Have you had someone plug a computer into it and see if it is logging a code? this code be a v.s.s. sensor, to a fuel code. you might run the car by your local mechanic or autozone, advance auto, pepboys etc, they will normally pull the code for you for free and let you know what the outcome is. good luck any other questions just let me know i'll try to help.

89 cutlass cierra crank but wont start when wet out unless gas pedal is pushed


This should be a drive by wire vehicle meaning it has a cable for the throttle body. First thing would be to see if any error codes can be pulled up (most parts stores will do that for free.) Drive by wire versus the late model that use electronic control for the idle have a IAC or idle air control which when first started controls the idle air intake--all air is run by it to idle the vehicle when cold--

Usual symptoms are rather high idle when cold engine or even idle and RPM jumping up and down and stalling when cold.

Another way if idle does drop when cold is tapping the gas--engine will still run until hot. Means not usually a fuel pump issue.

You could also have if the vehicle is fuel injected a dirty Mass air flow sensor, a throttle position sensor, etc.

These can be if the vehicle has them cleaned using a special zero residue spray cleaner.

First have it scanned to see what if any errors it shows--the computer.

1994 olds cutlass cierra sedan with 125,000 mileage, service engine soon light came on, what's wrong?


Scan the computer for trouble codes. Use an OBD 1 scanner or code reader. The light having come on means there is a stored code or codes to direct you or a technician to the problem sensor or circuit.

Where is the gm code scanner connection on 1995 Olds Cutlass Ceria v6 3.1l? Where is the check engine light? Is it called service engine soon light. The car is running hot between 3rd mark and red. I think...


One fan may be faulty. There are also sensors for the fan(s) in the engine block that is seperate from both the gauge and engine controls.

Nornally one fan is operated from one relay as well. They should be on the firewall, just follow the wiring harness.

Hi I have a 1991 Olds Cutlass Supreme, with a 3.1 liter engine. My problem is when the car warms at stops it runs rough. Sometimes shuts off. Sometimes when crusing at speeds 30-50 the car sort of jerks...


My 3.4 liter 91 Cutlass Supreme has similar problem when warm the engine misses (car jerks). But its fine at idle and without any accelerator pressure. The SERVICE ENGINE light also comes on intermittantly. I am going to test the ignition coils.
