Cutlass Ciera 3.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 190,000 miles

My car is constantly stalling whenever I slow down to stop at a red light or stop sign or turn into a parking space. It starts fine once I put it in park, and it doesn't happen if I'm constantly giving it gas, but this is hard on the brakes, the engine, and my gas mileage. not to mention the inherent safety risks. Whether by coincidence or not, this seems to happen less frequently when I have a full tank or gas. Also, whenever this is about to happen or it comes close to stalling (in most cases, when I'm putting on the brakes, at a slow speed giving it little or no gas, or simply idling) the lights dim and the power windows have little power to them at all. I have made sure the fuel pump is fine and replaced the fuel filter, and the alternator and battery are quite new as well. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Stalls all the time at intersections, while driving. We replaced the fuel filter, did not help the problem. Will stall and then it will start after awhile. Problem is getting worse. 3 mechanics cannot figure out the problem because they cannot replicate it when we take it in to get looked at.

When accelerating the cars stutters and sometimes won't go at all , i've tried everything to fix it but i still have the same problem also tthe car shakes erratically when going over 55 mph which i heard is common on other cutlass's overall this car is a peice of sh*t and i don't recomend that anyone should purchase (mine was inherited) but its the biggest sh*t pile i've ever seen.
