1988 olds cutlass ciera

Hi. i was wondering if u know where the fuel relays are on this car. i never had a problem with this car in this matter, which does leave me a little stumped. i also do not have a manual for my car. The one thing I do have is my Dad on my side to help me fix my car, which I am beyond grateful for. Any information you may have for me to pass along would be extremely appreciated! thank you again!

To find the relays you have to have someone turn the key on and off multiple times. While they are doing this you should hear the relays clicking away. Their will be at least two of them, they will be little black boxes about an insh across an an inch and a half long with wiresgoing in to the bottem of them.

Please contact me if your problem prisists.

Thanks, Charlie

My 1988 old cutlass ciera turns over but won't start I have fuel pressure and spark will run roughly for a sec if u pour gas in throttle body any ideas I'm stumped

Check fuel injector fuses. With the key one you should have power to the injector plug. You could have (gas) fouled out spark plugs. Or timing jumped.

Fuel injector relay location on a 1988 oldsmobile cutlas ciera

There is no fuel injector relay. If your Cutlass Ciera is the TBI version (Throttle Body Injection), the injector is controlled directly by the ECM (Engine Control Module).

1988 olds cutlas ciera service engine light comes

Try taking the car to Autozone or similar business for a free scan of your computer (your car is a pre-OBD2 system and your mechanic may have a scanner that reads only post-'96 autos). The scan will usually only point to problem areas, not specific components. That's where the mechanic comes in with specific tests. Good luck!

1988 3.8 olds cutlass Ciera stalls, no spark until it cools down

Check the prrimary and secondary resistance on your coil. Also check the resistance of the plug wires and plug gap.
