Question about 1993 Buick Regal

1 Answer

Car dying I have a '93 Buick Regal Custom. Over the past year she has gotten progressively worse with a stalling problem. She's good for about the first 15 minutes of driving but once she gets to a heated operating temperature she just sputters out. I have to let her sit for about 15 minutes and then I can try again, but the only way she stays on is if she is continually revved above 2k rpm. She is not overheating. I don't know if it's as simple as fouled plugs or something worse. Also, on top of that, last night we drove her around for about 15 or 20 minutes and then pulled into a Speedway momentarily. When we came out and tried to start her we got nothing at all; no starter click, nothing resembling an ignition trying to engage. We got gauge activity, lights, radio, etc., but nothing from the engine. And about a week ago my speedometer and tachometer either wouldn't work or would register at bizarre settings. The battery and alternator are new. It's like she just gave up entirely. **A possible interesting sidenote, my brother-in-law (from where we got the car) installed a remote starter about a year or so before we bought her. We got her in May of '07. Do I have wiring AND engine issues or are the two related??

    we nothing. however, by now we've already replaced the starter and she did start right up. still having the freakin' stalling issue, though. we took the egr valve off and cleaned it out but there was some kind of fuzz in that hole in the crankcase where the egr goes. it did sit on a farm for close to a year and who knows what kind of **** could be crammed in there. i would have replaced the egr valve entirely but mine is funky and costs almost 200.00. i work at advance auto parts but even with my discount it would still be like 170.

    i'm still lost, but thank u though!

I have an 1990 buick regal custom and stalls when im griving it then dies can anyone help me on how to fix it.

Sounds to me like a fuel filter.When was the last time it was changed?Because if a car starts and runs till you give it gas under load then dies it is a fuel problem.Start by chaging fuel filter and if problem still persists then next thing to check is fuel pump.
