The float is probably mis-adjusted in the carburetor.
Either that or the choke is out of adjustment.
It would probably bne best to rebuild it if you can, or have it rebuilt.

1993 buick skylark stalls


Is the check engine light on ?
It sounds like the engine temp sensor is not right, but if that were true you should have a check engine light and a code for the sensor.
Have you checked fuel pressure ?

Why does a buick skylark have 2 catalytic converters


If there's no power loss while accelerating, 99.9% guaranteed not to be the cat. converter. I'd start with the ignition module. When they go bad they can, almost always, still work properly when they're cold but then fail after they warm up, and it's because of this fact that when you have it tested, it needs to be tested 4-5 times in a row. This constant testing will bring it up to the temp where it would fail. Even a bad module will pass the first couple tests.

Is it the cold weather not allowing my car to go in drive?


Yes the cold can do strange things. Try leaving the car to warm up for 10 min prior to driving.

When you remove your thermostat check the number stamped on the thermostat. In cold weather you want a high number and opposite cold weather. Right back with number
