Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1 Answer

My 1993 Olds Cutlass Supreme drives great most of the time. But after putting gas in it, as I am tooling along within the next 1/2 hour, if I slow down to turn or stop, the car begins to shudder and stalls out. I have found if I quickly shift into neutral, and then brake, it will not stall. But this is a nuisance and takes dexterity at some intersections, etc. Would this have to do with bad gas? Thanks for help.

The problem is " The Torque Converter Clutch, (TCC) solenoid" is what actually causes the TCC to engage and disengage. When the TCC solenoid receives a signal from the ECM, it opens a passage in the valve body and hydraulic fluid applies the TCC. When the ECM signal stops, the solenoid closes the valve and pressure is vented causing the TCC to disengage. If the TCC fails to disengage when the vehicle comes to a stop, the engine will stall. This is a common problem with older GM vehicles.

My 1993 olds cutlass supreme idles fine until you step on the gas or when your going down the road at higher speeds than idle it has a hesitation what's the problem?


A flat spot on acceleration could be low fuel pressure or a faulty throttle position sensor. Could also be a vac leak such as a faulty EGR valve.
Is the check engine light on ?

1992 olds cutlass supreme wont accelerate when pushing the gas pedal


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.

5W30 for all temperatures, 10W30 for above 0*F.

Capacity is 5 qts. without filter change. Add extra oil when replacing filter.
I suggest adding in increments of 1/4 qt. (4oz.)at a time until "full" is indicated on the dipstick.

It doesn't have any marks. Make your own before you remove the belt. If the belt was broke or you already removed the belt then you will have to remove the valve covers and install specialty tools into the ends of the camshafts to line everything up correctly.
