Do a compression test.if there is blow by and there is excess crankcase pressure,or a defective pcv ,there could be oil in the throttle body,as the crankcase gasses that are supposed to be re burned contain oil.if there is in the range of 200000 km,it is possible.

Why does my 99 pontiac grand prix gtp supercharge keep stalling

I would check the idle air control valve before replacing anything.
The computer regulates the idle speed by controlling the amount of air entering the intake thru the throttle body.
The valve could be faulty, or the throttle body can be gummed up.
Is the check engine light on ?

96 camery sometimes stalls when come to stop or sitting idling. new plugs,rotor,cap, wiresair filter, o ring on distributor cause oil getting in, throttle body gasket,cleaned throttle body, did unplug

The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

The check engine light is on and the car is idling high and jerking while stopped?Does anyone know whats wrong with it. I have a 2009 chevy hhr. Thanks

No one is going to know what is wrong with it. You must find out why the engine light is on. The PCM has detected a fault in one or more of its systems. In order to know what the fault may be you must retrieve the codes stored in it. Most auto part stores will hook up a generic OBD II code reader for free. But since its an 09, it should be under warranty. If you tinker with it, can't fix it so then take it to the dealer, they may deny your warranty claim because you worked on it first.

My 1997 chevrolet astro van engine light is on and i can strated it up but after 5mins when i press on the gas the engine shut off and soon as i strated it back up engine idle high and thin come back down...

You need to see what codes are stored. That will tell you why the engine light is on and more than likely why its running poorly. It may also keep you from spending more money by just throwing parts at it.
Many auto parts store will hook up a code reader for free to help you out.... and help them make a sale.

What would make oil come out of the throttle body on a 96 s-10 blazer?

check your pcv valve your crankcase may not be getting proper can find it on one of the valve covers. its a plug in directly into the valve cover and it allows for proper ventilation to the bottom of motor. when one gets clogged,they tend to **** oil into the throttle body of the motor. thank you for choosing

Code P2158/ Throttle Body

You most likley need to replace the whole unit. But without diagnosing it its all a guess. Look at it this way. You would of already spent a couple hundred at least to place one small part. If your wrong your now going to have to spend about $500 for the whole unit plus anothe diag possibly.

Wont shift into 2nd gear revs high until it finally goes into 3rd

If there is a Auto Zone around your area, have the blazer scanned for any DTC codes that is related to the transmission issues. It could be a fault sensor, bad wires, or bad solenoid in the valve body. The scan should help indicate if there is an electrical issues or it's going to be mechanical. You can try adding a transmission additive to flush out the system and then replace the transmission filter and oil. Make sure you flush out all the transmission oil, it could be as simple as the 2nd and 4th solenoids are seized with dirt and not activating. Good luck and keep me posted. The solenoid is in the valve body and is not that expansive for the parts, you just have to find a good transmission shop that will fix this simple problem and not try to get you to put in a new transmission.
