What kind of transmission is in a 85 cutlass supreme?
More than likely a metric 200. If it's a 4 speed auto then it's a 200-4R
Yes, and no. What year? Generally speaking the bottom of the line A-body was the F-85 A Cutlass was a better F85 A Cutlass S was a sporty Cutlass; the Supreme was a cushy Cutlass The 442 was a sportier Cutlass S The W30 was a sportier 442 Many parts are shared, all the way from the F85 to the W30, but then again many very significant parts differ- engines, cylinder heads, transmission, etc. And…
Why does the exhaust on your 85 cutlass supreme put out a blue-white smoke for about 20 seconds when it starts?
I believe it has something to do with the "lockdown" where the transmission does not shift down causing the engine to stall....On the driver's side of the engine toward the front bottom there is a BLUE connection that if you disconnect the override should not occur.........have an 85 cutlass ciera have been driving it that way over a decade and solved the same problem for me..........try it......Cutlass~Cutee
84 and 85 cutlass's came with olds 307 small blocks. and others came with V-6's. now an olds 307 will slide right into a 72 cutlass (i have one also (: as long as the cutlass was a v-8 (olds 350 rocket and olds 455's were the v-8s that came in the 72's.) so yes the bolt pattern on the tranny and the engine mounts will all match up with the 307 if the 72.
