[Return to Topics]

I have a 1991 Buick Century that the idle races and than sometimes it is so low that it stalls this happens even when I am drifting (stalling)

Any suggestions would be a great help.

on the throtle body there is a little item called the idle motor it takes about 20 mins to change, and costs about 10 bucks from the auto salvage. change that and your problems will be over it is on the firewall side of the throtle body. this happens after alot of mileage and many tanks of gas. easy to fix. like i said 20 mins max

I have a 1997 Buick Century would the problem and position of the throtle body be the same?

Have you tried some drygas? This time of year when the temps can vary so widely is all heck for getting water into the fuel.
My Dakota stalled today as I coasted up to a stoplight. Definately needs a can of drygas.

Could be the throttle pos. sensor Mike. But the best thing to do is to read the codes in the ECM. A scan tool does this best but there are cheap cards that will cause it to flash the fault code on the service engine light.

To look up trouble codes on that year you don't need a scan tool, only a paper clip! CHeck out the link for details.

That's what the code card does, jumps the rh two terminals and has the codes printed on the card for you.
