  1. 2000 Buick Regal starts for 3 seconds then stalls

    I am having a similar issue with my 98 GS w/supercharger. It will run fine...even great, but every once in a while I will start it cold, run an errand where I drive for a ways [10 or 15 miles] and if I shut the car off, it will do the same thing. Start, chug like it is gas starved, and then...
  2. Intermittent 3800 engine trouble

    Sounds like the same issue my supercharged 98 Regal GS has been having. I did an ODB on mine, and got back P0 codes 102, 112, 440, and a P1133 code. I discovered that the vacuum line where it connects to the fuel pressure regulator valve had a crack in the rubber connection, very probably due to...
  3. 2003 Regal LS Windshield Washer Fuse Location

    Hey. your video helped with locating and replacing the pump in my 98 Regal, but the new pump isn't working either. Is there a fuse or relay for the pump itself? my wipers work fine. just no washer.
  4. 1973 Buick Regal

    Had a Century. liked it a lot.
  5. 1998 Regal Supercharger lubricant

    It's not just the cost. With recommended change intervals on some of the sites I have looked at being between 20K and 80K miles, it is unlikely to be much of an ongoing expense, but my other issue with what to use has to do with availability. If I am traveling in the car and happen to lose the...
  6. 1998 Regal Supercharger lubricant

    Is there any particular reason why? I've seen the AC Delco brand, as well as a few other supercharger specific oils offered on various sites, all very expensive compared to the amount you get. Are they something other than a petroleum based oil or some synthetic mix? I am not a racer, and so far...
  7. 1998 Regal Supercharger lubricant

    I tried a search of this forum for this subject and nothing came up, so I am going to just ask. I just bought a 1998 Regal GS with the supercharged 3800. The gentleman I bought it from had a list of recent repairs and improvements he had made to the car, but some things had apparently been...
  8. 93 century MAF interchange

    just for "chits and giggles", i was wondering if anyone has tried using something other than the manufacturer-suggested intake port and attached MAF sensor? i see the unit for the 3.1 V6 all over for fairly cheap, but the unit for the 3.3 [in my car] runs pretty spendy for a new part. i wonder...
  9. I DO not recommend Dealing with Eric Ragis!

    i run into this a lot with regards to older car parts. there are people who scour the forums looking for "parts wanted", and when they see something they know they can get, they call out to the wrecking yard and pay them like $50 for a part they turn around and resell for much more....like $160...
  10. my '93 Century

    i know, i know, its a [YAWN]:dry: Buick Century.... gotta post a few pictures of the new car. not a bad little car once you get past the maintenance issues the PO didn't take care of. i notice there are too few Century pictures on this site. well, i am going to add some.:eek:
  11. why did buick have to stop making cars like this?

    there was a little thing called the Arab Oil Embargo, then automotive safety standards, then the DISCO ERA[:eek:], then the recession of the early 70s, then emissions standards, then.........:damnit: i just sold off my 69 Skylark last year, and as cool a car as it was, it was definitely a...
  12. Is this a Buick Grille?

    well, you have it upside down, but it is a '67 Ford Galaxie grille
  13. dual exhaust

    kinda depends on your local emissions laws. most states don't allow anything but what came "factory" on your car, so most shops will only do replacement systems according to that. if you want to build your own system, you can do a basic set relatively easily. the cost of pipe [depending on the...
  14. new Montana member

    hey. just bought this '93 Century for $500 and have a few questions about it related to how it runs, which right now is not that great. stats are a 3.3 V6, 3 speed auto, AC. not much else. nice enough car, had to replace the front marker lights and the grille, and do a bit of touch up. added...
