I have a 1999 Olds Intrique 3.5 motor. It will start and run until it get warmed up, then the idle goes up and down then stalls. Then its hard to start, but will start. I have replaced the crankshaft sensor, TPS, and the electrical part of ing. Switch.

Have you checked and cleaned the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve? It's usually located on the top of the engine, passenger side. When clogged, it can cause these symptoms.

Ok. Using a multimeter, test the coil(s). Make sure the ground signal is getting to them properly once the engine heats up. Make sure they continuously receive voltage after the engine heats up.

Also check the camshaft position sensor, the crankshaft position sensor and the throttle position sensor. All while the engine is hot. Images attached to show locations.

I have done all the suggestions and nothing is helping. I just put my fuel pump tester on and it seems to be running a constant 35psi. When I start the car when it is cold it runs pretty good then when it warms up the idle start to go up and down then it goes way donw and stalls out Then it is hard to start.
