Question about 1994 Buick Century

94 Buick 3800 Sometimes stalls when I use the brakes

After a week of driving this car, I still can't find the common link between times it might happen. Sometimes it will not happen in an hour of varied driving, other times I have to be prepared any time I touch the brakes for a stall. It might stall three times in a row, then I can't make it happen again the rest of the trip.
The car might be running a little bit rough. It starts right back up after it stalls, without a problem.

Check the EGR valve. Sounds like the three stage EGR valve is acting up. Look for any discoloration around the valve ports. This valve is located on the intake manifold near the throttle body.

1990 Oldsmobile 88 Royale acceleration and brake problems.


You could have a weak fuel pump causing it not to accelerate to a higher speed. The brakes going to the floor indicates that there may still be air in your brake system, ora bad brake booster not creating the needed vacuum for high velocity braking. The other thing is if you have an EBCM (Electronic brake control module) it could have dirty connections or just be going bad. Hope this helps.

94 buick lesabre brake light stays on and the bell rings constant


i'm thinking the emergency brake lever is down just a bit. try lifting it up when it does it to see if it shuts off. or maybe the float in the brake fluid res. is faulty. maybe try unplugging the wire at res. level sensor.
