Probably because you need to check the engine.

With a scan tool, or try turning key on, off, on, off, on and counting the blinks of the check engine light. blink, blink, blink, pause, blink would be 31.

Possibly burning oil. Check compression.

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.

Pull out the transmission dipstick (red handle) just as you would for checking the motor oil, but with the engine running and the transmission in neutral or park.

If the check engine light is blinking , an engine cylinder misfire has been detected

dead battery, blown fusable link, severely cracked or corroded cables. especially check battery ground to chassis and engine.

Check your RPO codes. If it has K60 then you have a 100 amp alternator.

A blinking "check engine" light is an indication that the computer has detected a SERIOUS problem that can result in permanent damage to the engine. You need to connect a diagnostic code scanner to find out what the computer has detected.

Check to see if your gas cap is tight.

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.

It is indicating that there is a fault with the engine of the car. You need to take it to a garage for repair/service.

Add it the same place you check it, through the dipstick tube. Check the level with the transmission hot, in park, engine running, on level ground. Use only Dexron fluid. Do not overfill!!!!!

That engine number is from a BIG block Oldsmobile engine. Check some links below.

first you nee to check and see if your car is referred to as OBDI or OBDII if its ODBI then you start with the car off.. turn the key to run but do not start the engine.. at this point you have less that 5 seconds to push the gas pedall all the way to the floor and press the overdrive button five times... then the check engine light will stay on.. and then blink... next its going to blink out the code for you for ex. blink-pause-blink blink-pause blink blink blink-pause blink n that would mean the problem code is 1231 just Google BMW problem codes and use that dcode to find out what the issue is..
