Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
My 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera stopped and now won't turn over (crank). This morning I was backing out of the driveway when the car died. It wouldn't even grunt when I tried to restart. The battery is good, the radio, horn, door locks and windows work fine. The headlights shine brightly and won't dim when I turn the ignition key. I replaced the starter solenoid but still no grunt. After trying all of this, I jerked on the shifter when it was in park and again in neutral. There is no change. I still won't turn over (crank).

First step is see the Condition of the oil.
Them you need to see if the ENGINE is NOT LOCKED UP.
To Do that, you will need a Rachet and Socket to Try TURN the CRANKSHAFT pulley by Hand.
If you are ABLE to Rotate,
And the Battery is good, Check all the Connection from the BATTERY to the STarter motor,
And the Ground Cable. From battery To the Chassis and the Bolt at the Transmission.
But if you are Unable to TURN over the Crankshaft Pulley.
The Engine is Locked up.
And will need to take a Opinion of a Mechanic .
To be sure Of the problem and the condition that may affect to the ENGINE went damaged.
I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya...
