Oldsmobile Mechanic: Pete, Oldsmobile Technician replied 3 months ago

If you hold your foot to the floor on the gas pedal then turn on the key and crank it over will it start right back up again then at all?

no and thats the problem there are no pcm or bcm codes precent or stored.no after market remote start or alarm system.Yes I have done that and sometimes it will start right up and sometimes it will just turnover and no start unless i let it sit for a couple minutes.
Oldsmobile Mechanic: Pete, Oldsmobile Technician replied 3 months ago

Have you tested for spark and injector pulses when it does not start?The 55 psi of fuel pressure was this tested when it would not start?

Oldsmobile Mechanic: Pete, Oldsmobile Technician replied 3 months ago

Will it stay running for a long period of time in neutral or park or does it eventually stall out as well in neutral or park?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
could it possibly be an ignition switch problem?
Oldsmobile Mechanic: Pete, Oldsmobile Technician replied 3 months ago

I see no one else has responded here.

Try tapping around the ignition cylinder to see if it cuts out or acts up and let me know.

Thanks Pete
