I've had my 92 Achieva S since 1992 - 153,000 miles. It's a very dependable automobile. The usual types of problems with a car this old, but never had a problem with the transmission. I'm planning on running it for another 50,000 or so.
I have a '93 S with 170,000. The Quad 4 engines (mine) have a history of warped cylinder heads (aluminum) and timing chain problems. I had mine at 130,000. The heads were poorly designed, but the timing chain problem is acceptable at 130K. No timing chain is forever.
The transmission sifter interlock solenoid location on a 1997 Oldsmobile Achieva is on the valve body. To reach it the drain pan and filter has to be removed.
Under car by where engine and transmission meet.
Generally the speedometer cable starts at the transmission and ends at the instrument cluster. Visually inspect from the firewall in the area of the instrument cluster and track back to the transmission. You should be able to find it with no problems. --mark
There are many reasons. Take it to a trans shop.
the transmission is clogged with congellied oil
I have a 94 Achieva that did the same thing. It was a bad light switch. Replaced the light switch and have had no problems since'
Oldsmobile Achieva was created in 1992.
no there is not i had to find out the hard way
I am trying to do this myself,any suggestions ========== Do not turn transmission! I myself, 8/29/09
You can disconnect it on the transmission and it should run fine. I have done the same and have had no troubles, 4 prong connector on the side closest to your front bumper on the transmission. Most Likely would be the Torque Converter Lock-up switch in the transmission. Can be changed without removal of the tranny.
I get about 30 miles to the gallon with my olds achieva.

Perhaps transmission fluid is "breaking down" at high temp. Try changing fluid and filter

If you have a 4 cyl eng, looking down from the front of the car it would be directly under the intake in line with the black breather box on top of the engine. it is attached to the transmission bellhousing.
somewhere around 500 or so, i have a 1992 W41 Achieva only like 1500 of them were made.
The 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva takes 19" replacement windshield wipers on both sides front.
is it hard to change the water pump on a 1992 Oldsmobile achieva. Yes, it is very hard to replace a water pump on an Achieva. When the pump died on my 1996 Achieva, the engine needed to be unbolted and removed to get to it. As I recall, it cost about $500. I have a 95 Olds Achieva 3.1 and the water pump was very easy to change. Mine is on the front passenger side of the engine. Very easy to get to, just be careful not to break any bolts off. lol
Unfortunately, the easiest way to change the hose (firewall connections) is from under the car. If your Achieva has the dual hose with the black valve across both lines, make sure you go to the dealer for the replacement. It's important for proper operation. Replacing with regular heater hose will cause problems down the road.
