1991 Buick Riviera 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 155000 miles
I ran my 91 Riviera out of gas but only because the dash was reading 00 error again. So I cranked it over and restarted it twice just enough to pull it out of traffic. (I really hated having to do that) I called for assistance got 2 gallons of gas and headed for the nearest gas station.
The car started initially but died 4 or 5 times on the freeway. I restarted from rolling neutral but did not make it to the gas station and had to pull off. I tried to start it after I came to a stop and although the dash and everything else came on when I turned the key there was nothing. Not even a click.
Two hours later I went back to get it and it started right up. I did notice the idle was a bit rough but I drove it to the gas station left it running while I put in 10 gallons of gas and drove it the 5 miles home without any problem.
It started fine the next morning but with an odd rough idle and I drove it the 8 miles to work. It died just as I was pulling in the drive. After work I drove it home and it died 3 or 4 times and I finally had it towed to the house.
I changed the fuel filter and I can hear the fuel pump engage and I switched the relays around.
It starts but wont run for any length of time and it will back fire if I try revving it up tho smooth idle. It smells like the fuel is running very rich.
have the same problem?
