    I have the same exact problem. Car dies and then restarts just fine. I can't figure it. Must be a problem with the electrical system in '94 Buicks.

    My daughters 94 regal also stalls. Put it in park and starts right back up. Had new plugs and wires installed. Also new fuel filter. No errors on diagnostic check.

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.

    My name is David ,I live in Austin Texas and do alot of mecchanic / technician work around town. I do have my certifications and have work at dealerships and Autozone as well...with all that being said... if you are not getting spark on this vehicleand it is not likely the coils or the module. The crank position sensor the device responsible for reading the angle ( timing ) of the crankshaft. The crankshaft has notches in it that pass either through or near the crank position sensors magnetic tip. The ignition module then interprets the signal and allows signal ( electrical current) to pass into module and on to ignition coils...then on to spark plugs via spark plug wires/cables. The crank position sensor is located on the back side of the engine in the gap between the engine and transmission housing. it is held in place by one 8mm (metric size) or 5/16 standard size bolt. Use a wrench though unless you have small hands or a 1/4 drive socket set. 9.99 times out of ten it will start if there are no other issues

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...

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.

When my 94 Regal GS frequently wouldn't start for 30 minutes to an hour after being driven, it was the crankshaft positioning sensor that needed to be replaced. I also replaced the harmonic balance pulley. The car ran more smoothly and started everytime.

99 buick regal won't start


Hello, the Regal seems to have that problem. Insert your key in the ignition and turn it but do not turn the car on, make sure you here the fuel pump kick in, then at the end of you r fuel rail there should be a cap, remove it, use a very thin screw driver and push that part in, Be careful it's going to squirt gas, that's a good sign. If it does not, check your fuel filter. And last, if nothing above described works first check your negative wire on your fuel pump, second your injectors, they might be clogged.
Best of luck, God Bless.

Did you check the glove box for fuses? There is a switch in the steering column too that could be the issue.

Car keeps stalling


A fault code reader would be a huge help in diagnosing general problems.
It plugs in under left side dash and gives specific failure codes (this is what mechanics use).
You can buy an OBD-I code reader (for most cars before 96) or a OBD-II which reads all cars from 1996-on online for $80. It will also reset faults or engine trouble lights.

You may want to check your fuel pressure with a gauge.

You could possibly have a blown head gasket. Is there an awful amount of white smoke coming out of the tailpipe? If so, that's likely to be your problem.
