Asked by Jun 26, 2011 at 10:15 AM about the 1999 Buick Regal LS Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

ok, woke up one morning, nothing, wouldn't even attempt to start.  replaced starter, plugs, battery.  will now try to start, but plugs continually so fouled that it just won't spark.  AND coolant is disappearing, not into oil, no milkshake effect, seems to be blowing out the exhaust. got car to start, 10 miles later, no coolant.  never had any headaches with this car before and this is driving me nuts./

srry to say your problem is probably intake gasket,you most likey have no compression.look at the old plugs to see if there any rust and check to see if any water coming out the back exhaust.if there is blowing motor. not all car show in the oil

one more thing look in the water,smell it to see if you smell oil or change of color
