You can keep trying but unless you know what to look for and what tests to run i would advise you to call a local mechanic to have a look,this age of vehicle has a module ,it could be that ,fuel problem ?? as well so unless you know a lot about cars call a professional to kick it in the right spot for you

What is the firing order for a 1986 buick regal 305 engine


The firing order is the same, 18436572
But, depending on who made the engine, the firing order may go cw or ccw around the cap. You need to check which way the rotor turns when you crank it, then follow the firing order in that direction. Sometimes the number 1 spark plug tower is marked on the cap, if not, put the number one cylinder on top dead center of compression stroke, which ever coil tower the rotor is leading into is number one, then follow the firing order in correct direction of rotation. You driver side cylinder bank should be numbered, 1357 from front to back, passenger side 2468, front to back.
If you replace plugs and plug wires, one at a time, you won't have this problem. Goodluck.

Change starter capacitor


Visual inspection to confirm dist rotor is turning. Check pick up coil under rotor, 2 small wires, green and white tend to break, pull on them slightly to check. The rotor can burn thru and short to ground. try these.

No spark wont fire 1986 buick regal


If the starter cranks very fast when you are trying to start to check for spark, it is a possiblity that you have a busted timing chain. This explains the rapid sound of you starter engaging, because the crankshaft is not being turned and the camshft is not either therefore no spark is made.
