Check the egr valve,make sure it is not sticking,and do a major tune up,this will help in burning the rich mixture at cold idle.

Does a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera SL 3.3ltr 6 cyl have a timing in the e this car seems to drag when I hit the gas to accelerate quickly. Cutlass Ciera SL 3.3ltr


Say what? a timing in the e?? It has a timing chain, it has computer controlled timing advance, not adjustable. Um...

Such hesitation could be from old, worn spark plugs, old, worn plug wires, a dirty air filter, a dirty fuel filter. (Is your check engine light on when running? If so, look for the trouble codes.) Could be a sensor too, I think maybe the mass air flow sensor should be checked. Another sensor for this could be the throttle position sensor. If everything checks out so far, you should have the fuel pressure tested and checked. Just possibly the fuel pump needs changing. Testing the pressure will tell you.
All I can think of so far, enough to keep you busy checking?

I have a 96 Old Ciera, feels like it's bucking/surging. More like hesitation while idling or driving. Has stalled a few times at stop signs, etc. Mechanic hooked up to computer, says bad egr and oxygen...


Had a similar problem that also caused the power brakes not to function. I believe there was a problem in the vacum fittings that was causing it to lose power but I am clearly not an expert.

I have a 350 cu. inch chevy engine. I just did a compression test on all cylinders and found cylinders 1,2,7,8 have 140. while cylinder 3 has 135 cyl 5 has 130 cyl 4,6 has 125. there is no hesitation on...


Try shooting oil into 4 and 6, then retake compression test. If they come up you have worn rings, if not you could have a slight leak around the valves. or a slight leak in the head gasket between those two cylinders.
