Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

1993 cutless cierra, when driving, all is fine, then when you come to a stop sign, or a light, the engine cuts off. It will start immediately, but when you put it into gear, it cuts off. had to have it towed to mechanic and when he got in, it worked just fine. wife took it for a 20 mile ride, called and said that it had cut off again. some guys pushed her to a safe spot, i went to her and the engine started right up, put in gear, and was able to get almost home. At a light it cut off , and when i started it again, it cut off. did this several times, until I pulled the gear to overdrive, got a wheelee, and got it home. Left it in overdrive, and made it back to home. took it back to mechanic, but he doesnt know what to do to fix it. says it drives fine when he drivews it and will not cut off.

Sounds like the lockup converter is not releasing when you stop, like stopping with a stick shift and not pushing in the clutch. lockup solenoid most likely. Could just disconnect the lockup sol. (won't lock up at all) or replace the solenoid.

SOURCE: engine cuts out

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

My truck is a 95 chevy silverado 1500 it cuts off in 1st gear


Does it seem like when the engine is cold it runs ok, then when it reaches operating temp. it starts acting up? (poor acceleration, stalling) When I had that problem w/ my 93 K1500, it ended up being my oxygen sensor. (causing too rich of a mixture in the throttle body)
Hope this helps, Good luck

I have a 1993 olds cutless ciera and when i come to a stop it wants to cut off i put it nutrual and come to a stop and give it a little gas and it will go again or i put it into drive and it cuts off


It depends on how fast you are going when you come to a stop.
If you are above 45 mph it could be the torque converter not releasing. If you are under 40mph it could be a faulty idle air control valve or a dirty throttle body. The computer controls idle speed by how much air enters the throttle body thru the control valve.

Might be a leak on your brake booster (this will most probable give you a hard brake pedal or a "sucking sound " when applying brakes) also check the vacumm pipe from the engine to the brake booster. It might have a leak, so when you press the brakes it influences the air mixture.

It cuts off cuts completely off while im driving or even at stop sign or stop light


if it cuts off after you have been driving there is a good chance that you ignition coil or module is getting to hot. One good way to tell is if this happens after you have been driving and then it is starts back up after you sit for a little while.

Engine stalls at stop lights and stop signs


sounds like the torque converter lock up might not be disengaging. You might also want to check for engine vacuum leaks. Does engine idle smoothly when in park or nuetral ? if the idle is good I would suspect torque converter problem.
