A 96 is OBDII, you can not pull codes with out a code reader. Up until roughly 94 on some models it was possible to jump 2 pins on the diagnostic port. The check engine light would then blink the codes. You can buy a relatively inexpensive code reader or about $50. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

SOURCE: 1996 Buick Riviera How do I pull the radiator on a

Depending on your tools and mechanical abilities it shouldn't take more than an hour or so. To do so, drain coolant, remove shroud (plastic cover) remove hoses, trans lines and then you should be able to access 6 screws/bolts holding side braces, then radiator lifts straight out.

CAN YOU REPLACE A 3.8 WITHOUT THE SUPERCHARGER IN A 96 RIVIERA THAT HAD ONE IN IT IN THE BEGINNING


THE ENGINE WILL BOLT RIGHT UP. YOUR PROBLEM WILL BE THE ELECTRONICS, SENSORS, ECM PROGRAM, ETC. WHY NOT PUT THE SUPERCHARGER ON THE NEW ENGINE? IT SHOULD BOLT UP. MORE POWER IS BETTER AND YOUR MILEAGE SHOULD BE AROUND 30MPG.
