SOURCE: 1993 olds achieva-gears won't shift-what sensors on transmission

Had this problem when I rebuilt my engine. Turns out, that I had plugged back in a sensor that was previously unplugged. There is a known manufacturer's defect on some Achievas where a sensor on the transmission was mounted upside-down. Symptoms caused by this are primarily the car staying in gear (and thus stalling) when stopped, and failing to downshift while slowing down. Just unplug this pesky sensor, located roughly underneath and to the battery side of the throttle body. Be careful, though, because I don't know if running long term in this configuration will lead to transmission damage (although my transmission doesn't show any signs of troubles now that the thing is disconnected.)

SOURCE: where is the mass air sensor on a 1992 olds

Hi jeremyj7803, the tech manual doesn't show a MAF sensor for your engine. Your engine uses a MAP sensor seen in the image below. However MAF sensors are typically located at the intake manifold and the air intake duct connects to them. Hope this helps. :)

There is a cable that goes from your throttle body to the transmission.This is called the throttle valve adjuster cable.It has either come out of adjustment or is bad.You need to go to someone that knows how to adjust this and your problem should go away.There is a special adjustment procedure so you can`t just move it to where ever you want.This controls when you vehicle will up shift or down shift depending on the input from the gas pedal.So have someone that knows transmissions help you or take it to a reputable shop and get it fixed.It is not that big of a job.Hope this helps.Good luck.

do not touch the column. the cable is attached to the bottom of the shift lever and on the trans. find out which end is bad and go from there. most likely you will need to replace the cable but ck both ends first.

93 oldsmobile quad 4 2.3 one piston is not working wet spark plug


If you have a stethoscope, listen to the injector while the vehicle is running, it could be stuck open. If you hear it pulsing the same as the rest of the injectors, then unplug it, let the engine run so it can get all of the unburned fuel out of cylinder (you said the plug was wet), take the plug and coil from cylinder number three, install them in cylinder # 4, put the coil/plug from 4 into 3, reconnect the injector, and see if the problem moves to cylinder three. Next if the problem does not move to cylinder 3, then you have an issue with either the wiring to the connector at cylinder # 4, or you have a mechanical failure. Remove the valve cover, check the valve springs on # 4. make sure they look the same as all others. If so, turn the crank and further inspect them. If they are mangled, remove the head. It needs to be repaired, and check the piston for damage. You could also do a compression check to rule this out.
