Question about 1994 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight
I tried connecting 2 different obd2 readers to the port and both indicate that they cannot access the on board computer to retreive the error codes. Could this be a blown fuse? The cig liter works. Is it possible to get these codes from the dash screen? This car has been serviced only at the dealership, thruout its life, so they must have been able to read the codes. At one time the car had a remote starter connected, could this have messed it up?
The car is lacking power at speed (after the engine light comes on) while on the highway at 50mph for a short period. If I back off the throttle, I can get response up to 40mph, but if I depress the pedal further, it bogs out. Eventually the power comes back a bit and I can run the car but if it down shifts in passing gear, no power again. Now it is begining to skip at idle, sometimes. When I begin moving from a stop, it shudders a bit. This problem has become progressively worse over time, Thanks for your help.
It sounds like the fuel pump is starting to give up. have a pressure check done to confirm. as far as the obd II port just try checking all of your fuses, its not always the lighter fuse
