1992 Oldsmobile 98 Problems
The cam sensor interrupter (magnet) may become demagnetized and/or fall off of the camshaft gear causing the Check Engine Light (Service Engine Soon) light to illuminate. On higher mileage vehicles it would be advisable to replace the timing chain and gears if this problem were to occur as the timing cover must be removed to replace the interrupter.
The fuel pump can fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians highly recommend to replace your fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.
A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.
The mass air flow or crankshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to stall intermittently. Proper diagnoses will be necessary to determine the cause of any stalling condition.

1992 Oldsmobile 98 Reviews
IM the second owner of my 1992 oldsmobile 98. I got it when it was 7 yrs old and had 92,000 miles on it. Has all the bells and whisles on it. Yes i have had to replace the tranny(2003) and other things like ball joints, struts, shock ect. I had it all checked out before i drove 4200 miles across the US from Michigan to Califonia in 2010. I did not have one problem. Was alittle worried that maybe the rebuild tranny would give me problems going up and down all the mountains. But NOPE the car ran beautiful. Still looks good too. Why they stopped making them ill never know. I love the room and ride of these old cars. Dont know if ill get rid of it anytime soon. This 20 yr old car has served me well.
