Sputtering Engin on 2000 Buick Lesabre


O2 Sensors only reads Oxygen Content in Exhaust
Converter,so forget that persons advice in the future

The O2 Sensor info is for adjusting fuel trim or injector
pulse timing,not your problem

You change front upstream O2 sensors at 100,000
miles, as preventative maintenance

Check Fuel Pressure at motor & pump maybe failing
as well,doesn't hold pressure thus takes too long to start

Clean the Air Idle Valve on throttle body & it won't shut off
at stops

My 2000 buick lesabre want start fuel pump comes on when i turn the key i have spark at the coils.checked all fuses. Changed fuel filter but car still won't start its trying to start but just...


It could be the fuel pump. Sometimes you can hear them engage, but they are not pushing enough fuel pressure to run the car. This can be checked.

Random misfire on 99 Buick LaSabre


random misfire can be due to bad sparkplug wires or a vacuum leak at the intake, there are many thing that can cause a random misfire even low fuel pressure, and last would be dirty injectors. i would start by having the fuel pressure checked and then having the injectors cleaned.

Can you drive a 1994 Buick Lesabre with an unplugged camshaft sensor


If it will start, you can drive it. Some computers will not fire the injectors without a signal from the cam sensor, but many will default to data from the crankshaft sensor when the cam sensor fails. This may result in reduced fuel mileage, but will not hurt the car. Basically, the injectors are spraying at a less optimal moment. OK?

Wont start\good fuel pressure\good spark


Then the fuel injectors are not pulsing,replace the crankshaft sensor,it controls the spark,but also the pulse for the injectors.

My 2000 Buick lesabre cuts off while driving


Your fuel pump might be going bad. The reason why it cuts off is the fuel pump is pumping just enough to run it for a x amount of time that's why it shuts off but while it's off the pump is pumping fuel into the lines. If it's not the fuel pump then it might be your injectors.

2000 buick lesabre stall after starting or after running for 30 minutes


I have a 1996 Lesabre. I had a similar problem that slowly got worse. I brought it to two different mechanics that did diagnostic checks and could only "suggest" what to replace to fix the problem. Their problem was that it wouldnt stall out while they had the mv. After replacing a bunch of sensors and the fuel pump/ filter, I solved the problem by replacing the Crank Sensor. Its located behind the lower crank pulley on the 3.8 lt motor. Hope this helps!
