1999 Buick Regal 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

My 1999 Buick Regal I've had for about 17 months. It has close to 95 000 miles and it is fun to drive. The 3800 cc is powerful. Now it decided to stop most of the time when I apply the break.
I changed the battery, thinking that it did not have enough juce to satisfy all the electronic gadgets.
One mechanic suggested to flush the gas tank. An other mechanic thinks that it may be the ABS computer that is acting up! It is true that it stalled at different speeds. Most time though it stalls imediattely after I start and apply the break at low speeds!
Do you

Hi:
Has the check engine light ever come on? Also, have you checked fuel pump pressure?

Her is a how to as far as checking fuel pressure.

The gauge can sometimes be rented at a parts store, or you can purchase one at the Test Equipment Store on this page.

Let me know what you find.
