95 Lesabre starts,dies-starts,dies
Hello everyone. I just finished rebuilding the engine in my grandpa'* 95 Buick Lesabre and am having some starting issues. He'* been having intermittent problems with it for a while now. He had the fuel pump and the alternator replaced at the beginning of this year. Then he replaced the cam sensor a few months ago, but he was still having a problem with the car dying immediately after startup, up to seven times before it would run all right. When I tore the engine down I found that the cam sensor wasn't installed properly, it wasn't pushed into the hole in the block.
The engine went back together just fine, and it started right up. It had run for about 10 minutes when I noticed that it would stumble at higher rpms, and if you blipped the throttle, it would almost die out before the rpms picked up. A few minutes later it stalled and now it won't run. The oil pressure and temp were fine before it died, and it was showing 15.8 volts. However, the alternator light was on (he says it is always on), and the temp light stays on now too. When you turn the key on you can hear the pump prime. The car will start, run for about two seconds and shut back off. If you turn the key off, then on again it will start and die. If you don't turn the key off before you try to restart it, it just cranks and doesn't fire.
I haven't tested the fuel pressure yet, but it won't even hit the firewall when you press the schreader valve with the key on, which doesn't seem right to me.
