Question about 1987 Buick Century
My friend has a 1987 Buick Century that will stall at random times while she is driving or idling. The problem has gotten worse and she stalls out more often. He mechanic is unable to find the problem without her paying a bunch of money to troubleshoot different areas. I have a friend who is a mechanic and suggested that it might be the fuel filter or fuel pump. Would it make sense to have her change the fuel filter and start there or would that not be enough to cause the car to stall so frequently?
I had a 1987 Century and when mine started acting like that I took it to a garage and they hooked it up to a computer tester for free. Is she getting the check engine light coming on? They found that mine was running (lean) which ended up being my fuel pump. Which is in the gas tank and can be pricey to get done, between $250-$350 and of course the filter would get done at the same time and that is only$20
