Question about 1997 Oldsmobile LSS
I would have the ignition coils checked to make sure that they are still functioning properly. I don't know if you have an advanced auto parts near you, but for my girlfriend I just replaced all (3) ignition coils. They were $24 each so it wasn't that bad. Cleared her problem right up. I also replaced the plugs and plug wires at the same time. She was having the same symptoms. When you open up the hood if you look to the left near the battery you will see a collection of cables running from the ignition coils. If you have the V6 there should be 3 ignition coils and 2 spark plug wires running from each one. To remove the ignition coils if you want to remove them simply use a 5.5 mm socket and an extension. there is a mini bolt on each side. Only do these one at a time so you don't get them confused. It is essential that each ignition coil corresponds with the correct cyclinder so that the engine will fire properly.
