95 Cutlas Cruiser rough idle/surging - electrold - 02-28-2011 04:48 PM

3.1L engine; idles slow and rough - wants to die; engines surges when accelerating while stationary in park; seems a bit sluggish on the road.

My first suspect would be that the Idle Air Control needs cleaned or replaced. The problem is that the list of things that it "Could" be is pretty long. If it were me, I would have the computer scanned, record ALL of the code NUMBERS and post them all here, and have the computer cleared. Any codes that return will likely be associated with your problem. Any codes retrieved could point us to the problem.

Please let us know what you find,
Thanks, Garner
