Question about Oldsmobile Delta 88

1 Answer

Why won't my 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 start?

Started this morning, put in reverse and died. Pumped the gas the try and restart and nothing. Just had fuel pump replaced, timing adjusted, and a new kick down cable put on. Also when looking at the carb the flaps don't move when pushing the pedal.

SOURCE: Jetta has no gas pedal pressure

If this car has a carb, the most common problem is the auto choke mechanism get siezed/ gummed up. Remove tha carb plenum in the morning before starting. Depress the accelerator pedal and check that the flap on top of the carb has closed.

SOURCE: 88 thunderbird turbo coupe fuel pump

have you checked all fuses under the hood? have you checked the fuel pump relay? you may be able to swap the fuel pump relay with amother relay in the fuse box.are you getting power into and out of the reset switch? from there it goes to the fuel pump. if power is getting to the fuel pump and it has a good ground, the the pump is bad.

MY OLDSMOBILE 1984 ROYALE 88 HAS A CONSTANT TAPPING SOUND. THIS MORNING ENGINE WAS SHAKING A LITTLE BIT. WHAT IS WRONG


I have the same car, and I had to change the crankshaft and oil pump. while doing so, the 3piece timing set had to be replaced and the gaskets for the timing set, oil pump and water pump had to be replaced....along with the oil filter and oil. it's basically rebuilding the bottom of the engine.
