This sounds like a computer problem or bad connection, check all your battery connections and grounds. can you have it scanned for codes at an auto parts store, and see if there are any codes stored in the computer.

SOURCE: location of turn signal flasher for 1997 Buick skylark

the flasher is behind the dash where the steering column goes. It's hard to get at and harder to remove. They just can't make these things easy, can they?

Does it crank and not start or not even crank. You could have a bad starter. I would test the battery first. When it won't start try to jump start it. If it jump starts it's probably the battery. If it won't jump start it's probably the starter.

SOURCE: 97 buick skylark 4 cyl misfires--changeed

If you have a 1997 Skylark w/ a four cylinder engine, then you have the same one I do, a 2.4L dual overhead cam. It is not a quad 4, different beast altogether. I believe your problem might be the plug boots, did you replace them? It's a relatively cheap solution, about $17 at AutoZone if I remember right.

check oil and coolant levels . Check if overheating. Check transmission oil level. If there is nothing obvious. Run the fault codes to check that it is the canister vent problem ( from the incorrectly fitted filler cap). Reset the light with a scanner

Perhaps the computer is going bad, or the connections to it are bad.

Many lights on the dash are controlled by the computer, including the Service Engine Soon light which should go on when the ignition is turned on as a bulb check feature.

When the car starts and runs under its own power this light should go off and stay off if the emission control systems are in working order.

Running rough or fast


If both the MAF and 02 have been replaced, try the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) also check for vacuum leaks. the hoses that come out of the throttle body are very vulnerable to melt from heat.
