I have a 2000 Buick park ave....while driving down the road 70mph the car quits no warning. It might start right back up or it might take up to 1 1/2 hrs to start again. We have had it to the dealer and they are unable to figure out what is going on with it. This has been going on for several months now. If you have any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.
