What is the fuel pressure reading? Sounds like low pressure.

SOURCE: i have a 1999 buick regal ls dying.

I found the problem. It was the crank position sensor. There was also a cracked vacuum hose connecting to the diaphragm on the fuel rail. Replaced both and my 92 Buick no longer dies. For the guy who's Buick was dying when using the turn signals - replace the crank position sensor. One of my symptoms of my Buick dying was when I used my turn signals. Use of turn signals places a varying load on the electrical system which messes up the crank posistion sensor if it is going bad.

You might try a crank sensor, most of the time if you pull it out you may see a crack in it. It's between the top of the oil pan an the transmission, good luck.

1990 Buick Regal 3.1 has rough idle, hesitates and dies when accelerating.


A lot of new parts! Have a compression test done to gauge the engine's internal condition, and go from there. If compression is good on all 6 cylinders, scan for trouble codes. The compression test may find your problem, something like an exhaust valve burned or not seating properly.

Do i have to take out the fuel pump to change the fuel filter?


Hello: Look under the car and you should see the fuel filter. You DO NOT have to remove the fuel pump if your car is a 1988.

I have an 1990 buick regal custom and stalls when im griving it then dies can anyone help me on how to fix it.


Sounds to me like a fuel filter.When was the last time it was changed?Because if a car starts and runs till you give it gas under load then dies it is a fuel problem.Start by chaging fuel filter and if problem still persists then next thing to check is fuel pump.

1988 Buick LaSabre-Starts, but when you put in gear, it dies.


I would start with the MAP sensor.
You can also pull codes out of it. there should be a 10 or 12 pin plug under your dash in the canter of the car. here is a link that may help.
