My car is actually an 88, the fuel injector, and fuel pump are brand new. The fuel pump is giving it gas but it will not spray and therefor the engine dies on start up. You can spray starter fluid into the carburetor and it will continue to run but the problem is the injector not spraying fuel into it. We checked the wires leading into the injector and they are delivering a signal when we turned the key but still no spray. This problem started happening after my battery died and I removed it to have it recharged since no one would give me a jump.

I could drive my car for about 15 to 20 mins then go to park, so I reverse then put in drive but it won't go but car will still running,so I turn off 96 Buick Skylark waited like 45mins to an hour to start my car back up, put it in drive & it drove,this has happened a few other times, don't understand what could be the problem cause there isn't no check engine light or anything of that sort showed up in dashboard,have this happened to anyone else that drives a 96 Buick Skylark??? can anyone help,give me some advice or something???? please!!

Got this car from original owner in 2013. It had 50,000 original miles in the first 21 years. In last 2 years I put 24,000 on it. I noticed some coolant was coming out of overflow tube on expansion tank(and coolant was boiling/bubbling in expansion tank.) Car was also making a "marbles rolling around in coffee can" noise at this time and it hadn't been before. I took it to be a failing water pump. I replaced, water pump, thermostat, radiator cap, all coolant, flushed coolant system. Electric fan seems to work, at least when a/c is on. No issue for three weeks. Today car is expelling coolant again from expansion tank overflow hose. And "coffee can with marbles noise" is still there-leading me to think timing chain/guides are beginning to fail. So, Any guesses on coolant issue? How about coffee full of marbles noise issue? Thanks!

The fuel pump is brand new and the filter as well, but it still does the same thing, as if there is no gas getting to the injectors. I should mention after the initial replacement the car ran fine for a couple of weeks and then back to the same symptoms for witch i replaced the pump in the first place.

If not the relay switch what else can it be.


NO OBD2 codes

my 1996 buick skylark died going 55-60 on highway, wont start back up, codes read random misfire and bank 1 too lean. Would this cause the car not to start? what can I do to fix? would it be a timing issue?

I just had my transmission's fluid flushed and filter changed. Now it doesn't shift up to overdrive. The fluid level and color was fine before the fluid change, the pan gasket a small slow leak. Before the fluid change it would shift into overdrive but recently it would hesitate shifting from 2nd to 3rd. Shifted into overdrive normally. The car has 346K miles on it. I had the torque converter replaced (used) 200K miles ago.

Thanks in advance!

Fan noise increses with fan speed

I had a problem with my blinkers and brake lights. I fixed this problem and now my tail lights will not work. I changed the fuses and all the bulbs. Any suggestions

occasionally, it wants to stall unless more pressure is applied to the accelerator (sounds like the exhaust is getting louder as a result) The check engine light stays on and will begin to flash if going up hill. The vehicle is going through fuel at a very fast pace

I keep coming up with a egr value code where is it located at

the battery was dead, I hooked jumper cables up to it but yet it wont completely turn over

The right signal and brake light will work again if I pull the light assembly out of place, but they stop working once i move the car.

when I turn the key on and the dash light come on, oil pressure seat belt, air bag and etc the car will start if they do not light up the car will start and quit

Car was a gift. Neighbor says its probably the bulb. Autozone has teh bulb, but I don't know where on the vehicle to replace the old one.

you can hear the motor in the window but it wont go up or down.I have taken it apart and replaced the regulator(i think thats what it called) but it still wont go up or down

If you leave the key on for 20-30 seconds car will start and stay running. Tried replacing ignition switch and ignition cylinder to no avail. When car stalls theft light flashes and then is solid. Possible to bypass theft system and return car to normalcy? I was told there is a sequence of turning the key on and off in a patterned sequence to accomplish this? Or do I have to have the cassette removed, or another radio installed? Most grateful for a solution!

I have replaced the batteries, and I do not have the door key, only ignition key.

I love this car, it drives great and is decent at the pump, but there are some problems. When it rains water leaks in and pools on the driver side floor, none of the windows roll down, and now a mechanic says we need to replace the AC Compressor. I inherited this car from my father and he says that he's not willing to pay the $600 to fix the AC Compressor because of all the problems he fixed before I owned the car, plus the leak means that the problem could arise again. Does anyone know how to fix that leak, the windows and could I fix that compressor myself?

One of them told me that if I didn't my serpentine belt will come off and the vehicle wouldn't run at all. His price to replace it is $600. The other told me that I can still drive it & just replace it when the belt comes off? His price for labor is $50. I don't believe anything that either of them say. I have called various auto parts stores in my area and nearly all of them tell me that I must replace the compressor, accumulator, and orifice tube in order for the compressor to be warrantied. I've also called several salvage yards regarding these parts.

I have several questions:
Is it necessary to replace all three parts?
Is it ok to buy the parts used or will this eventually lead me to replacing them again?
Can this car be driven to the shop or should it be towed?
Roughly how long does it take to make this type of repair?
Roughly how much should I expect to pay for labor for this type of job?
