My 2001 Buick Regal will only start if press the gas pedal, when I release the gas pedal to step on the brake the engine shuts off. Any Ideas?


Could be a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve.
The computer controls idle speed by regulating the amount of air entering the intake thru the throttle body.

Engine will turn over, but will not start


Suggestion, don;t try and start the car with the gas pedal pushed to the floor. Asking for trouble in the future.

Could be a fuel pump, clogged fuel filter.

Check engine light on? If so, Have the code read/scanned at your mechanic, or your local auto parts superstore.

Ran out of gas and now it wont start, turns over but wont start? what do we do. Also had the transmission replaced in Dec 09 and before that and after none of the gauges worked whats the problem


Your unit comes with gas or diesel so need to know which one each one has separate ways to fix the issue. If it's gas you have to prime the system first before getting it to run. To do this simply hold fuel pedal down half way then turn engine to the run position, listen to see if you here fuel pump humming in the fuel tank for 2 to 3 seconds if it does keep turning the key to off then to run about 10 times once the system is primed a trained ear may here the difference in the sound of the pump but try starting it with pedal half way down and crank engine for 5 seconds should start up right away. if not repeat procedure again. If it still does not run then hold fuel pedal all the way to the floor and crank the engine over for 10 seconds, this shuts fuel off if you have flooded the engine now wait for five minutes and repeat first step second time. If it still does not start then you need to replace the fuel filter as you have collapsed the fuel sock or the fuel filter is plugged. If after you replace fuel filter then you would need to do a fuel pump test. Also if you have a security system and killed the battery you count have security system that needs to be reset. That information for resetting I won't give out in public domain, call local mechanic or dealer for instructions. As for the rest of your problem need more information and I work on one issue at a time as not to confuse you or me. Hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

Experienced recent cold weather. Car will not


It's flooded like you say.
If it's really flooded, you'll have to remove plugs and dry them off.
Install them.
Now when you crank engine, hold gas pedal to floor.
That will stop gas from spraying into engine.
You need to get the gas out of the engine for it to start.
Crank for 20-30 seconds with pedal to floor. Do this 3 times waiting 2-3 minutes inbetween cranks.
The starter needs to cool down.
Then after that start normally and see if it will start.
Remember if it will not start after 2 attempts, then the possiblity of it flooding is there and you'll have to clear out the gas by holding the pedal to the floor again.

the glow plugs probably need replacing, it seems they are not heating up the gas enough.
