Question about 1993 Buick Skylark
Could be as simple as a much needed tune up. Fouled spark plugs and dirty oil/fuel and air filters make an engine strain harder to simply start and idle properly. If you have tuned up the car, then your idle could be set too low. This could be caused by a faulty sensor giving improper info to the computer, or there could be an issue with your timing being set to low. with your vehicle being a 1993, these settings may be manually adjusted or completely computer controlled. If the latter is the case, see if your check engine or service engine light is on or coming on and off from time to time.

You need to replace the TCC solenoid under the side cover pan of the transmission. You can also unplug the wires that go to the transmission in the front. After that it will not go into overdrive but it will stay running at stop lights untill you have it repaired.

Hi there.Hope this can help.On the top of the transmission there's a black electrical plug that the shift linkage goes in..It sounds like the range sensor is out of adjustment..If you try going from reverse to like first or second does it still stall.You may have to get it adjusted.Does the selector in the car where it say P R N D 2 1 Line up with its indicator.
