Idels high shifts hard and that is like every other time started put in new ecm and still have the issue


Your describing a vacume leak or a mis adjusted throttle body. Does it ever idel down? What engine is in it Desiel? If it's gas the AIS motor might be sticking or is bad. Does it run and is the check engine light on? are all the fluilds correct level? coolant level low can make the coolant senser lie about the temperture of the motor to the ecm and it'll command a high idel. Once the idel motor goes as high as it can it might be shicking and you can remove it and wash it off with carb spray and while it's out with the wire connected turn the key on and off with it in your hand and spray it with cleaner till it moves smoothly. With it retracted install it and try again, any vacume leak will make it idel fast. The trans mission will shift hard if the vacume line to it is off and it's on the back of the intake manifold and it goes to a modulater on the side of the trans. it can be off there too.

1995 cutlass supreme. There are two cooling fans.


it will come on but only when the engine is very hot and the first fan cant cool it down that fast,, its turned on by a difrent heat censor so the engine needs to be realy hot to set the second fan running and it may even then only run for 30 seconds till the engine temp drops off,,, as long as the car is running in the normal heat range dont worry about it,,, if its cooking way up in the red,,,,,now worry about it,,fast too,,

Hard to start in morning


if it is carburated you need to adjust the fast idel and the choke if it is fuel injected try checking the temp on the coolant temp sensor with a scanner the temp might be reading wrong if it is differant than ambiant temp in the morning change sensor

Wont idel when warmed up


seems to me there may be a problem with the transmission, because you say it runs fine in neutral and dies when you put it in gear!!!
only logical thing if everything else you mentioned has been ruled out!!!
