Question about 1997 Buick Century
Ok broke down going down road,seemed like serpentine belt, loss of power, dimming of lights,no power at all, could do maybe 10mph and you could smell some thing like burnt rubber or hot wire smell when it was broke down,and hood was frozen when it died so next day i saw it wasnt the belt but it was the starter cylanoid was very loose from cylonoid housing,i replaced starter and battery next and it would turn over but no start,so i then replaced plugs and wires,changed oil and there was a strong smell of gas in the oil...i have chked the fule filter,pump is working right,i get spark,and i have also replaced the MAP sensor,what else should i chk to get the car to start??
*** i just replaced the altornator and it seems as thou it wants to start but only if i take out the fule pump fuse, am i getting too much gas?
Sounds like you are flooding the engine with fuel. On the fuel rail you will find a fuel pressure regulator. Try replacing that . It sounds as if the pressure g=regulator isn't working therefore allowing a lot more fuel than it should. Hope this helps you out.
