Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

93 Cutlass Ciera won't shift out of overdrive

My 93 Cutlass will not shift out of overdrive. Runs great until it gets to overdrive and it seems to drop the RPMs lower than they need to be. Once it needs to shift down to climb a hill or slope it makes the car shake bad as it is trying to get out of overdrive, almost like it is stuttering between a lower gear and overdrive. To make it stop you either have to put the gas pedal all the way to the floor or just left off completely. Its has an automatic transmission with a little over 240,000 miles on it. Want to do everything possible to fix it before I go ahead and rebuild the transmission.

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.

Transmission problem on 95 cutlass ciera


Overdrive has two important factors involving when and if it turns on besides being in the proper gear shift position. One is tthe car has to FIRST reach operating temps before it will engage the TCC ( torque converter clutch ). That could involve a faulty thermostat, or short distance drives, Second important factor WILL DISENGAGE WHEN STEPPING ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. A brake switch could be misadjusted , and without you stepping on the brake, the computer thinks you are and wont engage TCC. Hope this helps.

Car wont idle, dies and shifts eratically


Hello;
It definetly sounds like a vacuum leak problem. The vacuum hoses are routed to perform various functions for the engine and transmission. They can be very difficult to track down. They are small diameter black hoses and start at the intake manifold (the source) and go to their respective locations.
They could be cracked, oil soaked, loose fitting, or disconnected to name a few problems to look for. Take it to a mechanic if you do not feel comfortable replacing the hoses.
Thanks;
