1987 Cutlass Supreme

Changed the fuel filter after car wouldnt start. The car is still not starting but sounds like it wants to. Not sure what else to do. Was told to change out the external fuel filter (if there is one) but not sure where it is. Even sprayed the choke but made no difference.

Check oil first, Low oil sensor will shut down if more than a quart low. Change fuel filter, could be fuel starvation, change the air filter. stopped up air filter will put MAF sensor out of range. PERFORM OBDII SCAN SOON.

1987 Cutlass Supreme not turning on. Think fuel system?


Fuel Filter REPLACEMENT Gasoline Engines The fuel filter is located behind the fuel inlet connection on the carburetor. On 1976–87 vehicles fuel filters incorporate a check valve and are not interchangeable with earlier years. Replace the fuel filter every 15,000 miles (24,135 km), or sooner if engine flooding is a problem. Fig. 1: Hold the large fuel inlet nut on the carburetor while using a flare wrench to loosen the line connection 86681247.jpg
  1. Using an open–end wrench (preferably a line or flare nut wrench), loosen the fuel line connection from the larger fuel filter nut. You will have to hold the other nut with a wrench to keep it from turning. Most of the time these units are quite difficult to remove. It is a good idea to apply a lot of penetrating oil to the threads and then tap the nut lightly.
  2. Once you have the fuel line disconnected from the carburetor, remove the larger nut from the carburetor with a box–end wrench or socket.
  3. Remove the filter element and spring from the carburetor.
  4. Check the element for blockage by blowing through the fuel inlet end. If the element is good, air should pass through easily.
  5. Once you have checked and/or replaced the filter, reinstall the carburetor nut and the fuel line. Be careful not to strip the threads. Fig. 2: Install the new spring and filter in the order they were removed 86681248.jpg
