1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Reviews

I have a 1990 Oldsmobile cutlass ciera, since i got it about a month ago. I have changed an alternator, heater core, Fuel pump, transmission filter, Transmission fluid, oil filter, oil, Anti freeze, and it still isnt running right. It seems as if what i have is transmission related, i will drive it and its performance is sparatic. It may drive perfect for an hour and then after that hour, when stopped at a sign or light, when i go again it chuggs and dies. Causing me to have to restart it. I am thinking it is a pressure control regulatore. It may also be some type of sensor. Oxygen or throttle position sensor. The reason for all of the problems is that it has been sitting for 4 and a half years. So if you have one, DO NOT LET IT SIT!!
THINGS WILL GET WORSE!!

have a 90 cutlas ciera i have put 800 cash that were worth spending on this reliable car.it has taken me to many far places like,victorville,indio,boumont,sanjacinto,and every where in riverside ca..problems basic alt,fuelp.starter,brakes,rotors,drums,and most recent car prob. it would turn off when turning or accelerating and slowing quickly.that all stopped when i changed the presure control regulator.to know if it is faulty pull small hose off if gasoline is present get a new regulator.regulator is found on the fuel line above the injectors.

this car looks and drives good when it does. i now have 56k on it and it sat for a few yrs. now that i am driving gmas car, i am having issues with it. it looks great, drives great, but after changing fuel pump, gas tank, and knock sensor, its still not running right. about to bring it to the scrap yard cause i am dissapointed. thanks gm.
