Question about 1996 Buick Riviera
Last night got in my car, went half block, and it lost power, and wouldn't hardly stay running. This morning went out to check what could be wrong, can not get it to start at all. Changed plugs, wires, all 3 coil packs. Sprayed starting fluid in it, can get it to try to fire every now and then, but usually backfires. Wondering if it might be, ignition control module, crank sensor, or even timing chain. Any suggestions of what to check, first

When you put timing chain on,Had it broken,or jumped?When you replaced the crankshaft sensor did you line it up with the harmonic balance reluctor?On the cam shaft sensor,did you notice if you put the reluctor back on the cam gear when you installed the timing chain?

If it runs on start fluid and nothing else its obviously a fuel concern fuel pump ,fuel pump relay ,check fuel pressure at the regulator that you replaced.

check fuel pressure are fuel rail? Should be 40-47 psi. Also check filter at rear frame rail near RR tire, pull vacuum line off fuel pressure regulator at intake mainfold. Should have vac. and be dry, no gas at fitting.
