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.

I have a 2000 buick lasabre that has been running very rough, my son put computer on and it said bad o2 sensor, he replaced sensor, and it is still running rough, but the computer now says cylinder 6...


plugs and or wires.
for some reason the spark is jumping out of the wire or plug.
the plug insulater may have a crack in it.
also use a carb spray to clean out the throttle body at the throttle plate.
all the black carbon will build up around the throttle plate and restrick airflow at an idle position.

hope this helps
thank you

1991 buick regal starting and running problem


Sounds like your car is overheating. If you have a temp gauge it should show that. If you just have an idiot light, by the time it comes on it's already too hot to operate. AFTER the car is cooled down, open the radiator cap to see how much coolant has been lost. Chances are there is alot missing. Add WATER (no sense in adding coolant if it's going to leak out) and idle the car at home. Look underneath as it warms up to find where the leak is.

This car must have many miles on it?? And not cared for! Never mind Check for vaccum leaks first. Then , at night, fire it up and look for sparks. No sparks, with a spray bottle dampen the ignition, this should lead you to the prob. Frankster016
