hello welcome to the site

has the air filter and throttle body been checked yet ?

how many miles on the car ?

Ask Your Own Buick Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
the air filter was checked but not the throttle body, the car has 100k miles
Buick Mechanic: Dino, auto tech replied 8 years ago

ok these are prone for carbon on the throttle plates and the intake.

periodic induction services are a excellent way to prevent this problem.

this is the first place i would start with and in the even this does not correct the idle issue then a new idle air control motor will need to be replaced.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
There isn't an idle problem, the engine starts and runs fine, but at times the engine will just die.
Buick Mechanic: Dino, auto tech replied 8 years ago

do the dash light go out almost like some one turned the key off while driving ?

or does it die while at a stop ?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
No the engine warning lights come on as if you just turned the key to on but not to start, I have been told there are electrical problems associated with this car, possibly the crank sensor, or the fuel pump, but I get no error codes
Buick Mechanic: Dino, auto tech replied 8 years ago

i just looked on my service and the their is not any information about this stalling.

when this dies does it restart right away or take a while to restart
