I have an 86 Oldsmobile delta 88 and it has no power it slows down really fast when u start to go up a hill how can i fix that


Check your inline fuel filter. If the filter is half full of gunk, some fuel flows but when you start up a hill, there is a call for more fuel from your pump and this additional flow causes the gunk to become packed against your outlet stopping all of the fuel flow.Changing the fuel filter solves this.

electrical is the weakest link-you may have a computer with issues and before replacin a reprogram should be considered--what did vehicle scan tell you? Data recorders are often placed in cars that show no codes--Older cars can have solenoids and components that heat up and stop engine--if theres a distributer cap-inspec for corrosion

Recently bought '96 olds delta 88, slow starting after 1 week of driving, previous owenr replaced fuel filter, where is the location of the fuel filter?


Along the frame rail under the car you should see the fuel lines on the driver side. Along the line around the front driver door area there should be a metal barrel, this is the fuel filter.

Hi there I have a 1988 delta 88 the problem is that when I start it up and drive it wants to stall out but when the temperature rises it runs alot better not to sure if this is the problem I have replaced...


Could be several issues that are common with GM cars :
  1. Bad MAP sensor
  2. Bad TPS (Throttle Position Sensor)
These are the most common areas that would cause the problem you have.

Check the spark on each plug wire with a calibrated spark tester.One can be bought at most parts stores.If two plug wires that are next to each other are bad then replace coil pack.There may also be a bad ignition module.Also check the crankshaft position sensor.

MORACHIS 1996 88 OLDSMOBILE STALLS


The problem sounds like the solenoid that locks up the torque converter. This will not set a code or turn on the check engine light. The car will restart each time after it stalls. This will happen when you are comming to a stop or turning a corner. At times, you can start the car in neutral but when you put it in drive or reverse, it will again stall.

This can also happen after you have driven the car and parked it. When you restart the car, it may stall when you try to drive it because the solenoid is still locked from when you pulled into the parking spot.

Try to free it up by driving the car about 32 mph in drive (drive with the square around the D) where the overdrive and lock up torque converter will work. At 32 - 34 mph, pull the shifter down to the next Drive (D without the box around it) and you should feel the bump of the torque converter unlocking. Then put it back into the upper drive location and you will feel it lock up agian. Repeat this about 20 times and see if this does not help. These can start becomming mechanically "Sticky" and cycling them 10 - 30 times can help.

There is also a 6 wire connector on the forward (front of the car) side of the transmission. This connector might be dirty. Clean it with electrical contact cleaner (spray type) and reconnect it to the transmission. This connector is probably not the problem but worth lookign at anyway.

There is also a small port in the valve body of the transmission that if plugged, it can cause this problem. I feel it is most likely a "Sticky" soleniod that locks up the torque converter and makes the car stall just like comming to a stop in a standard transmission car without pushing in the clutch.

Good luck,
