1995 Buick Century

Hello to All!

I have a 1995 Buick Century that I use to run around town with. For the past few months, I’ll be driving along and out of nowhere the car stalls. If I try to start it without turning the key ignition to the “off position” it starts but barley runs(sputtering,sputtering,then dies). But…if I turn the car off, wait 5-10 seconds, it starts up, purrs like a kitten, and runs beatifully again, until the next time it decdes to stall.(which may not be until the next day) Note: no idiot lights, or “service engine soon” or indications of engine problems occur. The problem…says my mechanic…is that it’s not “holding or showing” where the problem is occuring from and could be a myriad of things.

Any ideas… HELP PLEASE… Thanks to all! Tom
