Oldsmobile Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
yes and it checked ok
are you still there
I just sent a third attempt to send you information -- quite a bit of info -- not sure why it is not going through!
This is starting to be frustrating!
It was tested and was ok per the book and the internet.
The security light is the same as always
vehicle just "died" while I was driving it and will crank, but not start
Holding the gas pedal down -- was the same -- cranks like it wants to start, but doesn't
Same thing with the key trick -- cranks, no start
no did not write it down and that was around 10pm last night after working on it for 6 hours. is there a particular number that we should be looking for that is different from a "manual" or the "internet"? 60-66 is what we were using
husband is not home at the moment, and I can not remember what he did to check this, can you tell me and I will go try it?
He does, but I probably don't know what it looks like to use it... ugh... problem with not working on vehicles with hubby
thought asking these questions would give him more avenues to look down and solve this issue
I do know that it sounds really strong when the pump does it's thing. not weak like the one in his truck that he did have to replace. Guess I will have to wait till he gets home to try, which is not for another 4.5 hours.
Is there a way to start this conversation back up when he does get home and does this test?
I have done the rating for the time being as good, as it has not really shed much light on the situation. If we get the pressure test done and it is still within the range of 60-66, then these discussions have not moved us any closer to the solution. And we will have to seek further advice -- my son has mentioned asking questions about the computer for the vehicle and if something there, can be triggering the failure to start. If it is actually 59 or lower and I expend the money and time to replace it and it solves the issue, I will change the rating.
