Having problems with your 1993 Oldsmobile Achieva ?

1992 Achieva 2.3 L Quad 4 won't start

\015 My wife came home from work. Car was running fine. She goes to leave a few\015\012 hours later, car won't start. Battery is good and strong. When I turn the\015\012 key I have all the lights I should, and the car cranks and cranks, just\015\012 won't fire. I have fuel, have tested the coil packs, coil pack cover,\015\012 plugs and plug wires (if that's what you want to call them) Everywhere\015\012 I've checked says they can't check my particular ignition module,\015\012 something about the leads so it's going to take them a couple weeks to get\015\012 them. I also tried to do some testing of the module. It has three pins in\015\012 the back side and I believe 7 or 8 in the front. One pin of the small\015\012 connector is giving me readins for three of the other pins when I was\015\012 checking resistance and continuity. I also tested my crankcase positioning\015\012 sensor. My old one only read about 550 Ohms, the new one, after it was\015\012 installed and tried to start the car reads about 650 Ohms. Can anyone\015\012 think of anything that I haven't.\015\012car was running fine. next time i went to use it the car would not start. the engine turned over but seemed not to be getting gas. also noticed that the warning lights on the panel were not comming on. took it to a mechanic by tow truck. when i got it there it stated! drove it home . next day it would not start\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

If the battery is good and strong,then the problem rely in the other ignition parts,you must check the coil ,the starter,the crankshaft sensor ,the spark plugs and the distributor cap.Check there connection if tight and conductivity,not loose.
If you had no service engine light when you pit the key on dont look no were else that the pro blem that mean no power to computer go at the battery the positive side you have big wire cable that go to starter and the little wire power to computer there a black jointion pull the wire beetween it if it break repair i often say that problem and for the ignition module never say one defect check it out hope it help fixya thanks pierre

Starter installation hey, a friend of mine has a 1995 oldsmobile achieva that wont start. It has worked fine for the past few years, but all of a sudden began to sporadically not start. Sometime it would, sometimes it wouldn't. Then it just stopped working altogether. We picked up a starter from a junkyard, that was tested, and worked. I installed the new starter myself, and still no start. When the key is turned it clicks once loudly, and then nothing. The belt probably moves less than an inch

My 90 year old pop has a 95 Sonoma. Ninety % of the time it runs fine. Ten % of the time it wont stay running when you take your foot off the gas. RPMs go straight to 0 and the truck stalls. Normally, with this truck, when you take your foot off the gas it will go to 500RPMs and hold steady and never threaten to stall. In it's failing mode it's as though it forgot to go into idle. It doesn't matter if the truck is cold or hot. Then as quickly as it started failing it will start working fine. Thi
