Question about 1993 Buick Skylark
Well if a tune up is that over due, it is definitely the first thing i would do. Fresh oil, new plugs and wires should be at the top of that list.
When you remove the plugs, inspect the ends and watch for oil and smell for gas. This could be signs of other internal engine problems that can't be seen from the surface.
Something I do on just about every car that passes my way with these type of problems is to smell the oil. Be sure there is no gassy smell or whitish look to it at all. Also look at the antifreeze to make sure it is not a milky color. These are signs of a bad head gasket or intake. However oil with some gas in it could also result from the vehicle being flooded multible times. So go forward with the tune up to insure this is not the case.
Once you have done all this, if problems still persist, please feel free to come back and we can go from there.
