    no muffled pop or anything like that it just simply stalls and will immediately restart,again it is just a periodic problem it has a 3100 engine and plugs/wires ect are only about 15 months old.

could be bad plugs, or a bunch of other things. need more info.

Sounds like the valves in the valve body are sticking,and maybe a lock up converter.Try this brand ,lube guard,for transmissions,it can be found at napa auto parts,it is the beat,and will most likely fix the problem,it is for transmission shutter.

My best guess is your not getting fuel so replace the fuel filter and do a top engine clean so that the computer can adjust the timing. with build up over time the gum and carbon buildup creates high compression and will cause the car to stall when you open it up from a dead stop. Also clen the backside of the throttle plate and replace the PCV valve let me know if this does not help.

96 Buick Century stalls....

I spent endless time on this same problem on my 1992 Wagon. I changed out the computer but no help. It turned out to be the top dead center crank sensor that tells the system when the crank passes TDC. It is a small magnet essentially about the siz of a pencil eraser in the flywheel. it was cracked and occasionally would not "sense" and the car would just quit. troubleshooting was a nightmare because the computer diagnostics on the 1992 are less capable than the 1996 model. Anyway that is a relatively inexpensive fix and easy to know if it worked. Let me know how you solve this.

Car idles fast when stopped and is now stalling, hard to restart

The Buick 3.8 has a Mas Air Flow Sensor, actually all fuel injected cars do, yet in the 3.8 it reacts just like your describing when it goes out. If you remove the breather hose you will see a honey comb thing in the intake , That is it. The 3.8 will not start properly without that hose not attached and the air filter has to be present and clean.
