Question about Oldsmobile Bravada

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Olds Bravada. I had it for 1 week and it started and ran great, no problems. I filled it up with gas (for the second time) and drove home. When I tried to start again it wouldn't run. It turned over, but wouldn't stay running. After I had several people look at it the battery ran down and starter went out. I have now replaced the starter, charged the battery, replaced one fuel relay, and replaced some vacuum hoses. We then reset the security system because the light was blinking. It is still doing the same, turning over but not running. I hear the pump running so I don't think there is anything wrong with it. Please help!?!?!

Check to see if you have spark-pull a plug wire you'll need to have someone cranking it over, take a plug wire place a screw driver into the plug wire boot-hole the screwdriver BY THE HANDLE and hold the shaft of the screwdriver close to the metal surface of the engine (within 1/4 inch)-see if you get a spark arc jumping to the engine-if not, you need to look into replacing the crank sensor or possibly the ignition module-also, switch relays from anything related to ignition or fuel with other relays like from the horn or ABS-

1998 olds Bravada, runs great in the driveway, once in gear, i give it gas and it quits, only happens in cold weather


Bad TPS will give you a SES light. Possible low fuel pressure from bad fuel pump. Put a fuel pressure gauge on the service port close to the firewall, should stay above 50 psi when juicing the gas. Only use OEM parts on a Bravada! Try "thepartsladi" store on eBay.

98 Olds 88 starting problem


Update--after getting car back from 3rd shop, it ran flawlessly for about a week or ten days. Then started doing it again. I decided to do some more troubleshooting myself. While trying to track down the components of the fuel pump electrical circuit, I did quite a bit of wire wiggling at the firewall and inside behind the glove box (the location of the fuel pump relay on this car). I had a buddy turn key to "on" while listening for the fuel pump relay to click. When he did, the fuel pump ran 2-3 seconds just like its supposed to. The car started right up, and has ran since---two weeks now. My problem definitely now looks like a short in the wiring somewhere in the fuel pump circuitry. Next time it does it, I'll try to further narrow down the area of the problem. I found this one basically by accident.

your fuel pump is going bad if you have to tap the tank with a hammer to get it to work again
