1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera ProblemsThe Engine May Stall After Extended Freeway Driving
The torque converter clutch can stick "on" after extended freeway driving causing the engine to stall when coming to a stop. Our technicians tell us when this occurs, the engine usually will restart and stall when put into gear. After allowing about twenty minutes for the engine and transmission to cool down, the engine will start and the transmission will operate normally. Replacing the torque converter clutch solenoid, transmission filter, and fluid will generally correct this issue.
The steering rack may fail causing the steering to become hard to turn.
Fuel injectors can short-circuit electrically causing a rougher than normal idle and reduced performance.
