I have a 2005 Buick lasabre fuel filter and pump have been changed car want start


It can take a little bit to get the pump to prime and make it to the fuel injector rail! There should be a fitting on the fuel rail that connects to all of the injectors, and is similar to a valve stem on a tire, depress the pin inside that fitting and cover with a rag to avoid getting sprayed with fuel while somebody turns the key to on without cranking the motor over! The fuel pump should run for a few seconds every time you turn the key to on position before starting the car, and it may take a couple of those cycles to get fuel back to the fuel rail and have the correct amount of pressure to the injectors. You will also hear the pump slow down and change tone when it gets primed and up to pressure!

Can you put a transmission from a 2002 chevy impala in a 1999 Saturn sw2


about replacing a transmission with one from a Junkyard or cross referencing them. and to show you that not all 4T65E transmissions are interchangeable, although they look alike. Guys with the comp g package or the Impala police option often find this out the hard way.
Your car and the potential donor car will have a tag in the trunk (usually under the spare tire cover) that lists the RPO codes for your car, along with your VIN. RPO=Regular Production Order. Several of these codes relate to the transmission, and you will need them to begin to find a proper match. If you can't find the RPO tags, you can look up the RPOs for a nominal fee ($5) according to the VIN number at the following website: www . compnine . com .
I know these transmissions are different in at least 5 areas, and you have to match each area for a proper swap.
FIRST is the transmission type, which relates to torque converter size, the strength of the internal gears, and the strength of the differential. Here are the basic types along with their RPO codes:
M15 - 245 mm (9.6 in) torque converter
MN3 - 258 mm (10.2 in) torque converter
MN7 - 258 mm (10.2 in) torque converter and heavy-duty gearbox and differential (see 4T65E-HD)
MD7 - 245 mm (9.6 in) torque converter (Chinese version)
M76 - 245 mm (9.6 in) torque converter (with all-wheel drive capability)
You will want a match these RPO codes.
SECOND is the final drive ratio. The PCM can detect the difference, and in some cars may not engage if the correct final drive is not present. Here are the RPO codes for the four different final drives used in the transmission.
FQ3 - RATIO TRANSAXLE FINAL DRIVE 2.86;
FR2 - RATIO TRANSAXLE FINAL DRIVE 2.93;
F83 - RATIO TRANSAXLE FINAL DRIVE 3.05;
FR9 - RATIO TRANSAXLE FINAL DRIVE 3.29;
To narrow year search for potential cars, the following site have pretty good info on the final drives used on various cars. Click on the years of the cars in question.http://www.gmtuners.com/transmission/index.htm
THIRD is the converter stall speed. There will be small differences for most cars as it is based on car weight as well as final drive value and engine ratings. Reusing the cars original torque converter will address that area. Some indication of stall speed value is given in the K-factor information in the above gmtuners page. This bottom of this page from the gmtuners website will show you how to decipher the four digit code on the torque converter. http://www.gmtuners.com/gmtransinfo.htm
FOURTH, the torque converter needs to have the correct lockup clutch friction material for the PCM that controls it (regardless of HD nor not). This changed over the years. The newer ones can be used on older transmissions with calibration changes, but older type in newer transmissions will fail. Reusing the cars original torque converter will address that area.
FIFTH is area is electrical compatibility, and this is what trips up a lot of guys. 3 different electrical interfaces to the transmissions were used from 97-08. Some of these differences had to do with how the PCM determined what gear the transmission was in, or was commanded to be in. If you look on a GM parts web site, you will see that three different internal harnesses are available for the 4T65E. Each of the three harnesses is listed below along with the cars that use the harness. Your car and the donor car will have to match. If you have any additional insight, please leave me a comment and I can correct this post.

2005 Buick Century starting issues


Try turning the key on an off several times . There is a check valve inside the fuel pump module that is suppose to keep pressure in the fuel lines . This check valve being bad could cause this problem . When you first turn the key on the PCM - engine computer energize's the fuel pump for two seconds to prime the system , but if the check valve is bad ,2 seconds isn't enough . If that doesn't do anything your best to have scan data viewed like in these videos . 011 Fuel System Tests Fuel System Scan Data

If your fuel system is loosing it's prime you have a leak. Look for oily looking mess around any of the fittings around the fuel filter any part of the system. This is the only way you can loose prime is with a leak. Check any copper sealing rings for signs of leak.

Do I need to prime the engine after it has sat for more than a year. If so how do I go about this?It is a 1986 buick century limited with the 6cyl engine.


No you do not have to prime it. But you should change oil and put 5 gallons of fresh gas in it before starting. The oil collects moisture from sitting. The gas gets stale andding more will dilute old.
