Question about Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
Do a cylinder leak down test, to check for valves not sealing
If they are good, I would say your timing chain & gears are worn
& need to be replaced.
Everyone replaces parts for no reason, because nothing is visually
looked at, or anything at all tested, to even see if any parts are necessary.
Everyone lives in the 1960\'s, but fails to work like we were still there
& it bits you
Everyone skips the basics of the mechanical
condition of the engine
If it has a distributor, pull the cap off & put the motor at TDC
& I bet the Rotor doesn\'t line up where it should because the
top timing gear is worn & the timing is retarded
Need correct fuel pressure & can\'t have a clogged exhaust

I just had this fixed on my suby today. The cause is that the spark plugs, go through the valve covers on the 2.5 l .When the o rings in the cover go, the result is oil in the spark plugs. The cost of the repair in Canada was about $500 including diagnostics as well as new plugs and wires About 1.5 hours labor and new seals and gaskets. It now runs like new. This is a common problem for this subaru engine as well as for the dodge neon.

under the intake manifold at the firewall, there is a vacuum elbow that deteriorates, listen back there for a hissing noise...... access is very easy from under vehicle......good luck

The fuel filter is part of the fuel pump unit (all in one) in the tank, fuel pressure is 49 psi, check the fuel pressure, check plug wires (ohm them), also take the coil to Auto zone and they will test it for free, I have run into all of these potental problems.
