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.

96 buick skylark 3.1, start & stalls. after trying to start it for a while it starts & runs great. shut it down & it goes back to start & stall. codes are p0170 & p0171. anyone can help...

First I would check vacuum lines. Replace as necessary. Could be the MAF sensor. Unlikely though. Need a scanner to check this. Next I would replace(aftermarket) or eliminate the catalytic converter. Both the codes are for O2 sensors. Too rich, too lean. Doesn't matter, above is what I would do first.

I have a 1997 Buick Skylark my fuel cap was not properly put back on and then the check engine light came on, what should I do?

check oil and coolant levels . Check if overheating. Check transmission oil level. If there is nothing obvious. Run the fault codes to check that it is the canister vent problem ( from the incorrectly fitted filler cap). Reset the light with a scanner

This sounds like a computer problem or bad connection, check all your battery connections and grounds. can you have it scanned for codes at an auto parts store, and see if there are any codes stored in the computer.

About 5 years ago my 95 buick skylark transmission went into safe mode for some reason. it still had park, reverse, neutral, but when put it into drive it would go into 3rd gear and stay there. It was...

Some issues with the engine or trans, can cause a third gear start (limp home mode) Dont get to happy it did not fix its self for good someone with a code reader might be able to steer you in the right direction ( A lot of codes get stored in the computer that never turn on the check ending lite ) Good Luck
