    wow so werid i'm having the exact same problem with a 1990 skylark, just bought it friday, it had been sitting for a few years, only has 28,000 orig miles everything on this car is factory, changed the fuel filter, ran great for a few hours, then bam same thing started again, you start it, idols for a few then stalls out, sometimes with start right back up, others you have to wait a few minutes then after a few trys will start up and run, sometimes a few blocks, sometimes more just depends on when it feels like stalling out again. Does this sound like the same thing? Just the injectors? Thanks so much

    you need to have the injectors ohmed out for the resistance factor

You have a shorted fuel injector that is taking out the quad driver in the computer that is why i said did you ohm the injectors it should be 4.1 to 4.3 ohms per side anything less will shut off the quad driver in the computer. each individual injector should be 12 ohms

I have a 1991 buick skylark,3.3 l. It started dying when hitting the gas at the bottom of a hill. Slowly started dying here and there. Then it would only idle until I touched the gas and it would die....


How do you know the fuel pump is good ? Did you do a fuel pump pressure test with a test gauge ? Did you test the fuel pump electric circuit ? Is the check engine light on ? There is a fuel pump relay under the hood engine compartment . The right front behind the headlamp are four relays , the one to the left is the fuel pump relay .I'll send a link to a video on testing the circuit !There also is a fuse in the wiring near those relays , it's power for the fuel pump relay ! Or you have a bad fuel pressure regulator ! A plugged catalytic converter could do this , need to pull the O2 sensor an do a back pressure Test !

You may not have one. Just remove the bottom hose, or remove the engine drain plug put a garden hose in your radiator idle the engine while adding water this will flush your whole system. let the car cool replace engine plug add your antifreeze and your set.

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.
