Engine Mechanical problem
1991 Buick Century 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 189195 miles
Hello, hope you can help. I just had another problem happen. Yesterday I was accelerating, about 25% throttle, and around 45MPH the car just flat out stalled, like I turned the key right off. I pulled over, tried to start it, and it would not start, it just would turn over and over and over. I checked simple things, heard the fuel pump priming, have fuel at the fuel rail. I got it towed back to my house, let it sit for a couple of hours while it cooled off, and went to start it back up again, and it started and ran 100% normal. I let it idle for 10-15 mins, then I revved the gas a couple of times, and it just stalled out, like I again cut the ignition off. No amount of pumping/flooring will get it to idle back. I tired to start it, and it starts and stalls right out. Let it cool off, and again, it will start, rev, drive, great, but only for a couple of miles. Once it gets warm it just dies right out. Im thinking Crank Position Sensor, but it seems pretty involved to change, so want to make sure. Thanks all.
