Default 95 Olds 88

Just caught my eye. For sale in town. Didn't say milage but was asking $2,250. Ok condition, but looks to be in great interior wise.

What engine does it have? Series 1 or 2? I know the N/A Bonnies got the series 2 in 95, the same for this 88?

Looks like this:


thanks!

What do the L36 and L27 mean? Has someone put up a techinfo or a thread that discusses these?

Sorry about that... L36 is the Series II naturally aspirated 3800. The L27 is the Series I natuarally aspirated 3800.

go get it Bob!

Check Engine light keeps coming on in the Explorer. Still running fine and had it scanned today. SomeP0153 02 sensor thing gone bad.

I am just kinda toying with the idea, but it would be too much work right now. Ok, maybe dreaming

I was thinking you could come down to buy it (in the nice warm Arizona temps ), visit with me for a while (we can bring it to the track on Friday.....street drags night ) and drive it home.....or I'll bring it up to you at WCBF '06

I have put 24k on mine and only had the usuall problems, nothing serious other than the tranny acting funny ever so often.
