What would make a 1899 oldsmobile cutlass ciera start and then die right away?
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
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.
Had the same problem with my 92 cutlass ciera. It turned out to be ac compressor. Probably the clutch.
you would use 5W-30W have the same car
It is incorperated with the PRNDL switch on the trans.
cracked or broken wiring, blown fuse
The Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera a was front wheel drive model. It was sold by General Motors from 1982 to 1996.
would have 2 say a bad ground..U have the voltage,just not a ---- GOOD ground.
i would say because it is not getting spark but i have a 77 cutlass with the same problem so check it for spark
R12 unless it has been retrofitted. I would suggest have it changed, as the cost of R12 is prohibitive.
The best place to find the brake line schematic for a 1995 Cutlass is at a GM dealer. The repair facility would have all of the relevant manuals.
brake booster has probably gone bad.
Depends on where you live and who fixes it. Expect to pay at least $500 and up.
If a timing chain broke, the engine wouldn't run and a compression test would read "0".
Stuck brake light switch.
The "mass air flow" sensor would be located in the snorkel between the air filter box and the throttle body.
No , it would crank , but if there was no power getting to the electric fuel pump it would not start
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.
Check the brake light switch, it's under the dashboard, connected to the brake pedal.
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 would say a good thing to buy is a Haynes book from a parts store for your car.
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.
