My '96 olds 88 royale ls supercharge started sputtering and idlying roughly on my way home from work. I called my mechanic and ran it up to him after notifying him of the problem and that the check engine light was now on he put it on the computer tapped something in the car with a hammer and the sputtering went away. He said it was the GSR or something like that.. I know I sound like an ignorant woman but in laymens terms what is an GSR... Or the actual part called since I neglected to ask him due to being so tired

Its a EGR Valve( exhaust gas recirculation) that is an emmisions device it recirculates exhaust gases back thru the engine to be burnt again to make the engine run cleaner and to help cool the combustion chamber...If the valve sticks and exhaust gases are going back into the enging at the wrong time that would cause your concern..sometimes you can remove and clean the EGR VALVE and ports.and sometimes you will have to replace the valve Hope this helps Good Luck

94 olds 88 want start

yes it can be the security system, find the two all white wires at the bottom of the steering column and cut them and solder the correct ohm resistor in between you will need an ohm meter to measure the resistance of the chip on the ignition key then install that omh resistor to the wires.
