maybe the clutch
The RPMs and the engine of the 2001 Oldsmobile Alero might surge if there is a problem with the oxygen or fuel sensor. It may also surge if there is a problem with the fuel injectors or the fuel filter.
Any number of things could cause your vehicle to surge. You need to take your vehicle to a tune-up shop and have it diagnosed.
Your air compressor drive belt is loose, Tighten it up! geterdone
Most likely a blown fuse
If a surge protector had a very low resistance at all voltages, all of the power and voltage would go to the surge protector instead of the computer. Basically, the only thing that would get power would be the surge protector.
Each line would need a surge protector so you would need 3 single-phase surge protectors.
The first things to check are the air intake, the fuel pump/filter and the governor.
The laptop would not have been fried if it had been plugged into a surge protector.
I would not go surfing today. There is a storm surge coming. I noticed a surge in the electricity before the light burned out. After drinking coffee, I had a surge of energy.
If a surge protector had a very high resistance at all voltages, the wires in the surge protector would short out. It would kick off the protector and make it useless. A new surge protector would need to be purchased.
IAC (Idel Air Control Valve)
The surge protector would let the surge go through to destroy the computer. <<>> With very hgh resistance, vey little current would flow.
Rocker cover gaskets need to be replaced.
If it is a newer vehicle you are probably hitting the rev limiter. The computer will cause the engine to cut out when it reaches a certain RPM too quickly.
A power surge caused by lightning may have killed it. If you have homeowners or renters insurance, they may help replace it.
Bad EGR valve
Yes it would because it also controls the speedometer and odometer, change it and that should fix your problem.
Possibe blown fuse
A bad resistor or a bad switch.
the serpentine belt may be slipping then grabbing as the tranny shifts gears.
Power surge. Replace the fuse and it should be OK.
A power surge under a load is probably the transmission slipping. If its a manual transmission the pressure plate is slipping on the disc. If it is an automatic most likely it is a worn clutch pack slipping. If it surges at idle with the tranny in park the surge is usually a defective IAC (Idle Air Control) valve.
