Sounds like a major slippage of the gears in the transmission... if either of you are mechanically inclined the easiest to check would be the axle gearbox so do so first look for stripped gears. honestly to me it sounds like a transmission problem... if you can get it to a transmission repair shop they will usually test drive or listen to it and for free will tell you if its the transmission or axle.

1993 buick skylark wont start. its not getting spark. changed coil packs, still no fire. battery is fully charged, fuel pump comes on. why would stop it from turning over fully?

is the check engine light on?if you have no spark, start with the wires, and work your way back. you say that you replaced the coil packs..... it could be a crank position sensor. please get back to me if the check engine light is on. also, let me know what happened from the start. were you driving? has the car sat for a while?

I have a 1995 buick lesabre and i changed control module,position sensor,cam sensor and computer. car stop and will turn but want start. when i first bought car it had this vibration on take off but never...

Are you getting gas and spark to the cylinders?

If you add gas to the throttle body, does it start?
If so, then you have a fuel pump delivery problem in this vehicle.

If it doesn't start, then you may have a spark problem at the spark plugs due to a coil pack going bad or a module (but you said you changed the module).

Also, is this a 1995 Buick LeSabre of a 1993 Buick Skylark (which it is listed under)? What engine size is this?

1993 Buick Skylark- Starts but immediately powers

Could be fuel filter, best thing to do is chg. fuel filter and do a fuel pressure test, don't think for a moment that it can't be the pump they have been known to go out just that quick.
