1998 Oldsmobile Achieva ProblemsCheck Engine Light Due to Gas Cap Issue
A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.
The spark plugs should be replaced every 100,000 miles. Our technicians recommend replacing the spark plug wires also at this time.
You may be able to prevent transmission problems by servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid every 30,000 miles. If the fluid is dark or burned then the transmission system should be completely flushed.

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.
