Check out the TPS on the throttle body. It has three wires to it, The black is the ground and the other two are for high and low resistor readings. If an open occurs the car will die out and very well start again. The tps should have a 1.5 volt setting to operate correctly when new

Battery will stay charged


Have the battery charged and tested and then test the charging system. You should never run a car with a very dead battery. that will burn out the alternator.

I have a 1995 Buick Regal with a 3.8 V6. Car will start just fine on a cold start but will not continue to run unless you hold the engine on at least 3000 rpms for about 30 seconds. it will then idle just...


i think you might be right it sounds like your engine is getting over fed fuel you are probably not getting very good fuel mileage either the 3.8 and 5.0 would defintely require the same volume of fuel it is probably playing havoc on the pressure regulators i would get another fuel pump and start there

I have a 1999 Buick Regal ls car run out of gas


A couple of possibilities. 1st, check to see that the fuel pump is working. When you turn the key to on position (not all the way to crank the engine over), can you hear the pump? You should hear a humming sound from the gas tank . The fuel in the tank actually keeps the fuel pump from overheating. It is possible the pump is shot. It would be a good idea to change the fuel filter, as it may be plugged up from sediment from the bottom of the tank.

I have a 1999 buick regal ls dying.


I have a 99 Buick Regal and it too dies out, but only when I use my turn signals. Sometimes, when trying to start the car...the dash lights would flicker and you can hear some sort of electrical ticking sound. As of today, my car will not start (5/24/09) it hadn't turned over since yesterday. After a process of elimination and searching the net, I think I need a new ignition switch. You may need one as well.
