Question about 1993 Buick Regal

1 Answer

1993 Buick Regal 3.8L turns over and won't start

Took out the fuel pump, tested - no problems. Other than the Car's idle has been a little off lately - rising up and down while in park. But other than that no problems - no codes come up when I check either. All spark plugs are good and car just had tune up in the last 6 months.

Confused and not sure what to do.

A few problems with my 92 buick regal. 1. Doesn't always start on the first try and I have to give it some gas when I turn the key. 2. Courtesy lights and chime won't turn off when key is ou

The no start on the first try could be low fuel pressure. The check valve in the pump may be letting fuel drain back into the tank, or the pump relay may be bad. The pump gets power from the relay when you turn the key on, then from the oil pressure switch once the engine starts.
How do you get the interior lights to go off ?

When check engine light comes on the engine starts flooding and idling up and down, when you put it in gear during that time it has severe loss of power and floods the car severely

I experienced same problem. You have to clean the Idle Air Control Valve first. You have to check and replace the Idle Speed Sensor if the problem persists.

Follow the steps given below:
  1. Disconnect battery.
  2. Relieve fuel pressure.
  3. Remove tank from car.
  4. Use compressed air to clean the tank, then spray with oil from an aerosol can to reduce the likelihood of combustion.
  5. Use a hammer and brass drift, turn the lock ring counterclockwise to unlock.
  6. Lift the tank unit upwards out of the tank. Tilt as needed to avoid bending the sender float. Fold the pickup screen if needed.
  7. Look inside the tank for and sediment or flotsam that may need to be removed.
  8. Unplug the tank unit to pump electrical connector.
  9. Unclamp the pump to tank unit hose and replace pump and hose.

Test your fuel pressure, make sure it is the right pressure and test the fuel volume.make sure its getting the right amount of fuel. if it checks out ok you need to put the car on a diagnostic machine. you may have a signal problem that requires a lab scope.

2000 buick regal hard to start

if this car is been sitting, the battery might be low or dead, but if not,
you know your question confuse me a little be, because if your car won't turn, that has nothing to do with the filter, but if the car crank but wont start then it migh be a bad fuel pump, the way to fin that is, by aplying some flamable brake or carburetor cleaner to the intake, then if the car starts or try to, most likelly your fuel pump is gone.
