Question about 2001 Buick Regal

2 Answers

Car won't start without gas peddle.

Previously started rough, sometmes had to give gas. Today started once. Was parked. When tried to restart it would not start without a shot of gas. When backed off the gas it stalled. Will not idle on it's own, will keep running as long as gas peddle keeps the revs up.

    The solution to this problem was to replace the idle control, at a cost of $120.00

'92 Buick Regal Custom 3.8L rough idle/dies when starting


something that can easily be fixed.??????? Without doing testing we would only be guessing . To many thing's could cause your problem . Hooking up a capable scan tool to view engine sensor data is the proper way to diagnose this , not guessing an replacing part's . If it does find after giving gas would not suspect fuel system , i would think a sensor problem . But like i said without doing some testing that is just a guess . Testing like shown in this video

I ran over a big rock in the road. It went under car and hit undercarriage. The car engine stopped and would not restart like it was't getting gas.


trace your fuel line from your carb back to fuel tank, sounds like you have a severed fuel line. in either primary or return. it will start on starting fluid but won't continue to run without fuel.

About the only thing that comes to mind is a faulty EGR valve that stays stuck.
