Bucking, slow acceleration, & shuts off

My oldsmobile is acting up. when i crank it up it will start bucking for a minute and when i start driving it is really slow to accelerate then it will burst into acceleration. when i get to a stop sign and stop and then press the gas to go it will sometimes shut off. I have had a tune up, replaced fuel filter, I put in gas treatments when I fill up my tank. Please help!!!

It can be couple of thing Try a fuel injector cleaner or new fuel injectors.it can be vacuum leak. Engines need a vacuum to run especially at idle which is when your car dies. It could be a stuck EGR.
If the check engine light comes on it will store a code so take it to a shop and pay them to read the codes. This may give you a starting point.

My Oldsmobile Cutlass goes really slow when I go up hills. What could be the problem?


Tune up? Might want to start there. Usually on a tuneup I suggest plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air filter, and a fuel filter. Need more info on how it is acting as far as check engine light, bogging down, bucking, just doggy etc.

Shuts off when its hot and usually after fueling up.............acts like its not getting fuel....................usually after fueling up when car is hot............leave the car sitting for a couple...


I would replace the crank sensor and never pack fuel into your gas tank. First click when full stop pumping gas. Next time it does this pour or spray some water on the crank sensor and see if it will start, if so problem solved.

I have a 1991 oldsmobile cutlass ciera


Igniton module prabably is the problem. Without testing it when it does not start we are just guessing but usually when it acts up only when the car gets hotter it usually points to an ignition issue.

Car cuts of after 20-45 minutes of driving


sounds like clogged fuel filter or even clogged catalic converter. filter costs under 10 bucks, converter, i don't know, it's a bit more but there is a test a mechanic can do called a back pressure test.
