    I took my car in and the plugs were fine. It ened up being the mass airflow sensor in the turn of $300.00 for parts and labor. He said this was the 3rd Buick this went on the the past month-a common problem. Thought I would post this for an FYI and thanks for the feedback, this is a great site to use.

Sounds like you have a bad plug or plug wire will act up worse when wet if it is plug wires

Why is my 2001 Buick lesabre only getting 13.5 miles per gallon in the city

it could be several things. poor quality gas, a weak thermostat indicating to the computer the engine is colder than it is because it opens too soon. it could be a bad temp sensor saying the same thing to the computer so the computer allows more fuel. you may need a tune-up, it could be the way the car is driven, jump start from lights or lead foot.

My 2001 Buick lesabre is jumping a little when I put it into gear n when I hit the gas? Any suggestions on what it could possibly be...

Jumping like a hard shift? I learned a hard lesson from this same symptom. I thought it was the transmission going out on me... it wasn't. Check your engine mounts for damage first. If the car jumps while driving too, check your MAF (mass airflow sensor) for some reason it jacks with the transmission.

2001 Buick Lesabre missing very badly while beginning to move from a stopped position or while in motion you attempt to accellerate quickly. Almost seems as if the motor looses all power (not reving up)...

May be a upper intake starting to go bad. They will leak coolant that gets into the combustion chamber causing a miss. Check for low coolant. If not, you may get the coils tested as one of those may be going bad.

Buick lesabra 2001 dies while driving, voltage light comes on.

hello, you may need to have engine tuned up, have choke checked out, usually all the lights,bells and whistles will come on after it dies.because you are having to start engine again, when first starting engine, see what all lights comes on, then when engine dies it should be the same lights coming on when first starting engine, thats pretty normal ,have all filters checked out like gas filter, air filter etc

My 1995 buick lesabre check engine light is on

Take it to a real mechanic, not the phoney physics at the zone. The speed sensor will not respond if the car is not moving. May be an air flow sensor. They will go bad if it has ever been wet. They can be checked with a scan tool.
