Question about 2003 Buick LeSabre
Just Bought a 2003 Buick Lesabre. Soon as I got home with it I noticed there was a loud ticking noise under the hood. Seller just changed oil so oil is clean. Is this an expensive problem with the engine? Could it be thr hydraulic valve lifters? What might be an approximate cost to repair? The car has 88,000 miles on it. He said he would fix it or give me my money back! Not sure what I should do! Would you please advise?
I would take it back. If camshaft is damaged, it will be expensive fix. Lifters going bad at 88k indicates neglect.

SOURCE: CHECK ENGINE BULB REPLACEMENT
You have to take all the facia off the dash - and then pull the dash cluster out. It is a long hard job for a light bulb. When you take the dash out don't forget to undo the speedometer wire and then the wire plugs on the left and right upper sides of the dash unit.

Yes there are struts on the front and shocks on the back. 2 of each. They are around $50-100 for the fronts. $30-100 for the rears depending if the car has air ride or not.

Had same kind of problem on my '96 with 254,000 miles only it finally got to where it was not driveable at any speed. Ended up being the fuel pump in the gas tank. You've gotta drop the tank to get to it. You'll need to make sure you clean the accumulated rust and other crud out of the tank. Suggest replacing the pump AND the screen AND the fuel filter while you are at it. All together, the parts ran me about $160.

Remove the sight shield from the fuel rail. (it's the large plastic shield that dresses up the engine) As you stand in front of the car the alternator is located on rear left side. In front of it is an electrical connector to the MAP sensor. Remove it. Press the PCV valve cover down and rotate it 1/4 turn counterclockwise. It is actully on the intake manifold. Lift the cover, the upper O-ring and the spring from the housing. Remove the pcv valve and the lower O-ring from the intake manifold.
