1994 Buick Regal 3.8l v6 custom 3800 starting problem

At the cold start it starts but then immediately dies down then want start at all when i turn the ingnition key and attempt to start it just cranks but does not start, after turning the key to off psoition i still hear some humming sound for a little while form the back of the car near the trunk and fule tank. I am assuming it could be the fule pump sound. i have half a tank of gas so it should still pump. What else could be. A month a go I had the throttle positioning censor changed becuase of an engine code (twice this year) but I do not get the engine light any more.
What else could be the problem ? Please help

    I don't think that the humming in your trunk has anything to do with your problem at hand.  It's probably just the motor for your power antenna.  I had the same annoyance with my broken antenna a while back, so i just pulled back the lining in the trunk and unplugged the power cord.

When my 94 Regal GS frequently wouldn't start for 30 minutes to an hour after being driven, it was the crankshaft positioning sensor that needed to be replaced. I also replaced the harmonic balance pulley. The car ran more smoothly and started everytime.

Buick regal custom 3800 run for then seconds


sounds like you have a severe vacuum leak, causing a lean condition. The car runs for a short period because of the rich mixture the computer provides for cold start-up.

Buick sounds like a dying chicken


Do you have the 3800 V6? It sounds like a bad bearing. Most likely the tensioner pulley or alternator.

could be a weak fuel pump or mostly plugged fuel filter check at the engines fuel rail for fuel pressure after you start it and it dies...if no pressure or low pressure, start with the filter,its cheaper.the humming is your fuel pump and that is normal.
