    I am unfamiliar with the gas line antifreeze. Is that a problem you would have in South FL or is that a Northern condition?

Could also be a plugged catalytic converter. You may need to replace it as they tend to cause fuel to backflow thru injectors and not start which will in turn give you a good reason why you have fuel smell when trying to start.

Could be to many thing to take chances with, but most commonly;fuel filter,gas line antifreeze or a crack in your air intake which would take your vacuum seal away, start with the least expensive and work from their. Worst case scenario pinched fuel line

    yes, because sometime depending on what type of gas you use ,water can build up in your tank. And it absorbs it out. But their are other products that do the same thing . my favorite, outlaw octane boost works great and gives you a safe boost in power.

When I start My 1998 buick regal ls 3.8 it idles rough and stalls most of the time, the rpm's go up and down as soon as I let go of the key. If I step on gas for a few seconds it stays running. Motor

did you clean any carbon from the air intake and air passages around the idle control motor. carbon buildup around fuel injectors or intake manifold can cause this problem also.

1988 buick regal stalls and restarts stalls and restarts

Sounds like a relay or coil failing.
To proceed you would need to find out if you are loosing spark to the plugs or fuel pressure to the injectors when it won't start.

1993 Buick Regal 3.1 - just purchased for my son and it's been running fine for about 2 weeks. One day he was driving and it stalled and would not re-start. Changed the fuel filter, pump is working fine. ...

Do you have a check engine light on? If yes; try to get the code, have someone loan you a scan tool to access the codes. If you do not have a check engine light on it is not a ecm control issue, ie. (cam or crank sensors etc). Suspect the fuel pump. If you are certain it is working ok. Next is to check the coil pack and Ignition module. Look for spark at the plugs. Pull a plug wire and look / listen for spark to jump out the end to bear metal as you spin the engine trying to start it.

Stalls or pulls when you press on gas

Hello, I would first do a general tune up. Replace the oil, fuel, and air filter. I would next change your Spark Plugs, Spark Plug Wires, Distributor Cap and Rotary Button. This may be just a clogged fuel or air filter or your spark plugs are fowled out and they need replaced as well. I would first however check your brakes becuase you say it pulls correct; this may be bad brakes and rotors and grabbing so I would inspect and check these first and if they are not bad I would move onto the tune up ok. If you have any questions email me back. I hope you have good luck!

1993 buick regal stalls out when alternation wire is plugged in?

I do not quite understand what’s your meaning.

You mean take off one plug, you can run your car.

But you plug other wire to where?
