Engine dies Hi i have a 97 EL Fairmont with the tickford engine (214,000 kms), over the last couple of months it has taken to suddenly dieing both under power and a low revs, we have changed/replaced the following, Fuel Pump, fuel filter,leads and plugs, also cleaned the idle throttle body?. The car just looses power, it will then turn over but wont start for at least 5 mins then suddenly bursts into life. did notice today that the smart lock was flashing on the dash whilest i was trying to start it. any positive suggestions would be greatly appreciated. many thanx

97 Buick lesaber runs good all sudden dies wont run Windows won't go up or down?

When it suddenly dies an wont run , is this a permanent situation or will it start an run again at a later time ? Do the windows not working only happen when it dies or is this all the time regardless of vehicle suddenly dying ? When it dies you have to find out what is missing Fuel , spark etc.. Find this out an test the appropriate system ! Check all wiring harnesses underhood for proper routing an no bare wires touching ground ! An do a wiggle test on the wiring harness with it running or with someone cranking over the engine to see if it acts up or starts ! How long does it run before dying ?

I've suddenly lost oil pressure in my 01 fairmont ghia intech Tickford any ideas as why ? It's been sluggish for awhile spent $800at mechanics and now this happened. And it's still sluggish

-Check oil level. it's full or not. If not then top it to full line.
Most engine that lost oil pressure due to not oil or very low.

Good Luck
