I have a 1995 Buick Regal with a 3.8 V6. Car will start just fine on a cold start but will not continue to run unless you hold the engine on at least 3000 rpms for about 30 seconds. it will then idle just...


i think you might be right it sounds like your engine is getting over fed fuel you are probably not getting very good fuel mileage either the 3.8 and 5.0 would defintely require the same volume of fuel it is probably playing havoc on the pressure regulators i would get another fuel pump and start there

If the trans.oil is dark brown in color and smell's burnt your tranny is probably on it's last leg.If tou have bad pump pressure or low oil you will have to rev the eng to get it to build enough pressure to move.Your detent cable or kick down cable is for passing,when you step on the gas when passing someone this cable is pulled causing the trans. to go into a lower gear and when you let off the gas it should shift back into a higher gear.if it's out of adjustment it will kickdown to soon or to late.If your car has alot of miles it may be in need of a filter and fluid change,but usually when slipping occures its to late and you will need a replacement tranny.Hope this was helpfull.

First... stop starting the car up until it is fixed. second check your engine oil to make sure nothing was added to it that will damage the motor... it sounds more like your car was vandalized then a crook stole parts from it.
go back and ask the mechanic to write down the name of the part and also examine under the hood near looking for any wiring that is unplugged.
only thing i can think of close to that would be a purge valve.

Mini van wont go into gear only park


it sounds like the transmission linkage may have came loose.the brake has to be depressed to make it go into gear.so check this switch.there are inexpensive repair manuals at just about any auto parts store.(around $25) the manual will show you where these components are located.
