Ok, so the car was at the body shop for quite a while and were finishing putting it together. The car will not start on its own, I need to shoot some gasoline down the throttle and it will start right up and run with almost no issues. If I shut it down, need to do the gas thing again and will run. Any thoughts?:confused:

Fuel pump relay?

Once the engine is running the oil pressure switch will keep the fuel pump on, it's a fail safe so in the event of an accident the fuel pump will shut off if the engine stalls to prevent pumping gas all over the place.

If you crank the engine until the oil pressure builds up does it start? You can crank continuously for 30 seconds without hurting the starter, for some reason turbo Buick's have a high torque starter in them.
