Question about 1989 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight Royale
I have had trouble with the fuel pump every winter because it is old and appears to freeze over. Because of this I have to try to start it over and over again, which then drains the battery. This last time I drained the battery before the pump became warm. I got a jump and with a bit of work, it eventually started. Then, after getting done with the place that we were trying to get to, the car starts barely and then a smokey smell hits the inside of the car. Still, it started, so I went home. I let the car run a bit thinking that I may have drained the battery too much. Then I shut the car off. On a whim, I tried to start the car again and that is when I got the clicking sound every time I try to turn the car over. Did I fry the starter? If so, where is it in this car and what do I do?
If it clicks when your trying to start it then its the battery i had the same problem
