1998 Oldsmobile Delta.
Engine Size : 6 cylinder 3800.
Question: My car cuts off after running for about 10 minutes. It won't start back up till the engine is cool. So replaced the fuel pump, the fuel filter and the crank position sensor.

Hello, I own a 1982 Olds Delta 88 Royale Brougham. While changing from low-beams to high-beams, I lost all lights before switching back to low-beams. My Chilton's manual says this is due to a fusible link, but doesn't tell where the link is. Could you help me identify where the link is and the steps in changing it.
