Question about 1992 Buick Park Avenue

2 Answers

Car starts but turns off after a 10 min or so.

I was driving the car for about 12 min with low gas. when i got to the gasoline station my car shut off because of low gas. i put 20 dollars of gas and tryed to start the car but the car would start but would not idle correctly. After i let the car sit for 3 or 4 hours when i put the keys int the ignition the car started with no problems. After ten min or so the problem came back pudding,not idleing correctly same as when i ran out of gas. I have ran a fule injection cleaner, changed the fule filter check the pressure of the fule pump it was ok. but still same problems. as well as a ignition module no look. 1992 buick park avenue 3.8.

    thanks. I forgot to inform you that the ignition module did not work on my car. the main problem is that ;;;;; it starts up great but when it's on for like 10 min it starts idleing bad almost like the gas is not geting to the injecters. it jittiers and i turns off. but will start up only if i give it gas but it will not go on drive or revers turns off right away. after a cuple of hours it starts up like nothing ever happend.

    Car was originally hesitating, took it to dealer, got ripped off for 5 big ones and all they replaced was coil packs. Later one month later the car started dying about 5-10 minutes into driving. Will only restart after it has cooled down. Then same thing again. Someone thought it could be fuel pump, others are tellling me to replace ignition control module. Any suggestions?

    Mine is a 1991

    my problem first started after i filled up my tank, i parked down hill on an angle for about 10mins at the most. when i started my car it was not idleing like it should/wanted to die on me, got my car on level ground, then it was runing fine 4 awhile. i put fuel cleaner, didnt help,then changed my fuel filter and changed my sparkplugs and my air filter. but still the same thing, my car wont stay started, and idles incorrectly, and when i give it gas it wants to die as if its loseing power or not geting enough fuel. what should i do next?

This definitely sounds like a fuel pump/filter issue. Good news if it's the filter, it's only about 10 dollars to buy a new one and about 5 minutes labor, including jacking up your car.

Fuel pumps cant be a pain in the arse at times, others are fairly easy. Best way to determine if it's the fuel pump, run over to Canadian tire and pick up an ohms meter. Test the fuel pump that way.

Then try to start the car normaly and drive to the gas station and fill the car up. Oh and stop running out od gas!

My ninty three olds royal has a chect engine light that comes on and off. what can I do?

problems can range from the gas cap not being tightened enough to massive engine failure, but if it's on and off it's most likely a mass air flow sensor problem. turn your car on and pop the hood. search the entire engine bay for leaks in your exhaust system. A good sign of a leak is engine sludge when you change your oil and air filter's getting clogged and dirty significantly faster than normal.

Have your fuel pressure tested, sounds like pressure is low either from plugged fuel filter or faulty fuel pump, or both. Takes about 10 minutes for mechanic to test it, then you can start from there, if, or if not fuel related.

1997 S10 pickup starts then shuts off in 2-4 seconds

when its in that not running stage or it dies you need to try and shoot a little starting fluid or gasoline into the throttle body or air cleaner and try and start it again .. If it starts then we know you have a fuel pump going out .. and its in the gas tank .. thanks Jerry and holler if you need more..

Lite poped on for gas filled it and now wont stay going

You got a tank of bad gas. You need to drain the tank and refill with good gas. If that doesn't resolve issue you need to check fuel pressure to see if the fuel pump gave up on you.
