What makes the fuel pump not kick on on a 92 Oldsmobile Cutlass

There is a red wire close to the battery in the front. It's not connected to anything. Apply positive voltage and that will run your pump for testing purposes.

I have a 1994 Olds Cutlass Supreme overheating

If it's the water pump, you should be able to see it dripping just behind the pulley. The seal on the water pump is usually what goes. If there is antifreeze drips all over the front of the engine, and it drips a bit after you shut it off, it likely is the water pump.
If it runs poorly when you first start it in the morning, however, you could still have a head gasket problem. If that is the case, you will see a lot of white exhaust, which is the cylinder blowing the antifreeze out. One thing you can do is run it with the rad cap off, and see if it continues to bubble. If it does, then your head gasket is leaking. I am assuming it is a V6, so keep in mind that you have 2 head gaskets. The other oine could be gone now if it wasn't replaced.

CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or inPuddles on the ground.

  5. Remove the alternator and side bracket.
  6. Disconnect the water pump hoses.
  7. Unfasten the water pump retaining bolts, then remove the water pump from the vehicle. Remove and discard the gasket. Thoroughly clean all gasket mating surfaces.

To install:
  1. Position a new water pump gasket, then install the water pump. Tighten the attaching bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  2. Install the water pump pulley and secure with the retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).
