1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass GLS 3.1 Liter V6 from North America
A nice looking, handling piece of @#$%.
The ABS light intermittently comes on.
Had to replace a fuel injector.
Alternator just went out at 60,000 miles, along with the gas gauge spinning around to the bottom becoming inoperable.
Runs smooth when running.
Seriously contemplating fixing the dash and getting rid of it. Don't need a money pit.
Maybe get a Saturn.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I also have a 1998 Olds Cutlass GLS.
My ABS light intermittently comes on.
My gas gauge needle went all the way around and got "stuck". To fix this I took it to a friend that used to work at a GM dealer. It was caused by a power surge.
My car has 82000 miles and runs great! Great sound, great comfort, great gas mileage (at $2 a gallon this is a good thing).

Transmission feels like it is "slamming" into gear. Purchased a code reader and cleared all faults clearing problem. However, fault code P0113 (Intake Air Temperature Sensor Circuit High Voltage) keeps returning, causing this problem to return. Suggestions?

Try using electrical parts cleaner on the intake sensors to fix the voltage problem.

I've had my cutlass for 6 years it had 32,000 miles when I bought it. It now has 82,000 miles on it. It Just started leaking coolant. Took it to the mechanic it was the intake manifold gasket. My ABS light goes on all the time. My A/C light goes on and off. I had to get another alternator. Nothing to costly drives really good. I've been happy with it.

I purchased a 1994 Olds Cutlass Supreme with 151 K miles about 3 1/2 years ago. The tranny was failing when I bought it, as I was told. After a year I rebuilt the tranny and currently have 225 K miles with some additional brake work and door handle repair. Its been a great car.

My 1998 Cutlass is a nice looking piece of crap as well. I will never again purchase another Chevy.
The ABS light is on a lot, and it dies all the time. Any time I stop, the car dies, and every dealership can't seem to find out what's wrong with it.
We have replaced the fuel pump and the fuel injector, and no luck yet. Oh, and did I mention the car dies when I turn my air on too?
