No

But the ABS Braking System --can do funny things-- if you
have a light lite on dash

The transaxle may have failed

It is about due for a rebuild after 13 years

1990 Buick Silouete loses power when accelerating, as engine warms it gets worse. Changed filter and had gas tank cleaned out recently did not solve the problem. It drives ok at normal speeds, it spudders...


You are a 1990 Oldsmobile sihouette with a 3.1 these vehicle are speed density in other word you are equipt with a MAP (manifold air pressure) when this sensor fails you loose the ability to accelerate or hesitate as you accelerate make sure the vacuum hose is connected to it and it is no leaking vacuum if the hose is okay and it is electrically connected correctly your fix is to replace the MAP sensor

Acts like vapor lock


when they went to fuel injection the fuel that was not used returned to the tank thus cooling the fuel and ending vapor lock, my question is did you do a fuel pressure test? and di you do a fuel leak down test? and the first thing I would do is change the fuel filter. with ethanol in the gas it kills the filter. I have to replace mine every three months they just plug up from that junk. Other than that the only other thing would be a coil breaking down when it gets hot the coil shorts out when cool it starts so check those things first. be sure fuel pressure is 50 to 60 PSI and does not drop below 30 PSI for at least a minute, if it does the fuel pump check valve is bad, also the fuel sock could be bad as well.

Brakes on my 1989 oldsmobile cutlass ciera ..


Sounds like your brake hose is broken down inside(the rubber hose between the caliper and the meatal brake line) . It will let fluid in and not let it back out acting as a 1-way check valve causing a drag and your pads to wear out early.

Good Luck.
