Question about Buick Skylark

1 Answer

1995 skylark My skylark has had an ongoing problem. It runs fine for a while days,or weeks then in the middle of traffic it will die then wont start. It takes about 45 minutes to cool down than it will start. I'm thinking it may be fuel related

    OK. But why won't the car start again until it cools down. I'm sure it is related to something besides the tranny.

It may be the torque converter clutch solonoid in the transmission , not a major problem. When the car heats up and dies it will feel sort of like comming to a stop in four gear in a standart transmission with out pushing in the clutch ( bucking type feeling ) what the T.C.C. solonoind does is disengauge the engine from the flywheel when you are comming to a stop ( 125 auto transmissions had a lot of problems with that) hope this is helpful. peace S.R.
