Yes, a 2001, you're well overdue for a tuneup... a tuneup will bring it back to life again. It should cost less than $100, and is something any local garage or dealer can do. Takes about an hour.

My Buick did that and I changed the spark plugs and plug wires and it corrected the problem. Hope this works for you. I had a couple of wires that shorted out when you were under power going up a hill. If you change the wires yourself only take one wire off at a time and replace with a new one and you will not get upset because you get the wires in the wrong plugs. Its hard to correct once you take them all off at once.

The moun sounds like it is probably bad. But you are addressing SHAKING. Most motors don't SHAKE. It may have a miss to it or not be running smoothly. It may need a tune up or have bad gas. Just remember this car is 12 years old and may need some simple TLC.

Bogs down when shifts into 3rd gear and speed levels out


there are several possibilities. by bogging down do you mean the engine runs smooth but looses power? or does the engine/car start shaking and doesnt want to go any faster? if the engine runs smooth and doesnt seem to be shaking...can you hear a noise from the engine compartment? or a hi pressure noise from the rear of the vehicle - like a vacuum cleaner? if so then you probably have a plugged catalytic converter. if the engine seems to shake the van and looses power until you let up on the throttle slightly then you have a misfiring condition which can be caused by bad plug wires,plugs or a coil breaking down. as you shift up in gears the spark needed to each cylinder is increased and if you have bad plugs,wires or coil the spark wont get to the cylinder when it is needed. see if any of this sounds similar to your condition and request more info from me if ya like. good luck. carefull the converter can cause a fire if it gets too hot!

Stalls out


lisalavin,

You said,

My 1990 Buick century stalls out when in park after idling for a minute or two and stalls out when brake is applied. last night it did this every time I had to stop or make a slow turn it also started shaking a bit but if i released gas a little bit it would stop. i thought the shaking might be the cvu joint as it needs to be replaced but it started doing it on straight aways and hills also but would still stop shaking if gas was eased up on. Closer to home when it was stalling the only way I could get it to stay running while I put it in drive was to have one foot on the brake and the other on the gas. Is this a matter of changing the fuel filter or is it something more complicated?

It can be one of many things causing this!
1. Low idle, needs to be raised
2. A vacuum leak, needs to be diagnosed.
3 The choke, if it's when it's cold or the engine is cold and not up to running temp.

4.But, I'll l bet it's a idle sensor

Or last and probably NOT a broken baffle in the cat converter!
this usually happens more often not just with the stop but even when driving!

Bless you,
huuum
You really need a good honest HANDS on diagnoses!

please give me a god rating before you sign off
