Had the same problem, just need to get a dealer key with the chip in it.

another way is to test the resistance of your key and add the corresponding resistor inline with your ignition.

Your "question" is a declarative statement, not a question. If you meant to ask...Why can't I start my car with a key I had made in the hardware store?...the answer is factory automobile keys have a small circuit chip in them to prevent simple key copying and car theft. You will need to get a proper key blank with chip from you car dealer and get it cut to the proper profile. Then the chip will be detected by the car's computer and the car will start.

SOURCE: 1998 oldsmobile regency oil capacity

4.5 quarts of oil including the filter. that is assuming you have the 3.8 lliter v6 engine.which is standard. you can put about 1/4 quart of oil in the filter and then screw it on the oil filter housing. this will help eliminate a dry start condition when you crank the engine over after changing the oil and filter. put the remaining 4 quarts in, run the engine for 30 seconds and then check the oil level to top it off.

I have a key with the chip but my car wont start, what should I do?


Is the battery in the key easily replaceable? If not you should bring it to whoever sold you the key and see if they can give you a new one or replace the battery if needed.

How much does it cost to replace an ignition key for a 1991 Ninety-Eight Oldsmobile Regency?


It depends on your area. You can replace the ignition switch portion yourself. However the key lock has a chip on it that tells your cars computer it is ok to start. The dealer will have to re-program your cars computer to tell it that that key lock cylinder is ok to start the car.

My 1998 oldsmobile regency only goes 105 mph


is that a problem? I believe that is the top speed until the ecm cuts fuel to the engine. mainly because of the speed rating of the tires.
