It could be the petrol filter which wants changing it is underneath the car just forward of the petrol tank on the drivers side; It should be behind a plastic cover which will have to be removed to access the filter.
It could be a number of other engine related problems, for instance a H.T. cable from the distributor to the coil could be breaking down! it could be a crack in the Dist. cap! which is arcing inside the cap or even be one of the plugs/ or lead! which is packing up Or even a air/vacuum leak! somewhere. There are diagnostic code scanners for sale on e-bay which could point you in the right direction. They are pretty easy to read and cost 14.99 english pounds plus around the same again for postage.

    Where is mass air flow senser on a 1989 buick regal


    Thanks for using FixYa. The BUICK Regal Mass Air Flow sensor is usually installed in the intake air duct between the air filter and the throttle body mounted on the intake manifold. Also check the throttle body for mass air flow sensors location.
    On mass air flow sensors with a sense wire, this wire can become contaminated with dust particles. These particles can be removed with automotive solvents that are safe for the use on mass air flow sensors. Before replacing the mass air flow sensor check for air leaks in the connecting air ducts and intake manifold. These leaks can cause similar symptoms as a malfunctioning mass air flow sensor.

    Bad or contaminated BUICK Regal Mass Air Flow sensor can possibly cause a wide range of various vehicle drivability problems such as stalling, especially when the engine is cold, misfiring, poor acceleration, etc. In addition, a problem with the Mass Air Flow sensor often causes the "check engine" or "service engine soon" light in the vehicle instrument panel to illuminate.

    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
