I presume its got an auto box check idle speed as could be on low side as revers is a direct drive gear so might take up the engine torque a bit quick

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

Have you ascertained whether your fuel pump is functioning as it should? It might be worthwhile to remove the fuel line after the pressure regulator and allow it to pump for several minutes, catching the fuel in a container of course. With the hose free, the pump should continue to work rather than shutting off after pressure is attained.
Fuel pumps seem to be a fairly frequent problem in GM cars. Unfortunately, if it is a failing pump, I think yours is located in the gas tank.

I have an 1990 buick regal custom and stalls when im griving it then dies can anyone help me on how to fix it.


Sounds to me like a fuel filter.When was the last time it was changed?Because if a car starts and runs till you give it gas under load then dies it is a fuel problem.Start by chaging fuel filter and if problem still persists then next thing to check is fuel pump.

Just changed water pump which had frozen, now when running it will die during acceleration but will start back up. Also, the oil and exhaust smell like gas.


Clarify what U mean by die? The gas smell is probably you need a tune up, or your fuel injectors could be at fault.

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.

Car Dies


My car idled OK but not great and used to die during stops at times. I replaced the spark plugs and wires without a difference. Shortly after the car died with very little power, just enough to limp home. I had a shop fix it so I didn't guess what was wrong. They replaced the Ignition Module and some of the Coil Packs. They had to replace the Spark Plugs I just put in due to fouling. If you are smelling gas you are putting your cat at risk and might have a more expensive problem later. It cost me $500 but it runs better than ever.
