you will have a alternator belt or power steering belt or you will have air conditioning belt somtimes there is a air pump bey lt if you go to napa they can sell you the right belt also fleet farm sells belts you will need two wrenches like 1/2 inch and 9/16 maby 5/8 and i tire iron work well to tighen the belts up try not to get them too tight also if it is to loose the belt will squeal if the belt you are replacing it like the sencond or third back you have to remove the the other belts too well good luck

Thank You for your Answer. I have not had a chance to have the Oldsmobile worked on. I now have 2 other autos with problems that I need help with. Again, "Thank You" for your time. Jessiesgyrl
