Sometimes they have trouble getting the boots off with out tearing up the plug wires. I've changed them in a half hour, and other times its taken me an hour when they were being stubborn. And if he had to go get them adds to the time too.

That may seem like a lot of time, but you don't always know what he is up against.

So yes it could be a little long, but maybe not. If he has a good rep. I'd trust him.

SOURCE: 2003 BUICK REGAL TRANSMISSION PROBLEM.

This is a common problem on some GM cars. There is a pressure control valve in the side cover of the transmission that needs to be replaced. The transmission does not have to be rebuilt. You will need to get a side cover gasket also.

SOURCE: signal bulb on 2003 buick regal

To change front turn signal –
open the hood; look in back of headlight; two white clips; pull straight up, and then whole headlight comes out including turn signal; it is all one unit; remove rubber cover, then you take bulb out of unit. Mechanism that bulb fits in will need to be turned clockwise (looking from the front) and pulled to get it out of the larger unit holding all lights. Be sure and put rubber cover back on before re-inserting the two white clips.

Why won't it start?


Check ignition wires, too. They can get old and let the spark leak out.

Car shutting down when i use the turn signal


I had the same problem with my 2003 Buick Regal ls, the ignition switch needs to be changed. Once replaced the trans will shift better and the electrical systems will appear brighter. It requires special screwdriver bits to remove the plastic around the steering wheel and the switch itself besides that it takes about an hour to replace since everything else is as simple as following wires to two different plugs, one at the ignition and another under the dash to replace it. Make sure the two screws that holds the ignition switch in place are tight or it will be hard to turn the key afterwards.

My 2003 Buick Regal is running like ****


Per your description, it sounds as though you have a stuck injector. I assume you have a service engine light on. Take the vehicle to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and ask them to scan the car for trouble codes, they will scan the vehicle at no charge to you.
Write the codes down and respond back to this post and we can get started.
Let me know.

Buick Regal problem-help!!!!!!!!


Have you done the basic maintenance. Spark plugs, oil change, ect.? As for the fans, if you have a/c one of them should only come on when your a/c is on. The other is regulated by a relay so when your car reaches a certain temp it kicks on.
