1996 Oldsmobile Bravada Problems

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.

The heater core under the right side of the dashboard may leak engine coolant which can puddle on the passenger front floor. The loss of coolant may cause an engine overheating condition. Our technicians tell us that removal of the dash board is necessary to replace the heater on these vehicles.

A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.

MANY Problems w/brakes, power, fuel pump, transmission

I have owned this vehicle for over 6 years and it is one of the best cars that I have. The car has close to 205,000 miles on it and could possibly go to 300,000.
