    when you say it wouldn't crank do you mean it wont start or engine wont crank. anyways the fuel pump is prob. in tank under the back seat pull out back seat if poss. and listen for humming when key is on, engine off. go from there

If the car will not turn over it would not be a fuel system related problem. If it were fuel related it would crank over but would not start.

99 alero sputters and when I give it gas it stops running

This engine is fully electronically controlled and when ever you experience problems like this the 1st thing that must be done is to have the basic testing done which is a scan of the electronic engine control computer for fault codes. Once you have read those codes you do the diagnostics based on them from the factory service manual.

I have a 1997 buick skylark custom problems

I too have a 97 buick skylark custom, that hasn't been cranking. Heres what I have figured out so far, so you may have the same problem. Heres the first question - Is the theft system light flashing when you try to crank the car? Cause if it is, it means the car isn't wanting to recognize your key as the correct key which is causing the car to go into tamper mode which disables fuel to the engine, in which case you have to turn the key back to the start position and wait for the light to stop flashing then try to crank it again.

P.S. i'm not sure why this other thing would be a problem but i lost my gas cap right before this started happening and someone told my that might trigger the sensor, do you have yours?

Dash lights started dimming then went away completely. Now the in dash stereo cd lost its lights as well????

Please do not mistake this as an insult but I must ask... Check dash dimmer switch settings (on headlamp switch) if set is ok. Next would probably be a bad ground wire to instrument cluster and radio lamp circut
