    well i already had it power flushed but im pretty sure all that did was clog the filter. im thinkin that the check valve in the oil pump might be stuck. is that even a possibility for this sort of problem?

    well i havent had this problem until after i flushed it

Sounds like the bands in the transmission are burnt up!! I would say try changing the tranny fluid first and filter to see if you get any metal in the fluid and see if new fluid helps!

    I wouldnt think that having your tranny flushed would clog the power valve!! But, I have see some of the most weird things happen so anything is possible!! If you clogged the filter then that is not good either!! You need to replace the filter asap, if it isnt too late for this tranny!!

How much is a used 89 delta 88 worth with new brakes and 100 000 km on engine?


There are many factors that go into a cars value. You best bet to get the best ball park figure is to google search NADA blue book or Kelly Blue Book. These companies specialize in determining the value of vehicles and are the industry standard when it comes to car value.

Once you are on there site you will enter several key important pieces of information like engine size, 2 door or 4 door, Royal or brougham, sunroof, what power option, Etc. and then give you the approximate values.

Off the top of my head you could expect any where from $1000 to $2500 depending on the condition. New brake, tires, or other repairs make no difference on the value of the car. Those are things that needed to be done although they are good selling points.

1988 oldsmobile delta 88 won't drive forward


This is probably the transmission. Check the transmission fluid level to make sure it is at the appropriate level. If not add transmission fluid to reach the appropriate level. If this does not work then the gears may be burnt out in the transmission.
