Oldsmobile Cutlass Problems

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.

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.

GM recalls 1997-1998 Chevrolet Malibu and Oldsmobile Cutlass vehicles in cold weather states because the wiper system may fail due to ice and snow buildup.
