2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The engine may start and stall with the security light flashing. This is commonly caused by a failed passlock sensor which is part of the ignition lock cylinder. A secondary cause could be the ignition switch itself. Worn contacts inside the ignition switch can cause voltage drop issues which can affect the passlock system. Proper diagnoses should be performed before replacing any parts.
The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.
The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
The spark plugs should be replaced every 100,000 miles. Our technicians recommend replacing the spark plug wires also at this time.
Contaminated brake fluid can cause problems in the brake system and it should be flushed every 60,000 miles.
The steering may develop a clunk type noise from the upper intermediate steering shaft. Our technicians tell us that you should check with your local GM dealer to find out what the latest repair is for this condition.
