Question about 1998 Oldsmobile 88
My son has had to have his fuel pump replaced twice on his 98 Olds 88. Both times after a few weeks or a week or two he has trouble starting the car. He turns the key in the ignition and it takes awhile before it will start. Both times after replacing the fuel pump it worked great. But now it is about 2-1/2 weeks after the second replacement and its doing it again. I know there has to be something else the garage is missing. It seems to make no difference if the car has been sitting for awhile or not. Help. Hi, I have a 95 Olds Royale. To make the long story short, my car stalled while it was running many weeks ago. The mechanic changed the fuel filter and replaced the wires and plugs. Few days later, it stalled again. He replaced the idler air valves that time. He told me the fuel pump is about to go down next because the fuel pressure was low. I can start my car without my problem, but sometimes when I wanted to give it more fuel, the pedal was stuck little bit and I had to press it hard to give more gas. Secondly, it stalled ocassionally when the car is going slow on uphill slope. I need a second opinion on this problem. Thanks.
I know it sounds crazy but check to see if the floor mat is blocking gas pedal. I have seen this alot in my 30 years as a master tech.the way you describe it sounds like all the other cust of mine that had the same issue. hope that is all it is. good luck and let me know.
