Ours did that and in real cold weather could not boost it. Replaced the spark plugs and plug wires and no trouble since. Depends when the plugs were replaced before. If you replace the wires take one off at a time and replace it with a new one. Some people take them all off at once then they are in trouble.

My 1989 Oldsmobile 98 won't start when its cold outside.


Check fuel pump pressure and the fuel pump relay . On your vehicle the oil pressure switch will allow the vehicle to start if fuel pump relay fails . The problem with this is oil when cold doesn't flow very well and could take sometime to reach 4-6 PSI to close contacts inside . Watch this video on Fuel Pump Electrical Circuits Description and Operation ! When it get's to GM vehicles . Your OLDS is a GM vehicle , if you are not aware of it . Fuel Pump Electrical Circuits Description and Operation First he explains Chrysler, dodge , jeep then ford , then GM ! Start at 14 min. 50 sec.

The truck starts up for a few seconds then dies?my truck is 1989 isuzu trooper ,the weather is very cold right now , is this a fuel pressure problem?


It actually could be a number of things. I need to ask you more questions to narrow my prognosis down. You mentioned the weather being cold, lately. How cold? Freezing?When was your last tune up and do you eventually get the car started after trying for a while? If you do how does it run?

Replaced fuel pump & filter. relay is working fine. car still want hold when you crank it.


My 89 Cutlass had a strange starting problem too...During cold weather she would crank, but she would not start...I could heat up the top of the engine with a hair dryer and she would start....Shop finally fixed her, replaced the COIL, the old coil was no bueno in cold weather!!!!
