The service engine soon light comes on for many reasons..it could be as simple as CO2 sensor, or it may just be one of the lights that just stays on, ask your local GM garagre to reset the code for you..maybe cost you a couple bucks.

That is the ODB11 Code Reader Port. When your engine malfunction light comes on, you attach a code reader to that socket and the machine give a P Code. That code tells the problem as stated from the ECM (engine control module.

Do you need a certain type of obd reader for a 97 olds achieva? Used an inexpensive obd2 reader but it failed to communicate.


Not all readers are created equal. It all has to do with how they interface with the on board computer system, it is called "protocol" Make sure you get a reader that is listed as being able to read 1997 GM system fault codes. You can also go to any Autozone and have them read your codes.

Not likely the injectors are causing the dieing

Check for a worn timing chain & vacuum leaks

1988 olds cutlass 2.8 v6 4sp trany seems to stick in overdrive. trany fluid looks and smells fine. also shifts fine going up.


Hello,
I have a Olds Cutless Ciera 1089 with the 2.8 MFI V6, and my car was stalling more and more coming to a stop. It would always start right up, but as soon as I put in back in drive many times would stall again. You can try to prove that it is the Lock up clutch converter solenoid which is inside of a side cover on the drivers side. I unplugged mine and the problem went away for good. Per a GM dealership shop tech, said It won't hurt anything for a while. He said it wasn't urgent to fix a sticking solenoid, for weeks or months, but should fix it sometime. You might lose some of the gas mileage from unplugging it, no lock up at upper speeds. Old school cars never even had these, and they were plenty problematic in GM cars, of getting stuck or staying sticky. Hope this helps.

I need a code to unlock a cd player in a 2000 oldsmobile alero its in loc mode.


Call your local GM Oldsmobile dealer and ask for the crevice department.
Have your car VIN number ready at hand
They shut be able to tell your code by you VIN number.
How ever some times they wan to make money and they will tell you
Than you going to have to bring your car over so they can charge you just for that. if you don't wan to pay just call referent dealer or call referent time.
Good luck.
