Lost the keys to a 1995 riviera, how do i replace it

You need to either contact the company that made the vehicle, sometimes they keep records of every car they make and can simply recut you a new one. But it may be fairly pricey.

Your other option is to simply contact a locksmith and have them come make you a key. It is still kind of pricey, but so is replacing all the locks or buying a new car.

Why would the car start but cuts right back off?

Probably your security system:
PassKey I, and II
Similar to the VATS system, these vehicles also used a pellet key. You can identify this system by looking at the key. It has a black resistor pellet with a thin metal edge running along the key. The system enables the starter, but shuts down the injectors after initial startup. So the vehicle would start, then die. This system has a "relearn" feature. It was used on these vehicles
Riviera/Reatta 90-01

Is the security light coming on? Are you using the factory key with pellet inside? Do you have another factory key you can try?

What octane gas should I use for a 1996 Buick Century

Most vehicles are designed to run on 87 octane, unless specified different in the owners manual. The knock sensors on your engine will detect an engine knock and advance or ****** the timing accordingly. If your engine is spark knocking, your "Check Engine" light should be on detecting a faulty knock sensor, hope this helps, Gary

My 1995 buick riviera won't start. It won't turn over. You can't hear a click when you turn the key.

it sounds like the starter motor relay could be bad. You also can be looking at a dead battery. Try jumpstarting the vehicle.

Wanna know if i can put a tranny for basic 1995 riviera in my Supercharger

you will most probably need a beefed up tranny to take the power of the engine, I have just installed a 350 supercharged chevy motor in my sons car with a Turbo 350 transmission and a shift kit which I have been told by an auto trans mechanic may not take the power of that engine.
It is costing him $1500 australian to have it reconditioned so I hope it will survive the rides
