Idle control valve is what i would guess. Those are the same exact things it would do to your car. i would putt it out and clean it with like carb cleaner if its dirty and put it back to see if cleaning it works. Otherwise i would replace it. Good luck i hope cleaning it works so you dont have to spend any money.

I have an '87 Olds Calais 3 liter engine that idles rough, hesitates on acceleration, and just recently stalls and won't start.


Karl, have you confirmed good fuel pressure? It sounds like a weak fuel pump to me. Is your Check Engine light on? If so what are the codes in the computer?

My 1993 olds cutlass supreme idles fine until you step on the gas or when your going down the road at higher speeds than idle it has a hesitation what's the problem?


A flat spot on acceleration could be low fuel pressure or a faulty throttle position sensor. Could also be a vac leak such as a faulty EGR valve.
Is the check engine light on ?

1992 olds cutlass supreme wont accelerate when pushing the gas pedal


Check oil first, Low oil sensor will shut down if more than a quart low. Change fuel filter, could be fuel starvation, change the air filter. stopped up air filter will put MAF sensor out of range. PERFORM OBDII SCAN SOON.

1991 Olds Cutlass Engine stalls and hesitates when pressing on the peddle. Sometimes will not crankover I'm thinkinking maf or egr First (not sure if that year has egr)


I might be able to help you on this. I will you two options
1.Sounds like your fuel mixture is too lean or breather pipes from inlet manifold are leaking or idle sensor valve faulty.
2. check your clutch sensor. It might be disconnected. this also leads to engine stalling problem

1991 olds cutlass calais 2.5 engine ran the self dignostics and got code 33 need to what code 33 is.


It's the maf/map sensor circuit.
maf--- mass air flow sensor
map--- manifold absolute pressure.--- check the small vaccum hose from the map sensor to the source, could be brittle and leaking air.
Have both the map and maf sensor checked for proper voltage, one or both could be bad. A repair shop shouldn't charge much to do that.

Will a faulty E.G.R.valve on a 1988 Olds.Cut.Sup.FWD cause a hot engine to stall when stopping at corners?


well it will casue it to stall if the egr is stuck open and you stop at a light or stop sign,due to it beinge stuck open the open egr valve acts like a vacum leak,,,,ive also seen bad fuel pumps and fule filter to cause a stall while hot and cornering
