Do I have a bad fuel pump

Not symptoms of a pump. Sounds more like a bad idle air control valve. run some fuel system cleaned in it and run a full tank of gas to see if it changes.

Leak in the fire wall of a 1996 buick skylark

Ive used marine sealant before (metal tube) to stop a leak after installing a stereo cable through a firewall, but i hear regular old silicone from home depot will get the job done. These sealant will last about 5 years or so.

Dead battery.
If the lights came on while driving,
Alternator needs to be replaced.
If the car wouldnt start after being off, battery is suspect.

Buick Skylark won't start. intermittant problem

Had similar problem Does the 'theft system' light come on or blink? If so, get it checked out by a good electronic troubleshooter. If it doesn't start, try locking and unlocking driver door twice, and it should reset and start.
