It could be a plugged fuel filter so try some STP gas treatment and if the condition gets better with that then change the fuel filter

1992 Buick Lesabre Idle Problem/ Bad gas mileage


If there is no "Check Engine" light try a bottle of good injector cleaner in your gas, or cleaning the throat of your throttle body with a good spray cleaner. If the "Check Engine" light comes on then put it on a code scanner and that will point you in the right direction.

97 buick transmission can't find second gear.


Have you checked the transmission fluid? If it is full, does it have a burnt smell to it? If it does, change the transmission fluid and filter. If not, check all vacuum lines going to the transmission back to their source. If none of these is the case, I would check with a good transmission shop.

Jeep shuting off


I'm not sure what we're dealing with here, a 97 buick, or a jeep, but in either case it's either a vacuum leak, or your idle control sensor, or idle air contol valve. I suppose it could also be a clogged fuel filter. That's probably the best place to start... cheapest anyway.
