Question about 1997 Oldsmobile LSS

Open Question

1997 oldsmobile LSS with 3800. Starts and runs great in the morning, drive 20 miles to work. Trouble starting after work, but will start. Leave work, run errands, stopping here and there after the 20 mile drive. Won't start. Tracked it down to air in the fuel line, by using the bleeder valve before the injectors. Lots of air, some fuel. hit it a few times, then the key a few to get the fuel pump going, and repeat until good gas flow. Starts right up then. Also will start and then stall if spraying starting fluid into air cleaner. I'm thinking something at the fuel pump on the input side.

Try checking the exhaust flow when someone else is pushing down on the gas petal.The farther the petal gos down,the more exhaust should be coming out. I replaced my catalitic convertor at 44000 miles, it was clogged. I had them install a high flow type.

Is the Service Engine Soon (or Check Engine) light illuminated on the instrument panel? If so, then have someone pull the codes and post them back here. Autozone will do this for you at no cost.Caution: don't purchase any parts after reading the codes on their recommendation! If no codes, then suspect either a bad crankshaft sensor or camshaft sensor. There are other possibilities too, but these are primary. I have seen MANY bad crank sensors do exactly what your describe without setting a code.

Drivability problems after driving 20 - 30 miles


Try changing or switching out the distributor. Most likely getting hot and shuts down. Does it crank but no start whenever it stops? May only start when it cools down again.

electrical is the weakest link-you may have a computer with issues and before replacin a reprogram should be considered--what did vehicle scan tell you? Data recorders are often placed in cars that show no codes--Older cars can have solenoids and components that heat up and stop engine--if theres a distributer cap-inspec for corrosion

After 20 miles of driving it shifts late and hard from 1st to 2nd


many things can cuase this, the first thing to do is have the computer scaned, there should be codes it there, these codes will give a general idea of the problem. you should also check the trany fluid level,(engine warm,in park, level ground). there may be a few things to check, the distributor cap and rotor, also the wires. you may have weak fuel preasure,or even a bad module, so start by having the codes pulled and will go from there,also it doesnt start now,check the fuel preasure and also check for spark at the plugs.
