Question about 1995 Buick Park Avenue
If you hear the fuel pump prime when you turn the key on then most likely the gas has drained out of the lines and back into the tank. Turn the key on and off a few times to prime the system. Use a squirt bottle filled with gas or a can of quick start, to get things started. It might take a while before any gas gets to the injectors. On some cars there's a schrader valve (like a tire valve) on the fuel rail you can push in with a screw diver while you hold a rag over top to catch any gas that comes out with the air that's in the fuel line. Once there's a strong spray of gas stop, and try starting the engine. There might be some corrosion under the ignition coils as well causing hard starting or no starting. Remove the bolts that hold down the coil pack (don't drop the nuts and washers underneath) lift up the coils and use steel wool or fine sand paper to remove corrosion from metal plate and bottom of coils. Then bolt everything back together and it should start and run. If btw you don't hear the fuel pump prime (humming sound coming from the gas tank when you turn the key to run) you need to check for a bad fuse, sticking relay, or bad fuel pump. But I bet the gas just drained back.

You may have to drain the gas from the gas tank and replace the fuel filter. Gas that sit too long will turn in to varnish due to oxidation and will gum up the fuel injectors. Try draining the the gas tank and replacing it with new gas and replacing the fuel filter, once you have that done, *** a can of Sea Foam to your gas tank to clean out the fuel line and fuel injectors. There will be lots of smoke, but that is normal. As to how much smoke, just go on you tube and look up sea foam and you'll see how much so your not in a panic. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running gain.
