What transmissions will fit the engine? Like from different cars?


Best bet would be for you to visit a local salvage yard and make this inquiry.
Most larger yards will have a cross reference (or interchange) list available for questions just like this.

I have a 1985 or 86 Cutlass Calais that is having transmission problems. It had been running ok, with only an occasional feeling that perhaps the transmission might be slipping a little going up a steep...


Darlene Transmission jobs will cost around $1500.00 if you find an honest mechanic. Go back to the parts store and buy some Tranx. put this in your transmission. If it is a little over full it will be ok. your transmission sounds as if the orings are letting fluid bypass. This stuff will help. I used it in my truck 2 &1/2 years ago and haven't had a problem since. My transmission would drop out of gear completely. It took about three days for the problem to go away. $10.00 compared to a $300.00 solenoid package. Good luck

86 olds calais only starts if i pour fuel in throttle body fuel pump is working, is their a fuel filter by the throttle body or could it be a relay


The fuel filter is under the car, in-line. If the pump runs, it wouldn't be the relay. When you try to start it, can you see any gas spray from the injector? You could have a bad injector. Check for power going to the injector.

Whatyrwas the cutlass calais manfufactured,and was there ever a stands hift trans in any olds cutlass calais??


Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais were made from1978-1991, and yes there were manual trans as well as automatic trans.

Here's some History on the Cutlass Calais.


March 1982 to replace Starfire, Lansing's version of the front-drive 101.2-inch-wheelbase corporate J-body subcompact failed to attract more than about 45,000 customers in most years -- except for 1984, when it garnered a credit­able 82,500 -- even though Olds tried most everything it could think of to sell it.

1988 the Firenza had offered all the J body styles, sporty GT and SX variants, overhead-valve and overhead-cam fours, optional V-6, and a confusing procession of price-leader and luxury models. But nothing seemed to work, and Olds gave up after '88. Firenza was no great loss, though, because 1985 brought a more-sale-able small Olds in the N-body Calais, called Cutlass Calais after 1988. Sized between Firenza and Omega on a 103.4-inch wheelbase, it bowed as a rounded, short-deck coupe in two versions: base and -- just to confuse things -- Supreme. Four-door sedans were added for 1986.
There was a lot of J-car engineering under the "modern formal" styling, and initial engine choices were the Ciera's familiar Pontiac-built four and 3.0-liter Buick V-6. Even so, customers generally liked this new bottle of old wine, snapping up 100,000-plus in the first year and better than 150,000 of the '86s -- about midway between the similar Pontiac Grand Am and Buick Skylark/Somerset.
For 1988, Calais coupes and sedans grouped into base, luxury SL, and sporty International Series (the last replacing a GT package option), but the big news was the first twin cam, 16-valve four-cylinder engine in American production, the Quad-4. Designed and built by Olds and offered as an across-the-board Calais option, it delivered 150 rather rough and noisy horses, but was claimed capable of much more.
Olds proved it by adding a tuned 180-bhp version for 1989. A more-useful option that year was a new 3.3-liter derivative of the 173-cid Chevrolet-sourced V-6. Replacing the Buick-built 3.0, it also produced 160 bhp -- and more torque than even the "High Output" Quad-4. To fill in for the departed Firenza, prosaically named Value Leader Calais models appeared for '89 with less standard equipment and restricted options but lower prices.
Enthusiasts surely shuddered when the 442 returned (sans hyphens) as a performance option for the base 1990 Calais coupe. Olds said the name now designated "Quad-4, 4 valves per cylinder and 2 camshafts."
Included in the $1667 package were the 180-horse Quad-4, five-speed manual transaxle, a specific version of Oldsmobile's FE3 sport suspension, meaty 215/60R14 performance tires on alloy wheels, full instrumentation, a cute rear-deck spoiler, and bold "442" exterior I.D. "Buff books" gave this latest 442 a lot of ink, but customers mostly gave it the cold shoulder.
Even a hallowed name on an honestly speedy little car couldn't convince many that Olds still specialized in high performance the way it had in the '50s and '60s.

How do you add transmission fluid?


If this is for a 2002 and up explorer with the 4.6, there isn't a dipstick. It is a complicated deal. The vehicle has to be running much like the old ones, but a plug must be removed from the pan. Behind the plug is a upwards tube that you, believe it or not, squirt oil up into until it runs generously back at you. then it is full.

Crazy huh?
