Need to have a compression test, possible a valve burnt out or not working (stuck open)? Take rocker cover off, turn engine over by hand, see if you can see movement in the valves on NO1 cylinder

Where are the oxygen sensors located on a 97 olds acheiva? I bought two. One has longer wire than the other. Which one goes where?

The sensors screw into threaded flanges on the exhaust pipe. There will be one before the catalytic converter called the "upstream" sensor. It will have the short wire. The second, or "downstream"sensor has the long wire and is located after the catalytic converter. You can purchase a special tool for removing the sensors. If the sensors are positioned so as to allow the use of regular hand tools, you may be able to change them without the special tools. It is best to change the sensors while the exhaust pipe is cold. A hot exhaust pipe will cause the threaded flange to expand, making removal more difficult.

Im trying to locate the starter on a 1996 oldsmobile acheiva

take it to a local muffler shop, ask them to put your car up on a lift when they get a free moment and point out the starter to you. access is almost always easier when the car is up on a lift. starters are all in the same place, parallel to the crankshaft, and bolted into the transmission bell housing. if you think it is bad, give them forty bucks and they will most likely swap it for you, just takes a few minutes if you have the tools and the car is up on a lift.
