Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

2 Answers

My daughter's 98 Oldsmobile will run fine for a day or two and then it won't start(not even turn over). We jump start it and it runs fine and then a day or two later the same thing happens. The mechanic has replaced the starter, the battery, and he can't seem to find out what is causing the problem. Appreciate your help. Steve

I have a 1992 Oldsmobile 98 the car and everything runs fine I stopped my car to get gas and now when I try to turn the key it wont even turn in the ignition how do i make it turn to fire the car up


Try giving the steering wheel a wriggle left and right as you turn the wheel. Sometimes the steering lock pin has to much force on it to move easily.
Other than that the gears on the starter rod may have jumped or warn and will not mesh. That would require the steering wheel to be removed to fix.

I own a 97 mercury villager an just won't start


I have a 98 model.
Someone will have to figure out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel problem when it won't start.
Could be a long list of causes depending on which issue.

1972 olds 98 455ci starts and runs fine when its cold but once i've driven it for awhile it starts sputtering like its running out of gas


sounds like a vapor lock. older cars needed a set of points . they kept firing times in sync with fuel delivery , valves opening/closing try that.

98 Buick Regal won't run unless hooked for a jump.


you may have a bad ground, or the ignition switch needs to be replaced.

Daughter called me ..car wont start. checked battery at Autozone...it is good. someone stopped to help them and bang on startere and it starts up. Bad starter. Starter replaced. Next day daughter...


it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.

good luck

Went to change the sparkplugs and wires on my 87 oldsmobile 98 now it will not start just back fires have a new battery too just done today it was running rough today before we changed the spark plugs


Sounds like it has jumped timing. Check to make sure all wires are in correct spots, then see if distributor is loose enough to turn by hand, rotate it as far as it will go one way and try to start, if not go the other way and try. If it gets better one way or the other, you may have jumped time and need new timing chain or distributor gear.

Car runs fine till it is turned off


two things come to mind....
1- a electrical component may be heat sensitive and not function after turn off heat soak
2- your fuel pump check valve isn't holding fuel pressure in the fuel loop 
Next time check for spark...if thers's spark it's a fuel problem
