Asked by Dec 16, 2013 at 08:40 PM about the 1996 Buick Riviera Supercharged Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 96 buick riviera with the
supercharger recently started stalling
out on me wether its warmed up or
still cold randomly will shut off.
sometimes it doesnt start at all just
cranks. I just replaced the crank
sensor back in april and it seems to
be the same issue i was having.
should i try the crank sensor again or
is it sonething else  please help

Since you stated you have changed the crank sensor and still experiencing difficulties..have you check/changed the cam sensor? Its appears as if there is a problem with your timing which causes problems for firing and gas getting to the injectors. Another consideration is check your injectors and the gas pressure.
