Question about 1991 Buick Regal

1 Answer

1991 Buick Regal will not start

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?

    My father in-law has a 1991 Buick regal. He can not get it started. He has replaced the ecm, ignition module and the crank shaft sensor. The fuel pump has adequate pressure. At first it acts like it wants to start, then it just turns over and does not sound like it is firing. Any suggestions?

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.

The engine died and the check engine light came on. It will not start.


What is year--make--model? The basics, if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check fuel injector pulse. At the moment, I have no idea about the pings?

Fitted cranksensor injector loom still not starting ?


You would put on a new crank sensor because the ignition system won't work, it gives no spark. So now do you have spark at a spark plug wire end? A blue consistent spark? Probably good ignition system, as long as all spark plugs get a spark.

One thing you always want to check with no start is the fuel pressure. Turning the key to on should turn the fuel pump on and put pressure in the fuel rail at the engine. Autozone and maybe others rent or loan fuel pressure gauges. Multi-port injection systems have high pressure specifications, around 40 psi normally. That is what the injectors require to spray out fuel when they pulse and open the nozzles.

With the injector circuit, the first thing to check is if each injector has power to it with the key in ON. One power wire and one ground wire goes to each injector. The power wire is from a fuse that is powered with key on or key in start, and then it is spliced to all of the injectors. The injector grounds all run into the engine computer, where the circuit can be internally grounded for a split second and cause the injector to pulse. But anytime the key is on, the injectors have steady voltage available to them.

Fuel pump pulsing when i turn key on


Well the pump would not be able to flood the engine unless the pressure regulator failed or one of the injectors was stuck open.
Have you checked the regulator and injectors ? The pump relay should power the pump for 3 seconds when you turn the key switch on, and you should have around 40psi of fuel pressure in the injector line.

2004 ford explorer will not start but turns over


For a no start , cranks over ok. be sure you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail first, before checking the injectors. There should be more that 40 psi at the rail... if not .. you might have a fuel pump problem. Even if you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail... the next thing I would check for,,, is spark !! Make sure you have spark at the spark plugs. The order would be... fuel pressure first and then spark , , then injector pulse. !! Then plugged exhaust.... then bad fuel then engine timing. The injectors have power to them all the time. The PCM controls the ground to the injectors. So you would have to monitor the ground side of the injectors. So checking injectors is kinda complicated. Hope this helps you. Good luck.

Wont start\good fuel pressure\good spark


Then the fuel injectors are not pulsing,replace the crankshaft sensor,it controls the spark,but also the pulse for the injectors.
