Username Post: 3.1 Engine Idle Issue When Engine Warm        (Topic#293503)

Hi: My '92 Olds Cutlass 3.1 engine normally runs great, but after the engine is warmed up, it will die while idling in both drive and neutral. The idle is normally fine, but will then all of sudden get rough, flutter, and either recover (and return to normal) or die. When the car is idling from a cold start there is no problem - the problem appears once the engine warms up. Injectors are good, intake manifold gasket is good, it has a new fuel pump, IAC, and hoses and wires are in good shape. Any ideas?

Very straightforward and simple tests. Great explanations. Helped me out with a misfire in my '91 Cutlass Supreme 3.1
