SOURCE: wanna know if i can put a tranny for basic 1995 riviera in my Supercharger

you will most probably need a beefed up tranny to take the power of the engine, I have just installed a 350 supercharged chevy motor in my sons car with a Turbo 350 transmission and a shift kit which I have been told by an auto trans mechanic may not take the power of that engine.
It is costing him $1500 australian to have it reconditioned so I hope it will survive the rides

SOURCE: What is causing my traction control light to stay

Most likely you have a dirty wheel sensor or unplugged or it has been knocked off each wheel has a sensor the develop-es 2.5 volts dc with a ohm meter you can remove the front wheels and turn the wheels and test for voltage if you don't get any then check for corrosion on the connections especially if you are in areas where there is ice and sad or ice snow and salt. You may have to clean the teeth off as it is a magnet and if it is dirty with brakes dust metal it could lower the wheel voltage output causing the light comes on.

SOURCE: can i still drive a 95 buick riviera with a bad

if your supercharger sounds like tumbling rocks, it is the plastic coupler between the nose cone and the charger body; take off your serpentine belt; chances are the pulley has some play in it but it turns freely; the replacement coupler is a cheap fix; what gets a lil pricey is the labor to replace it... the buick has an alternator bracket that has to come off before you can take the nose off of the supercharger... dont forget to drain the oil from the nose cone with a spray bottle nozzle

My belt for the supercharge broke can I still drive the car?? 1997 riviera

Yes, you can still drive the car. No real damage will occur, but performance will be poor. It's not impossible to change the belts, just time consuming with the way the belt is run around the motor mount bracket.

What is a list of things that could cause a 1997 Buick Riviera supercharged to not start from most likely to least? The battery is fine and so is the starter.

I'd look for a check engine light or pending codes first-Just because you CEL is not on doesn't mean there isn't a problem that the computer hasn't made a note of-

Then I'd replace the crank sensor (common issue on GM's)-listen for the fuel pump priming when the key is turned on (it is fast, only 1 1/2 seconds)-then check for fuel at the fuel rail up top.

Can i put a supercharger on a non supercharge engine on a 1997 buick riviera

can you bolt it up, most probably , will it last, no. the electronics won't match up, and the internals on both the engines are not the same, just asking to blow a good engine

'95 Buick Riviera, SuperCharger. Car won't Start up!

unplug the cam sensor behind the water pump pulley; see if it starts; if it does, shut off engine; replace both cam and crank sensors because crank sensors go out in these engines
