Question about Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1 Answer

I'm working on a 1998 Cutlass Supreme 3.1L. Interchange book says that only the 1998 and 1999 Cutlass and Malibu engine will fit. My question is, what do I need to do to make an older 3.1L or a newer 3.1L fit?

Hi, there is really nothing to do to make an older 3.1L or a newer 3.1L fit outside the 1998 and 1999 engine. Trying to use an older 3.1L or a newer 3.1L fit into it will require you to change some other major parts and component like the transmission which is equivalent to buying a new car by the time you consider the cost.

Can a motor from a 98 cutlass fit into a 02 Malibu?


Depends on the engine and the cutlass.
A salvage yard would have the books to tell you what will interchange.
If both engines are the same size, and both cars are the same body style, the basic engines may swap out, but the sensors and exhaust manifolds probably won't. You could have problems with the motor mounts and flywheel too.

Can a v6 ford engine fit a olds cutlass supreme


No. Thankfully, such an abomination has never been ...well, no doubt some idiot somewhere has actually done it. The only similarity between GM and Ford cars is concept and powertrain layout. Little if anything is compatible or interchangeable between them.
Ditch the supreme and find a ford car needing the exact same engine as yours.

Passlock reset


It's when the security light starts flashing that the infamous "chip" in the key becomes a nightmare to many. Gradually the car begins not cranking anymore or if it cranks it would start and die in a second. Randomly it will do this more and more often until it won't start anymore. VATS, PASSkey and Passlock immobilizer systems are killing cars all over North America, they have a short lifespan and are certainly more effective against owners than thieves. Here is how you save your car
1st trick, Try a spare key that is newer or used less. The pins wear down and so do the keys causing security fail. 2nd trick, (if not starting) turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start. I did this in my regal for more than a year. If its shutting down while running, im sorry i have no quick fix... If anything on this page helps you, please remember to comment or give me a thumbs up on the myfixya sight so i can have a better rating to help more people on this. Thanks

Cheap fix: Bypass the chip in your key. Temporary, but effective. Until the TDM (theft deterrent module) in the dash poops out, then you're kinda screwed. I was told that these types of key security systems have a 7-10 year life span. Sucks for us. This link explains the "Key Issue" pretty well.

Never worry again fix: Bypass the whole VATS/Passlock/passkey I or passkey II system entirely. Literally take it out, and throw it away. I just did this in my Regal. Took about an hour. Took longer to find the thing than it did to fix the problem. They sell a unit for 200 bucks to totally bypass this system FOREVER. life time-money back and all that. Finally did this in my car. Well worth the 200 if you've looked into getting this replaced... Anywhere from 600-1000 bucks. If you do buy this, please purchase it thru this link. The cost is the same, but i get credit for the sale and im trying to earn my money back, as you will be able to do if you buy fron NewRockies and join the free affiliate program. Thanks
----- http://newrockies.ca?ap_id=judd0081 ----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey system out of your car all together. Good info on both sites.

It works for:
Any GM or Isuzu Vehicle with VATS or PASSKey or PASSLock security systems.
If your car has the chip in the key or in the lock cylinder, then you can save it with this Full Bypass.

Without Modifing too much, it will probaly be best if you go with a 307 oldsmobile motor..4 barrel carb.. You can probaly fit a 350 motor in there, but you might have to change around alot of stuff
