Truck key wont turn on my 1988 delta 88

Hi John:
The Delta 88 is not a truck.
If you're trying to use a truck key and it's not working, it's probably not for that vehicle.
You should be able to get the correct key by taking the VIN to a dealer who can provide the key code. Then you go to a lock shop and have the correct key made.

I cant unlock the doors with the key. I always have to go to the back door and pull the front lock up with my hands

Assuming the key you are using, used to work...sometimes a lock cylinder will build up dirt or corrosion, or sometimes just dry out...use a spray called PB Blaster available at most parts stores (even Walmart:)...using the fine red stem nozzle, spray each key slot thoroughly...KEEP a rag near by to wipe off the overflow from your paint...:) you might need to do this a few times, but if the lock cylinder is not broken...this could be your cheap fix...Hope this helps

What is the mpg for 84 olds delta 88 royale brougham

Hard to say on a older car such as this. If running well and healthly it should receive around 16 to 18 highway miles per gallon

Recently bought '96 olds delta 88, slow starting after 1 week of driving, previous owenr replaced fuel filter, where is the location of the fuel filter?

Along the frame rail under the car you should see the fuel lines on the driver side. Along the line around the front driver door area there should be a metal barrel, this is the fuel filter.

Keys locked in car

Being an older car model, you can probably get them out if you know someone with a slimjim. This is a long, narrow strip of metal with a type of hook on each side. This would be slid between the window and the door and allow you to catch onto the locking mechanism and release the lock. If this doesn't work, can you use a wire coathanger and get it into the car to release the door lock? Another thing you can do is find a friend with a AAA card. They could call it in and have a locsmith come out and unlock the door. If someone with AAA rides in your car, their AAA benefits will cover getting your car unlocked
