Question about 1990 Buick Regal

I have a 1990 Buick Regal that stalls while accelerating. And then wouldn't start at all. After letting it cool for a few minutes it started but continued stalling. Before this started happening it was hard starting. Please help!!!

Most likley a fuel pump issue. The only way to know for sure is hook up a pressure gauge and when you have symptoms check the pressure. If you spray some brake cleaner or quick start when it doesnt start and it does start then this is an indication of a failed fuel pump or fuel pump relay. If it still does not start when you spray then you have an ignition issue like a crank sensor or ignition module.

    unless the car is broken when it is diagnosed all we can do is guess. Like i said. When it doesnt start spray some brake cleaner or quick start to see if it will start. If it still does not start then you have an ignition issue like a failing crank sensor or ignition module. If it does start when it usually wont then you still have fuel issue like maybe a fuel pump relay issue.

Sounds like a relay or coil failing.
To proceed you would need to find out if you are loosing spark to the plugs or fuel pressure to the injectors when it won't start.

You could always try to find a used one at a salvage yard that's in good shape. You may find its cheaper than cleaning yours altogether and if the place is cool, they MIGHT even let you return it if it isn't the issue. Even if they only credit it, at 190K, there's gotta be a few things you need for it! Just a thought! Good luck!

I have an 1990 buick regal custom and stalls when im griving it then dies can anyone help me on how to fix it.


Sounds to me like a fuel filter.When was the last time it was changed?Because if a car starts and runs till you give it gas under load then dies it is a fuel problem.Start by chaging fuel filter and if problem still persists then next thing to check is fuel pump.

You might try a crank sensor, most of the time if you pull it out you may see a crack in it. It's between the top of the oil pan an the transmission, good luck.
