2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue GL from North America - Comments

16th Jul 2005, 23:05

I own a Oldsmobile Intrigue 2000 and my car has been giving me some problems. Problems like a weird noise coming out of the right side when I am in the highway, the car sometimes turns OFF, If it has less than 1/4 of a tank my car will be acting up (DOING AS A STICK SHIFT WHEN YOU DO A BAD GEAR MOVE), when I turn it on and I'm not stepping the gas pedal the car will turn off. These kind of problems are also appearing in my cousins car who has an Oldsmobile Intrigue 2000 also.

My car goes crazy sometimes (by just moving it and having the brake up to the maximum the car wants to keep moving.

I've called the Oldsmobile (at least what it used to be) and the GM and they just tell me that that is one of the problems that this kind of cars have, and that there is nothing that they could do about it. I didn't think that is a good comment for a person who owns a car that is being giving problems and that is upset about it.

Well that was all my comment

I also have a 2000 Intrigue that has been GREAT since we purchased the car. However, we have approximately 66K miles on it and ever now and then the Service Engine Light comes on. I took it to the dealer and they stated it was the PVC valve, they replaced it and it was fine. So, every time the light would come on I would replace the PVC and the light would turn off. Just recently, the light came on and I changed the PVC as always and it has not turned off. I took the car to Autozone to check the code and they stated it was the Camshaft Position Sensor code. The car sometimes starts and other times after the first attempt I have to press on the gas wait a few seconds then it will turn on. Unforturnately, I find myself doing this very often, I bought the Camshaft Position Sensor from Autozone for $35.00. However, I cannot find the part on the engine so I can replace it. I have been looking on the Internet with no results for a diagram. I called GM and they said that I need to bring it in to the dealer and they can replace it for me. The whole point is, I want to replace it myself to save money. Does anyone have an engine diagram to locate the Camshaft Position Sensor?

To the car that needs full brake application sometimes... that is a SES code that says that your Engine Idle sensor is bad. It only cost me 100 dollars for the sensor, and you do the math for labor for my 2000 GL. Solved my problems of revving 3000 rpm when "idle". And the car dying randomly (mine within the first 5 min of driving it only, starts right back up.) It is also a SES code which is the crankshaft position sensor which should solve the problem, but I just don't get it fixed because I'm a college student and don't have all that much money. I don't see it being too much more than the other sensor and my problem of my car dying is not that severe. Hope it solves problems.

I own a 2000 Olds Intrigue, I love my car. It, recently, had been giving me problems with the turning off. We replaced the mass air flow sensor. We had to try starting about 7 or 8 times. It reset the computer. Then we took it out and opened her up. Now she is back to purring like a kitten.

Hi, I have an 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue and on a recent trip out of town it ran severely hot and cut off while doing 75 mph on the highway, and has not started since. I had it towed home, well it didn't take a genius to figure I blew a head gasket. But now after fixing that, I figured out that I needed to reset the computer, because something is not letting all of the sensors receive the voltage signals that they need in order for the car to start. But I don't know how. can you help?

You can reset the computer by disconnecting the positive battery cable for about one minute and replace it. That should do it. It worked for me.

I have a 2000 Intrigue, and I have had almost every sensor replaced a while ago, and even the engine recently, BUT I am still experiencing the same initial problem... my car will not start.. it is getting gas and the started is working fine, but it will not turn over.. sometimes it will if I hold the gas pedal down, but it will still cut off... I was told that my computer is bad, could this be the case? I would like another opinion before I put another dime into this car...

As I understand it, your car is not turning over. The mechanic should have done this, but if not...

They should have tried a hand held switch on the starter. Taking out the car's ignition switch. Sounds like all have been checked but the ignition.

I have a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue. It's work great until recently it had trouble starting and the check engine soon light came on. The two codes that came up indicated a cam sensor and crank sensor. The initial mechanic I sent it to said it could be a possible PCM power failure. Has anyone had any problems like this?

The crank sensor is under the starter.

Uhhhhhhhh!!! I bought a 98 Intrigue for $400. It runs fine till it warms up. Thought it would be an easy fix and make my girl a good car. I have been working on it for 2 days.

I have a 92 Park Avenue with a 3.8 that is solid and runs great, and motor wise it's identical.

I have installed a new fuel filter, blew the guts outta the catalytic converter (yeah I know this will kick the mil light on). Tried the ignition module and coil packs from the 92 Avenue. Pulled the balancer off and checked the crank sensor on the front of the engine (getting the bolt and balancer off was a nightmare; had to use 3/4 drive impact!!).

The cam sensor obviously has to be good cause my rpm gauge works fine. As I understand there are 2 crank sensors??? I have inspected the one behind the harmonic balancer and it's fine. What is the location of the other sensor???

I also have 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue. I bought it from my uncle four months ago. Everything was fine until it started snowing. My engine light warning is on and the mechanic said it's going to cost me $120 just for the check plus whatever the problem is. Do you guys have any idea how much will it cost? Then, ever since the mechanic reset the change oil warning sign, the warning sign is on for service vehicle soon, change oil, low oil. I don't understand because I just had my car service last month and it's not due until 3 months.

Please share your problems with me and if you know the answer to my problem here's my email mjmica@yahoo.com.
