Question about 2001 Buick Regal

1 Answer

2001 Buick Regal losing power.

I have a 2001 Buick Regal w/77,000 miles. When I accelerate into a turn it bogs down, now it's bogging down any time I accelerate, especially when getting on the freeway. With the economy the way it is, I cant afford to put it in the shop. Its been a great car w/no problems until now.

85 buick regal will come on after some time but won't accelerate without bogging down. Put a different carburetor, new plugs and wires, new fuel filter, has a new alternator, can't figure out what it...


You didnt say any thing about exhaust work ? Does it have a factory cat on it? Might possibly be a exhaust restriction. Possible fuel supply and or delivery.

Start with a timing check, at higher miles the timing chain plastic guides wear and cause multiple misfire and driveability concerns...of course check the obvious, spark plugs, plug wires,c.o.p,fuel pressure..all basics. .ck engine light on?

My 88 toyota camry wont accelerate when i step on the gas pedal


tests:

cruise at say 45mph ok?
if i accelerate , it bogs then catches up?
if i accelerate, it bogs and never catches up?
if i go WOT, wide open throttle it has full power up a hill after the bog?

these test , are the KEY tests.
this tells me what is wrong.
i hope the car is tuned up, if not , why no? the 60k mile done?

Ocassionaly bogs down and loses power


one thing to try would be to buy a couple bottles of gasline anti-freeze (it absorbs water). add one to your tank now and one the next time you fill up.

Bogs down on acceleration


buy 2 fuel filters. buy can of SEAFOAM at parts store. use 1 f filter to replace old one(you'll probably see old looking gas, with an odor).Pour SEAFOAM into tank. fill up with PREMIUM gas. after about 100 miles change out fuel filter 1 last time..add SEAFOAM every 3-5000 miles and you should be fine. the ethanol in the gas turns to goop and adds water to your fuel, and puts carbon on your valves and through out your emission and fuel system. The ethanol will be alright as long as you follow these instructions. and the SEAFOAM will keep you from having line freeze up in the cold months ahead, and will give you better gas mileage. good luck.

1994 Buick Century - high idle, hesitation @ speed & little power


Have u checked to make sure that the fuel filter isn't plugged, and it could be possible that the fuel pump is bad -being cracked or haveing a bad seal in it allowing fuel to leak back in the gas tank, as soon as your fuel pump warms up the leak would expand dropping your power
