Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora
Just got a new Mass Air Flow because the code was coming up and because I was told that was why my car was stalling, but its still stalling when i'm stopped. Could it be because of the crankshaft sensor? Also, can this be fixed by an inexperienced mechanic (me)?? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
I have an 01 3.5 and had the same problem. I also bought a MAF . It still stalled. I gave the car a Z-Max treatment and I also took the air inlet hose off the throttle body. Used several rags with some alcohol to clean the inside of throttle body, the best I could w/o taking it off . Re-assembled and all seem to be well. The real culprit, I believe, is the AIC . It sticks closed at times. This is the upper control selenoid on the throttle body. I have done this procedure a couple of times, It is simple and you will be amazed how dirty it is inside.
