Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora

1 Answer

My 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora stalls out if I take my foot off the gas. It just can't seem to idle. To date I have put 4 mass airflow sensors, catalytic convertor, new computer, fuel pump, idle sensor, new spark plugs - I am getting ready to put in new spark plug wires, but have no confidence that this will help. It is scarey to drive because when I slow down to go into a curve, it stalls out and I can barely turn the wheel! Help! Thank you! Kat

Sounds like mass airflow sensor to me or your timing jumped. Probably high miles too, eh? Could possibly be voltage regulator but I highly doubt it.

Begin by checking for any ODB engine codes and go from there.
