Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight

I have a 92 olds regency elite. The ignition

I have a 92 olds regency elite. The engine runs rough when it gets warm and the ignition modual keeps going out. I have replaced it three times and seems to fix it for a little while but it keeps acting up after a few thousand miles. Is it possible the engine is running to warm and causing the modual to go out?

1991 Ford F-350 runs rough at cold start, dies if gas peddle depressed?


because the combustion inside the engine is going wrong the quantity of air getting inside is not the needed quantity maybe less than or more in cold will cause such problem once the engine warm up than the engine temperature is up you will not find this problem because the point of firing will be near

I have a 95 oldsmobile 98 regency elite I cant find where the knock sensor goes I have a haynes manual but where it shows it wont go


Well, for starters, your problem got posted under 1985 Oldsmobile 98 - then you said it was a 95 Oldsmobile 98 Regency Elite (HUGE difference between 85 and 95)...then it would be REALLY nice to know which engine we are talking about.

I'll just go with what you said last: 1995 Oldsmobile Regency Elite (Two engine possibilities)

If you have the 3.8L Supercharged engine (VIN CODE "1") it is on the left side of the engine near the oil filter.

If you have the non-supercharged 3.8L (VIN CODE "K") there are TWO of them. One is near the oil filter and the other one is in about the same location on the other side of the engine block.

Please also note that MOST fault codes for knock sensors are not caused by the knock sensors themselves. (they do fail, but it is very rare.) Usually there is either a wiring problem to the knock sensor, or the engine has internal problems causing a "knocking" or "ticking" noise which causes the engine computer to "think" that there is a problem with pre-detonation causing an "ignition ping". The code sets when the computer has retarded the ignition timing as far as it can and the "knock" or "ping" does not go away....usually it doesn't go away because it is not caused by ignition timing. The knock sensor is just doing its job and reporting the knock. It does not know the difference between a knock caused by ignition and a knock caused by internal engine problems.

Can you tell me when I should change the timing chain on my 1995 Olds 98 Regency Elite? It has the 3.8 L series II V6. I currently have 116,000 miles. Also, are there performance mufflers with...


If it has a timing CHAIN, I wouldn't bother replacing it until you need a valve job or engine rebuild. The timing chain should last quite a while, especially since it is being lubricated as the engine runs.
However, if it has a timing BELT, at 116,000 miles, you're past due.

My 91 oldsmobile 98 runs rough in idle but when driving run smooth.


Rough idle is a very common problem on 4 cylinders, but I believe the 98 Regency has a 6 cylinder in it, right?

Sometimes the coil packs get iffy, and sometimes the EGR Valve gets a leak in it causing a rough idle.

When the accelerator pedal is depressed, it can change things so that the engine seems to run smoothly.

However, I would look for codes to see if anything intermittent is occurring in the engine that may need attention.

The OBD-I scanner can help to diagnose the problem, if anything is out of specifications on the engine in question.

The owner will have to find a technician that has such a scanner.

92 olds cutlass cruiser runs rough when i start it


Check your electric choke. Unplug it and start the car. If it makes no difference that may be your problem. If it does make a difference once you un plug it that may be your problem. If it were a sensor it would not get better after 15 minutes. However if it were the choke it would get better as the engine warms to operating temperature.

Engine keeps running


check your ignition modual might need to be adjusted or replaced or could be a bad wire grounding out either in at the modual harness itself or in the wireing.
