Question about 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88

Check Engine Lite

When car is running for 5 to 10 minutes the "Check Engine" light comes on. After about a half hour it begins to sputter and after about an hour it stalls while idle. A friend ran his computer on the car and he says its the camshaft sensor. Could this all boil down to a bad EGR or O2 sensor?

    After my car has been running for a few minutes, the idle gets rough and when sitting at a light or stop sign, it tries to stall.

2006 Jeep Liberty - While pulling boat the check engine light comes on and it begins to sputter and stall. After I remove the boat and drive it, the light goes off and no more sputter and stalling?


The check engine light will come on when the management computer detects a fault that can affect exhaust emissions. When that happens the computer switches to a get you home programme and records a fault code.

A code read is required to discover the fault which should then be verified by independent tests before wasting money chasing down blind alleys.

P0171 and P0174 are telling you that each cylinder bank is running too lean. P0300 is telling you there is a misfire, possibly caused by the other codes. This is why the engine is running rough.

The traction control uses the engine, so when the check engine light is on the traction control is disabled.
Depending on the code, it could be something in the wiring instead of the sensor.

Car runs 6 minutes then stops. Fuel pressure good.


well since you already swapped the ecu that should rule out the question I would say sensor problem.

Check the fuel filter to see if it is plugged.
Remove the fuel filter, and blow air through it in the normal direction of fuel flow. You should be able to blow through it very easily. If it feels restricted, try blowing through it the opposite way, and if there is a lot of dirt coming out, you have found a common cause of this problem. Hope this helps.

Seems like its choking


first you have to check for code with scanner , sounds like you have sensor problem , (coolant temp sensor map sensor etc). it could be a fuel delivery issue like lean condition . but the code for engine light will guide you in right direction. good luck
