Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

Cuts Off My car keeps cutting on while driving and after a few minutes it will crabk right back up no problem. I have put a new transmission and thermostat in the car. The diagnostic machine is pulling up nothing the only thing it says is that I am manually turning the key and cutting the car off, when the car is cutting off automatically. Please help me, because these mechanics here don't know squat.

98/88 delta oldsmoble cuts off while driving what could it be


The warning lights on the dash will come on when the engine dies.
If it dies and starts up like you turned the key it could be a relay or other electrical problem. May be tough to find if you can't test components while it is not starting.
I assume the check engine light is not on when the engine is running.

When driving suddenly the engine cuts out.


I heave the same problem on my Corsa B 1.0 2000, engine cuts out, and whe it happens, I hear one of the relay under the right side of the dash buzzing. After a couple of minutes, starts like nothing happend.
So far I manage to find that the speed sensor is faulty, when I tap him the car stops. I order a brand new one, but I'm not sure that was the issue.
I order also a Opel Tech2 tester from ebay and it has to arrive next week, then I can see the error code.

Car cuts out sometimes when you are driving. Car sometimes struggles to start. It does start eventually and can drive perfect for a few days, then it suddenly cuts out when you are driving and it appears...


I had that problem. I unscrewed the idle control valve (near the air intake), applied contact cleaner spray and all dirt came out. After it was dry, I put it back on its place. No problem ever since.

Speedo will cut out when driving


Sounds like your "speed sensor" is failing. When it fails it will cause irregular shift patterns and engine idle speeds.

My car will start and then after a minute or two of running, the car will idle down and cut off but I can start it right up again and still get the same results. Whenever I put it into gear to drive it...


Sounds like a possible clogged fuel filter or bad fuel pump. The system provides and initial extra pressure to pressurize the system then pump pressure drops to normal. If pressure is low or filter clogged decreasing available volume the symptoms you describe are the result.
