Question about 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado
After engine is shut off and started several times it wont start until it cools off
Make sure you have 50/50 coolant and water.i would replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.replace air filter make sure engine getting fresh air.check radiator cores and front grille from debris blocking off airflow through grille to radiator.if problem continue flush out coolant system radiator engine block and heater core.water going bad cause over heat problems also.

Could be ignition control module or a fuel delivery problem..check module connector to make sure it is properly attached and check fuel preesure when vehicle is warm...

SOURCE: wont start
Take it to a shop for diagnostics. It could be alot of things, but is probably a faulty fuel pump.
Fuel pumps usually fail once the car gets to operating temperature and then they sieze up if they are faulty.
Although it could be alot of other things, faulty computer, to a clogged fuel filter.

I think you have to check and monitor your engine temperature..Has this risen more than half on the indicator and if it stays there and goes further and does not comes back to half way or less then you have few problems..It may be your radiator is blocked and may need replacing or else it may be your thermostat is not good.But you have to be very careful as this may cause the head gasket to blow off and mess the engine.Check if there is lots of water coming out through the exhaust pipe.Also cross check your water level and if you notice it needs refilling quite often then you have a damaged gasket..Hope this helps and leave me a rating..

Could be one of many things but maybe either cam or crank sensor... choices are either swap out each part with a known good one, or be fortunate to know someone with the dealer manual that will tell you what voltage should read from each component....chilton's will help but the actual dealer manual will give you more specific info about how to check voltages from each sensor.
