Take the car to AutoZone and ask them to check your car for codes. This is a free service. Sounds like a Crankshaft positioning or camshaft positioning sensor(s). Then replace them. My Buick had the same issue.

Moreover, your 92 Buick is known for the Crankshaft sensor wires rubbing bare. Look under a YouTube video that details exactly where it is rubbing. Search "92 Buick LeSabre intermittent stalls" Hope this helps
