Transmission probelm 94 Cutlass Ciera

Hi got a slight problem with my Oldsmobile. when i get to above 85km/h and cruise the car shifts into 4th and a shaking occurs that is obviously not healthy. so when i'm driving i stay below 85 but when i have to go on the highway if i keep accelerating and decelerating it stays in 3rd and no problem except for milage, usually avoid that one. just wondering what it is and if theres a hopefully cheap way to fix it. don't really have the cash.

Good day, well you have a tricky problem and a very cheap solution to handle it. my advice is try to get your automatic transmission fluid checked. if its smells like fried then you should change the fluid and you will have a smooth one. in fact it will prolonged your transmission life. dont forget to replace the filter too. have a nice day

    good day... so if the fluid seems to be fine, you may need to replace the transmission converter. that what makes the shaking on 4th. will surely help

Go to NAPA auto parts store,cause I know they have this product,Lube Guard.It is a great additive,just add this to the transmission,it will un stick valves in the valve body,and lock up converter solenoids,it stops transmission shutters also.It treats the metal in the transmission.

The cruise control in my 92 olds ciera quit working. Could it be a fuse problem and if so, how do I find out which fuse?


Its in the glovebox. Open the fuse door and its towards the bottom, its a 10A fuse and it says cruise right above/below the fuse. Do you have a remote starter in the car?

Hello. I have a 1988 oldsmobile cutlass ciera 3.8L V6. The problem I have is that the car wont shift. i was told it might be the transmission vacuum. i am not sure where that is located. any suggestions.


The vac line to the transmission controls the pressure. It will cause rough shifts it isn't hooked up. You need to check the Throttle Valve cable from the transmission to the throttle body. Can you elaborate on your transmission problem?
