1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass Problems

Engine -- Verified

The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine  with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

The HVAC blower motor may stop working at one or more speeds due to a faulty blower motor resistor block. Our technicians recommend to confirm the resistor is at fault by first checking the operation of the switch.

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. The engine may overheat as a result of the coolant loss. A leaking water pump should be replaced.

I put this car through hell, but always did the oil change and tune-up. To date it's up to 115,000 miles and will probably go another 100,000 easy. It's All about maintenance.

Bought this car new. Minor upkeep, never left me on the side of the road. It's been a good car for us.
