Have a 1995 Buick Regal. Car stalls when braking at a stop sign or braking into a left or right turn.RPMs drop to 500 then stalls without warning.Car starts right up with no problem and runs great.


Do you hear a sucking noise from under the hood when you apply the brakes? You could have a bad brake booster venting too much engine vacuum when applying the brakes causing the engine to die.

Why does my '88 Mercury Grand Marquis w/5.0 stall when put in gear?


I am thinking that the idle rpms are too low and the tune up is not good enough to compensate for the drop in rpms when the transmission is engaged
normal idle rpms on an automatic should be around 850rpms as they will drop 250rpms on gear selsction
any idle speed around 500 rpms will die when fear is engaged

95 buick lesabre quits running when put into gear


could be a couple of things because when u put a car in gear the idle goes down so check see if it dies while ur sligthly on the gas to keep it running but be carefull.if the car dies anyway then u could have a jammed or locked up torque converter and if so the only way to know for sure is to unbolt the flywheel from the converter and giving it a try

My 1991 Buick Regal (3.1 engine) use to start a high RPMs and then slowly, as the engine warms up, the RPMs would come down to about 800, which is the normal. However a few weeks ago, it started to start...


Hi,
You need to get your engine coolant thermistor checked and tested. This is what tells the ECM when the engine temperature is at normal working temperature and turns the idle down.
But when the idle won't come down from cold to warm this is usually the main fault.
Hope this helps.
Thanks
Jason

It's probably the mass airflow sensor and/or oxygen sensors.

My 1998 Olds 88 has been stalling and running rough.


Check and clean the IAC valve. Idle Control Valve. Use brake cleaner or carburater cleaner . Remove the duct work from the air filter assembly. It is located just inside . Run the engine at 1200 rpms and spray the valve. The valve can also be removed and cleaned.
