1988 Buick le-sabre LTD 140K miles.
Car starts and runs OK when the outside temperature is
around 95 degrees F but if the temperature is above
95 degrees F the car stalls after I had driving it 4 or 5 miles. The engine cuts off suddenly. Sometimes even less if the temperature is hotter.
(And usually is since I live in the Nevada desert.)
The car starts OK after stalling but stalls again after after I put on gear sometimes it backfires and if starts it has no power. I let it cool of for about 20 minutes or so and
it will go for 1 or 2 miles and stalls again.
B/4 this problem started the alarm system was disconnected. Fuel pump and pressure regulator were replaced about a year earlier.
Do I have to move to a place were the temperature is not so hot.
have the same problem?
