Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight

1 Answer

My spedomoter and transmission works sometimes, and sometimes not. my low coolant, and low wash, and oil pressure indicators turn off and on although all fluids are full, would the computer or sensors be a culprit in this. I am most concerned with my transmission. it wont shift up, and then out of the blue it will work normally along with the spedometer.

Before we get crazy with testing how old and in what condition is the battery and charging system? Most of the items that are giving you problems are electric(not sure about speedometer is it digital?) regardless the transmission that makes it register is. Start with electrical system then we will take it from there.
Keep me posted.

HAVE CODE P0128 AND P0522 CHANGED TEMP SENSOR HELP PLEASE


P0128 indicates coolant temp lower than expected and P0522 indicates low input from the oil pressure circuit. The first one sounds like a thermostat possibly stuck open. Check coolant temperature. It should reach approx 195 degrees. The second one could be a bad OP sender, low oil pressure or some other problem on that circuit.

Car overheated random cylindar misfire after the overheat after it heats up it bogs down and eventually dies. I have done a compresion test 2 center cylander are 10-15 psi depending also little black...


if the center 2 cylinders have only 10-15lbs pressure then you need to do a wet compression test to see if it is valves or piston rings that are bad.put about tablespoon of oil into each cylinder and turn over motor and redo the compression test.if the compression goes up you have a ring problem if it doesn`t it is a valve problem.you should check the oil to see if it has a white-caramel look to it as this indicates water in the oil.(head gasket) if the coolant level is low it can be burning coolant,you should have the cooling pressure tested just in case.it could possibly be a cracked head.if it overheats because of the low compression(sometimes happens) the motor is working twice as hard(runs hotter) as the other good cylinders have to work harder to do the same amount of work,

Leak in the front of the motor, kind of looks red


If it is on the passengers side front then it could be coolant.have the cooling system pressure tested.Could be a water pump,intake gasket,or radiator hose.Depending on what motor you have.Hope this helps.Good luck.

2001 ford escape.. oil light comes on when at a stop and in drive. when i give it the gas the light turns off. i checked my oil,brake,coolant and tranny fliuds and are all fine????? no funny sounds????


this light is indicating your engine has low oil pressure sensed at idle, have the oil pressure checked with a special mechanical oil gauge, if the oil pressure checks ok then just replace the oil pressure sending unit, do this ASAP, if u do really have low pressure u can damage the engine bearings, a very expensive fix.

What is the check gauges light


CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance

I need sensors (master reset)


Open the DIS [Driver Information System] with the car running. The screen should flash all the annoying messages. Press the "Fuel" button repeatedly until the messages clear and it displays your fuel used. The press the Eng button until it shows your Oil Life, then hold down the reset button for 10 seconds. Then press Eng again till it shows your Transmission Fluid Life, and hold down the reset button for 10 seconds. As for the coolant indicator, make sure the reservoir is filled to the appropriate level. If you still get the Low Coolant message, check to make sure the coolant level sensor is plugged in (its on the reservoir) and if it is, then it may need replaced or cleaned.

Oil light keeps coming on and beeps


This is the pressure light, nothing to do with the oil needing to be being changed, you have low oil pressure being indicated, this will destroy the engine if the light is really indicating low oil pressure, have the oil pressure tested with a mechanical test guage at a shop, if the oil pressure is ok then replace the oil pressure light sending unit.
