ignition system, EGR valve, gas filter...those are the most common issues that result in sluggish performance.

I've got a '93 Buick as well. One weak link in those cars was the Mass Airflow Sensor. If that's the problem, you can usually get one from a junkyard or ebay for $30-$50. They're easy to replace too. But first check air filter, fuel filter, plug wires and spark plugs.

I've got about 190K miles on mine, and it still get 32 mpg highway, and drives like a dream. It's not as sexy as my Corvette, or as tough as my deisel 4x4, but it's the best daily driver EVER.

You might want to post a forum topic listing everything that's wrong with this, and ask advice along the lines of: scrap it, sell it, fix it?

If you do the Forum topic, list everything that's wrong with it, ask for advice on a fix. It'll stick around a bit longer than these questions, but do package the whole deal so that people know exactly what you've got.

Spark plugs may need to be changed. Vacuum hose might be loose. Air cleaner might be dirty. Exhaust system might be plugged. fuel filter might be plugged. Ignition system might be faulty. Parking break might be stuck. Transmission might be slipping. Tires might be under inflated. Might be using cheap gas. Fuel pump might be weak.

Not at all. I'm just saying that there are many things that could make a car act as you described. Without putting tools on the car it is very hard to diagnose what the problem might be. If it is a vacuum leak it might be as simple as reattaching the hose at no cost. If it's the trans it might cost as much as $2500. The point is you need a friend who is a mechanic and you can talk him/her into looking at your car, take it to the shop or better if you have time take a class at the local community college on car repair and do it yourself.
