Question about Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1 Answer

Only turns over partially

I just replaced the starter on my 1998 oldsmobile intrigue. When i try to crank it it will turn over partially then stops all of a sudden like something just grabbed the motor. I can turn the fly wheel with a screw driver and it turns easy for a while then it will get hard for just a little bit but i can get past that point and it gets easy again. This is about the best i can explain my problem any help would be appreiciated

I have a 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue and when I crank the car it catches, but there is a loud, metal grinding noise that I hear after. It started all of a sudden and when I pulled over, turned the car off and...

Can't be sure, but it sure sounds like a starter drive that is not disengaging from the ring gear. You need to have this checked, as a new starter is one thing, although not cheap anymore, however a damaged ring gear on your flex plate or fly wheel( depending on auto or manual trans) requires engine or transmission removal for replacement!

Driving down the road the car will shut off 1998 Olds Intrigue. Sometimes it will start right back up. Other times it has to set for awhile like to cool down or something. Other times it will not start...

Next time this happens, check to see if the SECURITY light shows up on the dash. The security that comes on that vehicle can actually kill the motor if its not comminicating properly.

If there is a light, check out this link

On a 12 year old car the fuel pump may be weak. First replace the fuel filter as it may be partially clogged. If that does not solve the problem a fuel pressure test will verify the operation of the pump.

1998 oldsmobile sometimes starts

Battery could be not holding a consistent charge. If not, Voltage regulator, starter motor or starter solenoid need replacing....Bad wire connections to all 3 also possible. Voltage regulator should be least expensive to try through process of elimination
