Question about 1989 Buick Century

1 Answer

1989 buick century won't start. New fuel pump was put on. It seems like the car is flooding with gas. When you crank the car gasoline shoots threw the spark plug holes when you take the plugs out. I also saw a little gas in the air filter compartment. The car won't start. A mechanic claimed that everything looks good electrically. He put it on the computer.

Check the fuel pressure regulator,and the fuel return line all the way back to the fuel tank,one ,or the other is stopped up,or the fuel regulator is closed up.I would check the fuel return line first,this is the most likely problem.

2003 Buick century want start


what have you tried so far? All mechanics go after the fuses first. In the cab and under the hood. Silly as it sounds one fuse on todays cars stops the hole shabang LOL If she is cranking fast with no resistants might be no fuel. fuel pump time then. Try this it worked for me open the air breather and shoot starting fluid in the it and have someone crank it. if she starts your not getting fuel and its either the fuse or you need a new fuel pump. Located in the gas tank. simple fix. if you can put a 10 piece kids puzzle together you`ll figure out how to change your fuel pump. Either way let me know what happens. Hope this helps a little, good luck and God Bless

Why wont my 1989 buick lesabre wont start ?


Does it crank? Or there's no crank no start? If it cranks safely get under the vehicle and bang on the fuel tank while someone holds the key in the crank position with the vehicle in park. If it starts it is most likely the fuel pump.

have you put a fuel pressure gauge on it if so how many ponds of pressure does it have also if this is a distributerless car turn engine with a socket see if there is slack in rotation if you turn counter clockwise 1/4 turn stop and turn clockwise if so you more than likely have a stretched timing chain or jumped time

I had a Grand Prix one time (basically the same car) that had a problem with the fuel pump harness. This harness plugs into the top of the fuel pump as you know, and into the floorboard underneath the car. Check the floorboard end for corrosion or broken wires.

My car cut off while driving. wouldnt start back up. check the gas line to the engine and no gas is coming through. what could be my problem and do i fix it


its the fuel pump going bad and also your fuel filter might need a new filter because if the fuel filter is plugged up to the point that the fuel pump is working too hard to try to pump the gasoline through the filter and can destroy the fule pump so if there is no gasoline coming through the gas lines that means check for filter and pump. Usually some times you can hear the fuel pump working on some models like a humming sound in the back of car.

1993 Buick Century, what makes the car stall when giving it gas, and engine seems to want to stop, if no gas is getting through. Other keep saying check gas filter, fuel pump or relay. by the way where is...


The relay, if it has electric fuel pump, is in the engine compartment either mounted on the sides or firewall or in a fuse box in the compartment. Check your timing and run carburetor/Injector cleaner cleaner though the engine. Try replacing plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor as well. It sounds as if you are flooding not running out of fuel.
