why does my car loss power?

Asked by Jun 30, 2014 at 05:34 PM about the 1992 Buick LeSabre Custom

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I drive my car for about an hour or two and then it acts like it's not getting gas or it's overheating. I then pull over for about ten to fifteen minutes, shut it off and then it will start right up and seems that the problem is gone. Any ideas what the problem could be?

Replace the coil pack in your distributor, it solved my problem 1,500 bucks later, for a $50 fix, easy to do yourself
