The mileage flip on it a wile ago now.

I can drive for about 4 miles then it was start to studded some. It can then stall out or sounds like the engine can speed way up and the oil light will come on for a little. Seems like if I just keep the gas peddle in the same place not move it any at all it will not stall out. If it does stall out I can't start it. It seems like it's not getting any gas. I can wait about 4 minutes then it will start again! So I guess it's something heating up.

I replace the fuel filer and the fuel pump on it. Did not help. I don't want to spend more $ on it guessing what's wrong. I thought some one else would have the same problem but did not find it here so just asked.

What I would recomend is get a can of mass air flow cleaner and clean the mass air flow unit. Let me know if that helps or not.

I cleaned the "mass air flow unit" with contact cleaner I have. It's easy to do. Don't have to take off a lot of things to get to it.

Tested the car. After just over 2 miles not pushing on the gas peddle any it engine speed up for about 2 sec. Then all OK.

Other times when it did that the check oil light would come up for a little.

I talked to some people and they said it could be the catalytic converter that my cost $1000! But can get a generic one for about $200 but only last about 2 to 3 years.

But I like to know what's wrong with it and not be wrong. Seems like some one else this would of happen to and they know what it was.

Thank you.

Do you have or can you borrow a digital multi meter? I would like to have you test the TPS (throttle possition sensor). Let me know and we will go from there.
