Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue
I have a 1999 oldsmobile intrigue gl. It has been starting hard for a month or so but sometimes it starts fine. The weather does not effect whether it starts hard. Also something underneath the car thats in the middle or the back of the car rattles when driving. It will start rattling after a couple minutes of driving but only when i go over a bump. After a fews minutes of driving when the car shifts gears the rattle noise is heard. I have looked under the car and checked to see if anything is loose and cannot find anything. I do not know what to check for both problems. I do not know a lot about cars. If you could help that would be very appreciated
I have had both of these situations happen to me and they are completely unrelated.
The Rattle: If you have the factory wheels with the olds center caps, take them off. My husband tightened every screw on the car until he took the center caps off my wheels, and lo and behold, NO MORE RATTLE.
The Hard Starting: If you notice it starts hard and the RPMs are high, your throttle cable is sticking. I have this exact same problem with my 99 Intrigue GLS. The only way I can get it to quit is start and restart the car until it quits. Obviously not the best solution, but I would check your cable first before trying anything else.
