Question about 1994 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight

Open Question

I have a 1994 olds delta 88 royale that quit on me while driving down the road. The car cranks over but will not start. I pulled the fuel line apart by the filter and turned on the key and no fuel pumped out I cranked the car and still no fuel. I checked the fuel pump fuse and it is good I had the relay tested and was told that it is good. I checked for power to the fuse and I have it. I checked for power to the relay and where pins 2 and 5 plug in there is a voltage reading. 2 is one side of the control circuit and 5 is in the power circuit. I pulled the fuel tank and took the fuel pump out I hooked it direct to the battery and it ran poorly I reversed the connections and it ran great. I checked for power at the plug in connector under the car and I have no power. I was reading that the oil pressure switch is wired in the circuit and will act as a cut off in the event of failure I took the electrical connector off of the oil pressure switcth and it was full of oil. I replaced the switch and still no power to the back of the car. After all the cranking and the door open and interior lights on I noticed that just as the inerior lights went out and the chime stopped because the battery was basically dead I heard a buzzing under the car (I had plugged the fuel pump back into it's conector and it was sitting under the car) that sounded like the fuel pump it lasted only for a few seconds. I put the battery charger on the car but the pump did not work. so I took the charger back off and laid on the ground by the pump and sure enough when the power drained back down to a dead battery the fuel pump seemed to buzz like it was trying to run for a few short seconds. Not sure what to do next any ideas

SOURCE: Vehicle dies while driving down the road.

could it be the A/C pump kicking in. might be boging down the motor or electrical circuit, not letting the injectors get enough power. This could happen if the bearings are going bad in th A/C pump or there is a short in it. Just an idea. sounds like you have done the main components.

Best bet would be an auto upholstery shop. The dealers can work on them, but I would go with the guy with everyday experience. In the worst case, if you had to replace the headliner, you could have a choice of fabrics and colors.
If anyone can fix your old one they can.

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter, what you have described is low fuel pressure due to restricted fuel flow from a dirty fuel filter.
