My 1996 oldsmobile 88 has been running terrible for the last month and gets worse every week. It won't go when I have the gas pedal floored sometimes, and then it will slowly get up to speed but takes...


Hello there good man or woman

Lets start off like this there is 50 different things that can cause these issues but will start with the simple things in a list. So here it goes

1. bad spark plugs (carbon fouled,fuel fouled,oil fouled, heat glazed, or just worn out rounded electrode's )
2. spark plug wires (there is no simple way to check this but there cheap and easy to try)
3. distributor cap & igniton rotor (or coil pack if so equipped) could be corroded carbon glazed heat glazed again thought both rotor button and distributor cap are cheap and easy to change. If it is a coil cheap to and just as easy on both this is were plug wires connet to on the oppsite end of spark plugs.
4. coil pick up (this sits underneath distributor cap and rotor and is cheap and easy to fix aswell)
5. clogged air filter
6. bad pcv valve
7. bad egr valve
8. bad fuel pressure regulator
9.bad fuel pump or clogged strainer
10. vaccum line leaking or off

I know with all that being said may sound overwelming but most are easy to fix and cheap this is what i would so first do a good tune up this includes new spark plugs , plug wires, air filter , pcv valve,fuel filter distributor cap and rotor (or coil pack if so equipped ) .

That will most likley fix your problem

If it helps please leave 4 thumbs up and if it works a testomnial thanks

Ai have a 88 chevy s-10 blazer it stall when i drive a block like it starts to cut out does it need a fuel filter, if so is it under the truck or does it need spark plugs only or does air filter only...


I suggest a full tune up.

1. Air filter.
2. Fuel filter, carbureted engine filter is located inside the line fitting where it attaches to the carburetor. Fuel injected engine filter is located in-line under the truck near the tank.
3. Oil and filter.
4. Spark plugs and wires.
5. Distributor cap and rotor if applicable.
6. PCV valve.

1988 ford tempo seems to stall when the gas petal is pushed, then catches up. Clean air filter and fuel filter. good plugs, wires, rotor, distributor cap.


CLEAN THROTTLE PLATE HOLD IT OPEN AND CLEAN WITH CARB SPRAY ON A RAG AND IF YOU HAVE AN OLD TOOTHBRUSH THAT WORK GREAT ALSO (THROTTLE PLATE IS WERE THE AIR TUBE FROM THE AIR FILTER GOES) ITS A BUTTERFLY THAT OPEN AND CLOSES WITH THE GAS PEDAL

2002Honda civic ex jerks and hesitates when not accelerating


I would have the catylic convertor checked.
Then have the transmission check . I am guessing the transmission is automatic. The torque convertor could be shuttering when slowing down to a stop.
