My car was doing the same it would run while and then stop and it wouldnt start again until it sat a while. It was my crankshaft sensor. works fine on that score now.

How to i adjust the idol speed on my 1985 cutlass supreme? I do not have a gauge for rpms.. but it just sounds and feels to high.. i've cleaned the throttle body and everything.. what piece do i turn or...


On some models the TBI cannot be adjusted .Usually these functions are carried out by the Idle Air Control valve ,the Throttle Position Sensor and the power control module.Any kind of adjustment will cause false signals to the PCM.I would take it to a local mechanic and have him test your rpms at idle that will give you a rough idea where running at.That way you can find out what the recommended rpms are and see where you stand at that point.most of this can usually be tested at your local autoparts store depending what area your in.

Hi I have a 1991 Olds Cutlass Supreme, with a 3.1 liter engine. My problem is when the car warms at stops it runs rough. Sometimes shuts off. Sometimes when crusing at speeds 30-50 the car sort of jerks...


My 3.4 liter 91 Cutlass Supreme has similar problem when warm the engine misses (car jerks). But its fine at idle and without any accelerator pressure. The SERVICE ENGINE light also comes on intermittantly. I am going to test the ignition coils.

1991 olds cutlass supreme with a 3.1 v-6 the engine


I am having a similar problem, but there is no check engine light. It seems that mine dies at the light or running, if the rpm's drop. I am wondering if the Idle air control valve is bad or possibly the ERG valve?

Overfilled coolant reservoir


This should not be a big deal. You can try a syphon tube but DO NOT SWALLOW ANY COOLANT. Or use a large turkey baster to **** up up coolant. It takes awhile though.
The car is fine to drive.

91 olds cutlass 2.3 having problem with gas mixing with the oil......... the 2 outside plugs are dry and the 2 middle plugs are wet with gas


The wet plugs are not firing. The engine must be running rough. Check for spark on the middle two. Find the problem and change oil and filter.

When driving the engine in my 1992 cutlass will start running rough. Sometimes it will just smooth out by itself and other times I will take it out of overdrive and and put it into drive and usually will...


could be a weak spark caused by poor spark plugs, coil, or coilpacks. Most noticeable under load, hence switching to a lower gear fixes the situation temporarily.

Or the MAF sensor is on its way out, this is located after the air filter in the intake tube.

Falls dead when driving, will restart after awhile


Did you try checking or replacing the coolant sensor? I think you should replace it along with the thermostat. Are there any problems like sputtering or any unusual noises or symptoms? Smoke, anything?
