First Take a good Ride on the Hiway then check if the car stear left or right then aply brake the let stearing go see if the car pull lef or right... then stop conpletely then aply the brake and put the car on low gear then push on the gas pedal for sleping transmission
come back home then open the hood check for oil color then smell if the motor smel some swetness like leaking prestone ..Then check put hour hand wile the motor run on the end off the muffler the check your hand if it a white ring inside off our hand it ok ..But if it black it losting little bit oil ...if it smoke dont take the car... Also chek the Radiator it-self if it not plug full of debris and also check if the the heater work good ..Sometime the Heater Rad rust and it not to fun to change... unplug the positif cable see if alternator work fine

The only thing you need to check for is the rear frame of the car just after where the springs are,if they are not rotted then i would say the car is a decent buy,the drive train is almost bullet proof but the rear frame is a known failure area.They are a great car otherwise.Also,with the amount of miles on the car you may need an alternator[$180] soon,but that will be about the extent of your problems.

Key won't open trunk for a 95 oldsmobile cutless supreme


Hi,
Do the rear seats fold down? If so, crawl in there may be a lever/latch to open the trunk from inside.

Take the car to a locksmith and they can fix the lock.

GOOD MORNING! SINCERELY I VERY MUCH APPRECIATE YOUR AUTOMOBILE KNOWLEDGE YOU ARE ABLE TO OFFER US! MY 20 y-o Son, ANDREW HAS A YOUNG MAN HE WORKS AT SONIC WITH WHO IS COAXING HIM TO BUY THIS 1993...


For a number of reasons, I'd stay away from it-it is not going to be great on gas, if it currently has no cam sensor, how can you determine if it runs properly? Although 136,000 miles is not a lot for a 93, if it has not been taken care of (oil changes, tuneups, trans maintanence, etc.) it wil just be a money pit. At the very least, the car should be running, and inspected (which would necessitate replacing the missing muffler). Ask that the car be inspected after the muffler and cam sensor are repaired by a mechanic of your choice, that should probably open your son's eyes to the condition of the vehicle, good or bad. I have a lot of experience with cars, and buying a 'beater' or project car is always a gamble, especially if it does not run. A car that does not run is generally worth scrap only, so $550 it too high.
