Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1 Answer

Starting I have a 1997 Cutlass Supreme that has 155000 miles on it, the problem is when. you get in to start it some time it starts right up but a lot of times you turn the key nothing happens it won't even click, all the lights and other electrical stuff work. let in sit 5 or 10 min. and it starts sometimes you may have to wait a couple hours or more , it acts like it has a mind of it's own. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My car is a 1991 olds cutlass supreme.. my car started acting up on Saturday - I got gas, and I tried to start it, it wouldn't catch-- it would turn over, but wouldn't start. the car made a backfiring...


Check timing chain. Shoot a timing light at the marks on the crank, and see if they are jumping around or staying in one place. If theyre jumping a lot, the chain has jumped. If there is no light flashing at all, it may be broken, or coil, or etc. Check those first.

How much can i get for my 1997 oldsmobile cutlass supreme that is in good condition and runs, but has a rear main seal leak.


to replace the rear main seal on that car is expensive and may cost as much as the car is worth,it depends on the mileage and body condition, maybe 1000.00, a 1997 cutlass supreme in good condition,with 100,000 miles can sell for 2000.00. yours needs a rear main seal.and you say its in good condition inside and out then start at $1400.00.

This Too Is A Starter Problem, If >>The Battery Terminals Are Clean <<And >>The Starter Terminals Are Clean and TIGHT <<,I Would Wait Till It Wont Start Again and SMACK THE STARTER 2-3 times with a HAMMER then Try Starting it. If It Starts then it is The Starter. I KNOW this seems A Little UNCONVENTIONAL BUT For 30 Years This Technique Has Diagnosed HUNDREDS of STARTER Problems for me.

That could be only two things one a bad pistion or a bad rod. I would take the engine apart and find one or both maybe broken or in bad repair fixing. I would not drive it far it will throw the pistion or rod right through the engine costing ya more money or a new car.
