Buick Skylark QuestionsRefine by vehicle
i tried to start my car and it wouldn't start. my friend replaced a vacuum hose thing that had rotted and also the fuel filter and it idles but as soon as i tap the gas pedal it cuts out. another friend who is a mechanic says it sounds like the air flow sensor meter. he says it is easy to replace. i have no idea where this is located so that i can check it...or how much it will cost if it needs replacing.

At idle engine is rough (cylinder missing?). Will not accelerate above 30 mph.
2 months ago the spark plugs and "boots" were changed. Engine operated well after that until two weeks ago. Engine began operating rough at idle but then would operate smoothly at highway speeds. Then one Saturday, during in-town driving, the idle became much rougher and no power at highway speeds.
