Question about 1994 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Other times my car will stall, sputter, **** while driving and seems to not be getting gas. Even going 70 down the highway it will stall. When it stalls while driving the dash lights come on.This happens on a daily basis regardless of where it is driven street or highway. When the Service Engine light comes on after a stint of the sputtering, the car will not stall however, it will rpm high and then toss hard into a higher gear. On 02/11/2010 i got it smogged along with a new water pump,spark plugs, anti-freeze, fuel filter, fuel induction service kit, engine oil, oil filter,and a new serpentine belt. I talked to my mechanic afterward and said the problem persisted and said it was due to bad gas. I bought the premium gas and the best fuel cleaners about once a month. Still nothing has changed. I have a 1994 Buick LeSabre Custom 64000 miles.

Check for corrosion on the sparkplug wires, both ends. Crankshaft position sensor, cam position sensor and lastly, gulp, the ignition control module..

    I had a 1993 lumina sedan that did the same thing, turns out it was loose wires in a wire harness. first time they thought it was a sensor but the bad wiring just made the sensor short out.

    Which wire harness was it? My 95 Lesabre's doing the very same thing.

It sounds like an alternator, yet you say the fan still worked after you disconnected the battery? And the car was still running? Or the car died out. Sorry, need some more details on this one.

It may also be the catalytic converter. If that gets plugged up it puts a lot of back pressure on the motor. This will make it hard to get up to speed. When not pressing much on the petal it will seem to run fine. Then when you press more to increase speed you will feel it.

Died while driving down the highway then won't start? We were going about 70 and it just died. I will turn over but not start. Any help would be great.


My first thought, is the fuel pump quit

That is where you start, or a repair shop should start

I do not like going anywhere near 70 mph for that reason,
& I'am getting too old to enjoy speed & spend too
much time making love to vehicles, to put them under
any load at high speeds or uphills

Continous surging and stalling


Per your description, I would suspect a fuel pump issue. When the fuel pump is running the pump impeller heats up. On an older pump the impeller can begin to seize up and momentarily stops and starts. Some times it just stops and has to cool down for a couple of minutes, then is ok for a while.
To test this theory, when the engine stalls and stops, your mechanic can use a rubber mallet and hit the bottom of the gas tank, this will free the pump impeller and the car will start again.
Or, have him install a fuel pressure gauge and go for a drive. If the pressure begins to fluctuate and drop, you know the pump is causing the issue.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,
