SOURCE: engine check light is on

does the car buck on the highway when accelerating under a slight load?
i owned one of these exact cars,3.8 litre.
2 problems. one,the baffles braek in the gas tank,and if you run 1/4 tank or less it will stall in a turn.
mine it was a right turn.
2nd problem,the EGR valve was stuck and it would surge or "buck" on the freeway.
replaced the egr (exhaust gas return)valve and it ran like new.
if the egr valve is code 42,(i do not have the manual in front of me) you have found the problem
check the egr,it can cause the problems you have.

SOURCE: MORACHIS 1996 88 OLDSMOBILE STALLS

The problem sounds like the solenoid that locks up the torque converter. This will not set a code or turn on the check engine light. The car will restart each time after it stalls. This will happen when you are comming to a stop or turning a corner. At times, you can start the car in neutral but when you put it in drive or reverse, it will again stall.

This can also happen after you have driven the car and parked it. When you restart the car, it may stall when you try to drive it because the solenoid is still locked from when you pulled into the parking spot.

Try to free it up by driving the car about 32 mph in drive (drive with the square around the D) where the overdrive and lock up torque converter will work. At 32 - 34 mph, pull the shifter down to the next Drive (D without the box around it) and you should feel the bump of the torque converter unlocking. Then put it back into the upper drive location and you will feel it lock up agian. Repeat this about 20 times and see if this does not help. These can start becomming mechanically "Sticky" and cycling them 10 - 30 times can help.

There is also a 6 wire connector on the forward (front of the car) side of the transmission. This connector might be dirty. Clean it with electrical contact cleaner (spray type) and reconnect it to the transmission. This connector is probably not the problem but worth lookign at anyway.

There is also a small port in the valve body of the transmission that if plugged, it can cause this problem. I feel it is most likely a "Sticky" soleniod that locks up the torque converter and makes the car stall just like comming to a stop in a standard transmission car without pushing in the clutch.

Good luck,

98/88 delta oldsmoble cuts off while driving what could it be


The warning lights on the dash will come on when the engine dies.
If it dies and starts up like you turned the key it could be a relay or other electrical problem. May be tough to find if you can't test components while it is not starting.
I assume the check engine light is not on when the engine is running.

I have a 1995 oldsmobile 88 and the computer needs to be reset.


Hi Dave.

You can perform a reset of main control module (ECM) disconnecting the battery terminals for a couple of minutes. That will reset the check engine light until the problem occurs again. Make sure that you have the stereo anti theft code if needed.

The proper way to reset the DTC codes is using an OBDII scanner. The job can be done at the dealer place or at any authorized garage for a small fee (half hour labor). In US the scan and reset can be done for free at Autozone. If possible go to the nearest Autozone, ask to do a code scanning take note of codes and ask to reset the ECM.

Finally, you can reset the codes at home using a scanner tool like this:OBDII Scanner - U480.
