Question about 1994 Buick Regal Gran Sport
This Regal's been sitting in my mom's garage for at least 4 years. Last summer she got it all tuned up, fixed everything that was having problems, and put the car back in use. It's been running fine up until about a month ago or so when i noticed an unnatural sound. the car was a couple miles overdue for an oil change so i got that done and the noise seemed to go away. About two weeks after the oil change she started acting up again; noise came back and she'd shut off at particular times, mainly when i'd be slowing down and taking a sharp turn (going into parking spots, etc). Lately the clanking noise has been getting worse until last night she shut off on the road and wouldn't turn back on. We finally got her started again but it was a rough ride home. The noise was getting increasingly worse and the car was shutting off periodically. The oil gauge said the oil was low but i knew it had oil. i checked it again this morning when the engine was cooled down and sure enough there was plenty of oil. The car won't start at all now. Doesn't even crank. The battery is in perfect condition btw. What do i do??
Sounds like you need an internal inspection of the engine. Valves, lifters, rods. pistons and rings etc. One of the worst things for cars is to let them sit for years.
