My wife's [ Mary Pat] 94 Buick Regal keeps stalling while going down the road....sometimes as much as 10 stalls on one trip from Lower Gwennyd PA to Holland PA. Her car was in O'Neill's Buick in Warminster, PA for a week, & they could not solve the situation. It was slso in Kar Klinic of Southampton , PA for 3 days & they found nothing while on their dianostic machine. This is a VERY dangerous car. Stanley J.

Problem occurred around 2012. Car would start but would require constant press of the gas pedal or the engine would cut. Took the car to a mechanic and replaced the mass airflow sensor. Three years and 15k miles later, problem has not resurfaced.
