You have a failed fuel pump, if it was timing related it would not run on starting fluid. The fuel pump ids located inside the fuel tank, the fuel tank must be removed to access the pump

Sounds like the motor is frozen. Remove all plugs and see if the starter can turn over the engine . If not that baby is seized if you are sure that the battery is good. Granted, I can understand your chagrin since to the best of your knowledge that engine did not over heat. Get another diagnosis and cross your fingers.

I have a 2002 Pontiac Bonneville 3.8 LIV6.. Will a 3800 pontiac motor work for me?? Does it need to be same year as my car??


The motor will fit physically . The Best question is will the computer / PCM recognize and plug in to all connection points . This is why same year is important . Verify at a Auto Parts counter that 3800 series is in same time eg ; 1999 - 2003 all engine parts are same . This will tell you engine swap / versus computer will be OK. If you have PCM from 3800 motor then install it too . pcm talking to pcm is very important ..good luck .

Set timing on dodge ram


remove #1 spark plug, then have someone bump the starter while you hold your finger over the plug hole, Bring #1 cylinder up to T.D.C. (Top Dead Center) on firing stroke you will feel a rush of air push your finger off of the plug hole, check that the mark(or groove) that is cut into harmonic balancer,(what crank shaft pully is mounted to) is lined up with timming indicator on timming chain cover, check to see that rotor button is pointing at #1 on cap.
this should get you back to where you need to be if distributor was removed and engine was turned or moved.
then look at lable under hood if it is still there , if not check service manual for degree either before, or after T.D.C.
I hope this will answer your question

Turn the key to start.. makes 1 click and then nothing..battery seems to be ok,, as does alternator.....what could it be


one click would indicate that the starter solenoid has gone bad. A series of clicks would indicate a low battery.

Try turning the key rapidly to the start position several times. Sometimes this will be enough to get bad spot to move and the starter will engage. If this happens replace the starter as soon as possibly. It will be under the vehicle back where the motor meets the transmission. A basic set of tools is all that will be needed to replace.

If you have any questions I would be happy to answer them!

I blew the engine but have found a engine in a 1993 will it work they are both 3800


your 95 has a series 2 motor.
the 93 has a series 1 motor.
it would be better to find a series 2 motor to put in it.
there are a lot of things you would have to change to use the 93.
don't think it would be worth the time and trouble to change them.
any pont. 3.8 from 95 and up should work ok.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO TIME A 350 SMALL BLOCK AFTER HAVING THE DISTRIBUTER OUT.


with the distributor out, take out the #1 spark plug and bump the starter over until the #1 clylinder is at top dead center. Use something soft like a piece of solder to stick down the plug hole to indicate when the piston is at the top. At that point, reinstall the distributor with the rotor pointing exactly to the #1 plug wire position. Motor should start, once started fine tune timing adjustment with timing light and loc down the distributor.

Need to drain coolant from 1998 Olds Intrigue. What is best way? (3800 Engine)


COOLANT CHANGEON THE RADIATOR (LOWER DRIVERS SIDE FACING THE MOTOR) THERE IS A PLASTIC LIKE PLUG THAT YOU TURN COUNTER CLOCKWISE ABOUT 3/4 OF A TURN, THEN YOU CAN PULL IT OUT ABOUT 1/2 AN INCH THIS WILL DRAIN THE RADIATOR, THEN YOU CAN PUSH THE PLUG BACK IN AND TURN IT UNTIL YOU FEEL IT LOCK BACK IN PLACE. REFILL RADIATOR WITH 3 PARTS COOLANT TO 1 PART WATER.
1998-'99 Intrigues equipped with the 3800 engine have a specific process for replacing antifreeze. It is somewhat of a lengthy process and you should refer to your owners manual for doing this. After you empty and flush your system with water (garden hose), only fill the system with green 50/50 antifreeze, NOT Dex-Cool. Avoid Dex-Cool. If you bring your Intrigue to a shop to get serviced, make sure and inform whoever doing repairs and/or leave a note (clearly visible) to NOT use Dex-Cool if they're doing any work pertaining to cooling system.
