Can you hear the fuel pump in the gas tank running for a few seconds when you turn your key to the on position without starting the engine? If you do not hear it something is wrong! If that's not the issue this could take a little while to pin down so feel free to contact me: over4dy@yahoo.com

How to fix a1998 buick century to start fuel filter new and airfilter turning over but not starting gets gas


Did you check for spark? It sounds like you're not getting spark. Check for spark. If you are not getting spark then it sounds like you might have to replace the coil packs. Is it running a L4 engine? If its running a standard chevy L4 its probably the coil packs. Try to replace them check again for spark.

I have a 1991 Plymouth Acclaim - 4 cylinder. It will start and run for a while but if I make about 2 runs and come back out to start it, it just turns but will not catch. If I let it sit for about 4-5...


It sounds like your ignition coil is over heating. Was the coil replaced? Your mechanic should have checked voltage/resistance and replaced if needed since it is not too expensive and is a major part of tune-up and ignition system. You can change yourself in a few minutes and save some cash. I had the same problem and had to wait for coil to cool before it would start again. Hope this helps.

installed.( It may be cloged)
If that does not fix the problem chances
are the trans is Done.

Car wont start it sounds out of gas but its not


Try changing your fuel filter. After setting for over a year your filter may of have picked up some trash that settled in your tank. Also check your fuses you may of have blown your fuel pump fuse. Also you may try putting some new fuel.
