While I've not worked on your particular car, most cars of that vintage have a similar arrangement. Under the distributor, there's a bolt/nut that holds a clamping part tight. Loosen that and the distributor should turn. Pull it out.

SOURCE: location of oil filter in 1997 oldsmobile delta 88 LS?

Well, in my 1989 Olds 88, the oil filter is just above the right swingarm for the wheel. It's an interesting reach from underneath, and the oil drips directly onto the frame of the car, but that's where the filter should be.

I believe they use the same 3800 (3.8L V6) engine up through 1997 or 1998...so you should be able to find it there. Hope that helps!

SOURCE: Delta 88 oldsmobile speedometer going out

HI. If your speedometer needle doesn't move, or if it flutters, your speedometer cable may be bad.

To determine if it is the cable, disconnect the cable casing from the transmission and from the back of the speedometer on the instrument panel. Draw the cable out from inside of the casing. The cable looks like a twisted piece or wire. If the cable is broken or if it is dry or brittle. It probably needs to be replaced. If the cable is intact and the same length as the cable casing, the problem is likely the speedometer head.

I would also advise to check the speedometer gear as well.

The speedometer gear is located on the output shaft. Inspect it for damage.

This gear rarely suffers damage because the gear from the speedometer that meshes with it is usually made of a softer material. Sometimes, the speedometer gear on the main-shaft is replaceable. A clip can hold it in place or it can be a pressed fit. A special puller is available to pull these gears on the car.
