Having problems with your 1993 Buick LeSabre ?

My 94 buick lasabre has been running very smoothly until I went in it to start it and it eont turnover. It sounds almost like the fuel is not getting into the engine. I checked the battery cables and that was not the problem. IT wasnt the starter or alternator either. Can you give me any answers that I can check into?

Answers :

If you dont have test equipment then you can determine what is likely wrong by the followint:
spray a little starting fluid or gas in the air intake (without the air filter) ... if it starts and runs for a few seconds then the ignition system and timing belt are likely ok .. you should then check the fuel pump and fuel filter ( a mechanic would test for fuel flow and pressure) .. you could have a blown fuel pump fuse ..if your car starts after spraying the starting fluid and continues to run but very rough .. then you might have water in the gas (more common as weather changes cause condensation). ... if the car doesnt start even with the starting fluid then you likely have an ignition problem .. you can remove an ignitiion wire and test for spark as the engine turns over ... if there is no spark then you could have a bad ignition module, coil or other ignition component.. if your lasabre has lots of miles on it you might check to see if it has a timing belt vs a timig chain .. the bels have a limited life time and can break or skip a tooth ... if it startted and ran a few seconds with the starting fluid then the belt is not the cause.. .
