Question about 1988 Buick LeSabre

2 Answers

I have a 1995 Buick Lasabre. It's been dieing

I have a 1995 Buick Lasabre. It's been dieing going down the road. It has new plugs and wires we checked the feul pump and replaced the filters and hooked it up to a dianostic computer but it didn't put out any codes because it wasn't acting up at the time. Im going along just fine then with no warning it dies. No sputtering just like I turned the key off. It always starts right back up but with our curvey roads its dangerous.

    Also the EGR valve with get carbon under the seat and wont close off and cause it to **** air and cause it to die when you take your foot off the gas.

    We replaced the Crank Sensor but our '95 LeSabre still dies on the road.

    Change your ECM, I have 1 95 lesabre it was doing the same thing. Basically your control module is failing after I changed mine the problem went away. If you do this the dealer must program it first or it will not work properly.

Wire going down to crank sensor has bare spot, bumps against engine block and ECM sees problem and shuts down you can restart right away, because wire goes away from block.

Kidspeedy hopefully buick lasabre that runs rough

I also had a misfire, but on a 4cyl. At speed it was great-getting there? so yes do the tune up of plugs and wires. You only have one cyl out of six laying down on you, might not even be hardly noticable.

Buick shakes, guns then almost stops

this sounds very much like a torque converter/transmission issue. i will assume the transmission dial you're speaking of is the tachometer? which measures engine revolutions per minute. to confirm, one could possibly unplug 4-wire connector on transmission near radiator and test drive. this keeps the transmission from going into torque converter lock-up.
