The idle air control valve may be dirty with carbon and not working properly. You can try cleaning out the throttle body with two cans of throttle body cleaner, make sure you follow the instructions on the can and do not use carb cleaner. The carb cleaner is to corrosive to the gaskets used in throttle body's. Try to clean out the passage way to the idle air control valve at the throttle body. Once the throttle body has been cleaned and the instructions have been followed, you can reset the idle air control valve by turning the ignition keys to the on position for 30 seconds and then turn the keys to the off position then on for 10 seconds and then start. The engine may idle high then come down, wait for it to come down and idle for 1 min then go out for a test drive. that should fix the problem. If not try resetting the idle air control valve again. Good luck and keep me posted, most of the time it's a dirty or bad idle air control valve at the throttle body.

Have a 1995 Buick Regal. Car stalls when braking at a stop sign or braking into a left or right turn.RPMs drop to 500 then stalls without warning.Car starts right up with no problem and runs great.


Do you hear a sucking noise from under the hood when you apply the brakes? You could have a bad brake booster venting too much engine vacuum when applying the brakes causing the engine to die.

My 1994 buick regal gran sport jumps a lot when at a stop sign or red light, but when i accelerate the problem goes away. also when in park my RPM's drops extremely low and it sounds as if its goi


This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

I have a 94 buick park avenue ultra for 3 yrs. and it started stalling out. Going on line, some people replaced most sensors and gas filter. My problem was vacuum lines that were shot and one, going yo the fuel pressure regulator wasn't connected, which was the main problem.

On a 94 Buick Regal...where is the flasher located ?


In a lot of cars, the flasher relay is built into the hazard light button - yours may be as well. The simple fix is to go to a parts store, ask for the hazard relay for your car, and have them show you - if it's built into the hazard button, you'll be handed a new button.

You could possibly have a blown head gasket. Is there an awful amount of white smoke coming out of the tailpipe? If so, that's likely to be your problem.

sounds like the same thing that was wrong with the 94 GS i recently bought. found the crankshaft postion sensor to be bad. it controls your electronic spark timing which would allow it to turn over with out starting.
also does your stall when you are stopped and at idle or while at driving speed or both? mine would stall at idle and driving speeds. Changed that sensor and have not had any more issues with stalling. sensor should cost around $30-$40 dollars at your local autozone, takes about 2 hours to change just need to pull the harmonic balancer pulley (make sure to use the proper tool or you will bend the pulley) and the sensor is behind the pulley. you will gain easier access to doing the maintenace buy removing the passenger front tire and the little splash gaurd directly behind the tire held on by 3 quick release fasteners. hope this helps you out.
