Question about 1996 Buick Regal Olympic Gold
While driving on the interstate (while accelerating) my car (96 Buick Regal Ltd) started ''jerking''. The next day, the check engine light came on. I had the diagnostic computer put on it and it came up as ''Auxilliary Emissions Control sensors'' I can't remember exactly what the code number was. At first I thought it was plugs, but now I'm confused. The check engine light came on a couple of weeks ago with the same code, but went off the next day (the car was driving fine) so I just ignored it at the time.
I need the fault codes. Without the codes I can't help, just to many possibilities. Have never heard of any fault code that cited Auxiliary emission control sensors" in my 35 years of emission repair on all makes and models. Sooooo... have the fault code(s) read again and write them down. Autozone does this test for free.

IF THE CRANK SENSOR GOES BAD ON THAT ENGINE THE CAR WILL STOP RUNNING OR NOT START IF TRYING TO START IT. NEED THE CODE INFO TO HELP YOU FURTHER. TRY GOING TO ADVANCED TO GET THEM TO READ THE CODE-THEY DO THIS FOR FREE.

Check to see if you have a lot of dirt in the throttle body. Clean the throttle blades out with brake cleaner or throttle body cleaner. You'll see alot of dirt come out. Keep spraying until it comes out fairly clear and wipe the throttle body out with a rag. If this doesn't do it, you may have a problem with the throttle position sensor (TPS). This sensor controls the idle after the car warms up and keeps it from dying when you brake or sit at idle.

I would look for a fault in the ignition system such as a cracked spark plug. Might need a scope check to put your finger on the problem

The ignition switch on that model is rated @ 50amps. When I was driving my 2001 Regal LS (at 120,000 miles) and used the turn signal, the engine would die, when I switched the turn signal off, the engine ran. So I replaced the ignition switch, and all is well.
