I've had my 95 buick skylark to a reputable shop 4 times now to have the igniton moule replaced. He's as puzzled as i am, however, it's costing me several hundred dollars everytime he gets it back.
He says he's put the best diagnostic equipment on it and sees nothing that could be the possibleproblem.
Can you maybe suggest a few things that might help/? We have replaced the coils a nyumber of times also. Could it be the onboard computer, and is there a way we can check it.

Im 95% sure its a weak running fuel pump. Most of the time an engine that backfires is out of time tho. I would
check this first, as this is the problem 95% of the time. It could
also be bad fuel, a bad catalytic converter (rare) A bad coil, distributer cap or igniton module will definatly cause it. A fuel injector that is spraying excessive fuel out will cause an engine to backfire. Burned or leaking valves will cause it (rare).
if there is panal that will remove by switch then you can access it that way and if not you will need to remove steering wheel and go in that way.....good luck......please rate my post if this info helps
I have a 97 buick skylark with 3.1 engine, car turns over but wont start, replaced crankshaft sensor, coil module pack and checked fuel pump, but still won't fire, no spark at plugs, has anyone went through this problem and what is the cure
The reverse clutch pack is most likely burned up. You'll need a tranny shop to replace at least the reverse clutches, possibly more depending on the residual damaged caused by the reverse clutches. The more you drive it in this condition the more chance you have of destroying other clutches and requiring a complete rebuild. I hope this helps Please rate this and thank you
To make repair a new or good used one will be in your best interest. most well repairs,< if they are able to solder have to be done by experienced people>. Not what everyone wants to hear, but I have done a lot of trial and error and error wins most of time when experience is key.
