Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada

1998 Bravada, losing power, now wont start

A week ago my Olds Bravada starting cutting out when trying to accelerate uphill, I thought it might be the overdrive acting up. 2 nights ago, it started cutting out and the lights were flickering, when it stalled out, it would start up again no problem but continued to sputter and stall. It stalled for good last night, I have had the alternator tested and it passed fine, I replaced the battery as well but it still will not start. It turs over fine, so I know the starter is ok. Any suggestions?

Does it have spark , fuel pressure ? If the starter spins the engine an does not start an run , you have a fuel delivery problem or a ignition system problem . There are videos on youtube showing how to test for these .

SOURCE: 2009 Toyota Camry problems

All Toyota auto trans cars downshift when descending a hill when you tap the brake. This is called "Downhill Shift Logic"; what this is for is to eliminate the double shift when you come to the bottom of a hill and then accelerate. Normal condition. Usually happens above 38 MPH.
Also: The cruise will accelerate when going uphill. Normal condition.Plus: The cruise will not disengage back to the set MPH after you top the hill. Toyota recommends to disengage the cruise when encountering steep terrain.

SOURCE: bucking upon acceleration uphill, not any other

Depending on miles, this could be a timing problem. Also you may want to change plugs, wires, fuel filter and clean fuel injectors.

Aftermarket fuel pump failure? Try "thepartsladi" store on eBay for low price GM OEM parts. Could also be wiring harness to fuel pump.

sounds like an electrical problem, check your alternator an battery tru a shop, if the gages go crazy is a sign of the computer trying to shut down componets because the lack of power or voltage

I have a 2000 oldsmobile bravada. The truck just stopped a couple of weeks ago. I got a PCM from the junk yard and replaced that. Still no start. I replaced the fuel pump and today I get it to start and...


make sure you check the simple things. like the fuel filter if they get plugged they will give low to no fuel pressure. plug wires if they haven't been changed for a while.plugs themselves will tell you lots take them out and check them to see how they look.

2000 Olds Bravada ignition


Okay .. had the EXACT same problem - word for word .. turns out, that my positive battery cable was corrodid badly.. the ignition switch wasnt getting any power or signal - so it didnt know the trans was in park, so it locked the key in place... and all power cut off obviously because no juice was going thru the cable.
Apparently however.. you will get almost the exact same symptoms if the ignition switch burns out... so first test the battery cables themselves.. if they are fine .. then plan on replacing the ignition switch.
