1999 Oldsmobile Alero 6 cyl Automatic 133000 miles

Look I Have a 1999 Alero, It only have 133000 miles on it. At times in idle my car will start shaking and stuttering then shut off. It take me like 2 times to turn it back on then when its on I can hear a whistling noise come from where my gas tank is and it drive at like 20mph by it self and I dont even have my foot on the petal. When I take it to get to see what was wrong it said I need some spark plugs so I get that change and it stopped for like a week and its doing it again it seem like when I go pass 45 and go into idle my car shuts off please tell me whats wrong.

That whistle is actually a good thing, but I think you may have a problem with the fuel pressure regulator, or even a dirty fuel filter.

I recently had to replace the MAP sensor in mine. 2.4 4cylinder, but it sounds like the same problem I was having with mine.
