i had a simaler problem(still having problems but not this one anymore) i had a local mech. look at it and he said it must be a vacume leak,but it stumped him as it would shut down then u pull over and wait a min. and it would start and run fine for a few miles or days...i followed the "air/vacume" line off the pcv vale i think to the back of my engine near firewall and on the intake right below the coilpack was a hose loose that came out of a rubber t shaped connection,i put it back in and have never had this problem again...im on a new problem now..lol...hope this helps you out...good luck to all buick owners..:)

You will need to have a reputable mechanic do a diagnostic check on the car to determine the problem. This should pull up a code number in your car's computer and help point the mechanic and you in the direction of the malfunctioning part/s.
Just today, I had a diagnostic check done on mine for nearly $45.00. The mechanic was able to figure out the reason why my service engine light was staying on. I knew my car's radiator fans failed to run when car's engine was hot except when the A/C was running. I had changed out the sensors and was never able to get the light to go out or get the fans working. They were able to determine that the 25 amp fuse for the fans located under the hood was blown. After replacing it, the fans worked as they should, my car runs cooler and the engine service engine light is now out. Of course there are many possible reasons why the service engine light may come on including problems with the car's emissions. A reputable mechanic can solve your problem.
