Question about 1996 Buick Regal Olympic Gold
1996 BUICK REGAL IS RUNNING BAD THE IDLE IS ROUGH SOUNDING AND SOUNDS LIKE IT IS MISSING. BUT AT NIGHT THE DASH LIGHT WENT VERY DIM UNTIL I WOULDPUSH ON GAS PEDAL,WHENCAR WAS IDLEING I PUSHED DOWN ON SPARKPLUG WIRES TO MAKE SURE THEY WERE ON GOOD ONE WIRE I TOUCH I GOT SHOCKED PRETTY GOOD.SO TELL ME WHAT IS THE PROBLEM HERE.
Sounds like a bad alternator,...have that checked out as well as the ground on your battery and frame. And you shouldnt have gotten shocked by grabbing one of the wires goin to the spark plugs....that means your wires are bad, the insulation is cracked around them causing it to possibly short out causing it to missfire.....replace wires n spark plugs....might as well just give it a tune up.
