Question about 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado

1 Answer

My 1988 Oldmobile Toranado ran 3 1/2 years ago when I moved from house to another. My car would not crank after that. We have tried the battery that isn't problem. My husband sprayed something to see if it was firing, and nothing. What could this be?

Since it did not fire when your husband sprayed starting fluid into the intake, then it is not getting spark, may be a coil, distributor, senor, plug/wires. Hope this helped Tim

1988 2.5E s10 no fuel


you mean,cranks ok, but will not start and no fuel , right>?
s10 no fuel. 1988 ( S10 blazer )
please do say , what that means.
1: car cranks and will not start. so must be out of fuel?
(over 50 causes, or better is 10 or less tests (ask)
2: same, and fuel pressure is 0 psi (spec.9-13). gauged.?
3: fuel dribble test?
4: sparks good so tired test fuel and it ran on test fuel ok? proving
loss of fueling>?
5: injector dead cranking, (eyeballs)

which was it?

1988 cars in the USA are BIG TIME TRANSITION year.
we went from CARBS to EFI.
2.5L (what is E)?
gear cam, roller HLA lifters.
your car, USA , is TBI engine,
TBI started on THIS car in 1985 (1/2 and 1/2)
Throttle body injection
an on all TBI engines, one can see it inject with eyes.
does it?
if not it can be the following things.
1: no fuel pressure, 9-13pis.
2: ECU is cutting fuel. Pressure good cranking.
2a: ECU is sending error for bad crank/cam sensors, and cuts fuel.
2b: ECU sees rpm or tacho line dead.
2c. ECU sees TPS sensor output as 4v or more cranking, this cuts all fuel.
3: if ECU is happy, it sends 12vcd to the pump, cranking.
all tests must be dont cranking or chase tail.

Were is the main fuse for a 1988 ford pickup.The truck started and ran fine.The battery drained and stupid me put the battery in backward.Now does not crank and when I jump the wires to get it to crank it...


Sounds more like a burnt fusable link, check wires for burnt spots. may also have burnt up starter. also the computer could have been fryed.

Ford f150 1988 4.9 cranks but doesnt start


If you are getting fuel and spark, than it probably is either a bad ground, or the TPS sensor itself.

Engine cranks, but does not start


My suggestion to this is to check the basics. Check fuel pressure and check spark during crank. There is no quick answer for a no start condition. You always have to start by checking the basics. An engine with no spark or fuel will not start every time.
