Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

Turns over, wont start

Started fine this morning, shut it off to add coolant to pick up tank then wouldent run. No spark to one coil so I replaced it-AC Delco. All coils have spark now. Smells like its getting fuel. Cold morning in MI but car was in garage overnight. Do fuel pumps just quit? Perhaps its a module or sensor. Car has over 100K but is maintained very well. Flordia car. New GM wires, fuel filter and plugs (NGK) within last 18 months. Car normally runs perfect. Recently has had an occasional rough start up idle. Coolant may be leaking in engine also but no sign in oil. Thank you, Dave.

Will bad knock sensor stop ignition from sparking?


I'm going way back into my alcohol erased memory on this one, but check your oil level sender. I ran into this problem many years ago and it seems like that was the culprit.

Either a weak battery or a defective starter. Have you checked your battery voltage when it will not crank? Cleaned your battery terminals?

You could have weak engine control module or a pick-up coil. Have your module tested first.

On the 2.0 and 2.4 engines there is an ignition module that fires the coil from input from the computer and sensors.
You may have to get a shop manual to have the testing procedures needed to check the module.

Wont Start - No Spark


Older VW's and Audi's are notarious for this type of behavior. You actaully need a Vag or good diagnostic tester to tell you which plugs are mis-firing. You will need to replace a coil-pac or two. VW's issued a recall notice about 3 months ago about this issue and intends to re-imburse owners on certain models and years for coil-pac repalcement. After market coil-pacs should cost less than $50.00 each. Hope this helps.

I had a similar problem and believe it or not it was the CAT. An easy way to test for this is to remove the O2 sensor right in front of the CAT. Once you removed it, plug it back in while unscrewed from the exhaust pipe and start up the truck. If it runs fine, the CAT is your problem. This is just a guess and it would be an easy and very cheap($0) test. You did not say if the truck was diesel or gas. Mine is gas that was exhibiting the same problem as yours...good luck!
