re; replacing a starter on a 1987 cutlass cierra is very hard as the one in mine just went. it is best to bring it to a mechanic as the whole engine has to be jacked up and it is well over a 3 hour job. cost me around $300 that was with new starter and labor and it was worth it prices will vary wherever you live. hope that helps

Can you put 18 or 20' rims on an 1989 cutlass ciera?

Will they fit?If the 88 strut is the same as the 89, then the answer is NO. 20" rims will fit the rear but not the front due to the clearance of the lower strut plate. Not with out some cutting and grinding. Actually they will i have a 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera S and i have two sets of rims on them 18's and 20's.All you have to do is find the right width of the rim and size of the tire.(ps my first set is 18' by 7.5 and tire size 225/40.The second set is 20' by 7.5 225/30)

Will an alternator from a 1989 Olds Cutlass Ciera fit a 1995 Cutlass Ciera?

Generally, no. The alternators for a 1989 vs. 1995 have adjusting ears on opposite sides, the internal bearings are somewhat larger/stronger on the 1995 model, and most importantly, the amperages differ, so there would be inadequate output if you were to put a 1989 alternator on a 1995 vehicle (the 1989 alternator is an 85amp, vs. 105 amp on the 1995). These guidelines are based on the assumption that you have a 4-cylinder model. If you have a V-6 engine, the differences are similar-- different mounting ears and different amperages.

Why won't your 88 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera stay running and drains battery when you put it in gear?

I would suspect a bad alternator and battery, have them both checked at the parts store. A car with a fully charged battery and a bad alternator will run until the battery is drained and then quit.

How do you remove and replace a starter on a 1992 Olds Cutlass?

I just changed the starter on my cutlass cierra 92, and I took it just one step at a time. I disconnected the battery, then I jacked up the car and put the front on jackstands. Then under the motor just behind the radiator, you will find your starter. There is a dust cover that is held by one nut. you must remove this. It has two bolts (i used 15mm socket) and if they haven't been moved in the last 13 years get ready to use wd40 to remove them. The starter should drop as you remove them and it fits out of the space between the frame and the rad pipes. Look carefully at the wires. Only one goes on the small connecter. All the others go on the large connecter. Put the new starter back in the reverse order, and it should work.

To change the starter motor on a Chevy Celebrity: 1 Disconnect the battery ground. Use protective gloves. 2. Set the parking brake. Raise the car as required and put on jack stands. 3. Disconnect the wires at the starter solenoid. Take note of where they come off so you can put them back on. 4. If there is a brace from the starter to the block remove it. 5. Take out the two bolts that hold the starter in place, pull the starter out of the bell housing. If there are shims between the starter and the bottom of the engine block save them for use with the replacement starter. Reverse the process to install a replacement starter.
