    Does it die when you come to a stop? Then crank up in neutral and cut back off when you put it in drive?

Why does my 92' Buick Skylark keep dying Out.?


You have 2 issues here #1 the engine is running hot . Test the cooling system fans they seem to be not working. #2 car dies i would start with testing the secondary ignition (spark).

Voltage regulator


Sounds like a bad connection. The alternator only charges the battery, so if it or the voltage regulator in the alternator fails, the battery would slowly run down, not die all at once.

Have a 1996 buick skylark 3.1 liter v6 changed fuel pump,ignition switch,worked fine for 1 yr.now when you try to start it.it fires,runs 3-5 seconds then dies.whats wrong?


It could be a security problem. These vats systems are known for it. There would be a light illuminated on the dash somewhere that would say SECURITY. Here is a link on the antitheft security system to help you.

Every now and then it will stall out. just wait about 1/2 hour and it will start up and run good again


Sounds like the "Crank Position Sensor"...especially because it will start fine a few minutes later...tough to confirm by codes on this one...do any of your gauges go beserk when your Buick stalled? This would again point to the same intermittent starting and running problem...part is about $35. May need help to install...:)

Car dies when it heats up and won't crank back up until cooled


normally a speed control sensor can solve this problem, but also check the crank senson.

1988 buick century dies when put in gear


Sounds like the lock up torque convertor in the transmission is stuck in the engaged position.There is a sensor switch under the hood that can be temporarily unpluged but leaving it unplugged can ruin the transmission. Take it to a tranny shop.
