Question about 1996 Buick Riviera
I have a 96 Riviera, 3.8 Supercharged engine, and up until yesterday, the car has been running great. Yesterday I had an oil change and a tune-up that included replacing the fuel filter on the car. I just filled up with gasoline. Things were great, I drove the car to work, a distance of about 20 miles. After that, last night after work, it would not start at all, nor crank. A local "mechanic" seems to think it may be a fuel pump assembly; upon checking the price on this, I want to be SURE that this will fix the issue, since the fuel pump assembly for my car is NOT CHEAP. Would ANYONE have any suggestions as to what the issue with my car is, or is replacing the fuel pump the only possible fix? HELP PLEASE!!!
My friend has the same problem with the same exact kind of car when it doesnt crank over see if your security light stays on if so its your anti-theft system. check your owners manual under the security light portion.if the anti-theft system detects a problem with the chip in your key it will shut down the starter and the feul system for 3 minute intervals.

Whoa!! hold off on the fuel pump. If the fuel pump is in need of replacement, the engine should still crank over. To make sure we're referring to the same scenario, when u turn the key, the engine does not crank (turn over)? Is there a clicking sound, or absolutely nothing happens? If the engine is not 'cranking over' !st thing to check is the battery to see if it needs a charge, or if u can jump start the car. Check this 1st (and let me know if I understand the problem so far), and we can take it from there to see what's wrong.
