Problems with 97 LaCrosse


Buick Newbie
It will not stay running. The engine dies. Whether the gas pedal is compressed or not, doesn't matter. It dies.
It cranks and, if it runs for a few seconds, it flattens out and dies.
There is gas in the gas tank.

Any ideas?


I have one idea: you're experiencing some sort of dream or fantasy-like state?

It's a '97 LaCrosse, according to you... yet the LaCrosse didn't make its debut until 8 model years later.

Fuel Pump Resistor

Maybe we are talking about a 97 Regal? There is a part called the fuel pump resistor on the Regals. When it goes, it will do what you're experiencing. I believe it is behind one of the headlights. For more info, check www.regalgs.org I remember reading about this. Check into it.
