1- check for codes with scanner to see why check light coming on. 2 unbolt exhaust before caterlic convertor. Run car to see if still does it.If it does not the caterlic converter is the problem.the car temp should not go over 220 degrees. if car is getting to hot it will shut off,check cooling system and cooling fans to make sure they are comming on. Also if water is flowing through thermastat.Map sensor when gets hot could cut out. some places to look. doug

It is located at the back of the engine near the will have to pull the engine forward to gain excess,Just disconnect the motor mount at the front of the engine and use some straps to bring it forward so that you will have room to reach it.I just replace the one i had on my 1990 olds cutlass supreme just last week.
Good Luck.

My Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera with the 2.5 will not stay running

What you should do when it stalls is check to see if your loosing spark at the plugs.If you are then you probably have a bad ignition module.It is located in the rear of the motor.The ignition coils are mounted on it.One other possibility is the pcm.It is located under the dash on the passengers side.You can get a used one at most salvage yards.You will need to get the number from the old pcm.You will also have to remove the old prom from the old pcm and install it in the one you get for replacement.Hope this helps.Good luck.

1991 Olds Cutlass Engine stalls and hesitates when pressing on the peddle. Sometimes will not crankover I'm thinkinking maf or egr First (not sure if that year has egr)

I might be able to help you on this. I will you two options
1.Sounds like your fuel mixture is too lean or breather pipes from inlet manifold are leaking or idle sensor valve faulty.
2. check your clutch sensor. It might be disconnected. this also leads to engine stalling problem

My 1993 cutlas supreme stalls randomly while idling or driving , but restart right away

You will need to change the crank position sensor first and see if it corrects the problem. It is located behind the engine near the firewall. It's a bit tricky to get to it, you would need to rotate the engine forward then look under the exhaust manifold and under the cylinder closest to the drivers side. Use a 10 mm deep socket to loosen bolt. After replacement and it is still stalling then you will need to replace the ECM (vehicle computer). If it turns out to be the computer, go to your local junkyard to get an inexpensive replacement Click on the link below to view the CPS, it is around $22,model:Cutlass+Supreme,year:1993,brand:Delphi,part:Crank+Position+Sensor)&ptc=S1171391678W45d204bec356b&ptid=ptc45891f6tnywz&id=Olqtv7cphi

Will a faulty E.G.R.valve on a 1988 Olds.Cut.Sup.FWD cause a hot engine to stall when stopping at corners?

well it will casue it to stall if the egr is stuck open and you stop at a light or stop sign,due to it beinge stuck open the open egr valve acts like a vacum leak,,,,ive also seen bad fuel pumps and fule filter to cause a stall while hot and cornering
