1994 Oldsmobile Achieva Problems

Key Stuck in Ignition Lock Cylinder

Coolant Leak & Engine Overheating

A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. This can result in an engine overheating condition. A leaking water pump will require replacement.

"No Start" Due to Ignition Switch Failure

The ignition switch may fail causing a no start condition. This is not generally a theft system (passlock) issue because the security light does not illuminate or flash.
