If you have a V-6, your fuel pressure should be 40 to 45 lbs. If you have'nt done it already, replace the fuel filter and try again. Make sure the pressure does not leak down to near 0 lbs, the pump should hold near the pressure it produces.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

My 93 cutlass ciera c stalls as if out of gas after about 5 min it starts


Sounds like fuel pump may be going out. Check fuel pressure to see if it is within specifications and steady pressure. Next time car stalls, lightly bang on the fuel tank with a rubber mallet or screwdriver handle about 10 times, then try to restart the car. If fuel pump is going out, this helps "free it up" and the car will start. It will only last a short while though and stall again.

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 oldsmobile cutlass ciera check engine light on then stalled.


Wow! thats verry low miles for an 88. Check the fuel pressure at the injector. If the pressure is low the filter could be clogged or the pump is not putting out enough pressure. Replace both if the pressure is not up to par. also check the fuel relays.

90 cutllass ciera 3.3 ltr


Hello;
Check your fuel pressure regulator. Make sure you have a good vacuum to it and it is not leaking. 48 psi is a bit much and once it warms up will cause the vehicle to stumble and stall. Code 12 is a normal system.
Hope this helps.
Thanks;

Ser.eng.soon flashes code 34 MAP sensor


A code 34 calls attention to the MAF sensor, not a MAP sensor. Try changing that out, first. You might also be having problems with your ignition control module.
