Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

I have a 1999 olds alero the vehicle starts and idles rough once i give it gas it runs a little bit better for about 1 min then it starts to die, i have tested with brake cleaner/starter fluid in the intake once it starts to die and it runs perfect until the starter fluid runs its course. could this be faulty fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator? Also i have changed the fuel filter and done a fuel system cleaning service on it. about 7,000 miles ago.

Why is my car running bad and i get know error codes


The basics for a rough idle, check for a leak of some kind, fuel--egr--vacuum.
Problem at higher rpms, the basics, check for a blockage of some kind, the two things I think of first is fuel and exhaust.
I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, see if fuel pressure holds for a bit with everything off.
Could be other issues.

Car starts and runs ok......after it warmed up and you restart, runs rough, but will clear up by giving gas making it idle faster


What is the vehicle - especially the age. There are many things that can cause this and age has a bit to do with it.

Let me know - it will make it easier to answer.

What's the sign of a bad cat converter on a 1999


If the cat is clogged, blocking exhaust flow, the car may start normally, and may run fine while the engine is cold. Within a few mins as engine warms it will start to bog down and die when you try to acellerate, even a little. May even die out if you give it gas, while it may idle just fine.
This has been my experice in 2 different cars of different types over the years.

Had a question bout my mazda rx8 I was driving it one night it was running fine the next day went out and it won't turn over it takes awhile bit it finally starts and idles real rough and you give it...


Too many possibilities

Won't turn over is one problem -battery,cables,grounds,
starter,solenoid,etc

Idles rough-- vacuum leaks,spark plugs never replaced,
egr valve etc

Worn O2 Sensors
Dirty MAF Sensor
Old Fuel Filter

You have to go into a lot of technical detail & history
on your vehicle, for us to even guess.

check air flow duct where the throttle valve is . check the pvc valve . make sure it isnt stuck open. check the egr valve . it will stick open stall out motor .use a scanner it will tell you if you got egr valve problems. check fuel pressure. it could be stop up fuel filter bad fuel pump fuel pump relay.your car problem sound like a major vacuum leak . change spark plug and wires if they have not been change in a while. it could idle air control. hook a scanner .it could give you a code.
