Question about 1997 Oldsmobile 88

1 Answer

Gas leak Hi Guys, I just bought myself a beautiful 1997 olds royale. It rides like a dream, I feel safe, my girls and I love it and they've even named her "Daisy", she also kicks ****....the only issue is that the gas line at the top of the tank is swollen and needs to be replaced. Now the question I have is this....do I need to drop the tank....or can I gain access to the tank by removing the back seat?

    Thanks for your help! I love working on my own car, but being a single mom, I was hoping I could go through the back seat.....big time saver! Guess it's off to our local "Mr. Bay" to drop the tank!! Thanks again!

I have a 2002 PT Cruiser that rides as though it has no suspension system at all, going over the smallest of bumps feels like I hit a giantic sink hole, what do you think the problem is and how do I f


The suspension system being that old probably needs some major work. Beside being a short wheel base does not help. The longer the wheel base the smoother the ride. I bought a new car a short time ago(cross-over) , did not like the ride. Bought a mini-van a year later. Much smoother ride and better gas millage.

On the front of your truck where your radiator is there is a transmission cooler,there are lines running from your transmission to that cooler they could be leaking, the transmission cooler is behind the grill on the front of your truck infront of your radiator, and as far as a stop leak, myself it is alot cheaper than buying a transmission, I would suggest that you use CD2 transmission stop leak, just a suggestion.

Gas gauge reads correct when I fill it up until I've used about 7 gallons. Then the needle stays past full. What would cause this?


Hello nc girl 30: My name is Roger and I will help with your question. The most likely cause is the sending unit in the fuel tank. The tank unit tells the dash dauge where the fuel level is at. What is in the tank is a sliding scale resistor. When a bad spot forms that is where the gauge fails. To repair and replace the sending unit requires removing the fuel tank from the car. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Hi, i have a 90 olds 88 royale and it dies randomly. It will start after it sits for a bit and run with no problems. I've already changed the gas pump, gas filter, ignition module, coils, even the air...


Put a crank sensor on it to fix. They get hot and stop working. Next time it stops pour or spray some water on it and try to start it. Old trick to solve problem

Sounds like a head gasket or a crack in the head/block. Try some block seal from the local parts store, sometimes it works well.

Chk Eng lite,Gas odor,some days no strt,bux@redlights


The gas odor indicates a leak in the fuel system, probably the gas line. This would cause fuel delivery problems and stalling. It may also be the reason the check engine light comes on.

Have the fuel lines checked and replaced if need be

Falcon does not change out of first gear until the oil gets hot.


if the oil was black this indicates major issues in the transmission, transmission fluid should be a bright beautiful red color you need to get your transmission repaired soon as possible.
unless they drained the engine oil>>>>>>?
