1988 Oldsmobile cutlass cierra 2.8 v6 drove it then died when I hit the gas at 50mph. Turns over but won't start has compression has spark. Just won't fire up and run

Have you checked compression on more than one cyclinder? I once broke a camshaft on an old truck and it died instantly. Things looked normal at two of the cylinders but not on the others.

How to replace fuel injectors on a 1988 olds cutlass ciera v6

There is a You Tube Video you can watch

I would mail them away for testing & ultra-sonic

Not likely the injectors are causing the dieing

Check for a worn timing chain & vacuum leaks

I do not have a carb its efi i have a 1988 olds cuuttlass ciera it is a it was runing good but now its running bad it dies ans its popes

these cars are known for bad wiring and failing sensors and controls. Unless you plan on pulling your hair out changing parts and chasing wires that may be bad or not, consider having a certified GM mechanic work on the car. Especially if it's a v6, this is not a good DIY car to learn on.

Remove and clean IAC ( idle air control) motor with throttle body cleaner, especially pintle (pointed part at end) and port it came out of. If it runs better for a while, but starts to act up again, replace it.

idl air control (IAC),may be bad,also,check the EGR valve,and all vacuum lines going and coming from the throttle body. yu can test the EGR,just try pushing the diaphram by hand from beneath. if you can move it easily its good,if its hard,or doesnt move,ot needs repaced. also a pcv valve and air filter are good ideas,considering you have replaced 80% of the emission system already.
