HAD 2001 OLDS ALERO COMPUTOR CHECK SAID # 2 CYLINDER WAS MISSFIRING CHANGED #2COIL PACK STILL DIES WHEN SLOWING DOWN OR STOPING BUT STARTS RIGHT BACK UP DIES WHEN STOPPING OR SLOWING DOWN ALSO DIES AFTER...


Sounds like #2 is still missing. Misfires can be caused by an ignition problem, a fuel problem, or a mechanical problem where there is no compression in the cylinder.
Okay, you have changed the coil. Now try changing spark plugs and the spark plug wire-Swap #2 and #1 spark plugs and the plug wire too, and see if misfire follows now on #1. If it does, bad plug or bad plug wire. Of course you could just drop a new plug into #2 and see what happens. If no change, swap the plug wires and test again. If still misfiring, check the spark at end of plug wire-you need to see a blue snapping spark to know the ignition is working good on that #2.
If you have spark there, need to check if the injector is pulsing and spraying fuel into the cylinder. You might be able to feel the injector pulse if you hold a finger lightly on the injector while engine is running-should be a steady, rather rapid click feel to the injector. If not sure, have the injector circuit checked. You can buy an inexpensive "noid light" at auto parts stores, one that fits your injector circuit, plug it into #2 injector, and crank the car over or run the engine and watch the light-if working, the noid light will be blinking. This verifies the circuit is good. If the spark plug is wet with gas when pulled out, that would verify that injector is spraying fuel into the cylinder.
If still no help, have the compression checked in #2. Low compression from a valve problem or head gasket problem can cause misfires.
Good luck.

2003 Lincoln LS 3 9 V8 runs rough and die s


Pull the MAF sensor and give it a cleaning the correct way.Sometimes something shorts those probes(tiny wires and delicate) and your engine will cut a shine on you.
Look up how to clean the MAF sensor if you don't know how. don-ohio

2001 olds alero.. 4 cyl.. it dies at stop lights and moving in slow traffic...? we think its electriacl but seems more to be the fuel injection.. i have several lights on trac off/ check engine/ etc.. any...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Since your check engine light is on, take it to Autozone or Advanced to have it scanned. This light is on because the computer has detected a problem with your vehicle. You need your computer hooked up. It cost nothing to have this done and they will tell you what is wrong, which can solve your issue without guessing. You could have a clogged fuel filter or air filter. Check to make sure there are no vacuum leaks also. Make sure all wires and hoses are hooked up. Sounds like it may be air related. You could have a bad 02 sensor. Get the test done. There is a good chance it will show what is wrong on the computer. No sense waisting your time and money when you don't have to. Like I said, they do it for free and it only takes a few seconds to run the test. Hope this helps. Ricky

2000 Alero idles low and dies when stopped.


How does it idle when you first start or idle when hot.
On the top of the air intake tube there is a small screw which should when screwed in speed up the idle and if it dosent work or it idles fine when cold or warm at idle then its your GEARs are binding up and there's not to much you can do about that ........sorry

Truck dies when i stop or slow down


Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Engine kills when engine warm


You need to replace your IAC (idle air control valve). The IAC, like it sounds, control the idle of your car. When they go bad they will cause the low idle and stalling. The IAC is located on the throttle body and is usually held on with a couple of screws. It is an easy relatively cheap fix that you can take care of by yourself. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!
