Question about Cars & Trucks
Well you can start with the plugs and wires as a routine maintenance job. You may find a bad injector or something else in the end.
Code 48 means the computer denoted a cylinder miss, but not which cylinder. That ability did not come along until after 1994.

Your Cutlass is either the 3.1 V6 or the 3400 Dual Overhead 24 valve V6...each motor is clearly marked on top of the engine plenum. If you have not changed the plugs yet...I recomend you do that at the same time...you can purchase inexpensive replacement wires with a limited lifetime warranty...be sure to compare. No special tools needed to switch out the plug wires...I highly recomend using plug wire boot lube grease to assure good clean water proof contact...also helps ease od service later as needed. The lube is only a couple of bucks...Be sure to ask the parts person the ignition firing order...this will help to confirm proper installation...Remove only one wire at a time...this insures you maintain the current firing order...remove and replace only ONE wire at a time...disconnect from the plug, then trace to the coil pack, and disconnect...replace with similar length wire using lube grease on both end connections...Plug wires and plugs should be replaced on your Cutlass OBD I motor by 100,000 miles...they can wear out and leak or misfire prior to that...Your motor is also sensitive to a clean Idle Air Control valve...about $35. or try to clean the old one and mounting hole with injector spray cleaner and wipe out...Also check for any vacumn leaks while changing wires...the old rubber lines and connections crack and leak with age...The Cutlass is usally a reliable long term car...Good luck with yours. Hope this helps.

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?

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for your advice and time!"
reset the ec module by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. If that does not work have autozone do a free scan and ask them to reset the codes.
