Question about 1997 Buick LeSabre
I have a Buick Lesabre Limited 1998. When I turn the key in the ignition it cranks but doesn't start. I was told the problem is either ignition or fuel pump. How much do ignitions go for for my car?? I'm a woman and I don't want to be taken advantage of when I go see a mechanic. I looked into the recall for my car. It looks like there was a recall on the fuel pumps and I never had that replaced so hopefully that's the problem. Does anyone know what else it can possibly be?
P.S. Can't be the battery lights work, radio...etc.
The best way to check if it is the fuel pump is to buy some starting spray at AutoZone, etc... and take off your air cleaner line. Spray the starting spray A LIBERAL AMOUNT into the Throttle Body and try to start the car. If it starts and runs for a second then dies, it is most definately your fuel pump. This is an easy check to do yourself and will sameyou diagnostic time and $$$. Try it and post back what you find!
