    Check fuel pressure with a gauge. Check for sparkplug fire. If no fire replace the crank sensor.

1991 buick park ave was running rough,changed front fuel filter.

I will need to have a little more information...does it turn over...and if it does...does it seem to be turning over faster than normal since that could indicate a timing chain problem.

1991 buick park avenue will not stay running and runs rough

I think you got your answer to the alarm issue. I had the same problem with rough idling, lack of power, and the chugging that occured when going up hill. I have a 1991 Park Avenue with 190k miles. Fixing the catalytic converter helped, but the real problem was in the ignition control module. It seems that older buicks will heat these units to the point that the glue inside melts and eventually exposes the electronics. Look for glue or exposed wires below the ignition coil. It's a $100 part that you should be able to change yourself. I hope that helps.
