I seriously doubt that. I don't remember any such 10-minute countdown in the '93 manual, and besides, a 10-minute window of opportunity wouldn't make much sense to the average driver unless there was some way of communicating to him or her that a countdown had begun and he'd better find a place to pull over. (The Britney Spears tune on the stereo suddenly stops, and a deep, James-Earl-Jones voice comes out of the speakers: "ATTENTION BONNEVILLE DRIVER: THIS IS YOUR CAR SPEAKING. YOU HAVE TEN MINUTES TO FINISH DRIVING BEFORE THE CAR WILL BE SHUT DOWN. THIS WILL BE YOUR ONLY WARNING. HAVE A NICE DAY, AND PLEASE CONSIDER PONTIAC FOR YOUR NEXT CAR PURCHASE.")

If the connection through the resistor pellet of the key is lost for a full uninterrupted 60 seconds while driving, the Security light will illuminate, but the car won't stop. If the connection is lost before the car is started, it won't start, or even crank over, and the Security light will illuminate for three minutes before you can try again.

Actually this thread was 'not' hijacked at all, I have been going thru this site page by page by page etc, trying to find info from another user that had similar problems like myself to try to learn from it. Finally found this one, sounded alot like my problem but not exactly, I posted my problem to see if anyone had any helpful input. Anyone reading it could see by my personal info I'm not the original poster of this thread, and I never tried to give that impression, I thought that this was a public post.

Yes, absolutely. You're lookin' at one of the top thread hijackers here (besides Jim and Hails... ) I think I was just trying to be too helpful, as it sounded as if Will thought that you were aaahn, or something like that...I'll shut up now...

Hey, no problem, I just didn't want people to think I was being dishonest or just screwing around on here, and nobody help me!! I'm just looking for some help in trying to determine whether this car I'm looking at is a lemon that should be run from, or whether it'* just something minor, or NOT major!!

Wow Joey. I have been reading through all of these post from here and other sites for days trying to find someone with the simaliar problem also. You are going through the exact same thing as i am, with one exception. If I give it too much gas it will stall out. It is acting like it maybe is not getting enough air when I give it gas. My car has stumped the only american shop around me and I am getting so frustrated with this that I am thinking of selling it. About the 10 minute delay... I have not read anything about that. Also I am not getting a SES light.

My guess is it is the same thing that was fixed by a new fuel pump and tank in my parents car. It is a 1992 Buick Park Avenue Ultra (supercharged 3800) and that is very common in the 1992'*. I had the same problem in my 1992 SE. Good way to tell is by how full your tank is. In the case of my parents 1992 Park Avenue it didn't matter if it was full or empty. Reason is due to the baffles in the tank falling apart and over the years the pum pstarts to get worn and once the baffles start falling apart they don't direct the gas towards the pump anymore causing inadequete or in some cases no gas to reach the pump.
Also the reason it takes 10 minutes (another guess) is that it that after that much time running and heating up the pump reaches the point where it is overheating and causes a drop in the voltage through it and it "suffocates" or develops "asthma".

Good luck.

Default re: fuel tank and pump

It has a new fuel tank on it, I don't know about the fuel pump though. If that is shot, that would contribute, but when you slowly increase the throttle under the hood, it will wind right up, 3000-4000 rpms, smooth and strong, sounds fine. Giving it shots of gas don't work, and trying to drive in gear, both cause it to spit and sputter, gag, almost stall, and if you mat it, it won't rev beyond 1500-2000 rpms and struggles alot not to stall. The motor and supercharger sound fine, it really sounds like something electrical or in the delivery system. I'm baffeld and don't want to buy it thinking it'* something minor and it turn out to be major!!!

Code 32 doesn't exist. See if the mechanic can check his records again.

And also fuel problems have plagued the 92s, but most people experience the car losing power around long turns.
