2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue from North America
Love the car
I think the two lights that come on, and make life a challenge on the Intrigue, have to do with service to the vehicle and service to the engine. I have had both come on. Had the cam shaft replaced when one of those lights came on. Also, was told the cam sensor caused the light to come on the most recent time. The technician said that it looked as though it may have gotten wet, possibly from the coolant hose next to it, but that the coolant system checked out to be leak free. Said everything checks out, so they will reset the system, and if it comes on again, they will recheck it. Also, they are willing to replace the cam sensor. I will probably end up doing that anyway.
Love the car, love the idea that it was made in America, and has been essentially trouble free. Just old and wearing out.
When I occasionally had trouble starting the car, it was diagnosed as having a bad or worn fuel pump regulator. Who knew? Since replacing that, no problems with starting it. I spent 2 days trouble shooting, then took it to a professional. Now I know I have a fuel pump regulator.
What don't I like about the car? The manufacturer went out of business. I would buy another one, newer if they were available.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
