Question about 1998 Buick Riviera
The check engine light is on and occassionally will blink. The car seems to be running fine. Had a bad feeling about gas I put in the car a few months ago - thought it may have been bad or even accidentally diesel because light came on right after that

That most likely is exactly correct. When that light flashes means damage is being done! You will find the catalyst converter is the victim. Only when flashing is this occurring. Should shut down asap when this happens

you can not put a regular 3800 intake in place of the 3800 super charged engine,the compression ratio is lower than the regular 3800 engine.......!

Has the fuel filter been chg. lately. If it has, maybe a fuel pressure test is in order. Fuel pump might be geeting weak and does not show up until it gets warmed up. Fuel pumps are a common problem on this type of cars.

It NEVER was the camshaft sensor! Unless, you've removed the engine lately, which I doubt.
RUN to Advance Auto Parts and buy a can of "SeaFoam" and add to your gas tank per instructions...drive at least 100 miles and the problem should go away...IF it doesn't you'll have to replace the O2 sensors in the exhaust system...Any good mechanic should be able to do this for much less $$ than the dealership DO NOT go to the dealer for repairs!

Make sure that you have the ventilation tubing when replacing the battery. The car is designed to vent battery gases from beneath the car. Substituting a different type battery (without vent ports, a small hole that is located at each end of the battery ) or if you decide to use the battery without the ventilation tubing, you run the risk of an explosion. This is due to the proximity of the battery to the fuel pump, which is also located beneath the seat.Underhood batteries vent naturally into the air within the engine compartment. In your car there is a small hole in front of your battery that leads to the underside of your car.Your tubing is designed to carry the battery's vapors way and direct it out of your car through this hole.
