98 oldsmobile 88

Asked by Oct 08, 2017 at 05:28 PM about the 1998 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight 4 Dr LS Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

About 2 weeks ago I tried to start my car and it wouldn't
crank,  all I heard was a click. I got the starter tested at
autozone and it failed the test so I bought a new one.  The
car ran perfect for a whole week now it's doing the same
click again.  I took the new starter back to autozone to get
it tested and it pass all the tests. I got My battery about 2
months ago and its reading 12.6. What should I do next?

well if the starter clicks that means it's getting power , and if the batt. is good and the terminals and all other elec. connections are clean and tight then the starter may be junk out of the box , don't buy cheap .


I bought 5 bad starters once from autozone in a 2 day period. Never buy anything electrical that is manufactured by autozone. Duralast parts are trash!


Denso is the way to go


Also make sure your battery cables are in good shape, no open bare wires showing.
