Question about Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
The engine usually has been running for a while then it could quit while it is running but more so after you shut it off. then it wont start until it cools off again. Here is what have been replaced: 1. coil pack 2. electronic ignition unit with properly applied heat sink grease on a good flat surface. 3. new fuel filter an fuel pump 4.new map sensor 5. new crankcase sensor 6. new alternator(was making a noise when ignition on) thought it was feeding back into the electronics. also was running real hot. 7. new coolant sensor. what I have noticed is the cooling fan works when the temperature rises too high and shuts off as it should, but also I have reason to believe it might not be working sometimes when it should. This model does not have a cam sensor according to the service book diagram, or even a crank sensor behind the harmonic balancer. I am looking for the shut off relay now. It acts just like one that was tripped. I know! I had a ford escort and since I live on a dirt road a rock popped up under the car and thumped the car and it quit. It shut off the shut off switch. Anyhow there is plenty of fuel pressure it was as that was tested by a service facility after it quit. I was there to verify. Any ideas how I can fix this car?
When the failure occurs what do you lose, Fuel or Spark? A few ideas come to mind, the distributor, oil sending unit, or a fault at or inside the fuse-box. Your description is very detailed and it looks like you have invested some time into this repair. Hang in there, you a narrowing down your search with each inspection and repair. Write back anytime, good luck.
