89 Oldsmobile cutlass ciera 3800

Question From Guest on 89 Oldsmobile cutlass ciera 3800

Car bogs bad on acceleration have changed fuel pump,fuel filter, plugs &wires,air filter. what do I do next

Response From Sidom Top Rated Answer

If the check engine light is on, pull the codes. Take a vacuum reading at idle & high rpms. If you have very low vac @ high rpms you may have a restricted exhaust.... Take a fuel pressure reading, get a spark tester & check coil pack output...

Response From Guest

Turned out to be bad fuel pump thanks

Response From Sidom

Don't ya hate it when that happens ........ Thx 4 takin the time to let us know what happened.......

Clunky in idle, what gives?

Showing 2 out of 6 Posts | Show 4 Hidden Posts
Question From Karenwalkerspoodle on Clunky in idle, what gives?

I have a 04 Buick Alero. It will probably hit 100k this week. Last week I had the oil changed and got a new fuel filter. It's driving fine, except when I'm idleing ate red light and what not. It sounds really 'clunky' like it's missing a few beats. It hasn't stalled (yet) but that's what it feel like.

Should i check the air filter and add some cleaner to the gas? Any suggestions as to what it might be?

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

You mean Oldsmobile?

Which engine?

Check engine light on or flashing?

Response From Karenwalkerspoodle

How cna i determine which engine? Like cylinders? The check engine light has been on for two years, it's broken.

Response From Hammer Time

{quote]The check engine light has been on for two years, it's broken.

The light's not broken. The mechanic that told you that is.

You can get the engine size from the 8th digit of the VIN#

You need to have the codes read and post the code numbers here.

Response From Karenwalkerspoodle

Okay thanks so much! I'll go have that done and come beck and report.

I do know last time the codes were pulled it showed this car has a history of check engine light failures. I didn't gte it brand new so that's all I know.

Response From Hammer Time

It can be fixed. They just didn't know how.

1993 Olds Bravada stalls

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From Phishr on 1993 Olds Bravada stalls

I have a 1993 Oldsmobile Bravada with 197,000 miles. It has the 4.3 liter V-Tech engine. The car will start just fine when it is cold, but after about 10 minutes of driving it will stall. Attempts to start it again will result in the engine turning over for a second or two and then it stalls again. After about 10-15 attempts at starting...it will start and run just fine with no further problems. This only occurs once the engine has been allowed to cool completely. The fuel pump, fuel filter and central port injector have all been replaced within the last 5,000 miles. The air filter is clean. Any ideas?

Response From zmame Top Rated Answer

Next time it happens should see if you have spark. I know on my astro van 4.3L the coil was bad same symtoms... seems to be common problem

1993 ford ranger question please help !!!

Showing 2 out of 13 Posts | Show 11 Hidden Posts
Question From fokes123 on 1993 ford ranger question please help !!!

I have a 1993 ford ranger 2.3 and i am wondering if i can fit the k&n 57 Series FIPK cold air intake. The oldest year they have is 1995 ranger 2.3 and i am wondering if it would fit my 93 ranger. Also just to make sure with this k&n cold air intake, it would pass smog and be street legal? Thanks!

Response From Hammer Time

Yep, that cold air intake is just a waste of money.

Response From Discretesignals

Save yourself some money and make your own custom cold air intake.


Response From Hammer Time

I don't know how they call these things COLD air intakes when they pull in the superheated air from under the hood. Just a way to take your money.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

OK - went a bit nuts but it's a serious misleading as bad as any Sham-Wow infomercial.
People: Gas/fuel doesn't like COLD air dag nabbit! If too cold it would never atomize (evaporate) to be able to work in time. All sorts of efforts are to warm air not cool it up to putting strong electric heaters under throttle body or carbs then AND run total exhaust heat as well so evaporating fuel (gets cold just doing that like sweat on your skin) can even ice up so it's making itself cold anyway and has to be corrected or you'd just flood out.


No clue how these scams get out there and not pulled from the market place instantly?


True: Cold air has more density (heavier) than warm air - Google out what a hot air balloon is lifted by


The end all is if any of these tricks worked at all or had any benefit it would be designed into the engines to begin with.


This and a ton of bullcrap sells so they keep making it. If it floats your boat go for it but don't complain when it's all worse than before you messed with it,

Good information Tom. Like they say, K&N filters are really only good for filtering out rocks...lol. GM came out with a TSB a while back concerning those filters and how they were causing MAF issues. GM stated they wouldn't honor damage done by using those filters. K and N went bananas over that one.

Automatic Transmission Shift, Engine Driveability Concerns or Service Engine Soon (SES)
Light On as a Result of the Installation of an Aftermarket Reusable, Excessively Oiled Air Filter

Models: 2004 and All Prior Cars and Light Duty Trucks

DO THIS
First, Inspect the vehicle for a reusable aftermarket excessively oiled air filter

DON'T DO THIS
DO NOT repair under warranty if concerns result from the use of a reusable aftermarket oiled air filter.

The installation of an aftermarket reusable, oiled air filter may result in:

1. Service Engine Soon (SES) Light On

2. Transmission shift concerns, slipping and damaged clutch(es) or band(s)

3. Engine driveability concerns, poor acceleration from a stop, limited engine RPM range

The oil that is used on these air filter elements may be transferred onto the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor causing contamination of the sensor. As a result, the Grams per Second (GPS) signal from the MAF may be low and any or all of the concerns listed above may occur.

When servicing a vehicle with any of these concerns, be sure to check for the presence of an aftermarket reusable, excessively oiled air filter. The MAF, GPS reading should be compared to a like vehicle with a OEM air box and filter under the same driving conditions to verify the concern.

Transmission or engine driveability concerns that are the result of the installation of an aftermarket reusable, excessively oiled air filter are not considered to be warrantable repair items.



Have you attempted to contact the manufacture to see if that would fit on your truck? As for passing emissions as long as it doesn't disturb how the air flows through the MAF sensor, you should be alright. To confirm, you should check the laws in your state concerning that.

This really is an automotive repair website dealing with factory manufacture designed vehicles and systems and how to troubleshoot and repair those systems. When you start getting into the realm of modifications and changes to the manufacture's intended design, you may not get good answers.

One good suggestion is to keep the old air intake ducting system just in case you run into issues or you want to sell the vehicle later.

This guy is just sucked in by all the hype nonsense and bogus claims.

He's spouted off long enough. Time to close this.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Sorry for the harsh approach to what really should be a no brainer and no offence - the advertising is convincing with stuff but real results are so disappointing and costly to buy then don't work and costly to put back to what works!


K&N actually has a competitor for this market that's worse! Look up the Uban lore and myths of assorted products. Some you'll find great reviews but miss fine print that it isn't really tested and don't discuss it can also damage things for using them! Guess the budget for something is better spent not telling you that up front.


Makes this and other magic-in-a-can products a strong seller for the unwary. It's my/our fault to some degree that it's so clearly corrupted to sell this junk it gets taken out on the buyer who trusts the claims.
Graphs probably wont show below and I wont go looking for ones that will but if you really look into results of products of many assorted things never mind a vehicle that took mega thousands of hours to make and design as best as possible or loses a sale of a vehicle when new to another. It's suicide for a company to have an unhappy new vehicle buyer then the icing on the cake is nobody really want them used so really a disaster.


On just this air intake search I just did came up with OE air filter results done by real PPM of catching dirt and the CFM impact of air flowing thru filters and what loss would be expected at they were part dirty vs another. BTW in my hunt AC Delco came out on top of most testing! OE replacement stuff no alterations just quality of the product.


Changing to cold air just is beyond thinking it thru IMO and experience. Used to back when turn a round lid to an air filter upside down and get a neat carb/air intake roar with a load that did nothing but make noise and trash the filter fast but cost nothing and just put it back on properly was all you had to do so didn't do much harm short of getting a dirty air filter sooner and defeat WARM AIR pick up for cold starts and engine's initial time before whole engine warmed up and ran it's best. Do that stupid trick in the dead of Winter you would have real problems.


End all is the change you seek for whatever claimed benefit doesn't work and costs to do it then undo it when you find out. We really (or I was) were trying to warn you of a known failed idea not pick on you at all and did come out bit harsh. Sorry for that.


Try it if you want to find out for yourself. Measure before and after real changes yourself and then if you complain to this company bet you wont even get your money back!


Good luck. We really are all volunteering time and years of experience for that good no other motivation at this site,


Tom
Graph if it shows or search it out...........

Accumulative Gain:
“Accumulative Gain” is the total amount of dirt that passed through the filter during the test.

They even advertise!

With honesty!

IMO all that is junk you'll be removing later - don't even if it still runs well enough for an inspection it's of no use at all just costly,

Question From 2n8n9nman on olds intrigue frustration

i'm working on a 1999 oldsmobile intrigue with a 3.5 v6 it has 55675 origanal miles on it. i have replaced the following; spark plugs, air filter, pvc valve, fuel filter, and a bottle of injector cleaner. it is not and never has thrown a code. the owner said the car was running fine all day, then while pulling a long hill it started missing (chugging) and loosing power. once they topped the hill it ran decent the rest of the way home. so i was told it hasn't had a tune up since they owned the car. i drove the car and it seemed ok. i tuned it up and it seemed to run great. i have been driving it for a couple days and then tonight pulling a small hill it started missing and loosing power. when i'd let up a little it would run a little better but slow down. once i got it home, and parked, it misses when accelerated hard. to a point of almost stalling. i hope i gave enough information. thanks

Response From Discretesignals

Got an enhanced scan tool or Tech 2? Need to look at the misfire counters and see which cylinder(s) is acting up. Might give you some direction. Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to watch O2 voltage at wide open throttle and see if it is leaning out.
