Question about 1999 Buick Regal

2 Answers

Please help! car dies...mechanics don't know what the problem is!

I drive a 1999 Buick Regal.....there are no check engine or other lights on....my car just shuts completely down ......i'll be stopped at a stop light and the rpm gage will be around 1 and then it will drop suddenly down to zero and that is when the car dies. I took it to the shop they told me I needed to replace the IAC....which I had them do. The car still kept dying. Then they told me that I must have filled up with bad gasoline and to go out and fill up the tank with a medium grade.

I did that also and I have driven about 20-30 miles....problem is still there. Tonight when I was coming home it did something really crazy.....all of the sudden it felt like I had no power steering fluid....it was so hard to turn the wheel....its like the whole car just went crazy.

I don't know what's going on and i'm just a girl who doesn't know much about cars. I was trying to find the power steering fluid to see if I had enough in there and I can't even find it under the hood.

Does anybody have any ideas about what the problem is?

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

I have a 1999 Buick regal Ls and my oil pressure light is on, it came on right after I got my oil changed.My car is running fine and I don't know why my light would be on.What can be the problem?The...


It can be the sending unit or the oil pump really has low pressure, have the oil pressure checked in the engine, if that is ok then the sender or the wiring to it is defective. DO NOT DRIVE THIS CAR UNTIL THIS IS CHECKED, YUOU WILL DESTROY THE ENGINE IF THE PRESSURE IS LOW. A NEW ENGINE IS ABOUT $3500.00, DO YOU WANT TO CHANCE THAT?

I have a 99 Buick Regal GS, engine will start and run for few seconds then it will die.


I had a similar problem....my 98 regal GS did the same. There is a two stage fuel pump resistor located in the right inner finder. It was corroded and open. The fix requires relocating new resister on firewall. Fix was $165.00 + tax to my mechanic and runs like new now. Hard to diagnose problem per mechanic.

I have a 1999 buick regal ls dying.


I have a 99 Buick Regal and it too dies out, but only when I use my turn signals. Sometimes, when trying to start the car...the dash lights would flicker and you can hear some sort of electrical ticking sound. As of today, my car will not start (5/24/09) it hadn't turned over since yesterday. After a process of elimination and searching the net, I think I need a new ignition switch. You may need one as well.

1999 Buck Regal Stalls While Driving


Possible solution to stalling '99 Buick. My '99 Buick Century would die for no apparant reason with no error codes. After 4 days at a Buick dealership and many frustrated mechanics, the problem was corrosion from under the battery location. The wiring harness had small amounts of corrosion internally. Check the wiring under the battery for any corrosion. This has been the problem on more than 1 vehicle that we are aware of. No service bulletin has been issued by Buick.
