Sounds like you have a bad O2 sensor - typically what happens is the sensor will go into closed loop and stay there and once it cools down will open up and be able to start again - your car has two O2 sensors, it is best to replace them both - bet you notice your car getting crappy fuel mileage too. hopefully this helps you, as this is the most common problem - Also, clean your Mass Airflow Sensor, this is really easy to do and may help as well and should be the first thing you do before throwing a couple hundred dollars into new O2 sensors, use CRC mass airflow sensor cleaner available at auto zone or advance auto for about $10.00 a can, if you are not familiar with where it is located ask the guys at the auto parts store to show you - it takes like 15 minutes to do and requires only a t-20 torx bit - this part needs to be cleaned every 6000 miles.

Take the EGR Valve off and clean it with a non-chlronated brake cleaner and a wire brush.Sounds like the EGR Valve is stuck in the open position this will make the motor idle rough but running over 45 mph its smooth.

My sons first car he is looking at 1998 oldsmobile intrigue. What is the transmission life expectancy with 168000 if it has been well maintained.


An "intriguing" question, and one with out a real answer, except that if it has been well maintained, then to keep it that way. The transmissions on these GM's are average, like any car ,and can be as good or better than the engine. If there is concern for this, ask for records of transmission filter and fluid changes, which should happen roughly after every 50,000 mi. After purchasing, have the transmission fully flushed to include the torque converter.

MY HOT AND COLD METER KEEPS RISING AND FALLING


If the fans are electric, then replace the fan control module.
If the fan is belt driven, replace the fan clutch.

There is a chance that the thermostat is failing, but if the temperature fluctyation occurs during driving, as opposed to stopped and idling, then it's probably the fans.

2000 olds intrigue, when idling and coming to stops the car has a tendancy to bog down and even kill sometimes. Maf sensor and crank position sensor already changed out. what could be causing this.


do this procedure it works
Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Start and stop


Top candidates for this problem are:
Clogged Fuel filter
Faulty Fuel pump
Clogged fuel injectors
Dirty / worn spark plugs

Of these, only the clogged fuel injectors are likely to respond to a gas tank additive, and even then you need to get the right kind of additive.
If your fuel filter has not been changed in a while (couple years), start with this. It is fairly easy to change. The fuel filter is under the car near the the driver's side rear door.
If this problem started "suddenly," then the fuel pump might be the culprit.
Fuel injector / spark plug issues are not likely to stop the engine right away, but would tend to cause it to miss cylinders, idle rough, or start rough.
