The 1990 Buick 3800 was a car my father purchased 10 years before his death and I have repainted and restored it to like new and drive it daily. Problem is the cam sensor I have replaced 3 times. Have check the magnet on and it is in place. After first replacement it worked for a week before failing. Do you have an engine light and code? Yes but I do not remember the code number.
Been having a problem with my 2000 Buick regal supercahrged. It has been dying while i am driving and when it happens it usually starts right back up. When it dies, no lights are effected and the radio dose not cut out at all, only the accelerator and power steering is effected. It sounds normal when i am trying to turn it over does not bog down at all. And it also idles high.
It stalls on very low speed deceleration and restarts immediately..Spark test done and diagnostic scan with no codes expressed. Can the MAF, Crankshaft Positioning, Throttle Positioning sensors and or the ICM give false negatives when scanned?.
no power to ac compressor. I put a paper clip in wire for low pressure and it has power. Got climate control on auto 60 but there is no power to compressor the auto light is on. I checked the fuses and relay all good.
What are some common causes for the EVAP emissions codes that turned on the check engine light.
Could you please look at the pressure test results i got after testing the transmission with my Tech II? I am not sure if they are correct or what the problem is.
My car has a multi link independent rear suspension, and when ever i take a corner and hit a small bump at the same time the car moves or sways over the rear wheels, not up and down but side to side like something is loose. Do u have any ideas what could be causing this.
My dash display goes dim or completely dark at times. How can i fix this problem on my Buick?
A/C compressor, orifice tube and drier replaced about 1 year ago. The problem I have is that when you turn the ac on the cool air only comes out the 2 vents on the passenger side. The 2 vents on the drivers side have warm air blowing out. A/C is controls are set to max air and max cold on the temp control.
what should be checked first service engine light cam sensor was bad replaced with ac Delco light came back on with in 10 miles took it back was told crank sensor may be bad or may have a bad pcm. He wasn't sure and didn't want to spend my money. The car is harder to start at times. It was dead once on third attempt to start it started right up rough idle. Not as much pep. Also the door locks will lock and unlock at times for no reason while in park idling. Where would be a good place to start?
I have a 1991 park ave. I only paid $800 for it and put a ton into it; brakes and lines, power steering pump, alternator, coil pack, ignition module, tires. Then my water pump went out. My boyfriend and I took the old one off which looked original to the car, scraped off the old gasket and cleaned it really well. We put on the new pump by following the directions that came with it. We put the belt and motor mounts back and put it all back together. But its still dripping antifreeze. Then someone told me we were supposed to use a gasket sealer around the new gasket. I really dont want to have to take it all back apart because I'm getting a new car in a few weeks. Is there anything i can seal it with from the outside?.
my car never ran hot or gave me any problems one day it started riding funny so i pulled over and turned the car off when i lifted up the hood it was no water in it and there was no sign of leakage(water was in it a couple days prior).I put water in it, but then it wouldn't crank. Please tell me what could this possibly be??.
The dash panel lights are all out, except when I first start my car. Then all the warning lights will flash just for a second. Afterwards, everything goes dark. Subsequently, my tail lights don't work whenever the panel lights are out. I would be extremely grateful if you can answer this, because everyone keeps giving me the run around. I've already gotten a ticket for this, and I am a struggling mommy. I honestly would donate.
04 Buick Lesabre shifts rough sometimes from 1st to 2nd feels like a slight shudder, been told need another transmission. Had it flushed, has helped some. Has 225 60r16 tires when door panel says 215 70r 15 tires. Some models came with the 225 option. I was wondering does or can computer shift points need to be changed, I've heard with different tires computer needs to be reset or it throws shifts, speedometer and odometer off. The flushing showed no signs of debris in the pan. Was wondering does it need an additive or do some Buick just tend to have that noticeable shift, tends to do more if I push the gas harder than normal.

The transmission is slipping on my car. The engine revs up between gears. Does this mean i need a new one or can it be repaired?
Doesn't matter what gear its in or anything. Have to disconnect the battery to shut off the lights. I know its a short somewhere, but is it possible that the steering is jacked up or is there a switch?
How can i determine which wheel bearing hub is bad and making the noise. Also can I replace myself.

My car wont start. I did a computer scan but there are no codes. Would a bad ignition coil cause this problem?
