SOURCE: blower motor removal 1993 olds ciera 3.3

i worked for olds when that car was new. had alot of those motors go bad. you need to remove the p/s pump to do it by yourself-BUT you can remove the engine struts(mounts) and have a buddy(you trust) start the car and out it into reverse, now have him give it some gas so the engine rocks forward so you can remove/replace the motor/fan assy. - like that?
good luck

SOURCE: rattling noise during engine start up.. 2005 mitz galant 2.4l

Probably a heat shield. Often time the screws that hold the shields in place rust away causing the shield to rattle. After the exhaust heats up, the pipes and shield expand causing the shield to stop rattling until it cools down again later when the car has been sitting for a while. Usually you'll find shields under or around the catalytic converter and around the exhaust pipe nearest to the engine. Most folks would probably recommend you remove the shield and be done with it. That's your call. Just remember though, the shields are there for a reason. In particular, the shield under the catalytic converter is there to prevent the possibility of starting tall grass on fire in the event you had to pull off the road for example to fix a flat tire or something along those lines. It might be unlikely, but its definitely been known to happen. Let us know how it goes. Thanks.

I have a 1993 olds cutless ciera and when i come to a stop it wants to cut off i put it nutrual and come to a stop and give it a little gas and it will go again or i put it into drive and it cuts off


It depends on how fast you are going when you come to a stop.
If you are above 45 mph it could be the torque converter not releasing. If you are under 40mph it could be a faulty idle air control valve or a dirty throttle body. The computer controls idle speed by how much air enters the throttle body thru the control valve.

MY 91" TOWN CAR SIGNATURE HAS BEEN MAKING A LOUD


hi this sounds like to me you might have a loose baffel in the box, the reason why the sound dissapates when you get to a certain speed is because the baffel is pushed up or down due to the pressure when you slow down the pressure then releases the baffel and it starts rattling again, you might also have a broken clamp on your exhaust or even a missing rubber bush check these out first...good luck

Dies after warms up can't idle


I would check the idle air control valve, this is what controls the idle, when your foot is not on the throttle.

Engine Rattling


Try checking the heat shield on your exhaust system. You should have one over the manifold and one over your cat converter under the car.

High idleing problem


try and replace (or even just clean off) the idle air control motor it builds up with carbon often its located on the throttle body..u can clean it with carb cleaner or even brake parts cleaner it can be expensive to replace at parts stores but maybe a junkyard one will work too
