Not ever close this thing must have been running so bad .
You need to replace it all wires cap plugs rotor if you expect to relay on the vehicle at all .

Have to buy a new one... Non repairable. I would recommend replacing the rotor button as well if you are changing the cap

    Is this something I could do myself or only a mechanic could do this?

    You could do it yourself if you are mechanically inclined. Just pay attention to where all the wires go on the cap and put them back in the same order

SOURCE: timing marks for 3.4 v6 1995 olds cutlass supreme

It doesn't have any marks. Make your own before you remove the belt. If the belt was broke or you already removed the belt then you will have to remove the valve covers and install specialty tools into the ends of the camshafts to line everything up correctly.

SOURCE: change the distributor cap and rotor now car wont start

We did the same thing with ours. We have a 1985 Cutlass Supreme that we put a 350 Camaro engine in it. At first it would not start for anything we eventually had to take it to a mechanic and he said it was the timing and he fixed it. Now it runs great!
But yeah it is almost impossible to get chevy engine in a oldmobile if you are unsure of what you are doing.

Pull the distributor make sure plug #1 is at top dead center on the power stroke and set distributor back in making sure the coil is on plug 1 wire . Watch out cause it can be set 180 degrees off if the plug isn't on the right stroke .

Where is the fuel pump located on my 1985 cutlass supreme 3.8 v6 pretty sure i need to replace. car wouldn't start.. tapped on gas tank underneath while ignition and it started up.. i'm guessin its in...


Welcome to Fixya

The fuel pump is located on the passenger side of the engine down low, you will see a line going into it and a line going out of it to the carb and 2 bolts hold it to the engine. Thank you for using Fixya!

Changed distributor cap now car will not crank


You should check to make sure that the rotor button is in place. Also check the coil wire and the fire orderr to make sure that no wires are crossed. These are pretty much the only reasons why your car won't crank with the distributor cap change.

Change the distributor cap and rotor now car wont start


you may have the firing order wrong
look on the intake manifold you should see the firing order
it should be 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
on each side of the intake there are number 1-3-5-7 on one side and 2-4-6-8 on the other side
