oil pump,oil level sensor 92 quad 4

92 olds achieva...if the oil pump is bad would that cause the oil level sensor to cause the engine to stall after 20 min of driving or so? maybe because it is not getting the proper lube and shuts down to prevent further damage ? 92 olds achieva quad 4

No. The oil pressure sender completes the circuit to the fuel pump when initial oil pressure meets the breakpoint.

The problem is elsewhere.

More than likely an ignition problem. Don't spend a lot of money on a Quad 4 like this, they are wicked junk and riddled with problems, such as head gasket woes.

How did you check the ignition module? Use autolibrary.org below to guide you.

the only thing i can think of now is maybe the fuel pump or pressure regulator as the car will stall after diving for a bit and will start but when i put it in drive it will stall unless it sits for 30 min or so any other idea? and thx for you help (alot of thx)

Joe's correct on that veh being a PITA. Check fuel pressure or have it checked. You may have a bad fuel pump.

Whoa Nelley.

That's a different problem. If the vehicle will stall immediately when you put it in gear when it's hot, chances are the torque converter clutch solenoid is hanging up.

Also, if when slowing down to a stop if the vehicle stalls or "chuggles" (like when you drive a stick and slow down, forgetting to push in the clutch), that indicated a TCC problem.

There's a square four pin connector at the top of the tranny. Pull it out and if the problem goes away, leave the connector out. The TCC solenoid is wasted and it isn't worth fixing on this old heap. It won't affect much.
