Have someone check the crankshaft position sensor. We have a 1990 Park Avenue with the 3.8 and it turned out to be that. Our car died with my wife driving on the way home from work and once she ran up on the curb and drove down the side walk and finally got it stopped (no power steering or brakes) she was able to immediately start the car and it ran fine all the way home.
