1990 buick lesabre acting like its going to stall when i push on gas pedal? isnt getting gas!

Asked by Apr 26, 2016 at 06:10 PM about the 1990 Buick LeSabre Limited Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

when i first start driving, its all good but after awhile the car will start
jumping when i push the gas pedal down. It will almost stall. and after a
while it wont get gas. its not the fuel pump. i just got a fuel filter put on. i
was thinking its was maybe a sensor or the injectors are not hitting right. I
have to knowledge of fuel injectors so its hard to say. i just got a tune up,
new wires and spark. its some sort of gas problem

the air temperature sensor is a delicate wire to which minute amounts of electricity are sensed based on the current temperature...of a mind that the Intake Air temp sensor may be defective https://www.google.com/search? q=1990+Buick+LeSabre+Limited+Sedan+air+temperature+sens or&biw=1360&bih=649&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ve d=0ahUKEwiv65rJqa3MAhVF9h4KHbybD8cQ7AkIKA

a throttle position sensor can cause symptoms similar to this too. it would help if you could scan your computer for codes. really easy using a paper clip and counting the flashes of the check engine light. google how to scan gm obd1 codes and watch a video, easy. might help you narrow it down.
