Question about 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

MY 1994 Ciera 3.1 v-6 with approx. 58,000 on a rebuilt engine has been stalling out more often then not when I slow down to yeild or stop. Most times it will turn right over but sometimes it takes a couple of tries.. I have tried Premium gas, liquid fuel injection additive and gas additive.. The air filter is fine, all fluids are fine, belts are fine... Could this be a dirty fuel filter and/or a vacuum line?? Thanks.....

By what you are telling me it sounds like you have a very large vaccum leak, the 3.1 engines where known for leaking intakes. what i would do is get a sqirt bottle with water in it start the car and squirt all around the intake if the car starts to run even worse then you have found the problem. that is where i would start.

94 Lincoln TC engine stalls when slowing/stopping


Most common cause of stalling for Lincolns in that era is the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). It regulates fuel mixture, idle speed etc. A bad TPS will usually act up in one of two ways:
  1. When cold, car continually stalls
  2. When warm, car stalls when slowing down (especially if AC is on)
As far as valve cover oil leak, it's a problem that should be addressed to keep oil from fouling your spark plugs but highly unlikely to be the cause of your stalling problem. Hope this answers your question. All the best.

Engine locks up and stalls when coming to a stop. To clear it up I have to put the transmission in reverse and ref the engine while holding the brakes. 1994 olds cutlass ciera.


this sounds like the transmission torque converter clutch is not releasing, it causes this exact symptom. Have a local trans shop test drive it, in these tough times they will do that for free hoping to get the repair job.

Vibration when in gear, and stalling.


The problem is the torque converter solenoid. I had it happen on my 94 Cavalier a few years back and was a cheap fix at the local car mechanic. What happens is the transmission warms up and hits a certain speed where the solenoid engages, but then it sticks and won't disengage until it cools down sufficiently. When it sticks, it causes the car to shake when slowing down and will snub out the engine if you come to a stop.
