Hi! So I have a 1996 Buick LeSabre. I got it from a friend after it sat for better part of a year in his driveway. There are some electrical issues, but so far nothing that required more drastic action than removing the lights inside the car.
My friend let me pay it off over 10 months and naturally, one week after the final payment, the car started to have stalling issues. I noticed that the oil pressure light would come on if I was idling, either in traffic or at a light. I was stuck in traffic trying to get to work one day when it just up and stalled out of nowhere. It restarted after a few minutes, but stalled again a few miles down the road. I was able to pull it into a parking lot and look at it. The fuel line was corroded and the fuel filter was in bad shape. I had those replaced. I thought my issues were gone! However, today it stalled again.
I was stuck in traffic and it stalled, restarting after about 20 minutes. The temperature gauge is reading that it’s fine. There’s gas in the tank. I checked the oil and it’s good too. However, the biggest indicator of something going on is the oil pressure light coming on.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing the stalling? I appreciate your answers and help. Thank you.
