SOURCE: 1990 Buick Regal 3.1 has rough idle, hesitates and dies when accelerating.

A lot of new parts! Have a compression test done to gauge the engine's internal condition, and go from there. If compression is good on all 6 cylinders, scan for trouble codes. The compression test may find your problem, something like an exhaust valve burned or not seating properly.

2007 honda accord diesel cuts out then takes ages to start,also goes into limp mode,states fuel rail pressure on diagnostic,had injectors tested,had new high pressure fuel pump,had new filter and hous

replace the high pressure pump with a known good normal pressure pump and see if it fixes the problem. Fuel systems are built around a pump supplying enough fuel to maintain operating pressure . There is a pressure regulator that keeps the pressure steady and a pressure sensor switch that turns the pump on and off as required . Pressure can only be generated when the fuel supplied exceeds the flow requirements and all units are built to suit the requirements of the system. By adding a high pressure pump that means that there is far more fuel than is required and it is possible that the pressure regulator is incapable of unloading sufficient fuel to accommodate it . Therefore the injectors will be getting more fuel than required and so the whole system goes to pot.

1997 Nissan Sentra 4 cyl. Won't Start

That means bad injectors, or defective fuel pump, you probably need to replace the fuel pump.

Code p0171 on 98 ford ranger

Well code 171 means the O2 sensor is telling the computer the fuel mixture is too lean and the computer can not make it go rich by increasing on time for the injectors.
The problem could be the O2 sensor, or low fuel pressure, or several other factors.

Hi I have a 94 audi v6 and wont start there seems to be no power to injectors or spark plugs, fuel pump working . Not sure what to do

Also check the fuel pressure regulator - I had a similar starting issue and seemed to have cured it by replacing the fuel pressure regulator.

1990 subaru legacy wagon fuel injectors are not getting fuel to start it

Check the pressure to the fuel rail then check it at the line before the fuel pressure regulator, it should be between 55 and 80 psi at the rail and 100 psi before the regulator, if you don't have pressure before the regulator then you have a fuel pump issue, if the rail pressure is low then you may need to replace the regulator.

lots of notes in here about overheating cars, everyone wants to replace the thermostat thinking that will fix it, but it never does. likewise lots of folks thinking their fuel filter is blocked solid. it is so seldom the fuel filter. There is a filter on the fuel pump take up before it even gets to the filter so they just are not going to get totally blocked up unless the gas tank is corroding away on the inside. but your issue does seem to be a fuel supply issue. i would be thinking more about the fuel pump or pressure regulator than the filter. have someone check the fuel pressure at the injectors.

Replaced fuel pump on chev venture 2002 van and stilldoes not run,any ideas

disconnect the fuel line at the fuel rail and have someone try to start the car if you get fuel coming out then you know the pump is fuctioning and it is a injector problem or fuel pressure regulator issue, or possibly something totally unrelated. if you do not get fuel check the fuel pump relay and fuse.
