Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue
My 1999 olds intrigue----under 2000 rpms engine runs smooth, when accelerate engine breaks up badly. If i back off excellaerator and then give it gas it runs smoother until i accelerate again faster. Backing up engine breaks up even at low speed. On highway if i keep it steady at 70 mph engine ok. If i accelerate breaks up . Could it be a vacuum hose, a bad fuel pump etc. P.S. Since this started my gas gage is constantly wacky all over the place,I.E. when tank low gage says full , one second its on empty then full or half tank or etc. HELLLLLLLPPPP MMMMEEEEE
Sounds like you have a bad electrical connection, The crank senser wiring getting into something the ground wire for the engine or the battery being dirty or loose. The only way to check is to disconnect and clean and reconnect tightly, cleaning if nessary. I've cleaned connections that looked clean and reconnected them and the problems were solved. You may have to reconnect many things and it'll be fixed but you won't know what you did to fix it. sort of sounds like the motormounts are allowing the motor to move around too much and the wiring is being pulled on. Recent repairs and wiring around the moving parts are likly as the fanbelt may be touching the wireing somewhere and when you add the load it pulls into troble. plug wires and spark plugs will doe this but not act diffent from forward to reverse. With someone holding the car with the brake and the hood open have the driver put the car in gear and watch the motor move. it can move some but not much try it in reverse too. you may notice wher the wires are getting in troble. or see a spark that shouldn't be happening. everything should look like it's in nice order no oil on stuff and all connectors and wiring reuted thoght holders and tihgtly in place
