1997 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.

Had my 1997 Bravada for just over a month now. Loving it! Noticed red fluid deposit in my parking place, but only a little. Identified it as the Dexron fluid for the transmission.
