Olds Delta 88 idle problems

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  Olds Delta 88 idle problems

I have a 1987 Olds Delta 88 RB with the 3.8L odd fire V6 and 4 spd auto w/OD, 142000 miles.

At idle the engine runs very rough. With the lights and AC on, the car will sometimes die when slowing down from 55+. It has also died while idling, with both lights and AC on.
The voltmeter will range from 12-14 VDC at idle, but stay close to 14 when driving. The AC works fine.

There are no codes that come up on the diagnostic test.

The spark plugs are two months old, though the plug wires are a couple years old (I think).

Thanks!

I'm assuming you want a question answered, or maybe you're just telling us this because you like to type. Either way the place that all new members should start is the "Introduce Yourself" section of this fine forum.

I don't know that I would call it a predicament, how about a situation?
