Did you change fuel filter? Is there a check engine light on? Does it smell like sulphur? Check for vacuum leaks,bad egr valve or plugged catalytic convertor.

I'm assuming you replaced the fuel filter when you did the pump.
You'll have to try to figure out if you are loosing fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.
Its possible something is failing inside the distributor among other things.
I'm also assuming you have checked the computer for trouble codes.

Think the oil pressure switch keeps the fuel pump running once started. Suggest replacing Oil pressure switch. And no it won't effect oil pressure reading when it goes bad. The switch is a safety device. When you roll it over and the oil pressure drops the switch cuts off the fuel pump. Neat huh? Need some good feedback Thanks!

I have an 1990 buick regal custom and stalls when im griving it then dies can anyone help me on how to fix it.


Sounds to me like a fuel filter.When was the last time it was changed?Because if a car starts and runs till you give it gas under load then dies it is a fuel problem.Start by chaging fuel filter and if problem still persists then next thing to check is fuel pump.

Three things you might want to try: check your fire(make sure your plugs are not fouled and your distributor cap and rotor button are not burned) and also check your fuel filter and air filter.

Check for an air leak in the fuel system. It sounds like the son-in -law did good work but missed an air leak somewhere. The system is not providing enough fuel to the engine. The other possibility is that you are pulling a vacuum on the fuel tank. They have to be vented either through the cap or through the canister. First take the fuel cap off and see if the truck will run. If it does put the fuel cap back on and pull the hose off the canister and try to run the truck. If it runs it was the canister.

Surburban just died


Check to see if the fuel pump is working. It makes a whirring noise when key is turned to start. If you cannot hear tht noise. it is probably a bad fuel pump. Next check if it has spark. remove a sprk plug and using heavy gloves or bundled rag, connect plug to wire and hold thread of spark plug to ground. If it has spark. It will "spark " a bluish spark. If not, then the problem lies in the coils.or distributer . Check that all the wires are good and that they are inserted into the ditributer cap snug . Check cap for cracks also check the rotor. If cap is humid, spray WD40 into it to dissipate any moisture. Check coils (if equipped without distrbutor) . Have car scanned for free at any auto parts store to get a trouble code.
