Question about 1989 Buick Regal
You have a bad injector, if you have A... as it states on the top of the motor 2.8, 3.1 L MULTI PORT and dies or idles really rough and the exhaust smells like strong gas. most likely you have an injector that has shorted or is shorting out and from my experiences usually after a road trip or using fuel injector cleaner or buying a used car. it will cause half the motor to not run or run poorly VERY POORLY or even burn out 1 injector fuse out of 2 under hard acceleration or idles but as soon as you touch the gas pedal dies. but only if it is a MULTI PORT fuel injected motor. ive heard you want to try and replace them with bosch injectors out of a 2.9l ford bronco/ranger. only attempt if you got the mechanical know how sometimes if not done right will leak gas because of the injectors being kinda different length. research before attempting.
