I would suggest that you have a bad batch of gas in your tank. (Water in gas) this would be why engine runs poor and stalling. Drain and/or put good gas in.

Could be the ignition. First check around the dash and look for a light that says security. If you see this light anywhere, that will explain the starter not working. Check out this link for info pictures and solutions http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Check for the ignition coil and the distributor (If a Distributor based Current Discharge System is installed or a CDI).. It seems like it is not properly working and causing "no Spark" condition...

It's likely that the pulleys are not all in alignment, and may have to replace the tensioner or other pulley device that is out of alignment (not in the plane of where the belt should be). Check that all bolts are in place.

problems can range from the gas cap not being tightened enough to massive engine failure, but if it's on and off it's most likely a mass air flow sensor problem. turn your car on and pop the hood. search the entire engine bay for leaks in your exhaust system. A good sign of a leak is engine sludge when you change your oil and air filter's getting clogged and dirty significantly faster than normal.

If the block and radiator has been completely drained, it will hold slightly less than 2 1/2 gallons. If you are refilling from a something like simple water pump relacement you will need about 1 1/2 gallons.

Is the Service Engine Soon (or Check Engine) light illuminated on the instrument panel? If so, then have someone pull the codes and post them back here. Autozone will do this for you at no cost.Caution: don't purchase any parts after reading the codes on their recommendation! If no codes, then suspect either a bad crankshaft sensor or camshaft sensor. There are other possibilities too, but these are primary. I have seen MANY bad crank sensors do exactly what your describe without setting a code.

THe cam sensor tells the computer what position the camshaft is in .The cam sensor is located on the front of the timing cover midway up the front of the engine. be careful and check that the magnet did not fall out of the cam gear

Remove battery cables for 10-15 min and reattach that should clear it

I do not believe there is a speedometer cable in a 1992 Olds. I think that you have a speed sensor that transmits to the speedometer via two wires. The speed sensor is mounted near the drive shaft where two magnets transmit rotation speed to the sensor.
