Do you have a check engine light? If so I'm betting air flow insufficient, This is cause by a vacuum hose that is either deteriated or has a hole. Run you hands over the vacuum hoses any of them that turns your hand black like playing with charcole replace them.
There is a process used by your local shops where they put a smoke machine to look for leaks.
That is the best place to start without changing the idle air control valve $$$$
Good Luck

If your check engine light is not on, it could be your fuel filter. I would check this first. The fuel filter is easy to change and is cheap. Usually only costing a few bucks. It is located shortly after the fuel tank on the fuel line running the length of the steel frame.

    When the fuel filter is clogged your car will struggle to get any fuel passing across the filter making your car seem slow and non-responsive.

Acting like it wants to cut of it run but it skipping when press gas or at stop light sometimes acts like it don wanna go


1st , i would check all of the plug wires to make sure that they are connected, then i would check all of the vaccum hoses to make sure that they also are corrected, and none of them have holes in them allowing a loss of vaccum. " how long has it been since you replaced the fuel filter, all of these can cause this problem, you will have to check each isssue out to get to the problem.

I have a 1995 Buick Regal with a 3.8 V6. Car will start just fine on a cold start but will not continue to run unless you hold the engine on at least 3000 rpms for about 30 seconds. it will then idle just...


i think you might be right it sounds like your engine is getting over fed fuel you are probably not getting very good fuel mileage either the 3.8 and 5.0 would defintely require the same volume of fuel it is probably playing havoc on the pressure regulators i would get another fuel pump and start there

Car stalls when stopped, cuts out when accelerating to HWY spds.


You could have a bad or intermittent fuel pump. Not a cheap thing to have.

An OBD 2 scanner can read fuel pressure on the drive to see if your fuel pressure drops off at odd times to confirm. It can also tell if there are transcient vacuum leaks at idle which the engines idle air control cant compensate for.

Do the plugs, wires and cap too.
