Most of the time,it is the ignition module in the distributor,remove it,and have the auto parts store check it for you,if it checks good,then the coil,will be most likely the problem,just make sure the rotor button still turns when starting the engine,cause if it has a lot of miles the timing chain might have broken.If this was at all helpful,please rate thank you.

I need to know how to change the spark plugs in a 1994 Cutlass Ciera S 6cyl 3.1 engine


The two upper motor mounts, between engine and the bar running across the top of the radiator, must be disconnected at the engine end and the engine rotated forward, so that the rear plugs can be worked on. On a Chevy, there is a second hole in one of the mounts (dog-bone mount) that can be used to hold the engine forward. I'm not sure if the Oldsmobile has this type of mount or not. See the linked YouTube video. CHANGING SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES GM 3 1 3 4 V6

Geting no spark to cylenders 5 & 6


Hi there:
  • Check the spark plug wires and the coil wire, ensure that the spark plug wires are securely attached to the spark plugs and the distributor cap.

  • Check the wire routing in order to ensure that cross-firing is not occurring. If the misfire occurs when the weather is damp, the problem could be due to worn plug wires.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

How do you change the spark plugs on a 1993 oldsmobile cutlass supreme


Your Cutlass is either the 3.1 V6 or the 3400 Dual Overhead 24 valve V6...each motor is clearly marked on top of the engine plenum. If you have not changed the plugs yet...I recomend you do that at the same time...you can purchase inexpensive replacement wires with a limited lifetime warranty...be sure to compare. No special tools needed to switch out the plug wires...I highly recomend using plug wire boot lube grease to assure good clean water proof contact...also helps ease od service later as needed. The lube is only a couple of bucks...Be sure to ask the parts person the ignition firing order...this will help to confirm proper installation...Remove only one wire at a time...this insures you maintain the current firing order...remove and replace only ONE wire at a time...disconnect from the plug, then trace to the coil pack, and disconnect...replace with similar length wire using lube grease on both end connections...Plug wires and plugs should be replaced on your Cutlass OBD I motor by 100,000 miles...they can wear out and leak or misfire prior to that...Your motor is also sensitive to a clean Idle Air Control valve...about $35. or try to clean the old one and mounting hole with injector spray cleaner and wipe out...Also check for any vacumn leaks while changing wires...the old rubber lines and connections crack and leak with age...The Cutlass is usally a reliable long term car...Good luck with yours. Hope this helps.
