1986 oldsmobile cutlass supreme no compression

Showing 2 out of 3 Posts | Show 1 Hidden Posts
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

no compression in 86 oldsmobile engine

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From Guest on no compression in 86 oldsmobile engine

replaced head gasket and have no compression in the engine what so ever. the pistons are not ceased and the firing order is correct. everything is moving in time so i don think it is the timing chain. but i cant figure out why there is no compression
-valence

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Ok - it's an Oldsmobile - any particular one?

Put a cylinder on TDC and use compressed air in plug hole and you'll see where the compression went. If this ran it strongly points to valve timing being way off (chain/belt) and probably an interferance engine

Chevy S-10 Valve noise

Showing 2 out of 6 Posts | Show 4 Hidden Posts
Question From Rwolf on Chevy S-10 Valve noise

I have an 1996 Chevy s-10 two wheel drive with an 2.2 engine, with only 50,000 miles on it. I think that the valves need to be adjusted, but I'm finding no info. on how to do it or if you can do it. I can't think that it would be an oil pump problem, but I will check that with an mechanical gauge. Would putting an engine scrub additive in it or using an thicker oil (30 w) instead of the 5w30 that it says to use, or is that not a good idea. Any help would be great !

Response From Hammer Time

What is the problem with the truck that your trying to repair?

Response From Rwolf

I'm having excessive chattering noise that sounds to me that the valves are slapping around and need to be tightened, almost sounds like I have a diesel.

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

It could be a number of things but there is a TSB concerning the timing chain on that vehicle.


Here it is




File In Section: 6 - Engine
Bulletin No.: 87-61-21A
Date: April, 1998 Subject:
Timing Chain Noise Conditions (Replace Timing Chain) Models:
1993-96 Buick Century
1992-97 Chevrolet Beretta, Cavalier, Corsica
1993-96 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
1995-97 Pontiac Sunfire
1994-97 Chevrolet and GMC S Models
with 2.2L Engine (VIN 4 - RPO LN2)
This bulletin is being revised to correct Parts Information. Please discard Corporate Bulletin 87-61-21 (Section 6 - Engine).
Condition
Some of the above noted vehicles may exhibit a clattering noise at idle speed originating from the timing chain and front cover area. Chain wear in excess of the maximum travel of the timing chain tensioner may create noise that may be objectionable to some customers.
Cause
Lack of regular maintenance, as referenced in the Owner's Manual and the resultant lack of lubrication and buildup of deposits inside the engine may accelerate wear of the timing chain. In addition, there is a small lubrication hole in the front oil passage plug that could become blocked with debris if proper engine maintenance is not followed.
Correction
If the owner of the vehicle indicates a noise concern, inspect the timing chain and tension In addition, confirm oil flow from the front oil passage plug and replace the timing chain, timing chain tensioner, and both the camshaft and the crankshaft sprocket if necessary to correct the noise.

Response From Rwolf

Thanks Hammer Time, I will check that out, I still would like to know if you can adjust the valves or not. Thanks Again Richard

Response From Hammer Time

Valves don't go out of adjustment on their own. Look elsewhere for your problem. If it is coming from the valves, it more likely an oil pressure issue.

Mysterious no start 1996 Olds 88

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From khodges on Mysterious no start 1996 Olds 88

My 1996 Oldsmobile 88 3.8L will not start. It died all of a sudden and when I opened the hood I found out that the tensioner bracket had broken. Replaced that along with a new belt but will not run. It turns over but just won't catch. No spark in any of the plugs and I can hear the fuel pump turning on when I try to start it. But after picking a few peoples' brains, I think that it might be a timing issue. If there a way to check the timing without taking everything apart? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Timing will not cause a NO spark issue; short of the timing chain being broken and the camshaft not turning.
It is possible that the cam or crankshaft sensor(s) or their wiring harnesses got hit when the belt came off; I've seen that before.
Just a thought?
