Question about 1991 Pontiac Grand Prix

2 Answers

Idle problem As of couple of days ago my car was fine. I installed a fender and door the car was fine. So I drove it(couple days later) and noticed when I came to a stop the idle would surge up and down. then it would shut off. Starts right back up and no trouble when running. Its a 91 Grand prix se with the 3.1 V6.As of today I drove it about 70 miles and no trouble till I come to a stop then it would surge and almost shut off till I bump the throttle then it would be fine going again.Sometimes I when I start it the idle would jump all the way up to around 2000 rpms the drop. Iam thinking it might be the idle position sensor.. Thanks for any help....

Check your relay and underhood fuse pane to see if you pinced some wiring

If your "check engine" light is turn on, I suggest scanned the PCM to know exactly what fault code is stored there. Additionally, could be some problem with the "temp sending unit".

Have a local shop or auto parts store read the fault codes, it sounds as if you may have an o2 sensor that is out of range.

Sounds like you have a small bit of dirt or grit in the fuel system when accelerating it is drawn with enough force to cut off the fuel supply then is released when engine at Idle.
1 run liquid fuel line/injector cleaner in 1 tank
2 check fuel lines for debris
3 change fuel filters
4 have fuel tank flushed
here is trouble shooting order less expense to greater.

I think your problem might be your fuel relay which is situated next to the fuse box in the engine compartment.
