Question about 1995 Buick Regal

1 Answer

My car dies and won't start for a few hours

It seems like it runs fine for a week or two. And then we'll get out somewhere and it won't start. But after an hour or two, it starts like nothing was ever wrong.

Try moving little left-right steering-wheel in the same time try to turn on the key.
If doesn't work, try one more time easily. Good luck!

My car is sputtering and dying. If I try to restart it, it will immediately go into sputtering/dying mode. If I wait a while an hour or so it will start up and drive fine.

When was the last time that the carburetor was stripped and cleaned? Also have you checked the fuel filter? Finally, the problem seems to come and go as the engine is run (and it gets hot) check that the fuel line and any electrical cables are well away from the hot engine as far as is possible.

Car starts and dies

Clean is required in the carburetor as well as this could also be due to water content in the fuel tank. Spark plug cleaning will also help.

Have a '94 S-10 Blazer Tahoe 4X4 and it starts

My suspicion is a starter going bad. Sometimes when starters get old and worn they will start good when the engine is cold but not when the engine is warmed up. Did you perhaps notice that lately is seemed to drag when you tried starting, especially warm or it seemed to crank a little slower? I'd replace the starter. Hope this helps.

Sounds like the fuel pump got air in the system. You may have to bleed out the air. Then it will run. Check the fuel tank for fuel first.
