Try maybe testing the starter solenoid, battery (bad cell) or alternator.
I would check your battery cables before I do anything.
How does it run going down the road? Do any of your lights ever dim?

90' cutlass ciera 4 cylinder won't turn over


Could be a bad starter. Try tapping on it with a large screwdriver or hammer, then try starting. If it starts that time, bad starter.
If you know how to jump the starter solenoid to the starter motor, you could check starter operation. On the solenoid is a purple wire. Use a small screwdriver (key off, car in park) and bridge that post with the purple wire to the large battery terminal on the starter. If starter is good, it will start cranking the engine. If you just get another click, the starter is bad, assuming the battery cable connections are clean and tight.

Cutlass ciera wont start


Does the starter spin the motor at normal cranking speed? If there seems too much friction, try turning the engine over by hand to check if the engine turns freely. Put a socket and wrench on the center crankshaft pulley bolt and turn clockwise. If you cannot turn the crankshaft with a wrench easily, then the starter can't either. Turn the crank all the way around to check for something preventing cranking.
Is the battery still enough power to crank at normal speed? If it's already too low, recharge it, and try again.

Starter good but still won't crank,


remove the starter and check the condition of the ring gear and pinion teeth. Any burrs on either makes it hard for the pinion to engage the fly wheel a split second before the armature starts to spin.

95 oldsmobile cutlass cierra v6 ... wont turn over


One Click usually indicates a bad starter. Since the vehicle overheated I would try this first. With the key off and the battery disconnected try turning the engine over by hand. If you can't get the engine to turn by hand than you have bigger problems probably associated with the overheating. If you can turn it over by hand than you need to check the starter. Make sure the small wire on the starter has power anytime the key is in the crank position. Make sure the large wire has power all the time. If both of those are good than you can also try tapping on the starter, key word tapping, with a hammer while a helper holds the key in the crank position. BE PREPAIRED FOR THE STARTER TO ENGAGE AND START THE ENGINE! If the starter works after tapping than replace it. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them.

What to do when starter starts clicking


If the battery is good and fully charged then it may be time to replace the starter.
At times it does not pay to just replace the solenoid and not the starter motor. Its more work and you're putting a new part on a worn part.

But you may want to have the battery tested. Fully charged is 12.6. Also need to check the cranking amps with a load tester. A weak batter can kill a starter.

I was driving and the car cut off. It won't start but it cranks and won't turn over.It is a 1995 Olds Cutlass Ciera SL, 6 Cylinder.


your terminology is wrong.if it cranks its turning over what you mean is it won`t start(fire up) as you said at the beginning.anyways it sounds like you could have a fuel pump problem that stop working.this happens alot.you should check for spark at the plugs to make sure its not an ignition problem.did you notice a check engine light on when it was running.if so there will be a code in the ecm and may be the cause of your problem.

1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera SL 2.2 head bolts torque and sequence


you have long bolts and short bolts, long bolts go in positions 1,4,5,8,9 - short bolts remaining positions, all long bolts go in back of engine, toward fire wall or front of dash, those are positions starting at passenger side to drivers side, 8,4,1,5,9, so 1 is in the center position, 9 on drivers side. short bolts in front, positions passenger side 7, 3, 2, 6,10, stud is in position 10. Tighten bolts in sequence, starting at 1, long bolts get 32Nm, short bolts get 29Nm, next pass torque all to 58NM, than final pass add an angle of 100 degrees, little more than 1/4 turn with wrench. Bolts should have 11.9 on head, the tightening specification is called a torque plus angle to yield, that is why in your gasket kit is tells you to replace the bolts, it is recommended. I know, because I am the GM Manager for fastening engineering. Hope this helps
