Hi. I also have a 1997 Ultra. I Had the same problem recently and I took the car to the dealer where they found out it was the gas pump, that is located inside the gas tank. Problem fixed. I also had an intermitent problem where the car would stall while driving, and would not start, also it was fixed by the dealer. Hope that helps.

P.S. Try to avoid just any shop with the this car. I had a lot of problems with mechanics that where not properly trained to work on the Ultra. In the end you are better of taking it to the dealer.

2000 buick park avenue ultra starts sputturing and then dies while driving. no lights come on and had the codes checked . shows nothing . just drove 2,500 miles on trip run perfect . now dying again

Is it possible that your getting bad gas in your area? since it ran fine on the trip and now that your back home its not? maybe try a different gas station. if not you'll probably have to take it to a well equipped shop to have it hooked up to a scan tool that can read data while your driving to see the ecm info when the problem occurs.good luck as intermittent engine problems can be difficult sometimes.

Car won't start after running out of gas

the fuel pump could be bad from running the tank low of fuel,or try pushing a small wire into the little valve in the fuel rail,to relieve air thats blocks the fuel,because the injectors dont always allow air to pass through it.
