Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Other Oldsmobile Models 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 204000 miles
Stopped car at a red light on hot day after driving on highway. After a few seconds, engine suddenly stalled as if it was choking. It started right up and I drove home. &Quot; Service Engine Soon" light came on and there were a few short periods of engine roughness at highway speed. Stalled a few more times at traffic lights, after about 10 seconds of idling, but started right up each time.
At home, checked the OBD code: it was 34. Checked all hoses and electrical connections. Tried running with air filter removed: still stalls. Tried again when engine was cold: problem appears to be gone but I'm afraid it will come back when engine is hot.
