Replace the crank sensor to fix it. It's next to the crankshaft pulley which has to be removed to replace. Next time it gets hot and shuts off , spray or pour some water on it and see if it will start. If it does then you will know what to do.

My 1990 park avenue has hesitation and sometimes shuts off but will start back up goes a mile or so and shut off again

Look at your fuel filter or fuel pump or a bad fitting on your gas line. If the code p0756 shows up. It will be your SHIFT SOLENOID B CKT PREFORMANCE or STUCK (OFF). But more than likely look at your fuel pump.

I have a 1990 Buick Regal v-8 Does the radiator fluid move from radiator to reservor as engine heat and cools or remain in radiator except under extreme heat conditions?

A certain amount will run into resavor or draw out after it is shut off no matter what the tempature is, the only exception is if it is low on coolant in the radiator it will draw out of the resavor to maintain the right amount to the cooling system. but when engine is running it should not do either one because the coolant is flowing.
