My 1991 olds mobile cutlass calais wont start,after I added fuel injector cleaner because,the car was having hesistating problems below 25 miles an hour and it might of been a spark plug problem or fuel...


When you chaged the air filter & sprayed Gumout carb cleaner, you got rid of a little gunk in the
air intake, but when you added the fuel injector cleaner (its the same stuff as carburator cleaner) to the fuel tank, you "cleaned out" ALL the ****/gunk/buildup/dirt in the fuel system which has built up since 1991 and sent it straight to the fuel filter, which is now clogged. The reason that the car tries to start, but fails, is that it'll successfully burn up any fuel that gets past the clogged fuel filter, but the engine consumes that small amount of gasoline quickly, then dies.
Your solution: change the fuel filter.
The fuel filter is located:
Under vehicle, driver side, below seating area, near fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line

1992 olds cutlass ciera 2.5 ltr popping through the carb when you hit the gas pedal it popps or back fires throught the carb and you can see fire sometimes with the air cleaner off


I would make sure the firing order is correct. It is 1-3-4-2. If that's OK I would check for a valve train problem such as a worm camshaft.

My 1991 Calais is starting to stall out at red lights & then will almost die unless I have my foot on the gas. We have already replaced the spark plugs & both of the ignition coils. It also will...


There is a good possibility the Mass Air Flow sensor is dirty.
You could also have low fuel pressure, or a vacuum leak, such as the EGR valve sticking

No start, injector dumping in fuel


When trying to start an engine that you feel might be "flooded" , hold gas pedal down to the floor while cranking . This will stop the injectors from triggering. You might have to remove spark plugs to clean and dry out from fuel. Hope this helps

Air filter full of fuel


Sounds like your injectors are going bad. It concerns me that you have a odor of gas in the trunk since all of the fuel lines run under the car. Check your fuel filler line for a leak.
