Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

2 Answers

Fuel problems I have a 1993 Olds Siera. In October of this year my car died on the freeway. I had it towed home and it started right up as the tow truck pulled away. I took it to a local shop and they ran some pressure tests and just ended up puting a new fuel filter in. The old one was plugged. I thought that had fixed the problem but it happened again. One time it just died a couple of times going about 35 miles an hour and started back up again and then ran good up until tonight. Well tonight it died again but I couldn't get it started. So...I called the BF and he planned on towing me home. But I got back to the car and it started up again. I got it home and it died as I finished pulling in the driveway. Does anyone have any idea of why my car is doing this?

    Thank you dopey...If that is the problem, I guess I will have to take her to the shop. It sounds like it would be a very involved and dangerous deal to work on. My BF is real good with cars but he won't tackle this one. Thanks again. :)

I have a very similar style car, and I have very similar issues...I have replaced my fuel filter, fuel pump, and a few other minor maintenance issues. The problem persisted, so I took it to the shop. The trusted mechanic said that my IAC was sticking, and other than that, I had PCM issues. I have replaced the IAC and am in the process of replacing my PCM. I believe this will solve my problem, because the symptoms fit the diagnosis. My symptoms include: irradic idle, stalling, and what felt like a fuel issue. Really, the Powertrain Control Module was failing. Anyway, I Hope this helps you in your predicament.

Car died right as getting off freeway had to tow home again

shouldnt worry about compression ratio pressures as yet ,if all gauges going up the swanie then either altenator is overcharging and the voltage burnt things out or a gremlin got into works when you visited the mountains in whick case call ghost busters ,must go first customer has arrived
