Well, that can be a ton of things. Usually it means: A. its not getting enough air, or any air. B. Its not getting enough gas. It could be a problem with the Mass flow Sensor- which can be cleaned or replaced-, or maybe a bad fuel pump or bad fuel lines or something. Either way the problem sounds like it just can't run because it can't get enough gas.

SOURCE: What is the llocation of a fuel pump for a1988 buick park avenue

Commonly submerged in the fuel tank. Some require the removal of the bottom rear seat, others need entire tank dropped to access.
If memory serves, you will need to drop the tank to access on the P.Ave.
Save yourself some time and pop off the rear seat just to be sure.

Someone put the wrong key (resistor value) in the ignition lock, you will have to disconect the battery for 3 min. Make sure you have the right key. Very important! Make sure the climate control is off before disconecting/conecting the battery.

1998 ford expedition booster new master cylinder new all disc break new break peddle goes to floor after bleeding hole system

You can bleed the system all you want and STILL have the pedal go to floor unless the master cylinder was bench bled in a vice BEFORE it was put on the vehicle. ALWAYS bench bleed a master cylinder before you put it in service. If you don't, you'll never get the pedal off the floor.

1995 ford powerstroke replaced rear brake pads,hardware, drums, and master cylinder after much bleeding it stops but at standstill with brake pedal pressed the pedal begins to drop

OK, did you bench bleed the master cylinder before installing? If not, the warranty will be void, and the pedal will drop even if the rest of the hydraulic system is sealed.
I would try another new master cylinder if the bench bleeding was not performed and the master cylinder was deemed to be damaged.

If the master cylinder was bench bled, and it does this, maybe you can get it replaced with a new one under warranty.

Good luck on this repair.

How to replace the brake master cilinder

Remove the lines running to it, and then unbolt it from whatever surface it's mounted to.
This can be done by taking some rubber hose and putting it from the holes for the lines, back into he reservoir on the new master cylinder. Make sure the new master cylinder is full of fluid. Put the master cylinder in a bench vice, and press in the plunger repeatedly with a screwdriver until no more air bubbles come out.

Then put the new master cylinder back to the mounting surface, and reattach the lines. Bleed the entire brake system.

I have replaced the brake master cylinder and bled the brakes. I still have spongy feel to them and it also feels as if the push rod is off, but it isn't at least not at the master cylinder.

you will have to bench bleed the new master brake cylinder. you can buy a kit the contains fittings and hoses to do this on the car. When you install a new master brake cylinder without bench bleeding it first air will remain trapped inside and no amount of wheel cylinder bleeding will remove it.
