1998 Oldsmobile Achieva Problems

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.

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

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

1998 Oldsmobile Achieva Questions

Have spark, fuel gauge is good, fuel injector pulse is good, but the engine dies IMMEDIATELY after it starts.

Did notice that when spraying carburetor cleaner into the intake manifold it would idle, but die as soon as I gave it some gas.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am not sure of how many spark plugs are in my care and how long it takes to replace them?

there is no connection between the by pass lock mechanism and the computero- does it mean the mother board is out of service and does it mean it needs replacement?
