Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Buick Lesabre 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 152k miles
I have a 94' Buick Lesabre 152k miles. I have had it a the mechanics garage for about 5 days now. The well known mechanic has still yet to find the problem.
I need a special adapter for my car to get error codes, but luckily, no one has one! Car X, Auto Zone, Advanced Autos, Macco, Midas and the list goes on.
Whats wrong: Where to start. Ok, the car is two faced some days it would run fine and another day it wouldn't start at all. At first it was just missing and shutting off or stalling when it was idle. Once or twice as I was actually driving, like on the gas. I changed out the spark plugs and fuel filter and it ran ok for about a week then it started up again. I'm telling you this car decides when it wants to mess up thats why the "mechanic" can't fix it. The day I took it to the garage it wouldn't stay running, even in idle. I had to floor it just to get it to stay running and even then it was missing and wanting to shut down. So the next day I went back to the car in the morning and it started right up and drove perfectly to the garage. We have no clue what it could be, and I'm not expecting a correct answer. I just need somewhere to start.
Any suggestions of what it could or would be, will be much appreciated!
thanks for your time.
