Question about 1991 Buick Regal
From one moment to the next, the car would not start. Engine turns over fine. There is no injector pulse, there is no spark. Fuel pressure is good. After sitting a couple of hours, it just started again - and ran for 5 minutes, then stopped and would not start, same symptoms.
Is the ignition module responsible for the injector pulse also?
Chech to see if you're gettin a signal from the crankshaft position sensor located behind the crank pulley. If no signal, you have either a bad sensor or a bad crank pulley. There is a reluctor ring on the pulley that separates and goes bad. If you have a good square wave signal from the the crank sensor it's probably going to be the computer. I've replaced a lot of them. They do really wierd things when they start to go. Check all of your grounds first. Also, while the car is running, shake and pull on the wiring harnesses for the computer. I've seen on a few cars where a wire or 2 will go bad and cause and occational short.
