And I just changed the fuel filter and it still does the same thing somebody​ please tell me I'm a girl that no anything about cars


I had a similar Buick, and it could be the crankshaft positioning Sensor, or the camshaft positioning sensor. My car died while driving....but I could shift to neutral...keep rolling, and restart while still rolling. That takes quickness, for when your car dies, its power steering is also difficult.

I would also check your battery cables, a simple and no cost item. My car a loose cable, and the car would die as well. That was a tough problem to locate....but simple to clean and tighten down. Car ran well after that. Hope this helps

Do you think it could be the fuel pump
