    it quits when my foot is on the accelerator! They say they have driven and driven it but unless it happens while they are driving it, they dont know what the problem is.

It doesn't really need to have the computer connected, a simple OBDII scan tool while driving will suffice.

I'm am assuming that when your Buick stalls it is when you are at a stop light or at any other time that you aren't pressing the throttle.
That problem is likely caused by a faulty or dirty IAC valve. The valve is an electronic choke that allows air to the engine when the throttle body valve is closed...hence, your foot is off the gas.

Less common problems for random in gear stalling is an engine-side/bank 1 oxygen sensor fault, a vacuum leak, TPS fault or CPS fault. But those also cause a starting problem as well which is not mentioned in your query.

    Does the service engine soon light come on or flash?

  • mdhunter1518 Oct 02, 2010

    no engine light, just battery light after car quits. At first I thought it was the battery and new one installed also. new spark plugs, fuel pump, air filter installed

    Have the alternator tested. Autozone and Parts Plus will do it for free.



Pure nonsense
Did they even drive it, with the scanner on it, not likely
They don't want those jobs,why else would you, and thousands of people on this site,have the same problems with dealers.

Find a good repair shop close to home.

Does the dealer even know, if your loosing spark,fuel,or anything else? Easier to give it back to you

    You can go to a dealer,maybe a different one or a local repair shop, but you need to leave the vehicle, until it does act up, or someone really good at diagnosing these sort of issues,is on to something.
    Not knowing when it will quit or be repaired, is unacceptable. You see other people on the site, in a similar situation. Only continued and proper testing will give results.

When pulling into a parking stall the car raced forward

try removing the floor mat.. sometimes the mat gets caught on the gas pedal and as you apply the brakes it applies the throttle. It would seem that the harder you press the faster the engine races...

1999 Regal GS -stalls, starting trouble, won't shift now

the batt is suspect...take it to autozone, or other place, they'll check it out free......the shifting out of park is a seperate issue, the pawl for the steering/shifter is not working properly....did you notice if the steering wheel would turn when the shifter is stuck?....probably not....when this happens try to turn the wheel back and forth-not hard but not gently- a little graphite dust sprayed in there would help.......hope this helps you out

2002 sequioa sudden stall

Often when the battery is disconnected or replaced the computer will lose it's learned idle settings. You could try letting the engine idle in park until the engine temperature comes up to normal and leave it like that for a few minutes, then put the Air con on and let it idle again for a few minutes, then switch the air con off and put it into drive. If it does not stall, let it idle in drive for 2 minutes or so, and then do the same with the Air con on. This should relearn the base idle settings and stop it from stalling on you. Before you carry out this procedure you should make sure that when you replaced the battery you didn't remove any other plugs or knocked anything that may be causing the fault. If you try this procedure and it still stall when you select drive, you will need to get a Mechanic to check the vehicle over.

Hope this helps,
