Questions and Answers

Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Keeps Stalling

Q. Hello. I have a 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera S, 6 cylinder, 3.3 liter engine, fuel injection, 118,875 miles. The problem I am having is that it keeps cutting off. I know the battery and alternator are good. I have changed the starter, ignition module, ignition coils, ECM and the fuel filter. I will admit that I have a leak in the engine.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Keeps Stalling

My mechanic said that it was the intake manifold gasket. It is leaking on the same side as the alternator. They said that it could be the Crankshaft Position Sensor, but I don't have a clue because they said that the ignition module would do the trick and it didn't so I'm turning to you.

Please help this is my everything car, work, play, you name it I have to use this car to do it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you...

A. A bad crank sensor could very well be the cause but since you need this car badly, you would save yourself a lot of guess work by going to a dealer and let them look at it. Once they call you to tell you what the problem is, ask them to guarantee the repair and that if it's not what they say it is that they will fix it no matter what the problem turns out to be. Most dealers do this but it's worth mentioning.
