Question about 1994 Buick Regal Gran Sport
I have a 94 buick regal grand sport, keeps stalling, was told to replace computer, did not work, was told to replace coil pack, ran for a few ( 2 ) days and now it will crank but will not start. it is getting fuel and it does spark. what else could be problem wayne,fl
Sounds like the same thing that was wrong with the 94 GS i recently bought. found the crankshaft postion sensor to be bad. it controls your electronic spark timing which would allow it to turn over with out starting.
also does your stall when you are stopped and at idle or while at driving speed or both? mine would stall at idle and driving speeds. Changed that sensor and have not had any more issues with stalling. sensor should cost around $30-$40 dollars at your local autozone, takes about 2 hours to change just need to pull the harmonic balancer pulley (make sure to use the proper tool or you will bend the pulley) and the sensor is behind the pulley. you will gain easier access to doing the maintenace buy removing the passenger front tire and the little splash gaurd directly behind the tire held on by 3 quick release fasteners. hope this helps you out.

I had the same exact problem and tried everythng from coil packs to ignition safety switches. I was sharing my grief at the local NAPA store when an old timer spoke up out of the blue and said it was my crankshaft sensor. I thought he was crazy but for 24.95 and an hour work I had tried everything else thus my screen name the parts changer. It hasn't failed to start or cut off one single time since and that was 8 months ago. It was happening daily. Little bit of a job since you have to pull the harmonic balancer but that old timer saved me a whole lot of continued frustration. Thought I would share...

Is there reset button? Where is the starter located on a 94 buick regal gran sport.

There is a safety switch in the steering column which prevents start up if not in Park or Nuetral. It caused problems with my cruise control as well. Also the main connection located on the inner left fender feeding some fuses caused my Buick to fail to start. This was due to the copper nut and stud threads were worn. I cured it by using a metal washer to lift the nut up into good thread area.
