Question about 1999 Buick Century

1 Answer

New fuel pump on my 1998 Buick Regal GS my mileage went down.

I had the fuel pump and entire fuel line replaced and now my mileage has been cut by about half. There was a fuel leak but the new line fixed that. there is no fuel smell any longer and the car runs strong. only the mileage now stinks.

    There is no more smell since the new fuel line was installed. but the mileage has gone down quite a bit after these parts were installed.

    do you mean there is a smell inside the car still ?? &stinks near the speedometer or dash board ?? if it does then it may be spilt fuel in the carpet & or the underfelt beneath carpet

Where is the mileage fuse at on a 1998 buick regal GS


There is no fuse, if it's an LCD screen then it has just stopped working. Sometimes you can get lucky and pull the gauge pod cluster out and replace the bulbs that provide back lighting for the gauges and you can fix it that way.

You have a problem in the fuel pump relay circuit for sure then. I'm betting the relay, but it could be that dropping resistor.
