Remove the inside trim panel. Loosen the 2 -3/8" bolts holding the metal window bracket to the lift arm. Raise the window up manually and install a wedge to hold it up or wire the bracket to the top of the door frame to hold the window up and in place. I just did this to my kid's 95 olds cierra this morning. Rt rear window glass was stuck open.
Work one at a time to avoid connecting the wrong spark plug wire. Gently pull on the wire at the connection point to release it from the plug. Use a spark plug socket to remove the old plug. Measure the gap on the new plug and ensure it is at .045. Install the new plug and reattach the wire. Repeat for the other plugs.
It is likely you do not need any new parts. Follow the directions below until you get to the note about the "Lever" (the threaded rod). Turn the adjuster out a few rotations and your door should open like new.Replacement
I just replaced my 1994 Buick Regal exterior door handle (same one) with an aftermarket one for $47 I found online. I should have taken pictures, but it really was not hard to replace.
Tools I used: Adjustable wrench (I'm sure you could use a socket wrench) T20 Torx screwdriver Philip and flathead screwdriver
Open the car door, and using your adjustable wrench or socket wrench, remove the two black caps (screws?) with big rounded tops from the top of the door by turning them counter clockwise.
Use your Philips screwdriver to remove the screw from the bottom of the piece of door covering the handle apparatus.
There is another screw inside that with a Philips head that needs to be unscrewed that is keeping the door handle in place, just below the lock and toward the outer edge of the door.
You are almost done removing the door handle, all that needs to be done is separating the exterior door handle from the interior parts. This is done in two places:
1) There is a metal piece with screw threads on the end, and a rounded part that is on the threads. This rounded part connects to the door handle through a hole, with a metal covering to keep it in place. We are going to call this the "Lever" from now on. Using the flat side of your screwdriver, gently lift and loosen the covering from the old door handle so you can remove the Lever from the hole.
Note: If your door handle opens too easily, screw the round part down a little further on the threads, and if you can't open the door, the round part needs to come up a little on the threads.
2) Using your T20 Torx screwdriver, remove the screw just below and medial to the door lock.
Remove the old door handle, taking care to separate the door lock from the handle without pulling on the wiring.PUTTING THE NEW PART ON
1) Slide the new part into the door so it fits just right. 2) Attach the top big black cap (screws to the top part of the door handle using your socket wrench or adjustable wrench. This will hold the handle in place better for the rest of the attachment. 3) Replace the Philips head screw used to tighten the handle to the door. This is the one located just lateral and inferior to the door lock. 4) Put the key lock in its place, and replace the Torx screw to tighten it in place. 5) Use your flathead to lift up the tab on the part of the door handle where the Lever will go and slide it out a bit. Insert the round part of the lever into the hole, and tighten the covering, making sure the latch goes back into the hole you slid it out of.
TEST THE DOOR. If it does not open when you pull on the handle, follow the part for removing the lever and adjust the round piece higher up. If it opens too easily, adjust it lower down. TEST THE DOOR. Repeat until you get it just right.
Place the door handle cover in place, and screw the big black cap into place, followed by the Philips screw that should be remaining at the bottom of the cover.
Your door handle should be replaced and working great! I just did this to my door this morning, and fixed the passenger side door (which would only open when we yanked it really hard). Both open easily now!
Not alot of info. But I suspect you are wondering how to retract the caliper piston so that you can get the new pads in and the whole assy back on the rotor. Since they are "self adjusting" real breaks (that tighten slightly when you use the brake while in reverse) the caliper piston must be rotated counter clockwise while being compressed.
You need to make or buy a special tool.
I got mine at harbor Freight for $20.00. Hope this helps.
New Answerer: I just finished doing this job for a 1990 Cutlass Supreme. I was able to compress the piston by putting gentle pressure on the piston with a 7 or 8 inch C clamp and then rotated the piston CLOCKWISE with Channel Lock pliers for the right rear brakes. (I assume it is counter-clockwise for the left rear.) I got a friend to slowly tighten the clamp while I turned the piston. It is important to use just the edge of the pliers so that the rubber bellows around the piston will not be damaged. I also had to grind the edges of the rotor a little to take off the edges for several inches on each side of the rotor so that the new pad material would not be damaged when the caliper and new pads were slipped over the rotor.
can i reset it or replace it ,where is it on the car
Well, assuming that you are talking about headlights, the low beams are the dimmest settings for the drive headlights, while high beams are the brightest setting.
This just happened to my '94 Ciera. A wire to the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) had been cut. Repair of the wire corrected the problem. The sensor is located on the transmission extension on the passenger side. Can be seen from underhood but better serviced by removing the passenger side tire and working through the wheel well opening. If your wiring is good, suspect the sensor. $40 part.
The MAF sensor is always located in the air duct between the air filter and the throttle
I'm a retired ASE Master/L-1 Technician. I still keep current with the latest automotive technology. Visit my blog for cool articles and TSB's:
On my 92, you turn off radio, then hold down the little "set" button to right of radio/clock, then, with other hand, hold either search or scan button for hours or minutes
the Romans were the first to wear the ring on the third finger of the left hand
see the answer and please let me know if is it right or not at this e-mail email@example.com
The low pressure valve to put in 134a on a 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera V6 is on the passenger side of the engine compartment. It is about 12 inches below the alternator.
With the radio off, press the set button. Scan button sets the hours, Seek button sets the minutes.
Have a mechanic check your oil levels, fuel filter, air filter and idle. If you can't afford a mechanic....In the mean time, before your car comes to a stop, try shifting it into nuetral, then brake, then back to drive when you move again.
Could also be the TCC solenoid in auto trans. They get sticky and don't release when coming to a stop. Causes stall, just like stick-shift forgot clutch. Extremely common problem with GM auto trans.
You'll probably have to buy a new one
Between 15 and 19 MPG.
I had an '86 with 307 4bbl....still computer controlled. Running a TH350 and 2:29 gears it averaged 26 MPG at 70-75 from Flagstaff, AZ to St. Louis, MO. Depends on state of engine, gears, tranny, how you drive it, etc.
14 inch rims are the spec size. You can use P185/75/R14 , P185/70/R14 , P185/70/R14 , or P185/75/R14 all will work with no problems. I have an 88 olds cutlass Ciera and have used these with both winter and all season.
Underneath your hood, behind the passenger side headlight, behind the core support, is a bank of 2-8 relays. One of those relays is the relay needed for your fuel pump. There will also be a fuel pump relay fuse located there.
Well, there are many out there in the market. You can go to a auto store such as AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, or Pepboys. They should have book or a device that should help you fimd the right one. You can also ask a employee for help too. I suggest going to Walmart, they sell the same type for less money.
Have the timing checked. Actually, do yourself a favor and have a full diagnostic done.
