Question about 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
The timing chain can jump a notch, apparently, but popular opinion seems to favor the coils. Don't know how many your motor has - probably 3. Check online for testing procedures with a multimeter. Check the resistance between terminals with the wires off the coils.

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.

Hello! You have symptoms that point to incorrect fuel pressure.
First have the fuel pressure tested as follows; #1...engine running at idle: 13- 20 psi. #2...key on engine off: 23-30 psi. If pressure is incorrect change the fuel pump.
Does the engine "surge" at idle? If so, check the "fuel injection pressure regulator idle air control valve". Apply a vacuum to it; If fuel flows it is not the problem.
