Question From shaffer017 on help me please


my car runs fine when its cold. when it gets up to operating temp it starts to flutter then die then it wont start for about 1 hour then will run fine till it gets hot again. i replaced the egr valve the coil packs and the icm,and fuel filter and i still have the same problem. i took in to a shop and hooked it up to a computer and flashed no codes and tested the fuel pressure from the fuel rail and tested good, but told me the EGR valve was electronicly unplugged. they plugged it in and seemed to run fine. so i left and two blockes down the road it flutters and dies while im driving. it doesnt matter if im driving or im parked it does the same thing

1989 oldsmobile cutlass 3.1L v6

Response From Jeff Norfolk

Year make and model?

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

Another thing to check; Check for spark when it dies. Crank sensors and control modules were common failures on these engines. Either can be heat related, and neither will always set a trouble code.

Response From shaffer017

i checked the spark when it died and there is no spark at all

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

If you can get your hands on a scanner, look for cranking rpm. And, a noid light to check for injector pulse. I'd suspect the crank sensor, first, but still could be a control module. Hopefully, I'm wrong on the module. They are quite expensive.

Response From Double J

If they tested the fuel pressure and it tests ok

Test the Injectors.
They may being shutting down the Quad drivers in the ECM (computer)

If this is the case,i would replace all 6 injectors and the ECM.

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

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...

Question From Guest on 95 Oldsmobile cutlass ciera sl drivers side window will go down but not up

95 Oldsmobile cutlass ciera sl drivers side window will go down but not up if you walk away for a minute or two and come back you can get the window to go up about an inch and then it stops but if you repeat the process you can get the window to go up all the way with repeat cycles.

Response From dave284

http://www.autozone.com/.../repairInfoPages.htm The problem could be in the switch itself or the motor...but it does sound like the switch since there is no problem with it going down....heres a link with some info on testing it...LOL.

Response From Guest

I have replaced the switch and the problem persist

Response From DanD

The window motors in these years of GM are well known for this exact problem. Gravity helps the motor go down; on the way up, it’s all motor that has to do the work. When the motor begins to fail, it draws more current (amperage) then what the internal breaker switch can handle and it trips open. After a few minutes the motor & breaker cools and the motor again lifts the window; until the breaker trips again.
The motors are riveted together and I’ve never tried to repair one but they are relatively inexpensive to buy and not worth the effort to repair; just replace it.

Question From Guest on 1986 oldsmobile cutlass supreme no compression

its an 86 oldsmobile cutlass supreme and the compression is zero how would i be able to locate it

Response From DanD
Top Rated Answer

how would I be able to locate it

Locate what; the compression?

Engine size would also be good to know?

If this is a 3.3Lt V6 the timing chain has likely let go; if it has, there’s a good chance the valves are now bent.

Dan.

Response From Guest

its a 5.0 v8 86 oldsmobile cutlass supreme and there is no compression in any cylinder. the firing order is correct, nothing seems to be out of place. the valves are moving and the pistons are moving and it doesn't appear to jump time. when trying to turn over it just whizzes over and won't fire. example would be if you took the spark plugs out of a regular working motor and tried to turn it over. and all the spark plugs work. i am puzzled and don know what could be wrong

89 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

Question From GenTrapstar on 89 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

Our Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera has started giving us problems. One of the main problems is stalling issues. What could be causing these stalling issues. Like the car will randomly turn off when turning at any given time.

Next question is. Recently our interior light, cd player(aftermarket), horn, and now power locks do not work.

We tried replacing fuses and that didn't work.

What is the problem with this and how do we fix both issues.

Thanks

Response From re-tired

We need more info on the stalling. Hot or cold eng ,does it shut off like turning off switch or does it act like running out of gas . What have you tried to fix it i.e. tune up , fuel filter . clean thottle body etc. You can't just change fuses , you need to buy a test light and see if the fuses are even getting power to them. post back with info and we will try to help.

Response From garygoodenough11@gmail.com

my 89 cutlass ciera starts and runs great until it warms up a bit then it just stumbles and dies and wont start again until it gets cooled off. I have tried changeing the fuel filter the esc module and coilpacks and it still does it .

You really should change your user name. This site is a target for spammers and if they get your e-mail, they will share it with all the spammers.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Thread is 3 years old! Should start you own always with a problem as the others all get notices of a reply made.

I'll let it be and HT can lock it to archives,
