Sounds like a dirty carb is keeping the gas from getting to the engine. I would say pull it apart and clean it out good and maybe get new gaskets for it. The jets in carbs aren't that big and so a small spec of dust could greatly reduce the flow.

Also, check you can your spark plug to make sure you have a proper spark. This can be done by removing the plug and then holding it against bare metal on the block while you crank it.

SOURCE: fuel gauge is erratic after parking on an angle one time.

How many miles in this vehicle? Anywhere near 100k or better the fuel pump and float(Your fuel gauge control ) owe you nothing. Its a lot of work.

97 Buick lesaber runs good all sudden dies wont run Windows won't go up or down?

When it suddenly dies an wont run , is this a permanent situation or will it start an run again at a later time ? Do the windows not working only happen when it dies or is this all the time regardless of vehicle suddenly dying ? When it dies you have to find out what is missing Fuel , spark etc.. Find this out an test the appropriate system ! Check all wiring harnesses underhood for proper routing an no bare wires touching ground ! An do a wiggle test on the wiring harness with it running or with someone cranking over the engine to see if it acts up or starts ! How long does it run before dying ?

Cranks but wont run

Sounds like moisture got to the injection system. Put some good fuel treatment in along with more gas and it should take care of it. Also, check air filter for restrictions. Sometimes rodents build a nest in the filter box.

Have 91 cutless ciera that just died out while at red light. wont crank battery seems good. tapped starter and got a spark then it cranked but sounded rough like grinding. suggestions?

My first guess would be a bad connection. If it will not crank the problem has to be between the battery and the starter, including the key switch and the neutral safety switch.
If the torque converter locked up it would act like the transmission was engaged.
