Problems with anti-theft systems using the raised-chip key can prevent the car from starting. The wires in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder tend to break. The key and ignition lock cylinder should be replaced to correct this condition.
1990 Oldsmobile 88 Questions
It's been extremely cold and I used a container of heet for the fuel line twice. Any other suggestions?
It shoots this code after exactly 16 miles from a cold start every time. Then, it restarts fine and runs fine
for the trip home almost 30 miles.
Once I did that the car runs great. But now it seems as though I have no power and I smell brunt oil and the transmission seems to not want to change properly. What could cause these problems? Before changing the MAF everything was fine except the car was choking off

1990 Oldsmobile 88 Reviews
Somebody ran into the front of my car and the bumper and headlights are done. How much do you think it would cost to get fixed and where can I find the parts?
Okay--I had an '87 88, but I have to review the car anyway, as it was my first. Strong engine, and absolutely a Detroit tank of a car, but it was comfortable as hell and low-maintenance. Problems: the headliner will sag on you as only GM headliners can. You will develop timing chain and valve problems over time.
