What type of ignition does 1988 cutlass ceria 3.8l have 1 or 2 ?????

BOTH types of ignition coils were used on 1988 Cutlass Ciera. Type 1 is a single unit with 3 coils built into it. If one coil goes bad, you must replace the entire unit. Type 2 incorporates 3 separate coils mounted on the control module. These coils can be replaced individually. (See picture below) You simply have to LOOK at your ignition coils to see which type your Cutlass is equipped with. Please note that these systems are NOT interchangeable.

Determining which ignition coils need replacement 1988 cutlass supreme

If you can afford to, I would replace all of them. If not, you'll need to verify which coils are not firing with a spark tester.

Hi, first there is either 1 or 2 engine struts attached between the radiator and the engine. disconnect them at the engine and reinsert the bolts into the strut then standing in front of car either push or pull the car by hand to make engine lean towards radiator just enough to catch a tab located on the engine strut mount to hold the engine away from the firewall with plenty of room to access the sparkplugs.

How do you change the rear struts in my 95 Olds Cutlass supreme? Is this something I could do myself or would I be better off taking it to a mechanaic?

Many of the 95 Cutlass Supremes have a transverse leaf spring suspension on the rear and there are no coil springs. I believe it depends on whether it is a 2 door or 4 door model. It is much easier to do the struts on the transverse leaf spring type. Support the knuckle with a jack or jack stand. Unbolt the upper mounting bracket by removing 2 bolts from inside the wheel well. Then remove the 2 bolts holding the bottom of the strut to the knuckle. Now you can remove the upper mounting bracket from the strut and place it on the new strut. Reinstall by reversing the procedure.

You can also leave the upper mounting bracket on the car and just unbolt the strut, but this can be more difficult. Support the knuckle with a jack or jack stand. Use a torx socket to keep the strut shaft from spinning and remove the upper mounting nut. Now remove the 2 bolts holding the bottom of the strut to the knuckle. Reinstall by reversing the procedure.

I cnt find or get to the back spark plugs of my 1988 olds cutlass supreme 2.8L v-6 front wheel drive where are they and how can i get to them to replace them

On those engines in order to get to the rear plugs (firewall side), you have to remove a bolt from each of the 2 upper motor mounts (they're called dog bones) at the front of the engine and at the same time you take a pry bar and rock the engine forward and put a block of wood between the engine and the firewall. Some dog bones have an extra hole in them so you can slide a bolt in them to hold the engine forward. It sounds like alot of hassle but it isn't that bad. Good luck!
