Is the EGR valve working correctly ?

Well this could be in your timing. As cars get some miles on them the timing chain stretches therefore causing you car to lose alot of power.So you may want to have your timing set on this car. Also I had a taurus that had a bad torque converter, and it lost alot of power on hills and under loads, also when i gunned the gas pedal. so try the timing first. Hopefully you dont have a bad head gasket or a cracked head these symptoms you are describing are all signs of head gaskets or blown heads

SOURCE: engine wont start no spark......ignition control

I had a car a couple of years back do this to me, it was the crankshaft sensor. It will not fire at all if it is bad. Luckily the part is really cheap.

SOURCE: 1986 buick skylark not firing

I have owned several older GM products, and have found that (as with any older car) when it comes to ignition issues, isolating them is simpler.
You had mentioned your plugs not sparking, see if your coil has spark ( by removing the wire connected to it, placing it close to the coil itself and cranking it) if there is spark there the next move would be check the opposite end for spark-if good, check your distributor cap and rotor. Look for wear on the contact points inside and cracks in the plastic.
It is fairly easy to isolate mechanical issues with older cars, only wish I could find the fix for my issue with the check engine light on my older car. Good luck and let me/us know how this went.
here's a typical diagram http://images.ask.com/fr?q=Ignition+System+Diagram&desturi=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.familycar.com%2FClassroom%2Fignition.htm&initialURL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ask.com%2Fweb%3Fqsrc%3D313%26q%3DIgnition%2BSystem%2BDiagram%26o%3D11106%26l%3Ddir%26ni%3D%26pstart%3D&fm=i&ac=935&fsel=2&ftURI=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.ask.com%2Ffr%3Fq%3DIgnition%2BSystem%2BDiagram%26desturi%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.familycar.com%252FClassroom%252Fignition.htm%26imagesrc%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.familycar.com%252FClassroom%252Fimages%252FIgnitionDiagram.gif%26thumbsrc%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fmedia5.picsearch.com%252Fis%253FQBY5K91Ebiskm_sKBpi_HkrmjozD-oVuxXItTg04nkE%26o%3D11106%26l%3Ddir%26thumbuselocalisedstatic%3Dfalse%26thumbwidth%3D128%26thumbheight%3D114%26fn%3DIgnitionDiagram.gif%26imagewidth%3D682%26imageheight%3D609%26fs%3D33%26f%3D2%26fm%3Di%26fsel%3D2%26ftbURI%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.ask.com%252Fweb%253Fq%253DIgnition%252BSystem%252BDiagram%2526page%253D1%2526o%253D11106%2526l%253Ddir%2526pstart%253D&qt=

1993 buick skylark wont start. its not getting spark. changed coil packs, still no fire. battery is fully charged, fuel pump comes on. why would stop it from turning over fully?


is the check engine light on?if you have no spark, start with the wires, and work your way back. you say that you replaced the coil packs..... it could be a crank position sensor. please get back to me if the check engine light is on. also, let me know what happened from the start. were you driving? has the car sat for a while?

2002 Buick Century starts good idels good But no power on acceleration in drive sounds like an qudre jet carb when acceleration


sounds lik either a fuel filter plugged or the cat is plugged, check fuel pressure or just replace filter and if that isn't it have a muffler shop check the exhaust for excessive back pressure.

Starts and then stalls immediately


Hello There

It sounds like a weak fuel pump, which turns but not with sufficiant pressure.

I would also recommend looking at the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor which can also give similar problems.


Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

i would pull a spark plug and see if its wet(fuel) sounds flooded but that is the effect not the cause . need to check fuel pressure to find the cause of the problem.
