Question about Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

I have a 1990 Olds Cutlass Ciera and need to adjust the idle it idles real slow and the service engine soon light comes on after sitting for a couple of minutes at a traffic light or in traffic. If I push on the gas pedal slightly, the light goes out. How do I adjust the idle I can't seem to find an adjusting screw.

    Where is this located, sorry it's been a long time since I worked on a vehicle. Last time I had to worry about adjusting the idle I had a carburetor, with a screw adjustment LOL.

Check idle air control valve on throttle body. A quick fix to get you going should be just unplug and remove spray w/ cleaner to get carbon off spring and cone shaft, reinstall.

    It is located at the side of the throttle body. It should have two
    screws holding it in place. Its either black or silver. You can remove
    it and try cleaning the carbon off of it. Also try cleaning the inside
    of your throttle body with break clean or carb cleaner.

Hello;
Most likely cause is a broken valve spring on one of the intake valves. Seat pressure is light enough to idle smooth but on acceleration the dynamics increase the pressures and the spring can not keep up. Hangs the valve open breifly and you get a backfire through the TBI.
Hope this helps.
Thanks;
