SOURCE: Olds 88 tranny fit a Cutlass?

As long as the tags on the trans have the same numbers yes, these transmisssions are electroniclly controlled and there are internal differences even though they may bolt up, there are ID tags on all transmissions sold by GM and installed on the production line.

Check the fuel pressure,also change the fuel filter.check the crankshaft sensor,or replace.It sounds more like the tps sensor(throttle position sensor).It is mounted in line with the throttle axle,on the throttle horn.Of course .with out being there and checking I am just guessing.But map sensor or mass air flow sensor could also cause this.Have you checked the air filter?This will cause the problem,if it is stopped up restricting air flow to engine and mass air flow.,map sensor,and vacuums needed to run the car.If I can help,let me know.

If the engine won't start, perform a spark test as described earlier. This will narrow the problem area down considerably. If no spark occurs, check for the presence of normal battery voltage at the battery terminal (BAT) in the distributor cap. The ignition switch must be in the on position for this test. Either a voltmeter or a test light may be used for this test. Connect the test light wire to ground and the probe end at the BAT terminal at the distributor. If the light comes on, you have voltage to the distributor. If the light fails to come on, this indicates an open circuit in the ignition primary wiring leading to the distributor. In this case, you will have to check wiring continuity back to the ignition switch using a test light. If there is battery voltage at the BAT terminal, but no spark at the plugs, then the problem lies within the distributor assembly.
If the trouble has been narrowed down to the units within the distributor, the following tests can help pinpoint the defective component. An ohmmeter with both high and low ranges should be used. These tests are made with the cap assembly removed. and the battery wire disconnected. If a tachometer is connected to the TACH terminal, disconnect it before making these tests.

  1. Connect a ohmmeter between the TACH and BAT terminals in the distributor cap. The primary coil resistance should be less than 1 ohms.
  2. To check the coil secondary resistance, connect an ohmmeter between the rotor button and the BAT terminal. Note the reading. Connect the ohmmeter between the rotor button and the TACH terminal. Note the reading. The resistance in both cases should be between 6,000 and 30,000 ohms. Be sure to test between the rotor button and both the BAT and TACH terminals.
  3. Replace the coil only if the readings in Step 1 and Step 2 are infinite.

1991 olds location fuse for memory power/no back up power radio & ac control

now its not a 1988 but a 1091 olds, and not a Dakota.
im totally gobsmacked. what is it, below is Dakota answer
if it is an Olds what model car , what engine?

ok , the posts come out of order, i answered your first post
with a question, and he it is the memory fuse.
what engine?
2.2 L (134 cu in) K I4
2.5 L (150 cu in) K I4
2.5 L (150 cu in) AMC I4
3.9 L (238 cu in) LA/Magnum V6
5.2 L (318 cu in) LA/Magnum V8

the 2.5 ECU memory pin as pin A41 red wire
and goes to the battery via the main FUSE LINK.
i looked at the schematic for the other engine, same link.......
id bet dollars to donuts its not bad.
there are 3 links, one for Altenator, (is it dead) one for A/C and heater blower, is it dead, and one to drive the input to the ignition swich
the ignition goes dead, if that red wire is dead.
so is A41, not at 12v at all times.

my guess, is you posted to Dodge forum ,why do that?

Were is the cam sensor

Open the hood for access to the engine compartment. Locate the front of the engine facing toward the passenger side of the Olds 88. Locate the pulleys along the front of the engine. Look for the camshaft pulley, which is the main pulley and is also the largest pulley of all the pulleys in the engine.3 Find the water pump pulley directly above the camshaft. The camshaft sensor is located between the two pulleys. The sensor is round with a wiring harness sticking out of the end.
