Question about Oldsmobile 88
You cannot find this problem unless it is occurring.
When it happens you need to check for spark and fuel pressure. If you have spark and fuel pressure you need to check for injector signal.
If those things check OK you need to test the temperature sensor (the one that tells the computer how warm the engine is) If this sensor is faulty the computer could be forcing a rich condition and flooding the engine.
There lots of things that can cause this problem, faulty wiring, computer, crank sensor, ignition module, etc. but you need to track down which system is causing the problem first.
Many of these things will not set a trouble code, but some of them will. Have your car scanned to see if something points to a faulty part or system.
Intermittent problems can be the most time consuming problems to repair. You cannot verify a problem or a repair, you can only guess until it becomes a hard failure.
