1995 Buick Lesabre Riding really rough

\015 My babied Buick was left for the winter months in the back yard. When I came back I had to have CAA town the car out. They bend the tri rod, etc and were responsible for fixing it, etc. Now the car is riding very rough, had the spark plugs checked, also flue injection. Cost $300 and no results, still righting very rough. Cannot drive at high speeds, just around town. Am picking up from Canadian Tire and they know something is wrong but cannot find it.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Have a '96 with 254,000 miles with a similar problem after it sat about 6 weeks waiting for a transmission. Ended up being the fuel pump. You've gotta drain, then drop the tank, clean all the rusty crud out of it, replace the fuel pump AND screen AND filter. Cost me about $160 for parts in FL

I have a 1992 buick regal limited 3800. The car will start but fails to keep running. Sputters roughly and have to really step on the gas to get it started. It broke down the other day and after about a good half hour it started again but with some effort. When i do get it going it expels black smoke out the exhaust. Fuel pump? Injector leakage?

I have a 1997 buick century with only 45,000 miles on it. Yesterday while going highway speed, the antilock brake light came on, followed by no brakes, gas gauge fell to 0 (has a full tank), no steering, just a complete shut down. Took a while to restart and ran just enough to get close to home but very rough with nothing working again the farther I got. Any suggestions?

I have a 1990 Buick Skylark standard 4 cylinder engine. Recently it stopped running on me on the highway. I noticed loss of power at the throttle slowly decreasing in power, followed by vibrations slowly growing stronger until it was quite noticeable by all passengers. I let off the gas pulled over and the engine died. Wouldn't run after that. It would run if I held down the throttle but ran really rough and died the instant you let off the pedal.

My 1995 Mustang GT has been running rough recently. It idles really rough. It'll bog down really low to about 500rpm, then it'll rev up to 1100, settle at 750, idle good for about 15 seconds, then repeat. When driving down the road in overdrive, the car will jerk (or miss) when in a higher gear. I can turn overdrive off, and it'll run perfect. There was one occurrence when I was just driving as I usually do with a normal amount of throttle, and the car wouldn't shift up until I hit about 3500 rp
