1986 Oldsmobile Ciera Custlass Brougham V6 Gas from North America
I can't figure out why the car will crank up and then sometimes the idle drops so low and the car shuts off. I've been too many mechanics and none can figure out what's wrong! I had a new distributor put in and that did not solve the problem. New spark plugs have been put in also and that did not solve the problem. Can anyone help me with this???
Also, when the car is first cranked up, the steering wheel will not turn to the right! I can't figure out this one either! I can force the steering wheel and it will go and eventually (about 5 to 10 minutes after the car has been running) the steering wheel returns to normal. Is this a power steering problem? Again, mechanics can't figure it out.
I love this car! It has been very reliable except for the usual replacements when it reached 50k miles. The compressor was replaced and the other things mentioned above were replaced as well. I just wish I could figure out the problems I mentioned in the past 2 paragraphs. If anyone knows about these problems and has a solution, please email me et firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just 1 step down from a Cadillac!
I love this car!
I hope it will be a classic soon as it sure drives and looks like one.
The 6-cylinder engine is fantastic!
The interior is very roomy!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have a 1986 Ciera Cutlass Brougham. It had 140,000 k`s when I bought it. Now it has 223 k`s.
I had one problem; the gas tank started to leak. When I replaced it, I had stalling problems for awhile, but after awhile the stalling stopped and it now runs like a top.
I change oil every 5000 k`s and it doesn`t burn a drop in that time. Also very comfortable to drive.
