1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200k miles
my spark will happen only a couple of times on tester, with eng. Turning over for 10 sec. I read that if you take the dist. Cap off and observe the rotor cap turning--your timing chain is ok. It turns but, it jerks about a quarter turn stops-quarter turn stops. It makes about a full turn in the 10 sec. That I'am turning the eng. Over. Is It just almost broke? The day It happened, the eng. Was cold & I had to floor It to get into traffic. It did'nt make It out of 1st. Gear & died. There was never a indication before hand that I had a problem. The eng. Turns over fine. Thanks for your help.
have the same problem?
