Question about 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88
When car is running for 5 to 10 minutes the "Check Engine" light comes on. After about a half hour it begins to sputter and after about an hour it stalls while idle. A friend ran his computer on the car and he says its the camshaft sensor. Could this all boil down to a bad EGR or O2 sensor?
When was the last time the oil was changed on either one off these vechs. on the one hand the cam sensor is located in the timing cover with a spring, this will not cause a no start our dying problem but will set a cel light. if the egr passages is pluged up it will cause a egr problem hard start no start rough ilde. o2 sensor can cause a rough ilde but will also set a code . what is the mech condation off these vechs. run a commpession test and a vauccmn test. if these two items show bad readings our result. these two test should be done frist
