92 Buick Skylark 3.3

Showing 2 out of 4 Posts | Show 2 Hidden Posts
Question From MjB985 on 92 Buick Skylark 3.3

Can anyone tell me where the oil pump is located on a 3.3 skylark? I just bought the car, it was in serious need of an oil change- changed the oil and it ran fine for a minute but the lifters started ticking, and no oil pressure.

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

The oil pump is built into the timing cover at the crankshaft. Make sure it's not just the pick up screen being all plugged up.

Response From MjB985

Thanks for the info. How big of a job is it to put a oil pump repair kit in? Is the pump part of the timing chain cover itself and slides onto the crank shaft or do I have to take off the timing chain to get to it?

Response From Hammer Time

Yes, it's part of the cover but I certainly wouldn't go that far without putting a chain in too.

1992 buick park avenue comp. code 41 camshaft sensor

Showing 2 out of 9 Posts | Show 7 Hidden Posts
Question From leonard on 1992 buick park avenue comp. code 41 camshaft sensor

Going crazy here..This 92 Buick has been a good one,,has 98,000 and no trouble until recently. It began running rough and set a code 41 in the computer. I checked it out and replaced the camshaft sensor (which it said to do). I then cleared the codes and started the engine..same problem, running rough and again set the code 41. I took it out and double checked no visible problem. This is a 3.8 v-6. I'm wondering if anyone has had this same problem and if so any help would be appreciated.
Thanks. leonard

Response From DanD Top Rated Answer

What I’ve seen happen with these is the trigger magnet for the sensor that is clipped into the cam gear falls out of its retainer and disappears somewhere never to be seen again; likely gets chewed up in the timing chain. If you were to remove the sensor and with the use of a mirror you should be able to look through the hole in the timing cover and see if the magnet is still there. What you might see is the metal retainer that should have the magnet held in its center is empty?
The crappy part about this is, if the magnet is gone; you’ll have to remover the timing cover to replace it. It’s installed through the back of the timing gear and the gear needs to be off the engine.
This isn’t a very good diagram of the cam gear but good enough to get an idea of where the magnet is.

Dan

Response From leonard

Dan : Thanks for the prompt replay, I've been out of the business for about 15 years now. I was a driveablity tech. for a number of years and also owned my own shop, sold that 1987 so I'm a little out of practice. However; I'm not ready to bend over that cross eyed engine just yet, I had open heart surgery april 15th so I'll wait a while. I'm wondering, could the crank sensor be the culprit? I know it's nearly as bad to change as the cam magnet but would like to save all work possible. Thanks again. Leonard

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Leonard: I would do the mirror trick if you want to go back there again. Obiously it would be a timing chain replacement to fix the cam gear magnet and if you aren't up to that right now at least you would know.

Hey! Is that another kitty that just showed up? We have strict limits here about posting with kitties your know.

Good luck with the fix,

T

Response From leonard

Hey, yeah! That's my little angel baby...Love my kitty. lol Thanks for the input, probably use the "mirror thing" right now, dang, dang, dang, also got a 90 merc. sable, drawing 3.0 amps with ign. off. 3.0 156,000 k. been really good, until it quit charging, changed alt. (twice) new reg. finally found a burned up fusable link, replaced that, now drawing amps, pulled all the fuses, cant find the dang thing yet, cooling fan quit toooooooooooooo. aaaaagggghhh !!!! both cars down for a week, and then the heart thing...lol what a summer!
Have a good day today and a better one tomorrow..

Leonard>.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

90 Sable: Check the way the ignition key feels?? Can you pull the key out when it's not supposed to? Had a couple of those that just didn't index OFF properly but they were a tad older,

T

Response From leonard

Key comes out while it's running, never gave that a thought. Perhaps it's suppsed to?? Don't know, but will check it tomorrow. It has always done that since I bought the car 3 for four years ago.
Thanks for the input..
Leonard

Response From Tom Greenleaf

It's not supposed to! That's probably the trouble as it was with some I knew. They were ok if you just made sure it was exactly OFF and for one I just put a stripe to index it and it never gave them trouble again but the right repair would have been to jump thru the hoops and fix the lock,

T

Response From leonard

Well hot diggity dog, I didn't know that! Well perhaps you have just solved my problem as I have noticed (from time to time) that was a problem, just never soaked into this fat head of mine..I have taken the key out several time's and had some trouble shutting the dang thing off. Can I blame it on the heart thing?? Hate to appear like an idiot as I used to be one the best around..(20 years ago that is). I was featured on the back page of the napa auto magazine as a mech. who could fix stuff others couldnt or didnt want to..Oh well, guess things change or as they say (stuff) happens..Luck and thanks again.

Tune Up Specs for 1967 Buick Electra V-8

Showing 2 out of 9 Posts | Show 7 Hidden Posts
Question From rhsaxt on Tune Up Specs for 1967 Buick Electra V-8

I am a new gearhead to your forum and looking forward to answers given and received. I worked 8 years in the 60's and 70's as a mechanic and body repair man in an Olds-Cadillac Dealership.....then I got my engineering degree and worked in the Chem Mfg for 34 years.....never drifting far from my gearhead roots(pretty much a GM guy). I am currently helping a man in my church "bring back to life" a 1967 Buick Electra. It appears to have the 350 motor from that year ( it's the original mill....the car is a one owner). The usual Haynes manuals available in the local parts stores do not include this car. I need info on spark plug gap, engine timing , points gap and points dwell. Anyone have this info and willing to share? In the future , I hope that can be on the giving end of the information.

Thanks,
Bob Saxton
Pace, Florida


Response From Loren Champlain Sr

Bob; The spark plug gap would be .035"; Dwell 30; Not sure about timing. Most were around 4-6 BTDC. Of course, we can't get the octane now, so you may have to retard the timing a degree or two at a time to get rid of the ping. You could start at 8-10 BTDC, then go from there. Once everything else is set, adjust the carb: You turn the air/fuel mix screws clockwise to lean, counter-clockwise to enrichen. What I'd do, was back off, then start leaning until the rpm just started to drop, then back off 'till it just 'recovered'. That would give you the best lean idle. Of course, do one screw at a time. Might not hurt to do it a couple of times allowing the engine to run a bit in between final adjustments. If you set the idle speed at 600-650 in drive, should be close.

Response From rhsaxt

Loren, thanks a bunch for your complete and quality reply. I alaso appreciate your advice on the octane rating issue. I will be working on this car Thurs or Friday of this week , so your input was very timely. I did not mention it in my original inquiry , but I have a 58 Corvette that I am going to do a body-off restoration ( 245 engine , BW 4 speed and Posi rear end)....and if my health holds , I have a 58 Belair that I am going to restore ( not an original restoration ) and power to be the unit that I will pull the 'Vette to shows. These projects have been a lifelong dream and current retirement will afford me the time. Just and interesting tidbit.

Take care, thanks, again for the specs and God's Peace and Blessings to you and yours.

Bob

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

Bob; Thankyou, so much, for the kind reply..Us ol' farts gotta stick together. Many of us 'cut our teeth' on just what you are working on. LOL. If you have any more questions, or just want to BS, feel free. Have a great week.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Loren's right on with the timing idea vs anything printed right now which I have EVERYTHING of on paper only and not looking at it. Set timing based on the best fuel you can buy octane wise and best to use only "premium" fuel even if it says "regular fuel" on the gas cap in red metal! J'me Souviens! Also remember that regular was 93 octane back then - premium went up to 105!

It's a very straight forward engine. "Uniset" points are handy.

One caution: Timing cover should be an alloy and some of the little bolts will be sticky on water pump to cover. Put some penetrating oil on them now for any day that they need to come out as if this is just what I'm thinking they were easy to snap off.

I have the "Pro Edition" Chiltons for that in old greasy well worn paper monster book now but could dig up details on most items in this car.

Time for some of us "old farts" to kick in

T

Response From rhsaxt

Mr. T , thanks for the "Amen" on Loren's answer....you guys are great ....and I really enjoy the "old fart" discussion; everytime I get in the shop and get down on the floor to do something, I have to go through a bunch of contorsions to get back up! I eventually get the job done , but it takes longer, good thing I no longer do this work for a living....I'D STARVE!

Take care, all....
Gearhead Bob
