It is stalling while running and also sometimes when I first

Customer Question

It is stalling while running and also sometimes when I first start it,it will stall out and start spitting and sputtering and won't stay running. But after I keep starting it and reving it up it continues to do this for about 5-10 starts and after it has this ocassional spell, it will sometimes run well for a few days and then all of a sudden take another spell.
JA: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?
Customer: Yes, and stalls both when Idleing and when driving and also when I first start it up.
JA: What is the make/model of your car?
Customer: 2005 Buick Lesabre
JA: Are you fixing your LeSabre yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have had 2 different mechanics look at it. The first one replaced Points and Wires, Fuel Filter and Coolant sensor, the second one replaced the crank sensor. He now thinks it is the Ignition module
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Would it be the ignition module and if so should I also replace the igniton coil? Thank you.
