99 Oldsmobile intrigue sputters and dies like its out of gas

Unread post by mdmiller » Tue Jul 22, 2014 4:18 pm

I have a 99 Oldsmobile Intrigue with a 3800 Series 2 engine, recently it died while attempting to get on the interstate. It had been driving semi okay before getting on the on ramp. Since the top end gasket repair on the engine the rpm needle would jump without the rpms actually revving while driving and the rpms do fluctuate a little while stopped (no more than 500rpms). Now my car starts and will rev up just fine in park, however when you put it in drive and attempt to move it acts like it is out of gas. (Sputters and dies while electronics stay on.) Somebody help??

You said it had top end gaskets replaced on your 3800? Exactly what gaskets were they? Did it have any of these problems before the gaskets were replaced?

The head gaskets went bad. We replaced all of the top end gaskets when we replaced those. No it did not have these issues before.
