1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue Owner Comments

Recall id 75918- engine and engine cooling GMC owner center, I own a 1998 Oldsmobile and has had several problems with the window regulators failing, signal lights, electrical, cooling system and coolant warning light since owning the vehicle in 2000. Engine and gaskets have blown, water temp has blown and after costly repairs, the low coolant light still goes off and on. Dealership always have to have light on to detect issues and still never detect anything. My coolant and levels are always checked and filled and the light still triggers on and off for awhile then return on again throughout car history. In 2008 my coolant light was acting up and I had vehicle checked out and fluids at appropriate level. Vehicle ended up overheating on interstate and I had to replace water pump and something else. Light went out for awhile and vehicle checked out. In 2009 light came on and vehicle checked and all fluid levels correct. Light still comes on and blinks and goes off for awhile. Smells like oil or something burning in car. I was on consumer recall site and saw this engine and engine cooling recall from 2009 regarding the spark plug wire retention. I don't recall receiving this notification. I believe the last recall letter I received was in 2008 regarding the steering. My vehicle was taken to shop for that and checked out at that time. Can I still have my spark plug wire retainers replaced for this recall?

The blinker switch isn't working properly. It started about a month ago and I replaced the bulb four times and now when I try to replace it doesn't do anything. I have noticed all Intrigues having the same problem as I have asked them if that was the case. I took it to an automotive mechanic and they said that it was a defective turn signal switch. That needs to be replaced.

The events leading up to the failure is just turning the car on. The failure is the daytime/signal lights, it occurs now up to 3 times a week. After putting a new light in its place within the next day the light is burning out at the connection part. As of right now nothing is being don to correct the problem but buying $5 light bulbs 2 to 3 times a week.

Steering rack has a clunking sound when when first moving car & turning the steering wheel plus is hard to turn. Parking lamp socket failed causing bulb to melt & fuse melted plastic inside of socket, which will not allow a replacement bulb to be replaced, bulb fails to light up for turn signals. Air conditioning is poor at best, will not cool car down.
