Question about 1989 Buick Skyhawk
I have a 89 buick skyhawk and it was recently broken down about a year ago and the ignition control module went bad. So i fixed it and it was fine up until about 2 months ago. I drove it daily, has a little anti-freeze leak nothing big and burns a little more oil than most cars but i keep on top of it and it ran great. About 2 months ago it started acting weird and i am unsure why. Bear with me i am unsure how to explain this. After running for about 20 minutes-about time enough for it to start getting real warmed p it would die at stoplights, stop signs, any time i was stopped and i would have to put it in neutral and start it u and rev up my engine the put it back into drive real FAStt before it died. I know not good for it but i HAD to. I didnt drive it but a fw days that way cause i didnt have a choice. anyways, a took it out for a drive about a month ago after my father tried and ajusted the carburator a little to see if it would help he also changed the fuel filter with no luck and the car still died, faster it seemed like. and also that was the time i noticed that i also seemed like when i was pushing the gas when first taking off it seemd like there was no gas then it would **** and kick on. I am desperate with the rising gas prices to get my car back up and running cause im driving a truck now. Can anyone please help???

its the electrical connection at he fuel pump,if this is ok ask if they replaced the strainer on your fuel pump,your fuel pump is inside your gas tank ,you have to drop the tank to service,most fuel pumps are not warrantied if you dont change the strainer,when your car shuts off the sediment on the strainer falls back into the tank,but when you run your car and it sucks up the gas thru the strainer to the pump it clogs the strainer and the fuel pump cant pump,you shoiuld find out if they changed this because your forcing your fuel pump to work harder,was it a new fuel tank or used one that they put in

The crank sensor is located on the side of crankshaft damper/pulley it mounted on a bracket. However it think that you may have a map-sensor problem that's very common with this vehicle. The crank sensor is not hard to change at all. Good Luck get back in contact if you need more help
