Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Achieva

1 Answer

My 1997 Olds Achieva fires up and then dies immediately

I changed the fuel filter, and hasn't seem to help, and now the car won't turn over at all. I was curious also where the spark plugs are located so I can check them. It quite working on a particularly cold morning, but it has never had trouble starting in the mornings during previous winters. What are the symptoms of a bad starter.

Yes or the run relay. Hold the palm of your hand over them all. You'll feel it tick when you turn the key to start. Swap it out $15 or less

Car wont start without a jump all lights on dash are on it starts then dies right away on 97 olds achieva


Seems you may have more than one problem. A few questions you must answer first. If you have to jump it to start it,then your battery is dead are you have a draw draining the battery. Now if it dies right away look at your security light and see if it is on. Probably your security system is thinking someone stole the battery and shuts the fuel system down. Change the battery and Google the reset security system on 1997 Olds Achieva and you probably be set to go

1997 olds achieva...replaced the ignition switch now it starts but immediately shuts down. I can repeat this by turning the key off and re-cranking. just won't keep running??


Could be any of the following:
New switch it is defective
You did not get all the wires back on
A wire broke while you were changing out the switch
Bad fuse
Loose connecting in the circuitry (hardest one to solve)

After coming out of walmart i started my 96 olds achieva started just fine as i was talking to my girlfriend and putting my seatbelt on it quit. now i wont start and stay running. its starts and dies....


I assume there is gas in it. First thing i would check, or change is the MAF. Mass air flow sensor. If they are faulty, that's typically what an engine will do. Start, and stop. An auto wrecker is probably your best bet. Cheapest anyway.

Do you remember the last time the fuel filter was change? If you don't, do that first, it could be pluged. If that don't work or is not an issue, have a fuel pressure test done to see if fuel pump is weak, and ready to go out, or already has.
