A tune up consists of changing distributor cap and rotor, wires and spark plugs. I would check to make sure the wires were replaced properly in the correct sequence and were tightly connected to the spark plugs and distributor cap. Next, if they are are tight, I would make sure wires are not touching anything that could ground them out. Looking at them at night with the lights out sometimes reveals a stray spark grounding out on the engine. Besides making sure you seated the rotor into the cap, I would finally check each plug for the proper gag...they don't come pre-gapped anymore. Hope this helps.

1994 Buick Park Avenue: will not start with out jumping, Replaced the battery, problem remains. Can jump start the car and drive it but when shut down for a few minutes it will not restart using battery...

QUESTION: Without a jump, does the motor crank when you turn the key to "START"?


If you can jump start it, then you know you have spark, fuel and compression; you know your starter and ignition are fine.

My guess is a loose/missing connection at the positive battery terminal for your starter.

My positve battery cabel was loose, when i tighten it, the starter was trying to tun over with out the key in the ignition.

When you tightened the battery connection you may have twisted the cable on the starter and shorted it to the solonoid lead causing the starter to engage . Check the connections on the starter and make sure there are not touching each other. Hope this helps.

Hi ,the starter tuns normal but engine wont start sometimes

When was last healthy tune up? I would change plugs, wires, all filters including FUEL filter then run a good fuel system cleaner through it like STP or Gumout. This will give you a good "ground zero" point for reliability.

Then starting my car it sputter and the starter goes into a clicking sound. My dad says it needs a tune-up with new spark plugs and wires.

Nope, click is solenoid on starter not fully engaging....either new battery (see if changes when on a jump start) or new starter motor

2000 buick lesabre runs rough. It started running rough and the I drove it around for a while and it was okay for several weeks and then started running rough again and staying that way.

First I would change where I buy gas.And perform a tun up,start with the spark plugs,if it runs okay your done if not #2 change your wires.And clean your throttle body with carb cleaner.

1993 buick roadmaster silnoyd missing.

The starter and solenoid are underneath the exhaust manifold on the passenger side. You need to raise the vehicle and remove this assembly from below. There are two large bolts which secure the starter to the engine block. There may or may not be shims placed between the starter and the block. DON'T LOSE THOSE SHIMS! There is also a bracket with a stud and nut that supports the front end of the starter. There may also be a heat shield to protect the starter from the hot exhaust manifold. DO NOT THROW THE HEAT SHIELD AWAY. If you do, your new starter won't last 6 months. The heat will destroy it. Once the starter is loose, lower it by hand. You will now have access to remove the two wires from the solenoid. These can be tricky to remove. If in doubt, have a professional do it.
To install, reassemble in reverse order.
