Customer Question
It’s dying on me...

It’s dying on me out of no where. If I can feel it getting ready to die I can give it gas

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

I only get about 120 miles out of a full tank. It’s hesitated loner than normal before it starts. My gauges just started bouncing recently. If I give it gas before it dies it will keep going.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Buick?

97 regal

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Regal yourself? What have you tried so far?

I e i e

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Ive not changed the fuel filter yet but that’s what I’m doing today
