1988 Olds Cutlass, It always starts, but the rpms started dancing at 20,000 rpms and the car jerked. Then it danced at 15,000. The check engine light does not come on, but now when I start it, the rpms dance period. The last time I tried to drive it, it died when I put it in gear and tried to go. Last year I had the fuel pump replaced along with 3 sensors. One was the MAF, one was Y shaped and the other was a big box just inside where the glove compartment goes. I guess you have guessed by now I'm female with no car experience, but I'm trying to learn the hard way. My Dad's an old school mechanic and he's stumped. Any ideas why the rpms would dance like that when I'm not even touching the gas pedel at start up? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
