Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

Can't get 1992 Cutlass Siera to start,it tries to start,only for a second,and kind of backfires. Already replaced coil packs,plug wires, oxygen sensor,still does the same thing.I believe the engine has very breifly tried to start without the drive belt on,would this throw the engine timing out?If so,how hard is is to get it back in time?

The mechanic should check on the ignition system first . Check the ignition switch, the ignition coil , the spark plug , the spark plug cable , the distributor assembly and the wires and the fuses.Check if there are worn out or destroyed then replace it. And then set the distributor timing mark and the firing order of the spark plug which is 1,3,4,2.These 1,3,4,2 are the number of the spark plug connecting to the distributor assembly.Then try to start the engine .The cause of the engine back fire is ignition timing not in order.

Sounds like a weak fuel pump check your fuel pressure.It should be 40-47 psi with key on engine off and with key on engine running it should be 30-44 psi if its not within specs replace fuel pump.

Ignition coil is bad I think. How do I change them


There are 2 screws per coil.Just remove the plug wire and if they are not marked make sure and mark them so you install them back in the correct order or you will have backfiring problems.If they are the factory wires they should all be numbered already.There are 3 coils.Take them off one at a time.What problems are you having that you suspect a coil?If replacing the coils does not help then let me know and I`ll be glad to help out.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Trying to find the engine control module for 1991 olds cutlass siera sl


The ECM is located right behind the glove box. First remove the negative (-) battery cable. Then remove the front of your glove box, just a few small screws. The interior of the glove box is cardboard and will pull out after removal of screws. Then unplug the 3 electrical plugs and let them hang out of the way. Now, remove the bolts on the side of the bracket holding the ECM IN.
