Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Can drive 20 or 30 miles then dies wate a few and starts back up
"I have a 93 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera. Recently had a new water pump and belt put on the it. Now when I get above 55-60 mph the car begins to hesitate and begins to lose power but will keep going as long as I slow down. What could be causing this?"
out ciera runs great, but will somtimes shut off. It restarts most of the time easily and may run for several more miles with no problem. crankshaft sensor has been replaced along with other fuel components. could this be an ignition coil tower problem? How do I fix it?
have lights and all turn signals work
I went to check my coolant level and when I removed the radiator cap I found the coolant to be yellow and oily feeling. The coolant was a nice green color a few days ago. I have been checking it often because I noticed a small dripping coolant leak coming from the top of the water pump area. It looks like maybe seeping out from the gasket, but can't tell. The coolant is also a lot thicker in consistency, something like a melted milkshake. The entire radiator is not full of oil, just a couple inches on top. I checked the motor oil and the level is about the same place on the dipstick, so I'm not missing a bunch of oil from the crankcase. There is no indication of water in the crankcase, as the oil on the dipstick is its normal brown color with no discoloration or water droplets. Is it possible that a failing water pump could somehow let oil into the coolant system?
I changed the timing chain, now it sets this code.
Has slight miss, stumble on tip in every now and again.
Idles very smooth , just has the tip in miss.
I get no left and right signals. All the other lights work.
Repaired inside handle to open door. Door opened and shut fine from inside after repair. Dome light stays on. I locked the door with the key, and now door won't open or shut. Dome light staying on, thus draining the battery. Door lock works, all other doors will lock and unlock, but not the drivers side door. Took door panel off from inside, physically pulling the lock bar back. Still won't open.
The parking brake is applied and the release handle is broken, the cable broke and the handle came out. Apparently there is an electrical interlock that prevents the car from being started when the parking brake is applied.
Change battery not sure what else to do where it's the fuel filter and pump located
I am a master technician. Know all the problems associated with my car. When it runs rough check for spark at coils by removing wires. When I remove the #4 wire the car shuts off and then hard to restart. After 30 seconds it starts fine. Fuel pressure normal, spark normal and all sensors are fairly new. New fuel injectors (A/C Delco). No check engine light when running rough and no codes (current or history). When your driving somewhere and shut the car off, go do what you need to do and come back. Time is not a factor. The car will either start up and run normal or will run rough. Sometimes you will be driving and all of sudden you can feel the car get its power back and then run fine for days, other times it will run rough for consecutive starts and then start up and run fine. Any ideas would much appreciated.
I replaced my send and return trans cooling lines and did not mark them. trans has top and bottom ports/holes and radiator has top and bottom lines, don't want to cross them up. Looks like top goes to top but not sure.
I have a 1989 oldsmobile cutlass ciera. Im having problems with it stalling out while accelerating and also not wanting to start up / start back up. Starting fluid helps when this happens but the problem keeps happening. Anyone know what maybe the cause?
A month ago, my car shut off while I was driving (35mph). No warning or anything, it just died, but the lights and radio worked fine. I assume the problem was because I ran out of oil. After filling it and a jump it starts up. I just changed the spark plugs and wires as well, but it has this awful shake when it is in idle. When I drive it, it will shake some too. What could be wrong with it?
