2001 Saab 9-3 was driving and while driving the speedometer went down to zero, my check engine light, TCS light, ABS light, hazard light all came on. Also at the same time when I stopped at a red light the car idles a lot harder than normal, then when i accelerate it runs fine. When I shift the car from drive to park, the hard idling stops.

1997 oldsmobile LSS with 3800. Starts and runs great in the morning, drive 20 miles to work. Trouble starting after work, but will start. Leave work, run errands, stopping here and there after the 20 mile drive. Won't start. Tracked it down to air in the fuel line, by using the bleeder valve before the injectors. Lots of air, some fuel. hit it a few times, then the key a few to get the fuel pump going, and repeat until good gas flow. Starts right up then. Also will start and then stall if sprayi

Sunfire Stalling I was driving my sunfire home the other day and stopped off at the store. When I was done and pulled out of my parking space --it stalled. It started right back up but as soon as I took my foot off the brake--it would stall again. It took me 30 minutes to get out of the lot. And continued stalling all the way home. Evrytime I came to a light /stop sign I threw it in nutral so I wouldn't come to a complete stop. Any ideas what could be wrong?


Sounds like a mass air flow problem. It's located somewhere between the air filter and intake, but usually right after the air filter box.Check to see that the big rubber hose there isn't cracked or ripped, check to see if the mass air flow wir ... 2003 Pontiac Sunfire

No check engine light on until it stalls out. While driving around town and approaching stop sign/light, sometimes car will stall out. I also notice that my fuel gauge dips down about 1/4 tank and then comes back up slowly within 5-10 seconds. Sometimes when it does this as approaching full stop the fuel gauge will dip and car stalls. I had the o2 sensor, spark plugs and wires and fuel filter replaced. Still does it but not as bad. I have put fuel cleaner in when near empty and put 1/2 tank g


You didn't say how much fuel is in the tank when this happens. Some of these old GM cars will starve for fuel if the tank is near empty and you are braking or stopping with the car facing downhill. It could be rust or scale in the fuel tank clogging ... 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1996 Buick Century- When accelerating from stop, engine revs but car won't move in Drive. Once up to 30mph in another gear (2nd, etc) will move in Drive. Problem started with stall-like shaking during accelerating from stop. Also, loud revving noise from 45mph to levelling off at 60mph. Seems like car wants to continue running even when I stop accelerating. I am able to coast at full speed for approx. 1/10 mi. Breaks checked-fine. Is it transmission or fuel line issue?

My 2004 impala ss keeps stalling out. Not all the time. Usualy after I run the car for a while, turn it off and start driving it will happen. Also mostly when I am driving and have to stop at a light is when it will want to stall. One more thing, sometimes the rpms are jumping all over the place when I am idling, before stalling. I changed the fuel filter, and ran a few rounds of injector cleaner through it. Anybody know what's up?

I have a 2003 Trailblazer EXT. when I crank the car it starts then stalls immediately...why is this? The only way to get it started is to crank it and immediately push the gas pedal down. When I drive and I come to a complete stop it stalls or if going around a curve at a slow speed and low rpms it stalls the car. Also when the car was running right at idle when I turned to the a/c or the defrost sitting still it kills the car but works fine while driving. PLEASE HELP!

Its an R plate S40 TD with 156000 on the clock. When the engine is idleing their is blue smoke comeing from the exhaust and also if the revs drop below 2000rpm when driving their is a lack of power and blue smoke. The only way to stop the blue smoke is to get the turbo to kick in! Friends have told me that it is a fueling issue and i have already changed the fuel filter but with no joy. It also struggles to start up when cold and is prone to stalling when stopping until the engine has warmed up.

I also had a new water pump, drive belt and timing belt/chain (also replaced the tension adjuster for this to as the mechanic thought it is good to replace while he is in) put in.
