Question about 1996 Oldsmobile LSS
Depending on where you bought the spark plug wires/plugs you could have a defective one even though they are new. I bought plugs/wires from O'Reillly's and it turned out the plug wires were bad even though they were new. Car ran even worse than before I did the work. Napa autoparts sells the best plug wires I have ever used Belden Maxx....Other than that you could have an ignition coil that has gone bad. They should run about $30 each and are not that hard to change out on that vehicle. See if someone can test those for you. Also you may want to pull each spark plug out and make sure that it is gapped properly. You can call any parts place or dealer and ask them what is the spark plug gap for that vehicle. Even if they say they are pre-gapped from the factory it is essential to always check this yourself and make sure that each one is gapped properly. Hope this helps you.
