1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette overheating


Is it leaking antifreeze underneath the engine at all when it sits overnight? If so I would say the water pump is shot. If it isn't leaking, it could still be the water pump but it might(hopefully) just need a new thermostat. And driving it when it's hot like that to the point where it starts to run rough means you run it too much like that and your engine will blow up and there is probably already damage. So check it out before driving it to much more.

Acts like old fashion Vapor Lock


but is NOT.
EFI never does that, for many reasons.
High pressure system.
Pump in rear.
runs in a loop and will not build any air there or gasses.
my guess you mean?
  1. What engine option , size and cyl count.
  2. Does it misfire (rough and violent misfire, is that)
  3. Does it bog, ? hot or cold engine or both?
  4. Does the cluster waring CEL lamp glow running?
  5. Did you SCAN it? yet, and for sure running?
  6. did you do the 60,000 mile tune up yet? (repeats)
  7. Engine compression good, and fuel pressure at spec.
  8. by now ,it's found. i bet. but. if not ,tell the story. we can find them all.
Stalling? Vapor lock does stall engines. (carbs)
MISFIRING?
BOGGING when?
lost engine power, same.
is the lose of power up hills and for sure wide open throttle?
lost power only with fast right foot and recovers.???

these questions find cause fast.

1998 Mazda 626 RPM dropping problems and then engine stalls with no engine code thrown


Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Driving 60mph power drops as though out of gas. Coast 2-300 yds pump gas pedal van back to normal. Now at home it starts then stalls, will only run 5-10 seconds. New plugs&wires distributor cap and...


signs of a bad fuel pressure regulator. the vehicle runs rough, the engine will not start usually in the mornings. many times engine starts but stalls shortly after starting. a bad regulator can result in fouled plugs. black soot on plugs, blake smoke from tailpipe, running rough, stalling. you could have residue in fuel tank and need to change fuel filter again. have a very good day !!

Stalling automatic


You need to clean the throttle body and idle air bypass valve with spray carb cleaner, hold the idle high while you do this as the engine will try to stall, disconnect battery when done for 5 minutes then reconnect and drive a few days to relearn idle strategy.
