Question about 1990 Buick Century
Just recently put a rebuilt engine in (engine is a 1989) car runs fine but today when driving it shuttered a bit but not bad, (thought it might be the road i was on). stopped and the car dies. will start right up and run just fine but when put in gear it dies. i "popped" the clutch so to speak and go it to go into gear for a little bit and then it done it again. (car in an automatic) any thoughts on what it may be.
Ive seen a bad alternator do the same thing

Sounds like the lock up torque convertor in the transmission is stuck in the engaged position.There is a sensor switch under the hood that can be temporarily unpluged but leaving it unplugged can ruin the transmission. Take it to a tranny shop.
