2 things to check 1 check to see if your throttle body and plate are free of carbon build up if not clean and try,#2 torque convertor clutch solenoid sticking on and locks the convertor in which will cause stall when you put it in drive that will need the trans side cover to come off and the solenoid checked or replaced.

I have a 88 grand am Se 2.0 OHC turbo, automatic the turbo does not work. my problem is that it runs great for about 1/2 hour driving until it gets warmed up. I come to a light it starts to surge and...


The TCC solenoid in the transmission needs to be replaced. It is under the side cover. It controls the converter to lock up for better fuel mileage. If you want to drive car until you get it fixed you can un-plug the connector going to the transmission on the front of transmission. This will keep it from going to lock up mode and keep it from stalling until you can fix it. Common problem.

Car hesitates/stalls when engine is warm and car starts to move.


Sounds like a bad motor mount, pop the hood and see if the motor shakes or moves rapidly when u put it in gear holding down the brake.

1999 olds alero stalls when put in gear


Runs fine when not put in gear? Sounds like transmission is stuck in "lock-up". Need to go to transmission or full automotive shop for repair. This is not something you want to attempt on your own unless you are experienced with removing valve bodies and solenoids from the inside of transmissions.

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.

1989 chevy celebrity stalling


seems to be like you might have a transmission problem possible with the lock up solenoid system,
try to pull codes and see if you get any codes from the car with a scan tool,
some transmission codes will not turn the light on.
