This video was made after I got the new engine in, I just never got around to uploading it. A little drive in the car over to my friends house to have a look at another 97 Riviera I bought before I got my green one. That one does not run and still needs work. I intend to sell that one, I don't need 2 of these, and I definitely don't have the space.
Buick - 1995 Riviera Service Features (1994)
This video, taken from Buick's Know-how Series (KH-172), discusses Service
Features for the "newly-designed" 1995 Riviera. Topics covered include:
structural body design features, door/window design, suspension, Series II
Engine, noise isolation, magnetic variable-effort steering, supplemental
restraint system, automatic dual-climate control system, and battery
Removing the engine on my 97 Riviera
Pulling the knocking 3800 supercharged out of my Riviera to make way for
the replacement engine. Came out relatively easy thanks to the engine
wiring for the most part is one harness that unplugs at the firewall.
Everything is in that harness except the starter, alternator and speed
sensor wiring. The AC compressor and power steering pump unbolt and can be
left in the car so you don't have to drain the fluid/refrigerant. The
biggest pain was getting the axis motor mount off, the bolts were pretty
rusty. The ironic part is those bolts have to be removed to change the
belts, which are so cracked and chipped I wouldn't doubt they are original.
The old engine will either be used for parts, or I may rebuild it at some
New project: 1997 Buick Riviera Supercharged
PIcked this one up off Craigslist for $400 plus $50 to deliver it. Car
runs and drives but has what sounds like rod knock. I still need to to
some diagnostic work, but that's what it sounds like to me, and the guy I
bought it from was a mechanic and thinks the same. The car is fully loaded
with what looks to be every option offered right down the traction control
and engine block heater. The car has just under 100k on it and it in
excellent shape in and out. The car has been sitting for a year or so and
looks it, but it will get washed when it gets warmer.
JOHNS RESTORATION BUICK RIVIERA "AIRBRUSHED"
CAME IN DARK RED !!! WE WET SANDED IT & AIRBRUSHED "IRON MAN" ON THE HOOD
.... GOLD ACCENTS WITH GOLD PEARL & GOLD ICE !!!!!!! LET US KNOW WHAT
YOUR BUDGET IS & I WILL WORK WITH U !!!!!
EDIT: whoops, forgot the starting part! The moment of truth! After
countless hours of cleaning, replacing parts, etc I finally start the
replacement engine. She ran a bit rough at first and threw a code (cyl 6
misfire) but smoothed out a few seconds later. I think that was just air
in the injector rail causing that cylinder not to fire. The smoke
eventually stopped and the new engine is quiet and responsive. No leaks
either as a bonus! Now on to replacing the rear brakes and a much needed
i did find the part i was looking for after i shot the video the car was
hideing behind a big o van

1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been
abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel
& Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in
conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead
with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1,
with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two,
loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011
issue of HOT ROD Magazine.
The 87 Riviera part 2
We replaced the cam sensor on it and it seemed to do nothing. I found out
during the week that the coil we were testing for spark on was actually
bad. I replaced it with one I had laying around from the repair of my 87
lesabre and it has spark on all 6 cylinders, but now it look like the fuel
pump is shot.
