1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 150, 00 miles
I just bought this car and it starts and runs fine for a few minutes, then when I come up to a stop light or sign it starts bogging down and eventually stahls out. It starts up fine but when I put it in gear it jumps and stahls. After waiting a few minutes I can get it in gear and I drove it back home, but this happened twice. I read somewhere it could be the TCC solenoid in the transmission. I heard you can test this by moving the electrical plug in the front of the trans. How far is it safe to drive without that plugged in, I havn't taken it on a test drive yet but would like to know, thanks.
