    I'm almost 100% sure your problem is a low or week ground in your battery, if you have a week ground side the ECM will not keep the car running, I hope you check for this and let me know if it fixes it; the ground wire can have corrosion getting to the battery post or coming from the frame

Id say there's a problem with the system ground..undo the lug that connects to the chassis ground and wirebrush that lug...and the space where it bolts to, think that insufficient ground to the relay box has the relays dropping out....combined with a battery that may be older than five years old has led to a relay dropping out....the fuel pump or ignition relay is not seeing sufficient voltage to stay engaged....test at the relay box for GROUND...and varying voltages from the corrosion that is holding up the show

SOURCE: i need the firing order for a 1971 buick skylark

Here is the firing order for that vehicle and engine, that is if it does have a Buick engine with the distributor mounted on the front of the engine, but if the distributor is mounted on the back of the engine then it is an Oldsmobile engine and I have that firing order diagram also if you require it.

The heater works but the defroster won't work on a 1995 Buick Skylark, If it's the switch, how do I remove it from the console?


It's probably not the switch. These are vacuum control switches. There is a vacuum line that comes thru the fire wall. They get brittle and break. Most of them break under the hood. I would check this first.

sounds like you have a vacuum leak.  Did you get everything back together correctly.  Did you leave the coolant sensor disconnected.
