Check each U joint, if they have been replaced, they have a grease insert. Then ball joints on front. Then steering componetns. Pitman arm, idler arm, tie rods, etc. Some models come factory with grease serts but not all. Go through those three areas and you'll find all of them.

There are no grease fittings on your Buick. Most manufactures started using sealed joints in the early to mid 90s. If a joint is making noise it will have to be replaced.

Hello! Welcome to FIxYa. Please allow us to assist you.

To answer your question...
No. It is not worth it to pay extra for the chassis lubrication, because there are no places to lubricate.

Everything in the suspension on your vehicle is sealed. There are no grease fittings anywhere to lubricate.

They are doing nothing more for you, other than trying to take your money. Don't let them. In fact, seeing that they are willing to sell you a fake service, I would take my business elsewhere, if I were you.

Thanks for coming to FixYa, and asking for the true story today. We hope that we have helped you out, and saved you some money in the process.

Does my Buick LeSabre 1992 have chassis lubrication points?


lubrication points will be ball joints and "U" joints
I suggest that to enable you to successfully find all the points, that you have the local mechanic do the job and while he is at it to point out the locations to you so that next time you can do it your self

In the engine: 10w30 or 10w40 if you live in a desert area with mild winters. And for zert fitting type lube points, I'd use a premium grade grease chassis lubricant.
