I had a very similar problem with my 92 olds. with a 3.3 litre engine. tryed to find the problem for months. I recently had my transmission replaced, and they used a parts store torque converter switch. i was told it needed a factory part to work correctly. It worked! car is perfect now I hope it works for you ! Just got the 1997 olds repaired....the problem was a vacuum hose. The bill says "repair vacuum leak behind the throttle body". Thanks to this site for being there for us and to the person who tried to help.

I have an Oldsmobile alero 99 and the security light is constantly on however the car starts leading me to believe the security feature is not working. How can I fix the problem?

I wouldn't fix it if i was you.....I have a 2000 alero, and the security system (passlock) keeps it from starting often, and it seems to be a big problem with them. So if your security system isn't working but the car is running fine I wouldn't mess with it..

How can you reset the change oil light on a 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue?

to reset this you do the following: Put the key into the "run" position, without starting the car, but with the fan, radio, lights, etc. running. once in that position, full depress and release the accelerator pedal 3 times in a row, you will see the oil change light flash a few times on the dash, and you're done! start up the car, and the light should no longer be lit. Instructions on how to do this can also be found in the manual, just look for "change oil light" in the index in the back, and it gives you detailed instructions on how to do this.
