Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight

1 Answer

This problem just started on my car also

Car cranks fine just doesnt want to turn over. p/w and p/s stop working for about an hour. And then car starts up and runs fine. Just put new plugs, wires and new coil pack in it.

    thinking maybe its a short somewhere. Messed around with it today and I'll try to start and have spark to the coil packs but the fuel pump wont start up, and sometimes i have a fuel and no spark.

Cranks strongly, but won't turn over / start.


it might be the fuel pump take the output hose off of it and crank the engine and see if fuel comes out of the pump if it does the fuel pump is not the probelem. if it doesnt come out or if it slowly comes out than you need a new fuel pump

I just put an alternator in and new battery. I drove to work and every thing was fine. Four hours later when I tried cranking my car it started up normal but as I was pulling out the drive way it stopped....


Charge your Battery and if it still cranks over then you can rule out a starter But if it does'ent crank its most likey ur starter..... but it could also be that its not getting fuel so also check your fuel filter

Starts fine most of the time but once in awhile it will crank but not start, never shuts off while driving it. I drove it 30 miles one day made 2 stops and it started fine then I stoped for gas and it...


Could be your fuel pump starting to go. When it doesnt start, open your gas cap and listen for a whining noise when the key is turned onto the on position. This will indicate the fuel pump is working. If you dont hear that noise, then it most probably is the fuel pump.

Wont start when warm


If no lights (including headlights) come on at all and the car won't turn over you need to make sure the battery cable connections are clean and tight. If you meant you don't get any warning lights on the dash then I would guess your mechanics are wrong (it probably isn't having the staring problem when they are looking at it) about not getting spark. Replace the crank position sensor as it can cause that no hot start problem and it will get worse to where the car stalls when hot and won't restart. A new crank position sensor should solve your problem. Get a few quotes before replacing it because some garages overcharge for working on SAAB's.

My daughter's 1990 Honda Civic occasionally will not start. It cranks fine, but it will not turn over. Usually, if she waits anywhere from 5-15 minutes, trying to start it every few minutes, it will crank...


if the car just wine's when starting like it would normally and nothng is happening...Check for fuel, either find the fuel pressure relief valve near the rear of the engine, and depress the valve stem (fuel should hit the roof of hood) if not then its a fuel problem, try this a couple times, but turning the key over, and listen for noise from the gas t ank to see if the pump is actuating.. if you hear the noise while just turn the keyy to acc, not start plz comment back that you hear it , but its still doesnt start....
hope this fix's-ya!
