Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Bravada
1997 Oldsmobile Bravada.
1st issue - doesn't want to start. I give it gas and it will start. Once it is started, it runs fine. I have changed the fuel filter. When I had my oil changed I had some fuel cleaning service done to it.
2nd isue - heat not blowing hot. I have checked the fluid in the raditor and it's fine. It will get semi-warm but not hot like it should be. Could this be my thermostat?
I'm sure you either got yours fixed or don't own anymore, but if anyone has this issue, mine did the same thing and it was the distributor cap. it would start sometimes then die, or not start for a few days.

The starting issue is most likely caused by a defective fuel pressure check valve in the fuel pump in the fuel tank, it causes exactly the problem u describe. The 2nd issue is caused either by the thermostat in the engine being defective or the air temperature control door motor being defective, have the thermostat tested before u replace it, if u have a temp guage for the engine if it reaches anywhere close to the center of the sweep the T-stat is OK.
