95 Buick Regal randomly turns off

20

Asked by Jul 14, 2016 at 01:35 PM about the 1995 Buick Regal

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1995 Buick Regal that will randomly shut off while
driving at speeds lower than 35 miles an hour, if I take out
the key and restart it, it turns right back on. It is worst in the
heat, and had no trouble during winter.
Since summer hit I have barely been able to drive it for
more than two stops without it begining to turn off. If I have
to shut the car off, then turn it back on, more than twice in a
day it is pretty much done for the day and wont start again.
Putting the car in park seems to aid in the issue also.
And when I am on a slop my gears are hard to change from
park.

If I really have to run errands that can't wait I will leave the
car running while I run into the store or bank, ect., to
prevent it from shutting off., which helps a little but not
much, since even putting the car in park, seems to also aid
in the issue, it also makes the car heat up from It running in
idle for so long , so it starts to run pretty rough because of
that. So running errands are out of the question now pretty
much.

I have had so many things replaced and looked at, but no
luck.
Any body have any idea what the problem could be?
We dont have money for a new car, and im sick of putting
money into this one with no luck.

Have you replaced the fuel pump?

No, only the fuel filter.

i do apreciate the input, the only reason i did not think for it to be the fuel pump is because a couple of the symptoms online did not seem to match, symptoms as follows: (puttering at high speeds, loss of power during acceleration, loss of power to the vehicle while under stress, surging, and, finally, an engine that will not start.) If I keep my foot on the gas it will not turn off, so if im desperate to get home, I will use both feet to keep the gas going while I am stoped.

When fuel pump gets hot it will shut down,think that will be your issue.That explains running better when cold outside,change the pump will fix your problem.
