Bring to ashop that has an ABS scanner to determine the problem
i think better to change the engine oil for that one.for better results consult your nearest mechanic.
This could be ecm (electronic control module) problem.
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
if it is a standard transmission, check the clutch switch on the pedal, may fix the problem. it did on my accord. i own a calais w/o cruise. hope you find the problem.
it will be either the o2 sensor or the idle air control module. i had the same problem in 2 different cieras and each one had this problem.
What can cause the RPM on a car to jump while driving is a problem with the transmission. It could be a problem with the gears in the transmission itself.
if it smells like antifreeze inside the cockpit then your problem is the heatercore, since you can't see it.
I'd call a locksmith. They will be able to tell you the exact problem and how to fix it.
Check the coolant temp sensor, or just replace it if you have the money to burn.
There is a problem with the emissions system. Check for a loose gas cap. If that is not the problem, seek out the services of a professional.
Most likely because of a problem with the ABS system, which could be expensive to fix. It could also be caused by low brake fluid.
The P1406 code on a 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera 3.1 is the code for the EGR pintle position circuit. I know this because it was my question initially and we bought a code reader to check the problem. It is a factory specific code, so the answer is quite specific. Good luck !
ANSWERWhat do you need to know about the coil ignition wires? we can't help unless we know what the problem is lol be just a little more specific
Disconnect negative battery cable for about 5 minutes. The light will just come back on if you have not repaired the problem that set the light in the first place.
I put a 1972 350 old's engine in my 1984 cutlass supreme. It had a 307 and the swap went smooth. It bolted rite up to the turbo 350 transmission also. The engines have the same block so the weight difference was no problem. My cutlass is for sale if you know anyone that is interested. My #573-692-3558 The motor has 20,000 miles on a complete rebuild. Water pump, alternator, carburetor, distributor all new with the rebuild!
I have read a common problem with the 90-93 Oldsmobile cutlass is that the ground on the shift silinoid can cause it to lose 3rd and 4th gear, I am trying to figure out where it is located. Please if you know email email@example.com
Remove the radiator and replace it or have it repaired by a professional radiator repair shop. Go to Autozone buy STOP LEAK and pour it in the radiator or they have GLUE for leak problem.
The knuckle bolts on the brake caliper bracket for a 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass can be a problem to get loose because of rust and dirt buildup. A bolt loosening spray, like Liquid Wrench, can help free the bolt.
I had the same Problem on my 94... try replacing the spark plug wires.
I had a very similar problem on my 95 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme. After hours of pain staking work I finally found that a wire was loose. The wire is coated red and is beneath the fuse box on the drivers side directly behind the windshield wash tank. There is an eyelet on the end of the wire and one screw holding it in place directly under the fuse box. As soon as I tightened the screw my problem went away.
Had the same problem with my 92 cutlass ciera. It turned out to be ac compressor. Probably the clutch.
If a 1998 Oldsmobile 88 is shutting down after being driven for a while, the vehicle may have a problem with the computer. Something is telling the computer that the vehicle needs to be shut off. A new computer might fix this problem.
I had the same problem with my 1988 Cutlass. What you should initially do is check the key that you're using. Is it old or worn? If so, it could very well be the key you are using. I suggest that you get a new key made just to be sure. If this isn't the case, then I'm afraid I'm unable to help. Good luck.
