Buick won't start. Sounds like its not getting any fuel
I have a 1995 Buick regal 106,000 miles. The car ran fine all day. I went to start it but it would not turn over. It sounds like it's not getting any fuel. Is that normal for this car with that many miles?

i think you might be right it sounds like your engine is getting over fed fuel you are probably not getting very good fuel mileage either the 3.8 and 5.0 would defintely require the same volume of fuel it is probably playing havoc on the pressure regulators i would get another fuel pump and start there
Fuel pump, fuel pressure will read within specs until the pump gets hot, and sometimes this shows up intermittently, I discovered this with my Moms 96 Buick Regal, it was such an intermittent symptom / problem that I couldn't find the problem for about 6 weeks of troubleshooting, but I stumbled on the fuel pump not holding pressure(even after testing many times) then that one time I caught it, and replaced it and that fixed the problem.
Good Luck !
You have two pumps,I guess you know that ,if you already did one. Did you check fuel pressure at the rail and check out the electronic pressure regulator? What codes are coming up and do they stay set?
go the cheapest route. replace fuel filter and add SEAFOAM to tank of premiun fuel. replace filter before 500 miles. then add SEAFOAM to gas every 3000 miles to keep lines.engine,fuel pump, and emissions systems clean, ETHANOL problem number 3000
i have a 2000 buick regal ive replaced the ignition switch an still no luck on starting it will not even turn over . Its really weird i can start the car from under the hood with the relay but it only runs for a few secounds, then shuts off . the car was running fine i shut the door on the passenger side ,the car died an will not start now . IS there a crash sensor in the door or fender?
Check to see if your alternator is charging. You can do this by having the vehicle jump started or with a borrowed battery. while the vehicle is idling, remove the pos battery pole.. if it cuts off .. then ypur alternator is bad or the charging circuit ( like a break in the line or fuse etc.)
