Question about 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais

1 Answer

My 1991 Calais is starting to stall out at red lights & then will almost die unless I have my foot on the gas. We have already replaced the spark plugs & both of the ignition coils. It also will rev up real fast when being driven and is hard to stop (this has happended 1 time). Any ideas?

There is a good possibility the Mass Air Flow sensor is dirty.
You could also have low fuel pressure, or a vacuum leak, such as the EGR valve sticking

A practical alternative to replacing parts at random would be to take your vehicle in for a comprehensive diagnosis to identify the real cause of the problem(s).

I drive down the road and my 1991 cutlass calais stalls out and i already had a fuel pump put on and when it does this the fuse blows and i replace it and car starts back up? what else is wrong


If its the fuel pump fuse that is blowing then the sediment tray in the bottom of the fuel tank is moving back and forth causing a short.Drop fuel tank and tighten sediment tray nuts.

From red light truck started sputtering and and stalled out


Hello. The GMC Sierra has an electric fuel pump so you should ensure that its fuses and relays are working before checking it. You may need to clean your fuel pump or replace it if your gas tank is not empty, but your vehicle has difficulty getting fuel. The GMC Sierra comes in a variety of styles and trim levels that can affect the replacement fuel pump you choose.
