Question about 1996 Chevrolet Camaro

3 Answers

Stalling at speed 3.8 liter

1996 3.8 liter automatic stalls at speed 45 mph and above. It does not miss or sputter it just stops sometimes it will restart on its on without pulling over like you turned the ignition off and back on at highway speed
other times you have to pull over and restart. It acts like an ignition problem
but never sets a code in the ecm. Seems to occour when engine is warm.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated

    1996 Camero 3.8 135,000 miles stalls and check gages light comes on. Replaced temp sending unit and water pump cooling system flushed and refilled, oil is fresh and at proper level
    alternator replaced. It still stalls.

    It just stops it feels more like an ignition problem that is it stops no spit or sputter but then you can restart at once this is an intermittant problem have a new fuel filter will install Maybe fuel filter overheating? Would that not set a trouble code?

This sounds like a bad fuel system somewhere you have a blockage or a bad pump where the engine can not supply gas, to test this put the car in netural and rev the engine and see if it stalls if it does not rhen your speed limiter has a bad sensor and needs to be checked, OR you might have a bad transmission in one of the gears does it make any noise or does it just stop?

    no it prbly wouldnt set a trouble code, the engine simply doesnt know its not running the pc and every thing are standalone from the actual car, the computer might see that the temp is dropping but it doesnt think that there is anything wrong there i still would say its your speed limiter, this happens a exactly 45mph right? had this happen to my car but it happened at 63.2mph and the computer thought i was doing double because offaulty wiring on a speed sensor

Stalls sometimes when stopped at lights engine misses at stop


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

Hi, I have a 1995 Oldsmobile Achieva 2.3L, the problem I'm having is after driving over 45 mph and then comming to a stop it starts to shake and sputter and then dies out. The car is fine and I am able to...


First before you buy anything this sounds like the EGR Valve is stuck in the open position allowing exhuast gases into the intake manifold before it should,which would be above 45 mph.So try this take the EGR valve off and clean it with a non-chlronated brake cleaner and a wire brush or replace EGR Valve.Oh thats a 3-speed transmission.I don't think its the TCC solenoid but its located in the transmission on the valve body.

I was driving up 95 doing about 80 n when I got off the highway n went to a light my van just cut off


It could have overheated. run out of gas. stayed locked in high gear and stalled as it stopped. You did'nt say if it would restart? You did'nt say what engine? It can have a 2.4 liter 4 cyclinder a 3.0 liter V6, A 3.3 liter V6, or a 3.8 liter V6. It can have a 4 or 5 speed automatic transmission and the 4 cyclinder can have a manual transmission as well. It can be air condidtioned and problems with it can stall the motor. the battery can be low or dead and thiers not enough power to run the brake lights and the fuel pump both so the engine shuts down. It might restart if you turn off everthing and certainly the defroster and anything that uses electrical power.
