Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi Larry, IM AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.
Larry, depending on the year of the vehicle and if it has a security key type system the answer to your question is yes BUT this type issue would kill the engine completely. Let's talk about acceleration, you see if your vehicle has an electronic gas pedal and you have issues with it then it can cause lose of power, BUT the engine will still stay running. Larry, this is only a couple of issue out of many others that could be happening with your problem. Hope this helps and should find time visit my auto-repair-website and give me a shout out. http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

A lot of work & a pain in the rear if you don't have the right equipment. The biggest part is squeezing the coil springs and busting out the upper and lower ball joints. If you've never done it before I'd recommend taking it to a shop that has the pneumatic equipment to do the job. This is a real knuckle buster and worth paying somebody else to do it.

SOURCE: 96 Buick Century stalls....
I spent endless time on this same problem on my 1992 Wagon. I changed out the computer but no help. It turned out to be the top dead center crank sensor that tells the system when the crank passes TDC. It is a small magnet essentially about the siz of a pencil eraser in the flywheel. it was cracked and occasionally would not "sense" and the car would just quit. troubleshooting was a nightmare because the computer diagnostics on the 1992 are less capable than the 1996 model. Anyway that is a relatively inexpensive fix and easy to know if it worked. Let me know how you solve this.
