Engine Performance problem
1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass 6 cyl Automatic 175, 00 miles
I'll try to explain my issue as detailed as possible. When I'm driving the car will seem to go back and forth from having full power and being normal, and then seems to some like a clicking noise and drive like its not getting gas or something, it drives with no power. It also does this at a stop light or when idle and it will often cut out and I have to restart. Sometimes it will make like a whistling sound when it cuts out. And even then I've had trouble starting it a couple times, once stuck in the middle of a road for about 5 minutes until it finally started. Even holding down the gas when starting, it seemed like it wasn't getting gas. It will flip back and forth between running normal and running messed up like that, and the check engine light will be on when it does it and the spedometer will go to zero when its messed up, and jerk back to normal when its running well, back and forth.
I also pulled the codes off the diagnostic system, and this is what they flashed. I'll list the definitions from my repair manual with them too:
14 - Coolant sensor or circuit, high temperature indicated
15 - Coolant sensor or circuit, low temperature indicated
16 - System voltage out of range
21 - Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) or circuit - voltage high
22 - Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) or circuit - voltage low
28 - Quad Driver module circuit
34 (two listed under 34 in the book here)
34 - Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor signal voltage low
34 - Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor signal - low airflow indicated
38 - Brake switch circuit
42 - Bypass or Electronic Spark Timing (EST) circuit
Hopefully that helps, I appreciate any advice!
