Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

1 Answer

Car will not start. It will make a click noise when attempting.

I have a 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue with 110,000 miles.

Before the complete breakdown, the car would have to be attempted to start a couple of times every time I would start it, and the first timeI attempt to start it the engine would be making the noise that it was trying to start. Then while driving, at times, it would turn off in the middle of the road while driving. Most of the time when it would turn off while driving was when I would be slowing down and coming to a red light or stop sign. This was going on for a few months and no one could figure out why.

Then the day before it completely broke down I noticed that the car was not going as fast and that the check engine light came on. Also, I noticed a grind or rough acceleration while driving and it took longer for the car to accelerate. The next day, it would not start.

I have checked the oil, brake, and transmission fluids and everything seems good. I wonder if it could be the starter, but how does that explain the problems I had of the car turning off while driving? I haven't changed the spark plugs for a long time. Could that be part of the problem? I do appreciate your help. Thank you.

You need to read the instructions in the 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue Owner's Manual. Yes, you must now wait an hour. The first time that "INOP" will display is if you have tried it eight times and failed. After you wait an hour, you will only get three chances to get it right before INOP will be displayed again.

Driving down the road the car will shut off 1998 Olds Intrigue. Sometimes it will start right back up. Other times it has to set for awhile like to cool down or something. Other times it will not start...


Next time this happens, check to see if the SECURITY light shows up on the dash. The security that comes on that vehicle can actually kill the motor if its not comminicating properly.

If there is a light, check out this link http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Loud noises are not good in an automatic transmission. I suggest you have this looked at professionally before something serious happens and you are stranded.

Thanks for your visit today.

The battery is dead. I don't know why it dies so quickly. I have the same problem. If my car sits for two days without driving it then it dies. My car was on the side of the road for three days and it wouldn't start. Something is draining the battery.

quite possibly it may be taking a little while to build fuel pressure. next time try cycling the key on and off 3 or 4 times with out cranking the vehicle to allow the pump to build pressure the try to star it up if it starts right up then your problem is it's just taking time to build pressure
