1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue Owner Comments

problem #2

Oct 102004

Intrigue 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 126,123 miles


Bolt head broke off. Bolt attached rear control arm to wheel bearing. External portion of bolt head looks fine, but portion where the head attaches to the threads is completely rusted through. I saw the broken bolt head on the garage floor, otherwise I never would have checked for it. With the head broken off, the bolt could possibly fall out of the hole, and the frame would drop significantly over that wheel. The weight of the vehicle likely kept the bolt in place. It cost $51 to have the bolt replaced at an Oldsmobile dealership. The old bolt head is available.

Rear suspension (3/4") bolt failure. Bolt had fractured at the neck under the head. 80% of the area of the fracture was covered in rust, with 20% showing signs of a recent failure. The area of failure on the bolt head showed indications of torsional stress.
