Question about 1999 Buick Regal

1 Answer

I have a 1999 buick regal ls dying.

I have a 1999 buick regal ls and you drive down the road and it dies. Then you can crank back up sometimes and sometimes it takes about 10 min. My 1999 regal had the samilar problem. on the day before yesterday, my wife drove about 30 min (high way) to work, (at 6:40 pm)when she arrived her company braking for parking, engine died and no way to get it started (several guys tried it). At 2:00 am next day, when I picked her up for home, I tried to start the car and it could run. Then my wife drove the regal home and park in garage well no problem (I drove my car followed her). I wondered what's the problem, we wanted to make a general check soon. However, yesterday evening, my wife drove it to work as usually, about 20 min when she stopped for a red light, she could not start the car to run (at 6:30 pm), Same problem occurred like the day before. The car was pushed to side way (on a high way). I was called to have a look and send her to work. After there hours later, I drove my friend to have a check, the car could be started and run again. So we drove the two cars home. After 10 min, it died again, so we left it on sideway. At about 2:30am next day (today), I tried to drove it again, it didn't start. At 10am today morning, could started it and drove about 1 km, I stopped it (turned off engine). Then I tried to started it again, it died again. Then it was towed to my drive way at about 10:30am. At 3pm afternoon, I could start it and adjust parking position on my driveway. I would like to know what's the problem and how to fix it. Someones think it's fuel filter or related problem, someone says maw be electrical issue or else. Any opinions and solution?

When my 94 Regal GS frequently wouldn't start for 30 minutes to an hour after being driven, it was the crankshaft positioning sensor that needed to be replaced. I also replaced the harmonic balance pulley. The car ran more smoothly and started everytime.

Check out the TPS on the throttle body. It has three wires to it, The black is the ground and the other two are for high and low resistor readings. If an open occurs the car will die out and very well start again. The tps should have a 1.5 volt setting to operate correctly when new

I have a 1997 Buick Regal LS my wifes car she says when she is driving down the road the car will lose power and then it comes right back it also sometimes will not start. The check engine light comes on...

P0300 is a random misfire code not a Crank Sensor Code. Alot of cars don't rely on the crank sensor for fuel and ignition timing but simply to check misfires. However, some cars do need the crank signal to stay running. It's possible that the sensor has an intermittent short or open in it and the car is dying when the signal is lost. If i remember correctly the crank sensor on a 3.8 is behind the harmonic balancer. So that would require removing the drive belt and balancer to get to it. Not a real challenging procedure but it will likely require the use of a harmonic balancer puller.

Car dies will driveing down road will not start sometime

I would say with the multiple issue the computer on the car is starting to go. You need to have the vehicle checked out by your local mechanic.

I have a 1999 buick regal ls dying.

I have a 99 Buick Regal and it too dies out, but only when I use my turn signals. Sometimes, when trying to start the car...the dash lights would flicker and you can hear some sort of electrical ticking sound. As of today, my car will not start (5/24/09) it hadn't turned over since yesterday. After a process of elimination and searching the net, I think I need a new ignition switch. You may need one as well.
