Question From rainclouds on 2001 oldsmobile alero cutting out all the time help

Have changed fuel filter and car still dies out when slowing down and at stops and lights it is happening more frequently now. HELP PLEASE give me some suggestions for this problem. Thanks. 2001 Oldsmobile Alero.

Response From Hammer Time

You may have a bad IAC ( idle air control) but try eliminating any vacuum leaks and cleaning the throttle body first. Remove the intake snorkel, have someone hold the throttle wide open for you and scrub the back side of the throttle plate and surrounding bore with an old tooth brush and some carb cleaner. Be sure to spray some into the small holes next to the throttle plate. That should help stabilize the idle. If it still has a problem, replace the IAC.

Lift Kit for rear suspension 2002 Olds Alero

Question From streetcar76 on Lift Kit for rear suspension 2002 Olds Alero

I have a 2002 Oldsmobile Alero. I have a power wheelchair lift on the back and I cannot find any kind of
a lift kit, to keep the chair lift from dragging on the pavement high spots.
Can anyone help me find something that will work? It doesn't have shocks so Air Shocks are out, it has Mcpherson
type struts on all four wheels so standard air bags won't work. Help this old guy please? Jack

Response From Discretesignals

That is a tough one there because it seems no one makes suspension components that are designed to lift the rear of your vehicle to compensate for tongue weight. Most vehicles here where I live that have scooter lifts are either vans, suvs, or full size cars.

I was looking around on the net and there is a company that makes a dolly looking apparatus that enables you to keep your mid or small size car and haul that around. Have you tried calling the company that made your lift and see what they recommend?

Response From streetcar76

Thanks, autojunky and thanks too, to the other guys. I think I need to get an SUV or a van.

Response From Hammer Time

Don't try to back up.........LOL

Response From Discretesignals

You can't jackknife it because the wheels swivel when you back up. Check it out. Pretty cool.


Response From Hammer Time

OH, I see. It's rigid. I thought it was a trailer.

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

They rag that thing out testing it. You could probably take that thing on Baja.

Question From Guest on oldsmobile alero 2001

I ran it out of gas and now it won't start. I can here the fuel pump working but no gas is getting to the engine.i have not changed the fuel filter in 3 years ,can this be the problem.

Response From dmac0923

its more likely that the fuel system is air bound now from the pump pumping air through the lines.

fill the tank, cycle the ignition without starting to prime the pump. and try to start it. it will take several attemps to get all the air out.


since there is air already in the system, it would be a good time to do the filter. usually its by mileage more then time elapsed.

Response From Guest

I did that and gas came out, but i still can't smell any gas going to the engine.

Response From dave284

Then you have to test the injectors and see if they are receiving any voltage....this is usually done with a noid light.

Response From Guest

Do you think it could be the fuel filter, because it was coaking a little bit in the last week,and when i ran out of gas it just shut down.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Just put a new fuel filter in and rule that out for now. Then it's got air again from just that. Prime the throttle body with starting fluid if need be. It will - well should - purge the air in lines out - it was running before you ran out of gas. Know that running out of gas it hard on the fuel pump. If it was weak that might have hurt it. Pressure test may show it's not up to par,

T

Response From dave284 Top Rated Answer

Your problem is that air has got trapped in the lines, the best way to get it out is to find the fuel test port on the fuel rail....push the middle core in, have someone try to crank until you see gas comming out...CAUTION !!! WHILE DOING THIS KEEP A RAG OVER THE TEST PORT AND YOUR HAND TO KEEP THE GAS FROM SPRAYING IN YOUR FACE

Lincoln struts/airbag

Showing 2 out of 19 Posts | Show 17 Hidden Posts
Question From dave284 on Lincoln struts/airbag

Hey Tom, How hard would it be to to install air bags for the suspention on a 95 Lincoln mark Vlll? I haven't done one before. I know this is your kind of car. BTW still sick but feeling better

Response From dave284

Tom, never mind the air bags , installing conversion kit no-air. The guy who has this car also wants to change the front brakes from shoes to pads on 63 Lincoln convertable, I wouldn't know way before my time,any suggestions.?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Get the air out is a great idea! I avoid those like the plague! I don't think you can on the Continentals but the Mark should be more like a T-Bird or Cougar around then.

The 63 I'm pretty sure is drum front brakes. Bearings in the drum, inner/outer and would look familiar with I think just one wheel cylinder on top. The early discs I think started in 64 and not sure which if any Lincolns. T-Bird had disc in all 64s up - those were a pill to rebuild calipers.
For the 63 you can get about everything new. If stuck the one stop shop is Baker's Auto, Putnam, CT -WWW.BakersAuto.com or email Sales@BakersAuto.com - tell Steve O. I said HI!

Funny About Lincolns: Town Car was just a trim package name just once in the 50s and once in the 60s. They were Continentals (full size), Mark was a different bird. 1980 was the first Town Car only as a body/chassis name for the car itself. Continental was once a Grenada, and a Taurus platform! Go figure??

T

Response From dave284

Tom, feeling better by the hour. The guy haven't towed it here yet ,but waiting to see it one repair at a time, my glass is already overfilled.I have just got a front grill for the 95 lincoln $150 from savage yard and the owner delivered the strut conversion kit. When I start on the 63 let you know.


THANKS TOM

Response From Lando10101

Hi guys them set ups are extremely expensive to replace. I have an account with arnott industries . Look them up for future issues they have very Well Priced conversion kits . come complete and easy to install . I dont work for them but I have used em and my experience was great .

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Response From dave284

Tell me about it. I've had worked on 6 cads past 2 months

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Just FYI: Air level has been around since at least the 60s. Just air shocks and rods to sense height at diff and an air pump/pressure release. Two Conts 89+90 failed with the air strut - no spring and hit so low it chewed up the rear tires!! Nice idea Ford! A Town car came here with them blown out - guy with zero bucks and you couldn't roll a golf ball under the thing!

There are features good and bad with every vehicle - I just wish someone would put them all in one vehicle!

Love the slogans over the years..........

GM "Keep your GM car all GM" Jay Leno ---- Why! GM couldn't do it right - why not let someone else's parts try??

Ford has a better idea! --- I'm still waiting!

A fav.... "This is not your Father's Oldsmobile" Me- damn tootin because your Father's Oldsmobile could suck that peice of crap thru the air cleaner and spit it out the exhaust and not cough!! ( I owned a boring 98 with HO 455 W-30 ((special order request -365bhp)) package that blew the doors off almost everything)

LOL,

T

Response From Double J

Hey Tom / everybody...

I owned a few 98's in my time....
MAN... When you put a boot in their a**...they would flat out sh** and git.....

Here's another fav...." Chevrolet ..." The Heartbeat of America"... good slogan if it was used back in the 50's,60's or early 70's but not in the 90's...lol....they changed it in the 90's to " Genuine Chevrolet"...lol...genuine what? crap?
I hope my heart beats a lot better than that.

Thanks for the laugh....

Response From dave284

Yea,my heart lies with the older 70s 455 wildcats it could over heat 3 times before any damage would result, the engine / head pure steel not like the cars today( beer cans on wheels) I know the 90s car backfire onetime every thing on it goes to heck I was kinda a buick man back then

Response From Tom Greenleaf



Did I hear "Wildcat?"

T

Response From dave284

EYE CANDY!

Response From dave284

I was removing the front struts and notice the upper ball joints shot. Can these be pressed out or do I have to replace the whole control arm? I want to make sure before I remove them. BTW since I'm installing these non-air struts is there a way to disable the ride control service display warning?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Duralast / Ball Joint - Upper
Warranty - LLT FA4071 $73.99 Application: Driver side Note: Arm & joint

Dave - Unless I clicked around wrong this is one piece and not so expensive to try to do just the joint. I don't really know the best way to get rid of the dash light and bet the bulb is hard to get at.........not sure but sometimes best to keep a blown bulb in the socket on some things,

T

Response From dave284

Thats the part, I had a feeling it would be a one piece. And for the warning light it appears as words just like the ones on the cadillacs , I'm thinking this vehicle would have a ride control module. If so ,by disconnecting it would it stop the messages comming on?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Right - It might need to be plugged in - once again don't know for sure. Before any of these cars I knew a couple people who really did take a screwdriver and hammer it in thru the dash to put out the damn lights! Ahhhh - don't do that

Didn't this car come with a feature that lowered the whole car an inch at a certain speed? That could be in conjuction with other adjustment and I'm full of "I don't know for sure on that" and it might not be a separate module,


T

Response From dave284

Tom I'm in the same boat, theres not much that I know about the ride control system on this one, the sensors looks the same as on a cad. and if the system is intergrated with the engine speed ,thats another kick in the @ss. I wonder if the people that sold the owner the struts would have any info. ?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Tidbit on this: I test drove one in 1993 brand new (was that first year for this?) with and for a customer and recall that this car lowered 1" at about 50-55 mph (thought that was slow at the time) for reduced wind resistance and may also have had a setting for "firm" vs "norm" handling control (Some T-Birds did) and we did have to go to the nearest interstate to even drive at any speed and dealer allowed us to.

He drove the car. I never noticed the lowering thing and he was a nut and took the sucker up over 100mph and held it there - no problem and I clearly recall with all vents, radio and things off the car was silent inside!!

None-the-less it almost certainly routed vehicle speed thru some control module for this crap. I serviced his cars for years and he didn't buy this one or I'd have known more about the things. For practical purposes cars just don't need to sustain speeds over 80 mph anywhere in the US that I know of so it's kind of stupid and expensive to design them for that for the US market.

Hey - even Kitty doesn't need that kind of speed. She leaves that to her relatives - "the Jaguars"


T

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I have to plead dunno for sure - never worked on any of those for anything. Is this an air spring or an air bagged strut set up? I just tried to get a pic of what they look like and fell short too?? The air spring should be straight forward and the air struts on at least the Continental set up was catastrophically EXPENSIVE!! These should be the same as most regular springs or struts for replacement. Ones that don't use a coil spring at all drop like a kittie dragging butt whey the blow out - I know that! Perhaps way2old or DanD has a procedure for this or have done them.

Hey - get well soon!

automatic transmission filter change

Showing 2 out of 11 Posts | Show 9 Hidden Posts
Question From Guest on automatic transmission filter change

transmission on a 89 oldsmobile cutlass. was wondering if anyone knows anything about how to change the filter. transmission is slipping out of gear and sometimes it wont go back in. other times you got to ease on it. sometimes foward drive wont work other times reverse drive wont work. anyone got a idea of what my problem might be.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Surely you have checked that the fluid is fairly clean and of course full now.

This slipping is usually game over t=for the transmission.

The filter should be held in by a small bolt or a bail. Changing fluid won't hurt but only a low chance of solving the trouble, T

Response From darrin

well i'm hoping that it might help fix it. i'm hoping that it might be a cloged filter but i know that it usuall means it's done. theres just one bolt right. besides the ones on the pan. this is my first time changing the filter.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I don't know how filter is fastened exactly but if you just look at it - it whould be fairly straight forward. It may not come out even with fasteners removed as it could be also friction tight to a strong rubber seal kind of like a PCV valve does.

Good luck and let us know if it works or helps. You'll know pretty quickly, T

Response From darrin

well man, i changed the filter and the fluid. started it up. ran good. took it to town. put 5 bucks in gas in it. broght it home. brought it up to about 70 to see what it would do cuz it was running good. real good. got to the road i live on and it stoped moving. put it in reverse and it started grinding. put it in drive and it moved but it wouldn't go. it just slowly creeped forward. i guess i need a new transmission. but i was wondering if you knew anything about that 3.3l bolting up to a transmission thats bolted to a 2.3l. i think it's the same tranny. just not sure. they both say hydromatic on the pan. what you think. should i try it.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Valiant effort Darren!

I think this battle is lost so the options are................

Good used (good salvage yards will know what models and years will just bolt in and they are pretty good at guessing which ones are good.) Some will install what they sell!

Off to get rebuilt which would have a substantial warranty. Getting pricey though and may get up to $1500.

New out of box is wicked expensive and I don't know of many who can take that expense on an older car.

Of interest: I always have driven older cars -- right now an 89 with 210K on it and it purrs but it's rusting and won't spend big bucks on that one anymore. There is a time to cut your losses and it's hard to tell when. There were a few that I spent way too much on as they were a love affair. At the end of the day they are just metal objects.

If this car is in nice overall shape go for it. Just looked at a flyer of used cars here and I was shocked at the prices!!

Good luck with whatever you choose to do.

Y'all come back if only to say "hi" T

well the engine thats in the grand am has 222,990 on the od. but it's in very good shape. no rust or anything. interior is perfect. the engine in the olds has maybe 20,000 on the rebuild. it reads 113,000 on the od. so i was going to try to mix and match. the grand am is a 92 and the olds is a 89. i know there both gm cars so wouldn't they bolt up. i'm going to have to experiment with it. in my book they say that all cars listed here come with one of two possible transmissions. a 3t40 a 3 speed and a 4t60e a 4 speed.the 3 speed was 96 and later the 4 speed 96 and earlyer. now both 2.3's and 3.3's are listed in the book. i'm wondering if it would work. i see your from massacusets. i'm originaly from new york but i'm living in south georgia now. i know what winter does to a car up there. total rust out. well man thanks for the info. i'll get back to you if i have any luck. and i'm gonna keep an eye on this site.

the 4t60e is an electronic trans. the other im not sure about but if it not i dont think they can be interchanged. by the way why did you even continue once you saw broken parts in the pan?? i mean they obviosly came from the transmission and i would guess they are their for a reason.

them plastic peices looked like they had been there for a long time. they left marks on the bottom of the pan and the entire pan was coated in a jello like substance that i'm guessing was metal particals and old fluid. wasn't sure if it was just a minor problem or not. but now we know. i belive both transmissions are 3t40's. gonna have that checked out.

well i pulled the pan off. the magnet is very dirty. like jello. and theres some white plastic ring type thing in the bottom of the pan about the size of a big grapefruit. it is broke. i found 3 peices of it. i couldn't find the rest of it. any idea. the filter was a pull off type. my fluid looks dark red. like maybe say brick red. i think i might have to rebuild this transmission or get a new one. i'm going to try the new filter and new fluid first just to see what it does. sometimes they have a way of fixing themselves. but sometimes they dont. i'll let ya know what happens . thanks for the info
