SOURCE: The windows in the 95 oldsmobile cutlass ciera won't work at all

maybe the wire is severed where the door (drver dr) pivots. thats what was wrong with mine. there is a rubber boot with crinkles in it that hold all the wires together. you can also try replacing the switch board that controls the wndws on the drvr dr. hope that helps.

SOURCE: changed spark plugs and wires now car wont start

I know this might be obvious but the obvious is often the problem. Did you replace the coil wire that goes from your coil to the distributor cap? Also, double check to be sure that your wires are connected in the correct order. A little more clarification might help. Does it turn over? Does it just click? When you turn the ignition key then let off does the car clunk or make a wheezing sound?

SOURCE: 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera SL 2.2 head bolts

you have long bolts and short bolts, long bolts go in positions 1,4,5,8,9 - short bolts remaining positions, all long bolts go in back of engine, toward fire wall or front of dash, those are positions starting at passenger side to drivers side, 8,4,1,5,9, so 1 is in the center position, 9 on drivers side. short bolts in front, positions passenger side 7, 3, 2, 6,10, stud is in position 10. Tighten bolts in sequence, starting at 1, long bolts get 32Nm, short bolts get 29Nm, next pass torque all to 58NM, than final pass add an angle of 100 degrees, little more than 1/4 turn with wrench. Bolts should have 11.9 on head, the tightening specification is called a torque plus angle to yield, that is why in your gasket kit is tells you to replace the bolts, it is recommended. I know, because I am the GM Manager for fastening engineering. Hope this helps

Does a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera SL 3.3ltr 6 cyl have a timing in the e this car seems to drag when I hit the gas to accelerate quickly. Cutlass Ciera SL 3.3ltr


Say what? a timing in the e?? It has a timing chain, it has computer controlled timing advance, not adjustable. Um...

Such hesitation could be from old, worn spark plugs, old, worn plug wires, a dirty air filter, a dirty fuel filter. (Is your check engine light on when running? If so, look for the trouble codes.) Could be a sensor too, I think maybe the mass air flow sensor should be checked. Another sensor for this could be the throttle position sensor. If everything checks out so far, you should have the fuel pressure tested and checked. Just possibly the fuel pump needs changing. Testing the pressure will tell you.
All I can think of so far, enough to keep you busy checking?

What makes the fuel pump not kick on on a 92 Oldsmobile Cutlass


There is a red wire close to the battery in the front. It's not connected to anything. Apply positive voltage and that will run your pump for testing purposes.
