Question about 1992 Buick Riviera

2 Answers

Starts fine, after a few minutes the idle drops and it stalls

Starts fine, after a few minutes tries to stall, sometimes it does sometimes it doesn't. If you shut if off, then try to start it back up it wont start. I took it to get a diagnostic and he said the fuel pump if only putting out 18 pounds of pressure, and said my intake manifold might be warped. But im thinking it might just be the fuel filter. From what i've heard fuel pumps dont slow down, they just go out.

Install a new crank shaft sensor. I had the same problem with my wife's Jeep. It would run fine fore days at a time then quit. When the crank sensor goes out their is no spark or injection of fuel into the engine. This is a Hall Sensor. They can be intermittent, and affected bu heat. If your Jeep will not start, try freeing the sensor and see if it starts. Cold Freeze is used in electronics to test

Omni stall

I wouldn't think sensor problem. Need to monitor data to see what is not showing up. Some input to the PCM is not being seen. You need to monitor sensor data to see what disappears, it will lead you to the problem.
