Question about 1988 Buick Skyhawk
My 1988 Buick Skyhawk runs pretty good. We can drive it for about 20 minutes straight and it will die. When I try to restart it, it is fine until I put it into gear then it dies again. Let it sit for 2 to 5 minutes and it starts and put it in gear and it is fine for a while longer. I can drive it all I want in short 5 to 6 miles burst and it's fine.
What can make this happen, please help??

SOURCE: 1992 buick lesabre starts fine.
You check the coils with a ohm meter. They should 6-8 thousand ohms at the spark plug connections. One lead to one spark plug connection and the other lead to the other . It's not likely a coil for stalling. If coil , Your car can still run on four cylinders. It can be a ignition module. It fails when it gets extremely hot. The module is located under the coils.

The TCC solonoid is bad I have changed hundred of these there is a square coector of the front side of the transmission, this is the connector for the TCC ( torque converter Clutch) it has a tab lock put your finger nale under the tab or a smal screwdriver and lift gently and pull the connector off the car will now drive when you put it in gear but NOT have 4th gear and theck engine light may come on you should get this fixed as soon as possible you have to take off the side transmission cover the TCC is in there only buy one directly from the GM dealer no one else trust me on this, and also change te transmissin filter and gasket while your there.

you might want to chk. the crank sensor and or cam sensor. sounds more to me that it could be fuel problem. chk. fuel pressure. pump could be on its way out. don't be fooled by hearing the pump running as they sound like they are pumping but there not, at least not enought pressure to keep it running. pressure should be around 50 p.s.i.

get a tune up ie...change plugs and wires...fuel filter, air filter, and check to see if you have a VATS system in your car
