Engine Performance problem
1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140, 00 miles
Have a 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera 4 cyl.
Just in the past 3 days, car has started stalling when I slow down at an intersection to make a stop. Car will sputter at low speed and then die. Car will also continue to stall out more frequently after the initial stall occurs, up to 3 times within a 3 or 4 mile distance.
Also seems as if it is about to do the same thing when I go down large dips and then immediately back up a hill.
Also occurs if I go down a hill and then up an incline that bears to the right.
The car will not stall until it has been driven for 15 miles or so, so cold cranking and short distance trips are not a problem.
Have replaced the catalytic converter to no avail. Have had fuel filter problems in the past.
Is this an IAC problem or perhaps my fuel pump?
Thanks in advance.
have the same problem?
