SOURCE: rough idle, dies when trying to give it gas

it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)

SOURCE: 1999 Regal GS Super charged, Starts,runs 3-5 sec and dies

i gaurantee that it is the fuel pump ressistor up on the passenger side front behind head lamp assembly you will find the connector with two wires going to it. no need to remove old one install new one and connect wires to new one leave old in. dealer only part but not expensive. dont belive dealer when they try to talk you out of it. This is a kit to relocate a ressistor that has been installed in a poor location. I promise this will fix it. My wifes car did the same thing, took 20 minutes to fix and that is only because i am an electrician and am finicky about where to locate wires etc. the kit comes with installation instructions however they are a little vague. trust me. easy fix. my dealer tried to get me to leave car for repair and said it sounds like the theft detterent system. they were wrong and i was right. dont trust em

Water pump have anything to do with the fuel pump. Car will start run for a few sec then die. If you give it the gas it will stay running let off it dies. It a 98 regal supper charge

No. They are separate. If the idle is too slow try adjusting the idle screw if it is available on that older vehicle. Many things can cause a rough start / idle and an experienced mech will need to look at it. Good Luck.

My 01 Buick regal with supercharged 3800 won't

it flooded. step on the gas pedal fully and crank the engine; that forces it to go into a clear flood mode by turning off the injectors. it may take a little while, but it will start.
