery (battery light on) oil light on (oil is fine) car dies when driving at low speeds. Service engine light on but no bad codes are detected when tested.


sounds like you could have a few problems. On the battery light it could be alternator. Test voltage at battery with car running, should be 13-14 volts. Oil light on could be oil level sensor on bottom of oil pan. Dying problem could be mass air flow sensor, coolant temp sensor, idle air valve.

if this vehicle has a mass air flow sensor look at the tube coming from throttle body to airbox your mass air flow sensor should be mounted in this tube if a tear or rip occurrs in this tube after the maf sensor when you put car in gear motor rocks rip opens and lets in air that the computer knows nothing about creating lean condition causing a stall also your torque converter clutch could be locked up causing stall once in gear

My 1990 toyota camry has been running poor. It seems to be missing and jumps and jerks. Off the line it just crawls until it hits 3,000 RPM then it runs fine. I have to downshift on any hill because it...


The mass air flow often goes bad on them. Did you have the vehicle scanned. Try unplugging the mass air flow and driving it. It is built into the air intake hose. If that does not change things, check the fuel pressure, and the throttle position sensor.

Hope this helped

Car sputters or dies when idling, but starts fine.


I suspect you have an idle circuit issue. When the thottle is closed, the throttle valve is almost closed (like 95%). The linkage on the throttle body is against the hard stop.
SO, when idling you need a way to let enough air into the engine to maintain an idle speed. The IAC, Idle Air Control valve is the way you do that and the engine computer controls the rate of air flow.
Sometimes it gets plugged up so you can clean it with a little carb cleaner. Might have to take it apart.
Also, you have a MAF, Mass Air Flow sensor that tells the computer how much air is flowing through the air cleaner intake at any time. The sensor gets coated with varnish and vies a false reading. Clean it gently with carb cleaner and a toothbrush.
Other than that, I would go to an auto parts store that can run a computer scan for free to see if you have any fault codes stored. They will tell you next stpes.

I assume you 2.0L SPI engine & not Zetec.
