Had the same problem with my 92 cutlass ciera. It turned out to be ac compressor. Probably the clutch.
Cracked distributer cap or fuel pump
1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera It will start up then after 5 seconds the engine dies What could be the problem?
possible ignition modual, what is your fuel presure, does car restart immediatly or after it sits for a while Possibly clogged fuel filter, or bad fuel pump.
Your v belt came apart on a 1990 Oldsmobile cutlass ciera cruiser now it trys to slip off crankshaft pulley won't start how can you get a diagram that shows how the belt goes on?
I would say a good thing to buy is a Haynes book from a parts store for your car.
Engine rotates but will not start
Why would a 1991 olds cutlass ciera not start after engine gets hot until the engine has cooled off a bit?
I have a 92 cutlass ciera doing that, would run til it got hot, then die...ended up being the crank shaft sensor. hope this helps
Start with replacing the fuel filter.
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.
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
Same procedure as all vehicles. Start with bleeding the right rear then left rear then right front then left front keeping the reservoir full at all times.
That is a typical thing on most cars, let it cool down some then try again
You start by disconecting the negative - battery terminal. climb undre the car and dixconect the 2 whires going to the starter. Then unbolt the starter from the transmission. replace is the same way, just oppisite. If you don't even know where the starter is than, follow the positive battery cable till it stops. that is the starter.
You just had your alternator replaced and also recently the crankshaft sensor in your 1992 Olds Cutlass Ciera yes and now it cranks but won't start what is wrong with it now?
check your battery or you spark plugs
Park the car on a level surface. Drain the oil, change the filter, and add 4.5 quarts of the correct weight oil. Start the engine and run for 1 minute. Shut down and wait 30 minutes. Check the oil level and add as necessary to reach the full mark. You now know the capacity.
Its the same as on all cars. The safety neutral switch is why you cannot start your car in gear.
be more specific what kind of noise if any at all wont turn over ? it will not even crank up
Could be in need of a tune up. Start with replacing the spark plugs and spark plug wires.
By your description it could be anything from a dead battery to a bad fuel pump, we need a lot more info on what it's doing.
? Thermostat ?, do you have good heat, may make the computer ( ecm ) assume your on cold start up.
OOOH Dang carburetors anyway! Ha.These things can be more tempermental in between summer and winter. The proper way to start one of these vehicles, is to first depress the accelerator all the way to the floor, and release. The same is true for both summer and winter. What this does is set the choke/fast idle, and primes the intake with a little bit of gas. This is supposed to help start the engine. The next… Read More
The most common reason for an engine not to start is a lack of fuel. A plugged air filter can cause and engine to idle rough or not idle at all.
Perform throttle body sevice Perform idle /air control motor service,replacement
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.
You have a 88 olds cutlass ciera that shuts off some times in stop go traffic after it shuts off you are able to start it up again when applying the gas pedal there's a slight hesitation?
the throttle position sensor is bad
How do you know what is killing the battery on a 90 cutlass ciera if you just had the alternator changed?
it may be the starter going out doing it . it will kill the alternator if it keeps going . I know i had it happen to my 96 olds replaced the alt still didnt start and the starter fixed it
Symptoms of a worn timing chain are some or all of these: Rough idle. Backfiring, bucking, or sputtering. A rattling noise from the chain. Engine may not start.
There is a fuel cut-off switch under the hood that needs to be reset. Should be on the left side near the back.
My 1995 would cut off while driving ,i'd turn ignition off and start right back up found that the fuel pump was going bad replaced and works great. You have to pull the tank it's inside , be careful when working around fuel if your'e not mechanically inclined hope that helps
That sounds like a transmission problem, it could be a gasket but possibly more work. You might be looking at around $250 of work but sounds like that's all that needs to be done.
If it has spark and fuel I would suspect the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor has failed. If it has no spark, I would suspect the crank sensor has failed. If it has no fuel, I would suspect the fuel pump has failed.
If you remove the ashtray you will find the turn signal flasher behind it, a bit to the right (close to the fuse box). In my car the flasher was a silver cylinder with two yellow lines and it had a black clip attached to it. If at least one of your turn signals is still functioning (blinking) first follow the sound and then start taking things apart.
prob a bad battery if it doesn't get enough charge from altenater to resupply cold cranking amps iniatal cranking will be hard so get your altenater and battery checked Sometimes it can be the oil. Some people don

I have an 89 Olds Cutlass Calais SL...and you add coolant, very slowly, to the reservoir on the passenger side of the engine compartment. A little coolant, a little water, a little more coolant, a little more water...you get the idea. mixing the antifreeze 50 / 50 to start with will cut down on the confuse...tuner1978
Cylinders 1 and 4 on are the same coil. So I would probly start by replacing the 1/4 coil, and if that doesnt solve anything, replace the ignition module next.
The fuse is in the fusebox but unless it's labled I couldn't tell you which one it is, just start checking all the fuses to make sure there all good unless you still have your owners manual and it will tell you in there.
the sensor is right in the front of the car down under the exhaust manifold on the right side of the ignition coil module. There are three bolts that hold the ignition coil module in place. One on the bottom and one on each side. When you detach it the three ignition coils will come off as well. Its just a small L shaped piece on the right. make sure you disconnect the battery before… Read More
That's easy, stick you finger in it!! Sorry had to, if I didnt, someone else woulda. But back to business.. This is actually pretty easy to check on. First start by looking into the socket itself. These sockets, because of their location, frequently have change fall into them, or some small screw or something. If you see something in there, its gotta be fished out. If the socket is clear, rear behand the socket, you… Read More
inside the steering column accepts the key but I believe the ignition module is a small unit above the carburetor - square and about 1/4 inch thick. when the car chugs and stalls or just does not start replce this module. It may fail intermittently and is often overlooked. Occurs at about 40 to 45,000 miles in my experience.

If you're going to undertake a proceeding like that, it would be well worth your while to invest in a repair manual. Also, to start with, you should give us more information, like which model year vehicle you are working on, which engine it is equipped with, and whether it has air conditioning or not. All of these can affect the procedure for replacing the radiator.
