Engine light stays on, low coolant light stays on , recently had a plastic housing replaced that was leaking, it was linked to thermostat, tranmission coolant,heater ect. Had the thermostat replaced also. Level of coolant is fine, does't overheat anymore, but now the starter wants to spin a couple of times and then it starts. The car has no rust, would like to hang on to it

97 oldsmobile achieva keeps running hot with hissing sounds


Is the coolant level staying full/constant? Could just be a stuck closed thermostat...the 3.4 motor is known for bad water pumps...a low cost repair on your Olds...check for leaks...try (when engine cold) be sure coolant in the radiator is full...may need to bleed the coolant system at the bleeder valve...(trapped air)

My achieva is leaking oil at the front of the engine. i cant see exactly but its above the oil filter some where. Where is it coming from and how do i fix it


It could be coming from the oil filter itself. Sometimes when changing the filter, people can overlook the fact that the gasket from the old filter may have stayed on the engine block. Then when the new one is installed the gaskets double up and it doesn't allow the filter to seal. Causing the leak.

97 ACHIEVA INTERIOR LAMPS STAYS ON WHEN DRIVEING


1) Make sure the light switch is in the proper position (Auto or Off) first! (My wife drove around for a week like this before realizing she had the light switch on ON).
2) Make sure you don't have any "door ajar" indications/ check the door switches to be sure they are working.

Need to replace motor and transmission in a 97 Pontiac Grand AM G


Changing from a 1992 to a 1997 < WILL NOT Be EASY , As you must HAVE the ENTIRE ENGINE WIRING HARNESS , And ALSO the ECM for the older Set up. In the "5" YEARS there Were MANY CHANGES to the ENGINE Components= SENSORS and ACTUATERS .
its just a BETTER IDEA to Stay Whitin a year or 2 when Swaping ENGINES. SIZE OF SENSORS ETC. MAKES IT DIFICULT

Where is the radio fuse in a 1995 OLDS ACHIEVA?


In the underside of the dash, under the steering wheel (a bit left of where the column meets the dash). It should have a label saying "FUSES". You press it, than pull it open.

Do you remember the last time the fuel filter was change? If you don't, do that first, it could be pluged. If that don't work or is not an issue, have a fuel pressure test done to see if fuel pump is weak, and ready to go out, or already has.
