Question about 1990 Buick Reatta
I have a very annoying problem with this car not starting sometimes,especially when im really depending on it. runs great when i finally get it started,either hot or cold., when it hesitates on firing i can pretty well tell its not going to start "with the starter" but if im in position to where i can drift start it , it starts very quickly.usually within 5 feet. it might start 99times out of 100 with the starter, i hestiate to blame it on the apex seals because the motor was rebuilt recently, less than 1000 miles on motor. and it runs so strong when its running. Thanks for your help
Its your fuel injectors. they are leaking fuel into the cylinder and flooding out the engine. next time it happens pinch off the fuel line where it inters the engine with a pair of smooth jawed pliers and have another person start it... it will fire up quite easily. i had the same probleb and put a manual fuel shut off under the hood. it was cheaper than buying injectors.

I would start by checking the battery to see if it is still working on all it's cells.You can do this buy putting a battery charger with a 2amp setting and a gauge on it to let you know if it is fully charged.Let it charge over night and check the gauge if not at 100% from that long charge I would change the battery.If ok your starter may be drawing to much amps to let the ignition system to fire good enough for starting.If so try changing the starter.
