1998 Olds 88 LS
My very clean 1998 Olds 88 LS Toreador Red. I have had it since August 1999 and never seen another one just like it. It has a graphite interior with buckets and a console. Built May 1998, purchased used in August 1999 with 30,000 miles on it for 14K OTD. Sticker price was $28K. I get about 25 MPG city and 28 MPG highway. Major repairs made: Intake manifold plenum 90K miles - $400 Radiator 115K miles - $300 Routine maintenance: 1 spark plug wires - $70 1 spark plugs - $70 1 Serpentine belt - $80 1 Battery - DIY 1 Front brake pads - DIY The car shares much technology and design characteristics with the 1998 Cadillac Seville STS. If someone out there understands the relationship between the two cars, I would like to be enlightened. Back then , there was the Buick-Olds-Cadillac Division of GM. In 2009 I noticed the first body rust, which is under the piece of rubber between the rear wheelwell and the rear door jam. To go 11 years in an area that uses salt for roads is great. I've seen two-year old cars with more rust. This is the second Oldsmobile that I 've owned. I bought a used 1986 Olds Delta 88 Royale Brougham Coupe in 1993. I drove that for six years. Another sweet car. I took the wallpaper picture in 1999 with my 4 and 8 year old sons. It was right after I bought the 1998 88 LS, and before I sold my 1986 Delta 88. The other picture I took this past spring.
For Sale 1998 Oldsmobile 88 LS
Up for sale is my 98 Oldsmobile 88 LS. Clean title in hand. Ice cold a/c and heater works great! If your looking for a reliable vehicle for a reasonable price keep reading. Here's a list of what I've done since I've owned it. I bought the car at 110,000 miles and I did the following: Pulled the motor and transmission and rebuilt both. The block was bored out to .030 over. New pistons rings and Supercharger rods installed. Had the block checked for cracks as well. Took the heads to a machine shop and had them resurfaced with a valve job done as well. Took the transmission to baca transmissions and had it completely rebuilt along with a shift kit installed so it shifts quicker,smoother, and makes the transmission last longer. Along with the engine and transmission being rebuilt I replaced the following: New Gabriel Ultra Shocks and struts in front and back Duralast gold brake pads and rotors on the front New fuel pump and fuel filter New fuel pressure regulator New yellowtop duralast battery New radiator and thermostat New duralast gold starter Two weeks ago I replaced the intake manifold and gasket (a common issue with the 3800 series 2 motors) New motor mounts and torque strut mount New upper ball joints New o2 sensor K&N cold air intake New spark plugs and wires New mirrors New serpentine belt (replaced within the last 500 miles) 18 in divinity rims Also I've ran only Mobil 1 full synthetic oil since the motor was broken in HID kit for the headlights. Rockford fosgate speakers all around including the tweeters. Sony xplod deck 4% tint all around Aftermarket alarm installed w/ keyless entry After all those were installed I took the car to best muffler shop and had them replace the catalytic converter and install a flow master muffler (sounds great). So as of right now I've put 40,000 miles on all these new parts. Starts right up every time. The 3800 series 2 motor is known for going over 200,000 miles and was one of General Motors most reliable engines ever put out by them. I've driven to Colorado and California several times and never had any problems. Also changed the oil every 3000 miles. Over $8000 invested, asking $3800 obo. Call or text 927-8674
