    I have the same problem and had a pressure test done with the fuel filter changed. I noticed that if you wait 12 minutes and start the car in nuetral it starts right up? If you found the answer I would love to know.

When was the last time fuel filter was chg.? If its been a while change it, first and formost, do fuel pressure test. if pump is weak it will do what you discribed. When all that checks out ok, Than chk. fuel regulator.

Rpm does not drop below 1000


No,only on carburated engines it,idles down to the set point,on yours,it's fuel injected,pushing gas pedal won't kick idle down,should go down after a certain amount of time,does it automatically,If you start and drive a 5 mile ride and stop at a stop sign,it should idle at it's set point if there's no engine problems,which may be.5 to .7 on your tac.When you normally first start,it will idle between 1000 to 1200 rpm's,don't push on gas,let idle say 15 seconds,put in drive and go.

1998 Olds Cutlass- My gauges were moving around very quickly when I turned the ignition. It won't start now and sounds like the battery is dead, but it's not. My gas gauge has spun around and sits under...


HiYour battery is not fully charged, jump start vehicle and take it to and AutoZone or similar auto parts store to have your charging/starting system checked for free.
On the gauges issue, you have to remove the instrument cluster and manually turn/reset the gas gauge. I have a 98 Olds Intrigue and happened a few times. I pull the gauge needle out and set it where it would be if the key where OFF, then plug the electrical connector on the cluster and turn the key to ON to verify gauge positions, on my case, I had to reset the temp. gauge too.
Good Luck! Don't forget to rate this post!!

Car wont idle, dies and shifts eratically


Hello;
It definetly sounds like a vacuum leak problem. The vacuum hoses are routed to perform various functions for the engine and transmission. They can be very difficult to track down. They are small diameter black hoses and start at the intake manifold (the source) and go to their respective locations.
They could be cracked, oil soaked, loose fitting, or disconnected to name a few problems to look for. Take it to a mechanic if you do not feel comfortable replacing the hoses.
Thanks;
