Question about 1990 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight
Sounds like you have a couple problems here.,. without enough detail to pigtail either one fully, I'm going to give it my best shot at a guess or two...
How much cranking is required to start the vehicle? if it is a lot - you may want to look at the fuel supply.. filter, the fuel itself and or the fuel pump.
Second: you have something draining electricity from the battery. is there a light inside the trunk or in the glove box where the switch may be stuck on even though it's in theory supposed to be off because the door is closed? -I'm thinking something is milking power from the battery without your knowledge? perhaps the cigarette lighter or something plugged into it? it could be something as small as a check engine light lit up would drain the power out...
Finally, dieletric grease to help with your electrical connections wouldn't hurt albeit most likely not a sole cause of the problem you are experiencing..
