IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, IT IS ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE ENGINE, NEAR THE FIREWALL.(BELOW THE BOTTOM OF THE WINDSHIELD) I THINK YOU SHOULD CHECK IT WHEN THE ENGINE IS NOT RUNNING. BECAUSE OF THE LOCATION OF THE RESERVOIR. HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. BEST OF LUCK.PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED.

1988 oldsmobile delta 88 won't drive forward


This is probably the transmission. Check the transmission fluid level to make sure it is at the appropriate level. If not add transmission fluid to reach the appropriate level. If this does not work then the gears may be burnt out in the transmission.
