Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

2 Answers

I have a 92 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera, the brake pressure is not equal. More pressure to the rear than to the front. I have checked the lines and hoses all seem OK. I think the trouble is the proportioning valve. Im not sure of its location and cant find any info as far as pictures or drawings of the hydraulic circuit. So I called Auto zone and others parts dealers to find a replacement part and they all have said the parts not available. Is it possible to correct this problem by flushing the brake system with new fluid? Also can the proportioning valve be cleaned out? Removing the debris clogging the valve? Or is this problem an electrical controls problem? Thanks Chris

To start with unless u have replaced the front brake hoses they probally need replaced.and the valve can be found by following the lines out of the master cyl. to a spliter block looking thing . by the way there is a reset button on it that u may need a small. screw driver to push while someone pumps the brakes.hope this helps

What makes the fuel pump not kick on on a 92 Oldsmobile Cutlass


There is a red wire close to the battery in the front. It's not connected to anything. Apply positive voltage and that will run your pump for testing purposes.

No one can seem to find a problem or fix my brakes. For about a year now when I hit the brakes, they seem to catch or grab for a few seconds almost locking up the rear wheels.I have replaced everything...


Have you checked the proportioning valve,if it has one,
this regulates the pressure between the front and rear systems.
It will be a small steel item in the brake line system.

if the lights light but don't blink you have a bad flasher if the don't light at all try you 4 way flashers and if they don't work you need a multi-function switch that controls brake light and blinkers and 4 way flashers.

let me know what you have and what you don't and i can better help diagnosis the problem with you.

How to bleed brake lines for a 1990 oldsmobile cutlass ciera


Two people, one to pump the peddal and one to open and close the bleeder valve....

Person 1 pumps the peddal 5-6 times, then holds the peddal, while person 2 opens the valve till the peddal hits the floor, then person 2 closes the valve.

you start on the Passenger rear and do this till you get no air and only fluid, then repete process on Drivers rear, then Passenger front, the Drivers front...

Make sure valve is closed when pumping or realsing the peddal, as this will allow air into the system.

Check fluid level after each wheel to ensure you don't run empty during operation.
