1999 oldsmobile 88. car was overheating, we put more coolant in noticed a leak from throttle body/air intake where it connects to upper manifold. Turned off car, tried to start again and didnt. removed upper manifold, full of coolant. drained, cleaned up and replaced manifold, spark plugs, oil. tried to start and it cranks and almost starts, but just wont turn over. mechanic said plugs are getting a spark etc. Thinks it may be a head gasket. Any ideas? Thanks


The orginal problem sounds like it blew the intake manifold gasket. The coolant then gets into the oil and sometimes the combustion chamber. Once the spark plugs get dowed like this they might not work good. Of course the oils been changed and the ... Oldsmobile 88

It almost sounds like the pickup sensor in the distributor is bad and erratically sending the signal to your control module. You would have to remove the roll pin in the distributor drive gear to disassemble the distributor to access the sensor. ... Ford Bronco II
