Change your idle control sensor, but first make sure your throttle linkage isn't sticking.

That year Ciera came with two diiferent engines. if you have the 2.5 liter engine it is located under the hood, center, rear engine area, below ingnition coil pack and DIS module, mounted in engine block. If it is the 3.3 liter engine it is located under the hood, passenger side, lower engine area, front of crankshaft pulley, mounted in engine block. i hope this helps you and good luck.

What would be wrong with your 88 olds cutlas ciera if you're driving down the road and car dies and won't restart?

My car did this for a while until it would no longer move and I was told all sorts of things including cleaning (all the gunk near the MAF -hosing) which made it run for a month but did idle too high. So diagnose and get the codes from your car- the paperclip way (autozone cant cause its older than 1992).
Codes I pulled pertaining to this issue were 22 (Throttle Position Sensor- TPS Signal Voltage Low) , 23 (Air Intake Temperature- MAT Low Temp Indicated), and 34 (Mass Air Flow Sensor- MAF)
Easy to DIY with these 3 sensors

1992 Oldsmobile cutlass ciera s 3.3 liter V6. While driving or idle in park, the idle kicks up high and the check engine light comes on. This symptom is not constant. It comes and goes sporadically. After...

Have you read out the diagnostic trouble codes? Since the check engine light has come on, there should be one or more stored diagnostic codes. Since your 1992 is before OBD-II became the standard (in the US at least) you'll need to do either the wire/paper clip method or find someone with an OBD-I scan tool for GM products.

Codes are reading low tps voltage, mapps high voltage ignition on low voltage at idle. Idle surges sputers and stalls when driving. Replaceed mapp and tps with no improvment?

Have you consider to check the battery power. I believe the main problem you have is either the battery or the alternator. Due to these two things with low voltage the brain ( ECU ) does not have the enough power to work. Good Luck.

My 1993 cutlas supreme stalls randomly while idling or driving , but restart right away

You will need to change the crank position sensor first and see if it corrects the problem. It is located behind the engine near the firewall. It's a bit tricky to get to it, you would need to rotate the engine forward then look under the exhaust manifold and under the cylinder closest to the drivers side. Use a 10 mm deep socket to loosen bolt. After replacement and it is still stalling then you will need to replace the ECM (vehicle computer). If it turns out to be the computer, go to your local junkyard to get an inexpensive replacement Click on the link below to view the CPS, it is around $22,model:Cutlass+Supreme,year:1993,brand:Delphi,part:Crank+Position+Sensor)&ptc=S1171391678W45d204bec356b&ptid=ptc45891f6tnywz&id=Olqtv7cphi

Code 16 on a 1990 olds cutlass ciera

Code 16 on my repair manual shows a low voltage to the ECM (computer). Try cleaning the 2 fuse connectors that supplies battery voltage to the ecm. The fuse box is on the front drivers side of the engine compartment. I have the same problem with my car with a intermitten fast idle and check engine light.
