95 Buick Roadmaster Limited

Asked by May 13, 2014 at 02:48 PM about the 1995 Buick Roadmaster Limited Sedan RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Here's the problem there was a squeaking
noise under the hood, I was told it was the
belt to put degreaser on it then go to the car
wash & spray the belt with water. After that
the car was running out of gas. So the gas
station was close went & got gas then
driving off the car started like it didn't want
to go. Got home the engine shaking, rough
start & jerking. Please tell me this can be
fixed by draining something or replacing
something small spark plugs or Please help
this is a great running car.

First of all never put anything on your belts, if it is making a noise then something is wrong, ie. bad belt, tensioner, out of line pulleys, etc. It sounds like you got something wet that should not have got wet ie ignition module, coils, plug wires, sensors. But you also said it ran out of gas, so it could also have a plugged fuel filter, plugged fuel strainer or a failing fuel pump due to lack of fuel. I know that seems like a lot of stuff to check, but I'm just going on what you have said happened.

I have been told to never wet the opti spark because it can get moisture or water itself inside the opti spark and cause it to miss or jus completely stop running. Sounds like when u were spraying the belt u got water into the opti spark causing it to stall. My car did the same replaced fuel pump, plugs, wires, fuel filter, coil pack, and still wouldnt start till I finally changed the optispark. My advice if u do change opti spark go with a good quality one not the cheapest u can find.
