Many things can do this.
First the tank may have a loose baffle that moves on an incline when you go uphill.That will obstruct the the flow of the fuel at the siphon feed tube.
OR the fuel filter may have sediments in it and will obstruct the flow the same way going uphill too

Having trouble with engine killing or running rough even after it's warm.


not for sure but it could be your cam sensor. if the check engine light is on then take it to a parts store and they can run a scan and give you more information

which engine..
stalls only at idle. but does fast right foot save it/?????????????
the same answer for gas engines.
there 3 causes in physics, called basics in SCHOOL.
1 to 10 tests using physics evidence
or 50+ causes,,,,,
and last statistics (engines do what the want, not by me)

1:never had tuneup full this decade. wins top honors...
2: EGR stuck open.
and 48 more. wana guess or test.
got tools>/?

ever heard of the 60k miles tuneup,? see all this things there.
in the operators guide?

2002 Buick Rendezvous over heating randomly


Don't worry about the fan. I think you have a bad temp sender unit. Replace that and see if it helps the stalling also. If not, go for an engine analysis. They will check for trouble codes and check engine sensor functions.

1993 Buick LeSabre surges and almost dies intermittently


Check fuel rail pressure.

Add fuel to beyond 1/2 tank.

A weak fuel pump do not like to ran low on gas.


When was the last gas filter and fuel pump change?

90-120,000 miles is the typical change out.

Fuel pump like to quit on a HOT day.

Test the pressure and see is it within specification.


Good luck
