With petrol engines it is usually best to start at the spark plugs , being in my sixties and the old school , I use the old methods . Spark plugs indicate a lot , they are the business end of what makes it all work . If they are very fouled up black and oily , it usually indicates bad mixture of fuel and air , if they are oily black it may mean heavy cylinder wear etc spark plug manufactuurers are usually happy to supply a diagram with all the indicators on it .

How to fix a1998 buick century to start fuel filter new and airfilter turning over but not starting gets gas


Did you check for spark? It sounds like you're not getting spark. Check for spark. If you are not getting spark then it sounds like you might have to replace the coil packs. Is it running a L4 engine? If its running a standard chevy L4 its probably the coil packs. Try to replace them check again for spark.

99 lesabre getting hard to start even though it turns over fine. Problem seems to be worse after sitting over night. Smell gas after coming home from driving.


Check out the fuel filter, also look for a fuel leak in the manaflod area. When you go to start it, turn the key on for 10 seconds before you try to start the engine and then turn it over and see if it doesn't start easier. If the fuel pump is getting weak it gives it a chance to build up pressure.

Re-post 1998 buick,century not starting after alot,too much gas?


Sounds like you are flooding the engine with fuel. On the fuel rail you will find a fuel pressure regulator. Try replacing that . It sounds as if the pressure g=regulator isn't working therefore allowing a lot more fuel than it should. Hope this helps you out.
