Engine Performance problem
1995 Buick Regal 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 142000 miles
I live in Vegas. Right now it's 110 degrees.
Recently during stop and go driving for about a half hour, I stopped and got gas. A HUGE whoosh of gas pressure was released when I took off the cap.
When I tried to start my car it turned over but began to sputter than die. Each time I tried to start it, it would also make a loud humming/whistling noise that seemed to be coming from under the rear of the car.
I let the car sit for a while, (temp was about halfway)
It wasn't overheating coolant wise.
After about ten minutes re-started absolutely perfect.
I had recently installed a new fuel filter.
But it was doing this BEFORE the new filter
Do you think I have a bad gas cap?
It wasn't doing this during the winter/spring months.
Started and ran fine then.
Problem is Vegas will STAY at 100 plus degrees all the way everyday till. October.
Please advise, appreciate it greatly.
Sweating profusely, Danny Lee Bugarin
have the same problem?
