1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera S 6 Cyl 3300 Speed Problem

I just changed the Spark plugs, wires, and the fuel filter on my 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera S and when the car accelerates to around 75-80 mph the check engine light comes on and the car won't accelerate past 70 (ie. it will get to 75-80 mph and starts to have problems so it slows down to around 65-70 mph and won't go past that even if I give it more gas). I stopped the car and let it run idle to listen to it and I heard a loud pop noise coming from around the coil packs. When I put my ear close to the coil packs I think I hear the noise coming from somwhere near the coil packs but not the coil packs themselves. It might be the top coil pack but I'm not 100%. Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.

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?

Car forces me to slow down


I doubt it is a speed sensor. It is in the transmission near the passenger side cv axle. Have you scanned it for codes? You can do it with a paperclip.
