What would make a 1899 oldsmobile cutlass ciera start and then die right away?
your engine will sound rough while at idle speed and your gas milage will start getting worse. it also might start to backfire and make a little more noise than it normally would.
The timing is very far off.
Cracked distributer cap or fuel pump
Had the same problem with my 92 cutlass ciera. It turned out to be ac compressor. Probably the clutch.
Sounds like timing is off,you didn't brake your timing belt did you.
Out of time or spark plug wires incorrectly installed.
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
AnswerSounds to me that your vehicle is off time. Check the timing on it. If the timing is off it will backfire through the carb and also if it is cross wired (firing order wrong) it will backfire through the carb.
What would make my 1990 camaro run good for 30mins then it doesn't want to start&runs rough& jumpy
a longer cam shaft will make a car idle rough
