Start jerking in trafic but on open road driving fine. when car cuts out after 5-10 min it starts

Sounds like you have a fuel filter starting to plug up. Try replacing the filter and see if your problem goes away.

1983 Buick LeSabre Wagon, cuts out driving down the road

Find the EGR valve on the intake and locate the vacuum hose that is connected to it. Start the engine cold and as it warms up, pull the hose off and if it idles and drives fine, the EGR valve is bad and needs to be replaced. Please rate me on this answer.

Driving down road car will loose all electrical, start cutting out, shift into low gear & die. After boosting car seams to be charging just fine. I have had in the shop many times for this - can't find...

My car would die on me without warning, it seemed to be the transmission. My dashboard would light up and and the car would cut off. When I pull over to the side of the road the car start up fine but will not go into gear (will not pull).

I'm on my 3rd transmission I hope the problem been solved now.

Sounds like you got some bad gas. I would either try an additive to remove water and some octane boost. If that doesn't work you will need to drain the tank. This has been a real problem with the price of gas going up. Some stations in my area have been shut down for putting water in the gas. If it was running fine before you got gas, then more than likely this is your problem.

Rtae this as a Fixya if this solves your problem. Ask more questions if you need to.
