Question about 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

1989 oldsmobile runs then stalls and a host of other problems

I own a 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cierra, with 2.8 liter engine. I will be driving and the battery charge light and oil light both come then the car stalls. The battery was checked at Auto Zone and they said it would not take a charge and it was dead. I had bought the Energizer battery at Pep Boys and took it there and they checked it and said it works and doesnt need a charge. Who is right? Also the battery was taken out and the alternator was left in the car and the car still ran. The battery was put back in now when i start the car it sounds like its chugging and trying to get power. When i move the car it stops and the lights come on again. I have leaks in the motor oil and the transmissions lines apparently i was told. Where can i get diagram of where those lines are and where the fuel filter goes to also? If anyone can help me with these problems i would appreaciate it. Up until these last 2 months the car was running ok.

You can get the diagrams from auto zone for the lines and fuel filter; check the drive belt and check for vacuum leaks or if any vacuum lines are off and if you have a battery tester or charger of your own or know someone who does then check the battery yourself before taking to anyone else to ask them to check it again you can pick up a battery charger/tester at Walmart along time ago I had an olds that the starter was drawing power from the battery so this could also be your problem to look for

SOURCE: 1984 Olds Cutlass Cierra Body Frame matches what other cars.

I'm not sure that they are an exact match, but the equivalent GM vehicles for the Cutlass Ciera were the Chevrolet Celebrity, the Buick Century, and the Pontiac 6000.

2.8 engine Would start when cool, but stall after

89 cierra? It should be DIS ignition so you can't have the timing too high. You said it has fuel and spark. Fuel pressure and injection pulse. Does it try to start if you spray carb cleaner into it?
