What might cause a supercharged 1995 Buick Riviera to die while you are driving down the road or sometimes to just not start?
Same problem, feel the pain. So far we replaced the easy thing like the fuel sensors under the back seat. Made no difference, it would do the same thing. We are replacing the fuel pump, will keep you posted to let you know if that worked.
That was the only thing we could come up with when all sensors are working right, and the darn thing (pump) isn't working at all times. Usually if you are trying to start the car and it doesn't start you can open up the fuel tank lid and listen for the fuel pump running, if it isn't you can bet it is done for even if it starts going again after it decides to work again.
Truly frustrated with you, wait until you have to buy won,$$$.
had same problem .turned out to be my icm ,ignition control module
try this when your car dies ,pure a bottle of cold water on the coil pack .if it starts rite back up then your icm is overheating and is now heat sensitive ,so you have to replace it .
i had the same problem recently and well i replaced the fuel pump found it o e bay really cheap regular part shops have it for almost $300 but it was under $150 and then replaced my air boot the big hose that is connected to the engine and the air filter due to the fact that it had a little gap and a little too much air was getting into the engine.
It could also be water in the gas tank.
Is there a fuel injector pump on the supercharged 1997 Buick Riviera If there is where on the car is it located?
The 1995 Buick Riviera SC 3.8 uses a 4T60E transmission very similar to the other 3.8's of the era and will physically bolt up to other cars, though the gearing of the final drive in the supercharged Riviera is 3.29 fine pitch, where the others are most often a 3.06, 2.83 or 3.33 none of which are fine pitch ratios. This will cause problems with trans control modules. Hollander interchange lists the 1995 Riviera SC…
The 1993 Riviera has a olds 3.8L in it, you would be able to swap the supercharger and related components from a Park Ave Ultra, or Pontiac Bonneville for example. The engine computers are the same part across those vehicles, wiring harness may be challenging; but whereas this vehicle was not offered w/ supercharger from factory, a challenge could be expected.
My 1995 buick riviera shuts off when driving or when stopped at traffic light what could be the problem?
A non running supercharged Buick 3800 is hard to estimate without further information. If the s/c is good,but the rest of the car is bad (thrown bearing) and drivetrain is in good shape, $300 maybe. If the valvetrain is busted up (valve bent or otherwise) then $150 - 200. If over 100k miles, drop $100 off the prices. They are very common engines still, and the superchargers are only wanted if the needle bearings are…
Lots of luck trying to find one - they made 2 types - XAB and XBB There will be a tag, under the engine(trans) in about the center of the car to tell you which one you have. The dealer told us they are NOT interchangeable! However, they ARE interchangeable. The only issue would be that the XAB trans is not as stong as the XBB, specifically the sprag clutch. So while The only other…
