1985 Buick Somerset Regal Limited 4Cyl2.5L - Engine
After pouring gas into TBI throat will engine start and run normally for about 30 sec to 1 min engine dies Why?
The car has 94,000 mi and I just changed the fuel filter. I disconnected the fuel line to the TBI and no gas flows while cranking. Car has been garaged 3 years and ran fine before that.
