Sounds like you need to replace the fuel pump relay which is about $13 at Autozone. It is simple to replace. It is under the hood on the passenger side right behind the headlights.

    Thanks but since posting I replaced the fuel pump, and filter. Now being told it is not sparking when starting and need some ignition thing and coils. It makes no sence that it sparks easier when it is warm, I just dont know.

1990 Buick Century Custom 4-Dr Sedan 3300 V6. New motor, fuel pump, fuel filter, alternator and starter. Turns over, though it won't fire.


Check your fuel pressure at the schraeder valve that is on the fuel rail. If you have fuel pressure, check for spark.If no spark, then ignition diagnosis is needed.If no fuel pressure, check for diconnected, or pinched wires, as this can easily happen during an engine swap.

My Buick Century has started to run a little rough and going through gas more. Besides just the spark plugs and tune up, what could the problem be? Seems as though there is interference with air flow.


running rough, could be a few possible things besides spark plugs, and wires!
air filter, fuel filter, fuel injectors, fuel pump, coil pack, Etc.
Id start with the air and fuel filters!
Good luck, Hope this helps!

Car died. changed fuel pump and both filters. car will turn over but will not start. any help is appreciated.


Check for spark and fuel as a starting point. If you're getting fuel pressure at the rail, then the fuel pump and filters are not the problem.

Possible crankshaft sensor if the spark is not getting to the spark plugs in the 1992 Buick Century.

Shuts down after getting hot 1992 buick century custom has high mileage transmission is okay last tune up at 60,000 one plug was not changed hard to get to


What you need to do is check and see if your losing fuel or spark when it dies.If it`s spark then you probably have a bad ignition module.If fuel you will have to check the fuel pressure.If it is a 3.3 then it should be 41-47 psi.If not check fuel filter for being plugged.If ok then replace fuel pump.Hope this helps.Good luck.

STARTS AND SHUTS DOWN AFTER 2 SECONDS 95 BUICK CENTURY V6


Not enough fuel pressure.
Hopefully, it might be a clogged fuel filter, start there... replace it. ($9 AutoZone).
Could also be fuel pump or the fuel pressure valve is stuck open, allowing fuel to drain back to the gas tank (no fuel in line).

New pump still no fuel


Its not unheard of for a pump to go bad that soon, can you hear it run when you turn the ignition to on position, if not chk. fuse and relay and all electrical connections and grounds, If it does run get a fuel pressure guage and chk. the pressure.
