Oil light on in 1989 cutlass ciera

The sensor wire may have fallen off the motor, the sensor may have gone bad after all these years. Ground the wire to the car, if the lite goes out, the sensor is bad. Or reverse that, remove the wire and see if the lite goes out. Depends on how the car is wired.

Yeah you can use it. You don't have to have a license to have and use 134A. Your 88 ciera had R12 in it originally but just use 134A.

Just removed the water pump on my 1962 Oldsmobile 88. There is oil on one of the bolts. What problem do I have?

None. Sometimes the attaching bolt goes into the oil gallery. Make sure you use a thread sealer on that bolt.

1988 oldsmobile cutlass ciera check engine light on then stalled.

Wow! thats verry low miles for an 88. Check the fuel pressure at the injector. If the pressure is low the filter could be clogged or the pump is not putting out enough pressure. Replace both if the pressure is not up to par. also check the fuel relays.
