COULD BE THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR. LOCATED ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE ENGINE NEAR THE FREEZE PLUGS. I HAVE HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM AND THIS SHOULD FIX IT. YOU WILL NEED AN 8MM WRENCH TO REMOVE THE BOLTS THAT HOLD IT IN PLACE. BEST OF LUCK. KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA.

Got 2000 buick regal wont start turns over trys to start but doesnt


Could be multiple issues.
#1 Is there gas in the tank? #2 is it bad gas ? (car sitting awhile) may need to put HEET in it and put in some good gas. You may have water in your fuel line. #3 is your fuel pump working? Your fuel pump relay may be bad. Hard to answer online.
Sounds like your battery is good and you are getting spark? I'd ask a local mechanic to take a look & trouble shoot.

Why won't it start?


Check ignition wires, too. They can get old and let the spark leak out.

No spark wont fire 1986 buick regal


If the starter cranks very fast when you are trying to start to check for spark, it is a possiblity that you have a busted timing chain. This explains the rapid sound of you starter engaging, because the crankshaft is not being turned and the camshft is not either therefore no spark is made.

1989 buick regal 2.8 stalls out. it will start and run well for 5 seconds and then just die. it starts better with a spark plug disconnected. fuel pressure is 40lbs. plenty of spark from coils. replaced...


The catalytic converter maybe clogged. This would result in a car starting then cutting off. you can unbolt the catalytic converter see if that solve the problem. Then if that was the problem replace it with a new one. Goodluck.

Need location of ecm/ecu on 88-93 buick regal. parked car next day would not start,no spark , center coil bad , replaced it car ran fine for about 2 weeks, now car won't start no spark but coils test good,...


my name is David ,I live in Austin Texas and do alot of mecchanic / technician work around town. I do have my certifications and have work at dealerships and Autozone as well...with all that being said... if you are not getting spark on this vehicleand it is not likely the coils or the module. The crank position sensor the device responsible for reading the angle ( timing ) of the crankshaft. The crankshaft has notches in it that pass either through or near the crank position sensors magnetic tip. The ignition module then interprets the signal and allows signal ( electrical current) to pass into module and on to ignition coils...then on to spark plugs via spark plug wires/cables. The crank position sensor is located on the back side of the engine in the gap between the engine and transmission housing. it is held in place by one 8mm (metric size) or 5/16 standard size bolt. Use a wrench though unless you have small hands or a 1/4 drive socket set. 9.99 times out of ten it will start if there are no other issues... your welcome
