I have a 2000 olds intrigue. It stahls out while driving or sitting at a stoplight. sometimes it starts right up other times it cranks but doesn't turn over and I end up killing the battery. I'll get a jump and the car runs fine for a little bit and then back to the top.

    What exactly is a torque converter clutch and where is it located.

  • cwaters197 Aug 20, 2009

    Maybe this can help determine, I left the oil cap off and didn't know it so oil was spilling out and I detected this by the alternator going out. Could my spark plugs just be dirty and need replaced?

This could be several problems. Distributors, plugs, wires, fuel filter, fuel injedtors. Timing depending on milage or idle air control valve. Suggest you invest in a repair manual cost about $20-25. A goo investment if you intent to keep the car.

no. It would be the other way around. If something went wrong in the rear end and it locked up, you could break the drive shaft universal joints trying to force it to go. if your rear end locked up, I'd be willing to bet there was no oil in it.
