91 Buick Skylark ran when parked but now won't


Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?
Someone will need to check for spark on all cylinders and fuel pressure.
You might try spraying carb cleaner or starting fluid into the throttle body to boost fuel supply and see if it helps. If it does that would tell you its a fuel problem.

Starter went out having trouble finding a starter that will bolt up. Tried 2 starters already the holes in the replacement starters dont line up. Car is a 1990 Buick Skylark.


that must not be original motor maybe. I'm sure there can only be two or three diff motors. take old one in with you and pull all avail starters for that car and match it up.

I have a 1997 buick skylark custom problems


I too have a 97 buick skylark custom, that hasn't been cranking. Heres what I have figured out so far, so you may have the same problem. Heres the first question - Is the theft system light flashing when you try to crank the car? Cause if it is, it means the car isn't wanting to recognize your key as the correct key which is causing the car to go into tamper mode which disables fuel to the engine, in which case you have to turn the key back to the start position and wait for the light to stop flashing then try to crank it again.

P.S. i'm not sure why this other thing would be a problem but i lost my gas cap right before this started happening and someone told my that might trigger the sensor, do you have yours?

My 91 buick skylark won't start. The battery is


More Information pleas, but I think it might be the neutral safety switch. Try starting the car in Neutral and see if it starts, if it does you need to have the NSS, replaced.

1996 buick won't start


Try having someone turn the key to the start position while at the same time someone else taps on the starter with a hammer. If starter begins to crank the engine or makes weird noises or begins to smoke then you need a starter. If nothing happens, then using a test light or a volt meter check for power at the "S" terminal of the starter solinoid when the key is turned to the start position. The "S" terminal is the small terminal to the right of the terminal where the battery cable goes when viewed with the battery cable terminal at the 12 Oclock position. (usually a purple wire). Hope this helps.

My car stauls when come to a stop


Try to clean the fuel system and inspect the fuel senser and injectors, it sounds like there is fuel stavation which can't allow the car to move at high speed.
