|1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette Premiere 3.4L Hesitation, Cuts out, Misfire, MIL Lamp on VIN: 1GHDX03E2X
Looks like I stumbled upon a couple of problems. Battery voltage started dropping as the van got hot. Thinking I had a faulty alternator, I found a burned and shorted battery cable near one of the pulleys. A crank sensor was a less expensive guess than a PC... Trouble codes: P0336.
