You may have bad teeth on your starter or the solenoid may just be going bad. It is also possible you bought a defective battery,may have bad cells.

There is a tube on the drivers side of the carb. facing the front of the engine. It only draws vacuum when you are giving it the gas. Is it a quadrajet? Get one from a 1970-1974 these are simple to operate.

SOURCE: 2000 buick regal lse 3.8 wont start or turn over

several things to check out:

get it started and go have the battery, alternator, and voltage regulator tested. No charge at most parts stores.

IF they all test ok then you will need to remove the starter and have it tested. The solenoid could be bad. Was it wet outside the day it wouldnt start? if so then oisture is probably getting into the solenoid.

If your 1983 Buick Regal has a good battery but makes a clicking noise and will not start, you should check and make sure its getting spark, check your starter, also check your battery connections, and the starter cables.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just got a new starter and a new battery on my 1983 buick regal an it started once then when i cut it off it wont start back up fo about an hour or two wats draining my power


Not sure if I am following your question.
Is the battery charged up when you first start the engine ?
Does the engine crank but not start the second time, or not crank ?
What happens if you let it sit for an hour ?

1983 Buick Regal drivers rear window is stuck in down position. Is there a way to manually move it up without replacement of motor/switch?


You would probably need to remove the motor from the regulator, pull the window up by hand, then reattach the motor to keep it locked in the up position.

Check the Tension on the Belt. If it is even a Little loose it will not allow the Battery to Charge. Check the Alternator Also.
