A idle and stalls when you come to a stop . How do I fix this when I disconnect the battery's?
Ive owned this car for a year and a half. Whn first bought it ran fine for test drive then after buying it wouldnt start. It started the next day was taken to a shop where they couldnt find an issue, it ran fine. Since then I have had intermitent issues with running good except for slight idle roughness when sitting at traffic lights. Then it started having the same issues as earlier where it would run ok and drive somewhere and tun it off and few min later wouldn't start. Wait a bit go back and it would start right up. Then same thing would happen. We have replaced the fuel pump. Since then it has started several times. Then I went to drive it and it failed to start. Replaced the fuel regulator, still won't start. My mechanic is stumped. So am I. Not sure what to look at next.
What causes this problem?
I have replaced the headlight switch. Also replaced the high beam switch.
Car has done this several times while ive been trying to accelerate. It runs fine when cold but once it gets up to temp begins to be sluggish and often stalls out. When it stalls out it wont restart for an extensive time period. Fuel pump, filter, and pressure regulator have all be swapped out for brand new ones. No vacuum leaks or anything, and getting plent of fuel to the engine. My father and husband are both mechanichs and they are stumped. We finally had it towed to a shop the last time it happened and they've been using it as a parts run car and still can get it to die so they can diagnose it. They have driven it for hours and nothing. PLEASE HELP!
i just installed new brakes to car and for some reason they are not working as they should.
it has been hesitant when accelerating.
I read where you have to flush and bleed the system. I have driven it to get the fluid to fill all the lines, but then discovered that they say you have to suspend the front wheels off the ground and work it right to left till all the air is out and you are not filling the fluid any further. Is it necessary to do this method? Is there anything else that could be wrong that I am missing? I am at wits end and need to get my power steering back. Please help!

I just put 2 new head gaskets in my Oldsmobile cutlass supreme and got the car to run, my problem is that now it idles very fast and doesn't want to stop, also when I put the car in drive it wants to move only 6 mph, what problems might I be having that I need to resolve?
