89 Buick Regal

The car stalls out on a regular basis but before it does the low coolant and service engine lights come on. We have sprayed the carborator and put fuel cleaner in the tank however this will only work for a few minuetes then it will die again any ideas on what the problem may be?

I'm not sure why you have a carborator on 89 regal, BUT if you haven't try replacing the spark plugs and wires you might want to try that if you have factory wire (the carbon composite wires it comes with are terrible). But that might help. If not maybe check and see if your fuel pump is working properly (ex. weak pump, bad fuel line, ect...)

2000 buick Regal run hot and hasitate when running. no engene light.


It`s a 2000 buick regal ls. make sure when it gets hot eh fans are running. There is a coolant sensor just below the top radiator hose ON THE ENGINE. This sensor tells the fans when to go on when the engine gets hot and also serves as a low coolant sensor. unplug the sensor and replace it. use a open end or box wrench. if your quick you can replace it and only loose a few ounces of coolant. Hope this helps and God Bless :O)

My 1994 buick regal gran sport jumps a lot when at a stop sign or red light, but when i accelerate the problem goes away. also when in park my RPM's drops extremely low and it sounds as if its goi


This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Water leaking near top of engine 3.8 Buick Regal LS ?


Wipe any coolant off your engine make sure there is coolant in the car. Run engine for a bit. shut off engine and look for wet spot. Before this see if there are any cracks in rubber hoses or they are loose. It could be a thermostat gasket or warped housing to. Its hard to say without seeing it.

How many miles does an 1997 Buick Lesabre usually last?


Gm says a 3800 engine should last ove 400,000 miles with normal service. This engine for 97 will probably need a new plastic intake manifold one day. They will leak coolant into the combustion chamber and some un-educated mechanics will tell you that it needs head gaskets as they don't have a head gasket problem. The oil pan may leak on this car too, replace it with a fel-pro perma dry gasket and it will stop it. Mine has 297,000+ miles on it.

Low coolant sensor on a 1998 buick


The coolant sensor should be located near where the upper radiator hose is attached to the engine and has a wire connector on it with 2 wires. It's the only sensor near there. Then there's the sensor that'll be attached to your reservoir tank somewhere along the firewall

1990 Regal Coupe 3.1 engine. Low Coolant Light Stays Lit


This is a COMMON Problem that GM had with the Level Sensor Curciut, And they Never Correctly Addressed it. I Have on ocations Replaced the Sensor and that Corrected the Problem, BUT Other times the Light STAYS ON No matter What, I have tracked the Wires and all I Have Ever Found was the Plug Being FAULTY. So if A NEW Coolant LEVEL SENSOR Does NOT Turn off the Light, try Replacing the PLUG Itself.
