Question about 1995 Buick Regal

1 Answer

95 Regal 3.8 Runs great but today started

95 Regal 3.8 Runs great but today started intermittant incidents where the car starts to chug when depressing the accelerator. It always idles fine. When you press the accelerator it chugs badly. I changed the fuel filter today. Same thing. Sometimes all of a sudden everything is fine for several miles then out she goes again. Never stalls.

Try a new distributor cap and rotor button,they are known problem areas.If the problem is not in the distributor then you will likely need to replace the catalytic converter,a plugged converter will not let the engine get to full horse power because it can't get rid of the fuel as fast as it is coming into the engine,which is not a problem for the engine at lower rpms but it is a problem when you need the power.

2001 Hyundai accent wouldn't start this morning after sitting two days prime and no codes kept screwing with it I primed and runs then only primes sometimes but still runs great miss chug


Hi Miss Chug:
I'd start by using some carb/injector cleaner and make sure that the fuel delivery system is working properly.
If this is a carb type engine, make sure the automatic choke is not sticking.

2001 Buick Regal just dies going down the road but starts again


Hi there,

Your vehicle's onboard computer will most likely tell you what's wrong - it could be one of many things relating to electrics, fuel or both.

I recommend you go to an "authorised" Buick service agent (who has the correct code reader) to get the codes read off your vehicle's computer. The dealer can explain what the codes mean.

Cheers,
