96 buick skylark runs about 3 seconds then dies.whats wrong?

Fuel pumps don't slowly go out, they either work or they don't. I recommend replacing the mass air flow sensor, which is the square metal piece that's mounted in the middle of the big air tube that runs from the air filter housing to the intake. I replace the front head on mine and during the reassembly, I forgot to plug the wire back into the MAF sensor and had a similar problem. I would have it tested first if possible. If u have any other questions abt this car, feel free to send em to me directly, especially if yours has the 3.1 V6.

It could be a security problem. These vats systems are known for it. There would be a light illuminated on the dash somewhere that would say SECURITY. Here is a link on the antitheft security system to help you.

You need to have the tranny service. If it is a longtime the fluid could be too old to do it's job.
