There isn't much information in that question. Is it cranking? If not, it could be battery, battery terminals, starter, keyswitch, neutral safety switch... who knows what else. If it's cranking but not catching, always go back tot he basics; compression, ignition and fuel. If any one of the three isn't there, it won't run. First and easiest, check the ignition. Find a spare sparkplug, pull a single plug wire from the engine, connect the sparkplug to the wire, lay the plug on a solid piece of metal and crank the engine to see if you have a good strong spark. If not, track it down. If you have spark, go on to fuel. Try a little starting fluid to see if you can get it to start briefly. If it starts with starting fluid you probably have a fuel delivery problem. If it won't start with starter fluid run a compression test.
Engine rotates but will not start
Possible loose convertor bolts.
There are a number of reasons why a 95 Cutlass would start then shut right off. The problem could be the fuel line going bad, the battery terminals could be dirty, or loose, or wires could be bad.
It might be a starter going bad. Had the same problem and was told that it just needed a new starter.
The problem may be your ignition key. I have a 97 Cutlass GLS and one of my two keys causes this problem, the second key works fine.
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
there must be some sort of wiring problem which is causing them to burn.
The Optispark distributor is notorious for causing this problem.
Could be a problem with the starter motor, might be causing it to short out or something
One way is to disconnect your remote start and see if the battery dies over the next few days. If not then reconnect the remote start and see if it then dies....if so then yep its your problem.
What would make a 1899 oldsmobile cutlass ciera start and then die right away?
The vision could have several problems causing it not to start. Check for ignition fire and fuel pressure first to help determine the problem.
Several things could be causing this problem. The timing could be off, or several sensors could be causing the problem. If possible check the computer codes. If not, then start with a possible clogged egr valve, then the crankshaft sensor.
Your 2000 GMC Sierra Vortec might be hard to start because the battery or the starter are worn or dead. The GMC Sierra might also be hard to start because of a clogged fuel filter.
A mechanical problem is causing your Ford Explorer not to lock with the bottom when your start the car.
Sierra de Albarracín
Sierra, since its a name and thus a proper noun it should start with a capital letter.
we are having the same problem and we put it in the shop its is the pcm computer....
The most obvious thing to check when a 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme won't start is to make sure that the vehicle has gas. You should also check the battery. If the car clicks when you try to start it, it is likely the alternator.
A bad EGR valve should not cause the engine to not start. There is most likely another problem that is causing the engine to not start.
you PROBABLY have a defective park/neutral safety switch
I had this problem with a 91 Cutlass Supreme. I had to send it to the shop, and it took them a while to figure it out. Turned out to be an electrical short affecting the number 1 fuel injector. It was a nightmare, we changed the fuel pump and ECM. I don't know for sure if this is your problem, but it might be.
Had the same problem with my 92 cutlass ciera. It turned out to be ac compressor. Probably the clutch.
Any vehicle in which the engine spins (cranks) but won't fire has an electrical problem with the ignition system (but not the starter) or a fuel problem. There are a number of good answers to the underlying cause of a "no start" on different vehicles in another part of WikiAnswers. And you got links....
