1991 Buick Regal Limited (3.8) ABS light blinking

Well, a buddy of mine had this car, and it began to leak fuel badly from the bottom of the tank and he decided to get another vehicle. he decided to sell this "heap" to me for $25.00, as it turned out the hole was fixable, and it runs like a brand new car, however the ABS light blinks in 1 second increments constantly. Brakes are squishey... air in lines/calipers? vehicle has 4 wheel disk brakes (if that helps). would an OBD2 reader reveal an error code, though the check engine light is not on?

    rejakwilson: thank you for the speedy response, so what you're saying is basically do a full brake job, right? I would have suspected it to be an electric problem because it is not a steady light.

    chemmierun: I doubt it's a wheel bearing since the vehicle drives free of noise and vibration, I also jacked up the front end to feel for any wheel bearing play (on all four) and found no sign of a wheel bearing problem, (also since there are no wheel bearing sensors)

OBDII reader is Oly good for ECM your Problemis in Brakes that would be Body MODULE a different animal and I would First do A Complete Inspection on Brake System, Squishy Pedal Sounds Like Air in System I Would Correct this Problem By Bleeding Entire System<< AFTER of Coars Replacing Pads As Needed My Bet is the ABS LIGHT WILL Go Out AFter This Always Eliminate ANY Mechanical Problem iin Brake System Before Concluding with A Electronic Signal. I hope this Is Of Help to you If So Please RATE ME THANK YOU

What a buick regal ls does when the fuel pump is bad

If the fuel pump is confirmed as the problem (a series of diagnostic tests are performed, about 1 hour labor time) and it must be replaced then the fuel tank must be removed from the car (the fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank), this is about a 3 hour job plus parts.

The fuel gauge on my '88 Buick Regal limited is not working. I'm not sure where I should start looking, in the dash console area or the fuel tank itself. Any advice as to how to go about repairing it?

It sounds like a problem with the fuel gauge sender unit in the fuel tank which is has worn out and gone open circuit and needs replacing.

1991 Buick regal will not start there is spark

Then it has to be fuel, compression, or air. Check for fuel pressure first, if it has fuel pressure check for compression, must have a minimum of 100 pounds to run. Last check for air supply being restricted(very very very rare). if it has all of these and sprk it has to run as long as its timed right which is impossible to get out of time on a fuel injected engine like this unless someone mixed the plug wires up on the coil pack at which point it will be back firing out the intake and exhaust.

Hy, I'am french and I'm trying to repair an HP Brake pump for a Delco Moraine III ABS on a BUICK Regal Limited. The HP pump leaks. I've try to change the seals but I did'nt find the original. I try...

I think you are talking about the ABS antil lock brake pump. it has a motor and about 6 solenoids that pulse rapidly to make the brakes go on & off rapidly to prevent brake lcok up when slamming on the brakes. Usually the only thing that goes is the motor. But check the fuses & relays first and check the electrical connector for corossion or pin pushed out. Not service able by do it your selfer

How do i change the fuel pump for a 1991 buick regal and how can i tell if it is the fuel pump

turn the key on without starting the engine and listen for the fuel pump to make its 2 or 3 second fuel prime,, you may have to listen carefully, if you dont hear it, check the fuel pump fuse 10 amp red fuse. If its ok check for power at the connector leading to the top of the fuel tank, with it unplugged test with a test light the harness side of the connector between the grey wire and ground for power, the test light should light up when you do the fuel pump prime test again, light will come on for 2 to 5 seconds, if it does replace the fuel pump in the fuel tank >>note if you can hear the pump in the first test, pressure should be around 35 psi .
