Question about 1989 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight Royale
I have a 1989 oldsmobile delta 88 v6 3.8L with 412000k (free car from sister). Now I am not to smart when it comes to cars so be gentle. When the car has been parked for a while,I'll go out and turn the car over and it will crank and it sounds fine. However, it doesn't fire up it almost seems like the fuel isn't getting there, I have to crank and crank and crank, push down on the pedal a few times and then crank and crank till it finally sounds closer and closer to starting then it fires up. and I have to let it run for a while cause if I don't then it tries to die on me if i rev it or put it into gear. And the other thing is when I am trying to turn it over I can hear a huming comin from the back end, is that my fuel pump?Spark plugs work, fuel filter new, and regular visits to the oil lube guys.
The older car usually need few pump and hold the gas pedal down to turn over. The timing on these car very critical. if you can try to time it to exact what the manufacture spec, change to a better plugs, change all of the filter as they need it. The other thing is make sure all of the vacumm hose at good, not cracked or leaking. that should make car run better but never is going to be as good as new.
