Question about 1996 Oldsmobile 88
When we start the car it runs fine tell it warms up. It will sit at a stoplight and the car engine will start reving up and down and has caused the car to die but starts right back up. When driving the car will be fine tell we stop at a light. This happens even worse when heater is on and it only does it when it wants to. It will sometimes sit there stopped and idle fine and out of nowhere it will start up again. Plus my car makes the sound like my power steering pump is running out of fluid but I can't find the reservoir to fill it please help me out. Thankx
It sounds to me like you may have a blown intake gasket, which is very common on the 3800 V6 engines used in these cars, as for your power steering, the resevoir is located bellow the alternator on the back side of the engine ( it will be directly behind the pulley driven by the drive belt)
