1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Brougham. The engine is a 3.8L
1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Brougham. The engine is a 3.8L . Has been getting about 10 mpg through town for the last 6 years. Recently started stalling during acceleration. Really cutting out like it was not getting enough fuel. Took to local shop. Shop called back and said they were getting a 'too lean' reading for the fuel mix. They replaced oxygen sensor and catalytic converter. Shop called and said they keep getting curve balls thrown at them, now the engine is dumping too much fuel into the intake system causing the catalytic converter to fail. The guys at the shop are great. Excellent mechanics, any help appreciated. ( Timing Chain replaced within the past 6 years ) … read more
