Try pulling the vacuum line off of the EGR valve when the engine is warm and starts to sputter. If it runs good cold and then dies when warm and won't start again until the engine cools it is most likely a bad or sticking EGR valve. Try the procedure to confirm it is the EGR. You can check the internet for location and an image of the EGR valve for your specific car. Please rate me on this answer.

Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

Your TCC soleniod may be sticking or bad. The Torque Converter Clutch may be staying engaged when you come to a stop this very evident if you drive over 35 mph and you have this problem and it will only occur when the vehicle is warm. this may!! be your problem if you meet the above criteria.

The car starts fine and runs good but when i come to a stop it will die, but here is the problem it will start right back up but when i put it in gear r,d,1,2, the car will just die again.


Your solenoids inside the transmission may be bad, try to unplug the 4 wire connector to the front of the transmission to see if the problem still continues, if it doesn't then its the solenoids causing the problem, they stay engaged into gear thus car dies and when you put on park, it starts fine again, when you shift it dies again. I had the same problem, changed the all solenoids fix my problem. Hope it helps.

Turns off after driving it for a few miles it will turn on again but once I put it in gear it will turn off again have to let it cool off till I could get it running again...


This could be a couple of different problems. You said it dies after it gets warm. Is this just like when you stop at a stop sign? And you say it starts back up but dies when you put it in gear? If you restart it and leave it in park it won't die??? Just dies if you put it in gear? I think it might be your torque converter clutch solenoid.

1990 cavalier, my problem is my car starts and runs fine but dies as soon as i put it in gear. but it will run all day in park or neutral.


open the hood, on the side of the transmission is a blue plug, unplug it and try it again, if this fixes it the lockup converter solenoid in the transmission is messed up.

Dies upon stopping,start back up,dies when put in gear


try unplugging the one plug in front of trans it has 2 or 3 wires in it . its below the battery it is the lockup solinoid and they go bad and keep the trans in lockup mode and will do what your saying.
