My 1991 cutlass cierra oldsmobile is not firing. i replaced the fuel filter fuel pump and the crank shaft sensor. After that it did start up now it is doing the same thing as before just turning over but...


Pull a spark plug wire and put a screw driver in the boot and lay it next to something steel on the engine, do you have a spark?

If so pull a spark plug and see if it is wet, like water wet. Are you low on coolant or loosing it?

These engines have a intake fail issue, the upper intake will not can, but will leak, when it dose it sends coolant down the intake and wets the spark plugs. Crank the engine over a few times before doing this.

The best way to know for sure is to remove the Throttle Body and look inside the intake with a flashlight.

You may be able to get away with removing the screen from the Throttle body with snap ring pliers and opening the butterfly and looking in, but that mesh is very hard to remove and install.

Good luck

Do I need to remove the tensioner to remove the alternator on a '92 cutlass cierra? If so what size is the bolt that attaches it?

No, you just need to loosen the belt and take it off the alternator. Then the two bolts that mount it and unclip the plug and unbolt the other wire.

Removing spark plug wires on 92 cutlass cierra s

Since it is a 1882 the plastic is old and brittle so expect it to break in pieces. Just pry the seams away from one another after the engine is hot. That may keep it from rteaking

92 olds ciera won't start

Johnny, It's probably the coil pack. If you follow the spark plug wires backwards from the plugs it will lead you to the part(s). There may be more than one. Check with the local autoparts place to see if they can test it for you. If not I would try a Junk yard first, incase that isn't the problem.
