Q: Engine stalls at start up on 1999 Oldsmobile Alero

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I have had an intermittent problem when starting my car especially when the engine is warm. It has a slow crank and stalls at times. I have had the fuel pump, spark plugs, cap and rotor replaced. I picked the car up from the shop and stopped at the market. When I started the car it stalled again I restarted the engine and it was fine. What could the problem be now.

You may wish to zero in on the slow cranking issue and see if the stalling issue is correct once that is taken care of. For slow cranking you will need a complete inspection of the battery, cables, and starter. One of those items should be the cause of your slow cranking issue.
Engine is now running fine. $10044.26 later I now notice that when I have my AC on there is alot of water/ condensation under my car when I turn it off it has been very humid out here lately. It is not coolant, it is water. Should I be conerned?
i have that same problem, but mine was caused by the previous owner keeping her foot on the accelerator when she would start it. All I do is keep the key on run for five seconds before starting it.
