Noticed like a metal grinding noise in the front of the car. First noticed when it was idling, stopped when I started driving. Then noticed it every time I started the car as well and would cease seconds after and drive just fine. Noticed it first after a roughly 60 mile drive at Interstate speeds.

is it a computer problem

I want to gain access to the cradle bolt nut without taking it all apart. I have the new nut and bolt, but I don't want the big expense of taking it to a shop. I want to do it myself.

I have a 97 Cutlass Supreme. A month ago it was fine now suddenly about a week ago it wont start. Here is a list of some issues I noticed and hope someone will read this with some helpful information.
Car wont start and it seems like the brake pedal will only go down a inch or two. It seems harder to push in. I also get a strange clicking noise when trying to turn on. Also the brake lights flash. Also when I try to start it up the mph needle jumps to 50 mph. I hope someone can help me diagnose this problem.

Just had the intake gasket replaced

I've replaced pvc line and still the code remains the same.please help me.I also have that issue with when I turn on my lights head or park my dash lights goes out.

Hey guys my when I turn the left signal on on my 94 cutlass the brake lights go out, it only happens with the left side and I already replaced the combination set itch, has anyone encountered this before?

I needed to take off a lot of overstuff to get at it. I replaced everything but now my car idles very fast. How do I adjust it? Their are tow bands that connect to a wheel that turns the car on and when I depress it, it zooms faster. How do I adjust that and turn it down?

changed brake light switch replaced bulbs still no lights every once in a while they work

the fan belt and pully's and water pump are on the passengers side.

Ive owned this car for a year and a half. Whn first bought it ran fine for test drive then after buying it wouldnt start. It started the next day was taken to a shop where they couldnt find an issue, it ran fine. Since then I have had intermitent issues with running good except for slight idle roughness when sitting at traffic lights. Then it started having the same issues as earlier where it would run ok and drive somewhere and tun it off and few min later wouldn't start. Wait a bit go back and it would start right up. Then same thing would happen. We have replaced the fuel pump. Since then it has started several times. Then I went to drive it and it failed to start. Replaced the fuel regulator, still won't start. My mechanic is stumped. So am I. Not sure what to look at next.

What causes this problem?

I put a light tester to the wires leading to them and got nothing. I think it could be the relay but how do I know for sure. Is there a way to test them or see if the fans motors are working?

I noticed that the 2 fans directly behind the radiator are not spinning, when I'm in park and allowing the car to get hot? could that be the problem and how to fix?

replaced a/c compressor, condenser etc and now wont start.
Double checked all wires etc. all hooked up
found I had 3 volts to fuel pump but no pressure at fuel rail so I replaced the fuel pump
Still wont start
Do I need to reset computer?

Dave Bush at Precision Auto Repair in Garwood NJ damaged my 1970 Cutlass Convertible- He over filled transmission, left bolts out and let water damage occur - he neglected my car and worked on his friend Joe at Westfield Collision's car. He told me my car did not deserve the attention I paid for and overcharged me $1000 for work NOT done. Shoddy work and I my money back to repair his damage
