Hard start rough idle 06 olds bravado?

You are on the least costly approach which is excellent...I prefer the STP Super Concentrated black bottle...but Gumout products are proven...(I saw a demonstration of the STP product...Also clean out the air filter box, clean replace the air sure to spray out the throttle body with cleaner...if you can identify the Mass Air Flow Sensor...spray this with MAF spray cleaner ONLY...this does not damage the coating...

My 1991 olds mobile cutlass calais wont start,after I added fuel injector cleaner because,the car was having hesistating problems below 25 miles an hour and it might of been a spark plug problem or fuel...

When you chaged the air filter & sprayed Gumout carb cleaner, you got rid of a little gunk in the
air intake, but when you added the fuel injector cleaner (its the same stuff as carburator cleaner) to the fuel tank, you "cleaned out" ALL the ****/gunk/buildup/dirt in the fuel system which has built up since 1991 and sent it straight to the fuel filter, which is now clogged. The reason that the car tries to start, but fails, is that it'll successfully burn up any fuel that gets past the clogged fuel filter, but the engine consumes that small amount of gasoline quickly, then dies.
Your solution: change the fuel filter.
The fuel filter is located:
Under vehicle, driver side, below seating area, near fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line

Starts ok but hesitates and dies when I step on the gas

When was last "healthy" tune up? Plugs, wires, all filters including FUEL filter. I'd do these and then run a good fuel system cleaner through it like STP or Gumout fuel system cleaner through it. It will give you a good "ground zero" starting point if probs continue.

'95 Buick Riviera, SuperCharger. Car won't Start up!

unplug the cam sensor behind the water pump pulley; see if it starts; if it does, shut off engine; replace both cam and crank sensors because crank sensors go out in these engines

I have a 1999 buick regal ls dying.

I have a 99 Buick Regal and it too dies out, but only when I use my turn signals. Sometimes, when trying to start the car...the dash lights would flicker and you can hear some sort of electrical ticking sound. As of today, my car will not start (5/24/09) it hadn't turned over since yesterday. After a process of elimination and searching the net, I think I need a new ignition switch. You may need one as well.

Truck starts, dies. truck runs good some days,bad the next

I had the same problem with My 1990 F150 300 6cylinder 4x4.....I cahnged all the same things you did, finally I sprayed a can of Gumout through the throttle body and it worked and ran great. Now I add fuel injector cleaner to the gas and a regular clean with the gumout and the problem has'nt come back. Good Luck to you and hope it works!
