Your picture won't come up. If you are getting oil in the air filter housing, check your pcv system (Positive Crankcase Ventilation). Your pcv valve may be plugged or not working.
And just so you know, it is not a carburetor. It is a throttle body assembly with throttle body injection. You have fuel injection with injectors mounted in the assembly-much more reliable than a carburetor.

    Ok I fixed it .. It's running a lot better .. But I think is coming from the Carburetor now .. Really can't tell tho .. Just a lil oil ..

    Well, there are just no oil passages around that area. You may be experiencing "blow-by", where worn piston rings or engine parts allow exhaust gasses to get into the crankcase and build up pressure, overwhelming the pcv system. So the clean air hose from the air breather to the valve cover, which is supposed to draw fresh air INTO the valve cover, is actually pushing crankcase fumes from the valve cover into the air breather. Pull the hose off at the breather, so hose is open to outside. Run the car that way. It should stop putting oil into the air breather, but the hose should have some visible fumes or smoke-looking gunk going into the atmosphere. Try it anyway and see if that is the problem. Pretty old car. Might be time for a replacement, sorry to say that, as much as I like the older cars-easier to work on, lol.

More than likely (and we will hope) it is the oil sending unit. In comparison it is a very cheap and quick fix to replacing the oil pump. Auto Zone has a pretty good componet location section that has tips for replacement if you cant find the sending unit or the oil pump. Try that first it may save you a lot of work.

SOURCE: buick regal 92 3.8L Horrible fuel mileage

Sounds like you might have an oxygen sensor problem. Your catalytic converter(s) maybe defective or dirty. That in turn can dirty up the oxygen sensor. A defective oxygen sensor will send faulty info to the computer, interpreting the fumes as cold (even when the engine warms up). That causes the computer to adjust the fuel mixture to very rich, giving you poor gas mileage and the fuel smell. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: Where is the Oil Pump located on a Buick Regal 95

In the oil pan,near the transmission end.The aluminum pan on this engine is cross bolted to the main bearing caps,making it a bit tough to get on and off.

It is in the timing cover. Never have seen one that has went bad. 20+ years at a buick dealership. Remove oil pan and clean out the pick-up screen, replace oil pressure sensor and use a ac delco pf47 oil filter.

It can be the sending unit or the oil pump really has low pressure, have the oil pressure checked in the engine, if that is ok then the sender or the wiring to it is defective. DO NOT DRIVE THIS CAR UNTIL THIS IS CHECKED, YUOU WILL DESTROY THE ENGINE IF THE PRESSURE IS LOW. A NEW ENGINE IS ABOUT $3500.00, DO YOU WANT TO CHANCE THAT?
