I have a 95 Ciera 3.1L Auto Transmission 150,000 Miles. While going down the highway as I was accelerating the transmission went out of gear while still in Drive (felt like I was in neutral and coasting). I found that the only gears that work are 1st & 2nd No Drive or Reverse. This happened suddenly without any hint of a problem prior to this. when I got home I checked the fluid (which I changed last summer) It was still clean and did not have any unusual odor, also the fluid level was fine. Can you please give me some suggestions. Thank You Very Much Gary

How can it be determined if bad? My controls are manual
and fan just quit completely when I changed temp from cold to hot.
Could it be a relay or resistor rather than blower motor?

I live in Cannon Falls, Mn. But i took my car back to the man that has work on it since I bought it. It needed a tune-up and my gas was being use up to fast, I was told by a neighbors grandson whom is a mechantic that I was getting to much fuel coming through the fuel regulator. I don't know how long the troblem with the fuel regulator. But in the last month I've been having problems with it starting. I bought a new battery and that did help for a while then it started popping when I tried to start it so I had it towed to the garage.

My blower fan motor stopped working when I changed temperature level from cold to hot. I checke dteh fuse and it is not blown. What is the most probable cause and easiest way to troubleshoot the problem. Relay, resistor, blower motor?

I have recently had the oil changed in my car topped off all the fluids and filled up the tank. The service engine soon light comes on and goes off with no pattern that I can detect. There are shorts in the dash, the fasten seat belt light comes on and off too and the radio works only sometimes. The car runs fine and there is nothing that I can find wrong with it. I am on a very fixed income and can't pay to have someone plug it into a machine. Unless I absolutely have to. The auto parts stores no longer carry the OBDI (to help customers). I am thinking that maybe I will just disconnect the battery and let the computer reset itself. Am I completely crazy to do this ??

My car runs great when first started. When it idles down however,it idles slow and rough and then suddenly dies.Then it refuses to start until it sits for a period of time. It is a nice car to look at, but that all I can do for now until I pin point the problem.From my experience,it seems to be a sensor. It cuts off suddenly.Please help.

Why does my Check Engine Soon light keep coming on even after a trusted repair service resets the car's CPU? The car runs fine. I was told they could remove the dashboard and go into the electrical system that way for repairs, but it would cost hundreds of dollars. I rejected that idea. For now, I am driving with the engine light on all the time and having regular maintenance performed.

The windshield wipers don't work and the washer fluid does not spray. Does anyone know what it could be? I replaced the fuse and check the current at the motor plug but it still is not working.

I actually own a low mileage 1987 Olds Ciera and purchased it new on Dec. 15, 1986. December 2008 I was driving from Seattle to Portland, OR when the water pump went out. Repair shop at time told me that since I had orginal water pump and radiator, I should replace both as I still needed to drive another 11 hours to go to California. 8 months later water pump failed again Because I wasn't driving this car decided to wait until the following March to get it replaced. This shop gave me part and said it was defective new water pump that had be installed. NOW the second water pump has failed. I have not taken it anywhere yet. The car is clean, not abused, and has about 127,000 miles. Can two new water pumps fail when I haven't driven more than 4000 miles since the lst replacement was installed?

I put the car in gear, and while it's idling there's a noise that seem's to be coming fron the transmission. The noise goes away when I apply the throttle.

My cutlass wont start, NOTHING happens. NO POWER. We checked fuses and seemed like one was loose. The car started and ran for a while . Then totally shut down again. Replaced fuse and wiggled the rest and checked them . Can figure if its a shortage and if so how do I check that ?

The car has a new harmonic balancer and a new starter, but for some reason the engone wont turn over. the battery is fully charged and the light inside come on, but when i turn the key, the starter wont even clickor make any noise

Just wanted some outsider opinions on my situation. I have a 95 Olds Ciera with the 3100 eng. 206,000 miles. Needs head gasket job. Probably looking at around 1500 to 2 grand. Zero resale value on the car, so it's keep or junk it time. What do you think? B/c of this problem I currently have no heat and I live in the upper Midwest, so that sucks.
