Your going to need a new battery. This is the simplest fix for the issue. I would also recommend a block heater. Certain models of these basically get mounted inline with your coolant hoses and they constantly heat and circulate your antifreeze so your car is instantly warm when you start it. They do have to be plugged into an electrical outlet but they are worth it in very cold weather.

Just don't forget to unplug them before you leave with the car :)

But for now sounds like the only thing you really need is a new battery. As much as i hate to say it walmart has some pretty good deals on batteries and they usually don't charge to put them in. Worth it especially when its cold.

1994 Buick Lesabre calls for a 160 or 180 degree thermostat


that is the opening temperature for the thermostat
it opens at 160 degrees which is good for hot weather operation or another with 180 degrees which is good for cold weather operations
The differences is 160 opens sooner to start coolant circulation to keep operating temperature low where the 180 keeps shut and allows the operating temperature to rise up as soon as it open the cold air will quickly cool the coolant.

97 buick lesabre cold weather starts


Well you could hook up a battery charger. Or if you have another vehicle and jumper cable you could try to jump it. If it starts with the jump then it is most liklely your battery.

I used the decision that it is real cold

My 97 buick runs cold stalls when hot wont start for 1 hour


Sounds like it is fuel related. Ck fuel pressure to be sure. Also ck the pressure regulator on the fuel rail, It is a small metal cylinder at the end of the fuel rail to ck pull to vacumn line off (hot not running after shutting the engine off). If there is fuel in the vacumn line it is bad. Good luck

Car shuts down while driving


It is very likely the part that is giving you the problem is a Crankshaft Position Sensor, they go open circuit when they get hot, then after it cools it becomes a good circuit again, this is very frustrating, had the same issue with my Buick a few years ago, replaced the coils and the ignition module at a cost of hundreds, DID NOT CHANGE A THING, the crank sensor fixed the problem and was $30.00 from Buick.
