Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
My father in law is 80 and still working on cars and lawnmowers, he says it ran all winter without any problems, around May he started having issues with it dieing, he took it to a shop, mechanic said he needed to flush radiator,replace water pump and thermostat. he had it done and drove it home and it died. he has replaced fuel relay and ignition module. he seems to think when the weather started getting hotter, the car started having problems, im not sure. it runs great sometimes and other times it dies, you never know. anyway he is on fixed income and cant afford to keep taking it places or buying parts and not getting it fixed
First thing to do is find out what is missing when it dies, spark and plugs or fuel at the injector.
The next time it dies out, have him pull a spark plug wire off, crank the engine over and see if the ignition system makes a nice snapping spark. If that is good, you will want to get a fuel gauge and install it and test the fuel pressure, should be around 30 psi. Once you figure out which one it is we can go from there.
