Question about 2003 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

2003 Buick LeSabre has not been starting in the extreme cold.

It will make an initial couple turns of the engine and then seems to lose power and not be able to turn over. Then there is some clunking as I continue to try and get it started. Any thoughts?

Check EGR valve to make sure their isn't a piece of carbon stuck under valve seat. Also you need to check exhaust back pressure to make sure you don't have a converter pluged.

2003 Buick Lesabre Custom Need to change the fuel filter, but cannot find the fuel pump relay to remove the fuel pressure. Relays under the hood do not list one for the fuel pump. Any idea?


You can release the fuel pressure at the fuel service port on top of the engine. Be sure the engine is cold and you hold a good rag under it. No need to remove relay if key is off.

2000 LeSabre starts but runs very rough and stalls. After


Sounds like the plugs are not firing hot enough on initial start-up. Try a quick spark plug change, and clean throttle body. The gas being injected, isn't being burned fast enough by the plugs, which causes the car to have a hard start-up. You may try a higher octane gas or Lucas injector cleaner with your usual octane rating. Lucas comes in a very small bottle, and works very well in my opinion.

Have you changed your fuel filter lately? It may need it. If you turn ignition on & wait a min.the fuel will pass the filter & then the car will start but it will stall the moment the demand for fuel surpasses delivery rate due to a blocking filter. Good luck!

May be your engine needs overhauling with new rings etc. It is a 16 year old car after all. Does it leave black soot if you accelerate when loaded? Or put a finger in the silencer (when it is cold) and see of it turns out black with oily soot.
