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.

Check engine light on and reduced engine power i didnt warm my car up could that be the problem once i got home and cut the motor off and restated it the power came back and reduced engine light went off...


Take your TB to Autozone or a parts store that offers a free check engine light check. All they do is tell you what code your check engine light is throwing. Get this code, and we can help from there.

CAR CUTS OFF BUT NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON, BUT IT STARTS BACK UP.


Check all of the ground leads in your engine bay. I had the same problem on my 240sx. A ground lead that connected to the valve cover was loose. It just happened to be the ground for the ecu.

5.9 DIESEL ENGINE CUTS OFF WHEN DRIVING


Hi

From what I can gather, the engine cuts out and then the check engine light comes on, not the other way around, check engine light and then cut out?

If you switch on the ignition but do not start the engine, you will see that the check engine light is on. It won't go out until you start the engine.

When the engine cuts out, it is just as though you have switched on the ignition without starting the engine, the key is in the exact same position, and therefor the check engine light comes on purely and simply because the engine isn't running, not because it has sensed a problem, hence you have no fault codes, its perfectly normal.

If, however, the light comes on then the engine cuts out, then the reason for the lack of codes could be a short term electrical failure. If the power to the ECM were briefly cut then the codes would be erased immediately, but this would have to be a complete failure because there is a KAM (Keep Alive Memory) wire, which supplies permanent power to the ECM if I'm not mistaken. A good candidate for a complete failure is a bad main ground cable (loose or broken).

Wiring problems a just the worst ever to trace.

Just a thought to hopefully point you in the right direction.

Very best regards
