  2. Remove the starter-to-engine bolts, then carefully lower the starter from the vehicle.

Not starting?
If not, try this. Turn the key to on. Security light blinking? If yes, let it blink for 10 minutes + it will stop blinking. Remove key, then insert key and start car. Computers went bad on these often.

Oil light is on after I just changed the oil I used 10w 30 instead of 5w 30


If this is a 88 model,the weight of the oil is correct,if it is a 98 model,then it needs the 5w 30 ,fill the oil filter up with oil before installing,see if that fixes the problem.

Where is the petcock located on a 1999 oldsmobile


Most are difficult to get to and so many don't work correctly that it it's almost silly to even use it. Far easier is to simply remove lower hose from radiator. It works better and faster. Just be careful though...Don't do hot or you may get an unwanted scalding bath!!

Yes, the key,ignition, or Theft Deterrent Module is not funtioning properly. You can start changing these out 1 by 1, or bypass the whole system for about the cost of a new key. This link explains and will help you.

1999 oldsmobile delta battery changed but won't power on


If everything else checks out Ok in the ignition system (electrical) and if the engine and transmission turn freely,that sound like you might have starter drag.Check to see if you have good connections at the starter.I know its new but check your battery for 12 volts,good connections,ect.
