There are several reasons that can cause your 1995 Buick Century to quit running. The most common reason is a lack of fuel. A bad fuel pump can cause the engine to quit running.
My 92 PA had a similar problem. Either the cam or crank sensor can cause this problem. If it is the fault, the error code can be read out from the computer. Mine would fail after the engine warmed up but would start again later.
My 92 PA had the same problem. After it cooled down it would start again. The crank and the cam sensors were found to be bad. These were replaced and I have had no problem since.
Possibly the crank case oil sensor. Had the same symptoms on a Buick LeSabre '91
Death is the most severe problem.
What can cause the RPM on a car to jump while driving is a problem with the transmission. It could be a problem with the gears in the transmission itself.
It's usually the fuel filter when a car does what you describe.
It could be the spark plug wires that's what was wrong with mine.
If the headlights flash on and off, there may be a problem with the bulbs or fuses. There may also be a problem with the battery connections or wiring.
It can lead to an accident
I had a similar problem with my 1992 Buick Park Avenue - it would cut out while driving - After replacing alot of sensors, maf, and coils etc - which did nothing - i found the problem was with the crankshaft position sensor - this is about $22 at autozone - not too hard to replace. Now no problems with cutting out at all. It could also be the timing belt. If the timing belt fails the engine will stop running and the car will not restart until it is replaced. TommyTrouble
I have a '92 PA that would die after it warms up. I had to have the crank sensor replaced and later had the cam sensor replaced. Either of these sensors can cause this problem. The computer needs both of these signals to send the fire signal to the correct spark plug. The old distributor used to do this function. Having the error code read out will tell you if this is the problem.
Problem with Crank sensor will cause 2001 Grand Prix not start when warm until it cool down? will this problem also cause vehicle to stall while driving?
The mass air sensor sometimes would cause this problem
One blown bulb or fuse could cause this problem.
I had a similar problem with my Mazda 626. The car will completely stall while driving and can not be started again except after few minutes.It turned out to be my distributor electronic ignition component gets overheated and stop functioning.When it cools off it starts again. Replacing the distributor solve the problem.
The most common cause would be low refrigerant.
The cause for a 1991 Ford Taurus to just cut off while driving is probably a problem with the computer. If the car will start again after about 90 minutes, then check the computer module for code errors.
Your a bad driver get a license
the ground to the battery i had the same problem on my truck
Try changeing the fuel filter,I had the same problem and it helped.
Check the battery connections.......this happened to me. Usually the positive post (side mount) is loosened.
I had an intermittent problem with that sensor on my PA. When the error code in the computer was checked, it showed up as a problem. I had it replaced. The cam sensor can cause a similar problem.
