    Knock sensor location

    What’s that sensor above it? That’s what I touch when I put my hand back there.

    Knock sensor location

    Holy shit no way I am going to be able to reach that without a lift. Don’t have one of my own. I guess I’ll have to take it somewhere. And I thought these engines were easy to work on. Smh fucking GM.

    Knock sensor location

    Can someone help me find the knock sensor location? I need a photo of where it’s at. From this photo I don’t know if it’s on the passenger side or drivers side. Everyone told me it’s in the back of the engine near the exhaust manifold in the engine and it’s an 89 Buick Regal
  4. Somebody please reach out to me. I need a fuel rail for my Buick Regal 2.8 V6. They will fit 3.1 V6 as well. I don’t need any injectors or presssure regulator. I only need a good used rail. If anyone has one please message me and I will show you the photo of the one I am looking for to match part. I need this part ASAP and it’s becoming inconvenient for me I want to drive the car again.

    Set of tires on promo model

    Does anyone have a set of tires that came off of an Buick regal promo? I need a tire, bought one new and when I opened the box... guess what? Only 3 fucking tires. I was so disappointed... anyone know of anyone who has parts for the promo? I would appreciate it so much. I never would have thinked the factory would ever make a mistake so stupid as this one.
  6. Could be the cooling fan motor? We had that issue when the shop thought it was the coolant temp sensor. Chances are it was the fan motor itself not getting any power.

    Gas Gauge on Insturment cluster doesn’t move

    Remember when the insturment clusters went digital in the first gen W-Body? They all had issues with the entire insturment cluster and the unit always needed to be replaced or rebuilt. We had the insturment cluster replaced twice because the gas gauge wouldn’t move and was staying at empty or would be moving slower than normal every time you get gas. What I want to know is does the gas gauge on the insturment cluster on my regal have resistor that’s connected on the back of the cluster, kinda like the photo? I just replaced the sending unit and gas gauge needle moved 1/4 from empty, but should be moving fast towards full. Didn’t do that. Plus somehow my tank didn’t have any gas in it after I filled it. So drove two weeks and I guess it must have got empty and I didn’t know about it because gas gauge would just stay at the same place. Would the insturment cluster need to be rebuilt? We always had that issue with the car ever since it rolled of the showroom because the insturment cluster was the first thing we ever replaced because ithe gas gauge would always stay at empty rather than full.

    Fuel Pump Replacement, what is the best brand that will last longer?

    How long did your pump last? Is it still working good? I know ACDelco works best for our cars, but since they don’t make parts good anymore I need to get the best pump so it can last longer

    Fuel Pump Replacement, what is the best brand that will last longer?

    I was also looking at GM pumps and the good pump that was from the factory is discontinued, but... that same part number is still being used as BOSCH now, it’s made in the usa. Deplphi is not and is made for GM cars. What’s the difference of both brands? Delphi is made in China and BOSCH is made in America. Wouldn’t the one made in America be the best bet?

    Fuel Pump Replacement, what is the best brand that will last longer?

    Would you say it’s better than BOSCH? I am debating on BOSCH and Delphi.

    Fuel Pump Replacement, what is the best brand that will last longer?

    What about Delphi? Someone says that had 100% free issues with them
  12. Ok well it comes down to this, the regal needs another fuel pump. The original pump lasted 27 years that was produced by GM. That pump was replaced 3 years ago with a Carter Pump. Since the pump didn’t last like I thought it would, what brand pump would you buy? What pump can last 10 years? Is it such a thing anymore for buying a good part? Shops like to charge so much for crap parts and they don’t last long like you expected they would. I am debating on which pump should I buy. Lots of W-Body guys say go with stock and buy ACDelco, but one other guy said buy Bosch because it’s made in the USA with good pressure and not China. I have a potential lead with a good sending unit, it’s an original NOS GM part like the one that lasted 27 years. Just debating on good pumps now that last long.

    Map sensor breather clip

    Yes, the clip that connects onto the map sensor to seat it in place from moving. It’s near of the fuel vapor canister solenoid on top of the valve cover near the fire wall.

    What is this part?

    Really good eye, I would never have guessed that. Guess it comes with the experience of working on them along time.

    Never had any problems with them because I install the parts myself and they are the correct parts because I always search the part numbers before buying them.
