I have a 1991 Oldsmobile 98 with a casette stuck completely inside. I want to get it out. It makes an awful sound each time the radio is turned on or off. Thanks, Wes

    I want to get the casette out and save the radio. I prefer that the cassette player continue working, but would be happy just to have the cassette removed.

You are going to have to remove the radio from the dash and then take the top cover off the radio chassis to gain access to the tape stuck inside.
Here is the radio removal procedure:
You need to remove the plastic part of the dashboard that covers it. To do that remove the two small bolts at the very bottom (there just to the sides of the ashtray drawer and down a couple inches further), then pull the wooden looking trim (at the top of the panel) loose that runs all the way across the front of the car, it just clips in so pry it loose, just be careful not to break it. The top of the panel just clips in too, but it's not near as tight as the trim, so pull out at the bottom of the panel and it should come right off. Once that's off the stereo is held in by 3 screws. Take those out pull the stereo forward, disconnect the 32 pin connector and the antenna, and it's removed

    If u remove the cassette from the radio as I instructed the radio will work again, the cassette when it loads hits a switch that turns off the radio so the tape can play, the problem of the cassette is almost certainly due to a defective rubber drive belt, it always is, these go bad from age and Ozone in the air.

I just bought a 1991 oldsmobile 98 touring sedan put in a new batterie an bolts cleaned terminel wires car started an ran fine drove for half a day or so an now dosent have enough power to turn the moter...

Sounds like the alternator is not charging the battery - - if you can charge the battery with a booster I would check the alternator output.
Could be a faulty fuseable link at the starter or corrosion inside one of the battery cables too.

The exhaust/muffler is rusted through and falling apart on my 1991 oldsmobile bravada and it is running rough,sounds awful, and spits and sputters when i try to accellerate

It sounds like you have a hole somewhere in your exhaust. More than likely your muffler. I would recommend replacing it. You would have to cut out your existing muffler and clamp on a new one. You could also take it to an exhaust shop and get a new one put on (the easier one). Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

It helps to state what radio you have.....So did you find the fuse and its good?and getting power or just tried to find it? Try fuse 11 and 13 for the Nav. Fuse 8 and 9 inside and fuse 4 under hood for BOSE SYSTEM. Fuse 8, 9 under dash and 48 under hood for non BOSE

No sound from speakers

Which is selected, FM/AM, CD, TAPE? Make sure you have a proper selection and are receiving a signal.
I would clean the front radio panel to be sure none of the buttons are being stuck by dirt, etc.

98 Deville casette/radio stereo won't play after swapping to CD/Casette/radio

Since the replacement is a different one from the one you are replacing, the car wiring harness is probably different from the one needed for the new radio. This is a really important difference if the new one is part of a Bose system and that is not the option installed in your car. The best way to check is for you to identify the option codes for each radio and go to and compare the wiring diagrams.
