Oldsmobile Achieva Problems
A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.
A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. This can result in an engine overheating condition. A leaking water pump will require replacement.
Oldsmobile Achieva Questions
I'm trying to check it because my car just stopped. It cranks but just will not turn over to start. The spark plugs has been replaced and a new radiator. The car also has more than 3\4 tank of gas in it.
i have a quad 4 engine that has what appears to be a metal plate covering with 4 screws going through the top of the engine cover. Is that what I am suppose to remove and then I will see the spark plugs? I have unscrewed all four screws but the plate does not seem to come off so easily. Any ad...
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.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
