1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Question: Runs well but stalls after a while
When driving without stop for about 45 minute car stalls. It will start up immediately after the stall but when put into gear it stalls again. This starting and stalling continues on until I just let it sit for about 10 minutes and after the sit, when I start it and put it into gear, it acts normal and doesn't stall when I put it into gear. I can then drive it normally for about another 45 minutes and then the stall happens again and I have to let it sit for another 10 minutes before I can drive normally again until after another 45 minutes goes by etc... Does anyone know what the cause of this is or have they ever had the same problem? Have put in new plugs wires and coils. Engine light is not on and it runs like a new car before the stalling starts. No problems starting the car when it stalls. - Arthurjackso
