FWIW I set my fuel in high gear at 75 mph [or whatever you cruise at] on cruise using the MAF. I feel that eliminates most of the variables. Tweak the fuel pressure so the MAF reads close to 128.
Just the way I do it.


I'v officially lost it, BL at 128 not the MAF, the block learn.
Senility is setting in.

That was the first thing I did...after the fuel filter...then I got the injectors cleaned and flowed...and then my timing chain went out. :D

If you guys do a search for the thread "Pending" you will find all of the meat and potatoes of what all the guys on this board helped me through. That was one of the most stressful, yet knowledge filled moments with my buick that I have had. Between Steve and others, that thread is filled with so much intricate detail and knowledge on things not usually discussed. It's a 19 page book ranging from no start diagnosis, to tuning and seeing differences in certain upgrades. I skim through it every now and then to keep track with what I've done to my own car.

Cool, tranny fluid it is!!


After you sent me your fp gauge, you directed me towards an expensive gauge that I ended up purchasing. We narrowed everything down to the fuel pump being bad. This stuff happened right before the timing chain problem. We've been through this car in and out Steve, and you've been there the entire way. Lol

yup....

they used to sell top engine cleaner at the parts store that was supposed to clean carbon off valves and such.  I don't know if they still do, or not.  that stuff made a ton of white smoke and that is what we used.  I don't know if that is still available these days, or not.  But tranny fluid will smoke so that is why I suggested it.

Seems to me like you used to have a fuel pressure gauge problem and we had to turn your fuel pressure up to about 50 psi to get it to run closer to right.  Did you ever get a better gauge?
