Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre

2000 Buick LeSabre stutters hard usually around 40mph

When my wifes 2000 LeSabre Custom gets up to about 40, or is crusing around 35 - 45 ( I can't say that it only does this at these speeds, it just seems more common at them), it will sometimes do this hard stutter thing. It just does it one time and may drive fine for a mile and do it again. It's like the engine dies for a split second, it just stops pulling for a split second and then starts back to pulling. Not sure if it's a transmition slip or the engine cutting out. Engine doesn't start to rev up for that split second. If it was a spark plug or a wire, I wouldn't think it would feel like the whole engine shut down. We have no problem starting the car and it never turns off. The check engine light has come on and off some and the auto parts store checked the code and said that the mass air flow sensor was on of the things listed under the code they got. One of the theorys was that the passing gear was slipping, the other was the sensor. Can you ohm out the sensors to see if they are good? I think my wife has said the the car has lurched forward while sitting at a stoplight when this first started but she hasn't said it again.

My 1996 buick lesabre thumps when accelerating over around 50 mph, usually when entering the freeway. Already replaced all 3 coil packs, fuel, oil and air filters. Is it worth it to replace the spark

I would want to know where the noise is coming from first.
If you had a cylinder not firing, you should get a check engine light with a trouble code stored in the computer.
It could be something hitting the exhaust pipes, a weak motor mount, or any number of other things.
Does it feel like it involves the fact you are at that speed, or the fact the engine is working very hard ?

2000 Buick Lesabre custom liscense plate bulb

kind of tricky, took me an hour to get it figured out, but you got to opend the trunk and take out the 10 or so 10mm nuts sticking out of the backside of the lid, then the whole solid piece where the lights are on the back will slide off, then you can change the bulbs above the license plate and put it all back together

Headlight buttons on a 2000 buick lesabre custom

Had this problem once. Sticky buttons. Just spray them with water and keep spraying till they come unstuck. Then take some card stock and make little 'tongue depressors - popsicle sticks' and use them to wipe out the surrounding areas of the buttons when they come loose. Seems like someone spilled pop on the dash and it dried. The sugar in the pop has stuck your buttons and they move like 'molasses in january' in Canada!!!
