Buick Skylark Problems

"No Start" Due to Ignition Switch Failure

The ignition switch may fail causing a no start condition. This is not generally a theft system (passlock) issue because the security light does not illuminate or flash.

Key Stuck in Ignition Lock Cylinder

The automatic transmission shifter may fail causing the ignition key to become stuck in the ignition lock cylinder.

Coolant Leak & Engine Overheating

A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. This can result in an engine overheating condition. A leaking water pump will require replacement.

Buick Skylark Reviews

I have a 91 skylark 3.3 that only has 57000 miles that are original miles. Thia car I bought off my nephew. It needed a crank position sensor and a couple injectors. I can't say one bad word about this car.Runs good and it is fast.
Engine is starting to lose power and "putter" around. However, when its in park it does not show any that it has any problems whatsoever. Front windows quit working months ago. The sway bar fell off as well. Overall, this thing is a piece o crap. Luckily i only paid 300 bucks for it.
can anyone help, i have a 1997 buick skylark, has 179,000 miles on it, my transmission is starting to slip. is there an easy fix or should i get another car? i've had this car sence 1998, maybe time to put it down?
