I have a 1991 park avenue 3.8 which has 226,000 miles on it but runs great
and always has. I was going through the drive up window of a fast food
place when the car started to run a little rough then just quit. It looks
to be getting fuel but but no spark. Any ideas on what to look for?
My 1986 Cadillac died on me while comming home. Took the Gas Tank out
and looked at the Fuel Pump and the rubber fuel hose that sends fuel to
the Fuel Regulator and then to the Injectors had a slit in it and the
fuel preasure dropped and the gas just went back into the gas tank. As
soon as it cools down im going to put the Gas Tank back in with a New
fuel pump as I do not want to do this again and the car should work

Things to look at:
#1: Coil packs and controller(flat thing they are resting on)
#2: Timing sensor(s) are shot or the chain simply slipped
right off the cog(synthetic design - wears down to nubs
then pops off)
