i haven't ever worked a buick before. but if its the fuel system it could very likely be a weak fuel pump. but i have seen that happen when a car is low on oil. also you could have a plugged catalytic convertor. but you should notice your engine getting hot. could be you have miss firing cylinders too. there are a bunch of things that could cause it. id start by testing fuel pressure.
