1996 Buick Riviera won't start

Asked by Jun 21, 2017 at 09:24 PM about the 1996 Buick Riviera Coupe FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Buick riviera died while I was driving down the
highway. Replaced the crank sensor and it started but
sounded like there was an airflow issue. Removed the
filter box and found a lot of leaves, etc. in there cleaned it
out, put it back together and now it won't start at all! Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings.. Remove the air filter component /cover and spray some Mass Air Flow Sensor fluid into the air flow (screen) and try starting after replacing all components. Good Luck!!!
