Car Stalling Problems

Why would a 1994 Buick LeSabre stall when accelerating fast but not when accelerating slow and to restart the car the ignition has to be turned all the way off or it will not restart?

if you mean stall like when stepping on the gas and it just starts to act as if it got punched in the stomach then this is what i did to my lesabre.First changed the clogged fuel filter,then on half a tank inserted two bottles of dry gas (cost is like 1.60 each from auto zone).Then I ran it down to E and switch the cheap gas from Sunnoco and put in Hess ...no problems.Made a mistake went back to Sunnoco after the problem was gone...it came right back.Went back to Hess no more problems.

This is a tough one as it could be a number of things related to either fuel delivery, (ie bad pump) or ignition related issues. In my case, my '98 S70 started to intermittenly stall while driving. Sometimes it would restart, other times it would not. After weeks of trying to diagnose, I had my mechanic make a 'road call' the last time it stalled & would not restart. Turned out to be the ignition module which he replaced & car is running great now

No, not unless the ignition is turned on.

Defective clock or it is wired incorrectly. Should be wired to have power when ignition is turned off. it sounds to me that the constant live has been lost to the clock, there are three wires to a vehicle clock, an earth, an ignition live and a constant live
