Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Oldsmobile 88 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 139000 miles
I have a 1998 Olds 88 with a v6. I drive the car 45 miles each way a day. Two days ago, it began to act as if it was running out of fuel about 1 mile from my destination. It did not cut off, but ran as if it was missing. I cut it off and went into work. When I got back in it a few hours later, it would not start. The starter turns as it always has and the battery is fully charged. The spark plugs are firing and the fuel pump is working. The fuel pump cuts off after a few seconds after cranking. I check the fuel pressure release valve after each crank and fuel shoots out for a couple seconds then dies out. After cranking for a while it smells like it is flooded. I checked the codes and it does not have any. Any suggestions?
