Question about 1999 Buick Regal
I have a 1999 Regal GS Super Charged, ~74K. Car starts runs 3-5 seconds and dies. If I work the gas pedal can keep it running by reving the engine as soon as I back off the pedal it dies. Hooked up a fuel guage to the fuel rail. Turn key pressure jumps to 48 psi, start the car and pressure drops to almost zero then car dies. As soon as the car dies, pressure jumps again to 48 psi. Fuel filter was changed 1 month ago. Looking for troubleshooting assistance.
I gaurantee that it is the fuel pump ressistor up on the passenger side front behind head lamp assembly you will find the connector with two wires going to it. no need to remove old one install new one and connect wires to new one leave old in. dealer only part but not expensive. dont belive dealer when they try to talk you out of it. This is a kit to relocate a ressistor that has been installed in a poor location. I promise this will fix it. My wifes car did the same thing, took 20 minutes to fix and that is only because i am an electrician and am finicky about where to locate wires etc. the kit comes with installation instructions however they are a little vague. trust me. easy fix. my dealer tried to get me to leave car for repair and said it sounds like the theft detterent system. they were wrong and i was right. dont trust em
