Had the same problem drove me nuts until I tried disconnecting Mass Air Flow Sensor, the car should drive normally but with a "Service Engine Soon Light" on. Mass air flow can run from $140 up, picked one up at recycler for $40.

Worth a try.

I have a 99 Buick regal that stalls while driving or just sitting still replaced mass air flow sensor an that didn't fix it and no garage can figure out why its doing it can you please help. to describe it...


Replace the fuel filter. If that doesnt do it which it probably will, make sure the fuel pressure is consistent, as it could be a faulty fuel pressure sensor.

Which Solenoid to buy???


Replace the crank sensor to fix it. It's next to the crankshaft pulley which has to be removed to replace. Next time it gets hot and shuts off , spray or pour some water on it and see if it will start. If it does then you will know what to do.
