1998 Buick Park Avenue problems.. Sign In

I have a 1998 Buick Park Avenue Ultra, that is having some strange problems. About a month ago I was driving to get some gas and the car started to heave, like I was running out of gas. I almost had to pull off to the side of the road because I thought it was going to die. After a few seconds it went away and I was able to get my gas. I filled it up started it, everything was fine. I thought I had some bad gas, something in the line. I went about a month with no problems. Until last week. Went out to go to work. Again the same thing but worse. Felt like I was out of gas, wouldn't accelerate, speed went up and down. I luckily got it back in the driveway. I had it towed to my mechaninc, he checked it out for a few days. He said it was a sensor, he made the repair. $430. Drove it home no problems. Sunday go to start it up. Again same thing. Chugging like crazy. The problem seems to come and go, but is becomming more frequent.
Just wondering has anyone else experienced this with a similar car. What could it be?
Any help would be great.
Thanks, Bobbie

It sounds like a fuel pump problem but the pressure would have to be checked during the failure.

I concur.
Intermittent running issues can be the hardest problems to find. I would go back to your regular shop and let then try and go round two with this; they at least know that it can’t be the sensor they just replaced (unless it turns out to be a defective new sensor?).
The could be’s are almost endless; the best to hope for is that the car keeps doing its thing the next time the Tech gets under the hood with his test equipment.
