After starting it and letting it run for about a min. I go ahead and put it into gear from park and it shuts off immediately.

I replaced the plugs due to fouling of fuel from tryingto start it. I also replaced the crank position sensor thinking that it was not signaling correctly. I justnow installed a TPS. Still starts and runs smoth when cool until about operating temp.

Had new water pump & thermostat installed. Also new double platinum spark plugs & wires at same time. Now radio reads LOC, check engine soon light is on, backfire like noise when I start it ( not superloud though) , sounds terrible under hood, & noticed antifreeze dribble on pavement....

I enjoy my Buick a lot. Only gave the engine a "4" since a modern 3900 gets more power with a few extra MPG, it's very good though. Runs smooth at all times, shift smooth while still being pretty fast. Nice low cruising RPMs, like 2000 at 75, it'll do 1100RPM at 25 and about 1250 at 45.

Do not buy one of these GM pieces of CRAP. almost everyone has electrical issues. GM JUNKER
