1991 Buick Century 6 cyl
This question is for my daughter so I don't know the mileage.
She's a single mom with 2 young kids living in the boondocks of N.C. Going to college trying to better herself. She just purchased a 1991 Buick Century from a friend because her other car just gave out. The Buick will start fine and runs great for about 30 mins. But then, when she comes to a stop sign or stop light, the car shakes, shudders and dies. As long as the car is in park, it will start right back up, but as soon as she puts it into any other gear besides park or neutral, it immediately dies again. The car will start back up again in gear after it cools down but the process repeats itself all over again.
She took it to a mechanic who has replaced the following:
Starter Module & 3 Coils
Did a Tune-Up (Plugs and Wires)
Front End Alighment
This has cost ALL of her savings ($500). Any help at all as to what this could be would be greatly appreciated! She can no longer afford to just replace parts indiscrimantely.
Thank you in advance!
have the same problem?
