You need to know if the problem is the cable or a dirty throttle plate.
I would disconnect the cable and check the throttle plate first. It may need to be cleaned.

SOURCE: gas guage shows full

I had the same problem and to fix it I replaced the sending unit which is in the gas tank mounted on the side of the fuel pump assembly. You get to it through the trunk by remmoving the matt aand the cover plate up in the right corner of trunk.

SOURCE: my gas pedal is sticking

Remove the plastic shroud which covers the engine. This can easily be done by unscrewing the oil fill spout (the 3-inch extension onto which the oil filler cap fits) by unscrewing it a half turn and lifting it out. This exposes the fuel injector body and mechanism.

Remove the rubber boot between the air box and the fuel injector body, then locate the "screen" which covers the intake. The screen should be held on by a "C" shaped ring, remove this then work the screen out. It's a little tricky to get out but it's not impossible. Spray some WD-40 (or other lubricant) on the butterfly shaft bushings and this should fix your problem.

1995 Buick LeSabre 3.8 Liter Wont start unless I push down on gas pedal like it wants more gas, Why? Runs OK when running

Possibly a bad or dirty Idle Air Control motor. The engine computer controls the operation of this motor to control idle speed. A pintle on the motor extends and retracts, according to signal from the computer. The pintle controls an air passage below it to give or take away air during idle -when the throttle shaft is closed, no air will get into the engine through the throttle body except through the idle air passage . The IAC motor or valve is on the throttle body, with a 4 wire connector. Take it off and look for carbon or coking deposits around the valve's pintle, and in the air passage beneath it. With the idle valve off, plug the connector back on it, then watch the pintle as the key is turned to on. If there is no movement whatsoever, the motor is probably bad.

I have also heard that a bad coolant temperature sensor can cause such a hard start. If the computer does not know the engine is cold, it won't put enough gas into the cylinders for easy starts. The engine needs more gas to start and run when cold.

I have a 2003 buick lasabre, brake lights stay on include back window light

Most likely the brake light switch is sticking on. This switch is mounted on the brake pedal arm about six inches above the foot pedal, between the arm and the push rod that goes into the master cylinder.
Get a new switch at the auto parts store, then pull the spring clip and slide the old switch off. disconnect the wires, replace the switch and put the spring clip back into place.
If you don't want to replace it yourself, it should be an inexpensive repair (I'd guess under $100). Call around for prices.

Buick LeSaber ignition will not turn off.

There is a pin on the ignition switch you can press that will release the switch for you to turn and pull out.

Changed spark plugs in 97 buick lasabre and now it cranks and runs, but white smoke coming out. Is that blown head gaskets? Does it have anything to do with the fuel pump my mechanic put on 3 weeks ago???

You need to check the oil with the dipstick (wipe in down a few times) to see if it looks like a chockalate milk shake. If coolent has made its way into the oil you have blown head gasket. The fuel pump which is usually in the gas tank in most gm vehicles would not cause white smoke, if it failed you car would not start because your engine would not get any gas to the injectors

Ever find out what to do with this? I'm running into the same problem and see multiple refrences to it, but not much for follow up on what fixed it. I pulled the fuse for mine, but it kills the trunk release and automatic I'm not a big fan of that.

I have a 89 buick park avenue ultra. my

the transmission breaking apart but in a really slow way. There's not a thing that can be done to save it. It's going to someday give out. You can prolong it by not punching on the pedal to test it. just drive it normally and DON"T get the trans oil change. Just leave it alone... I own 89 P/Ave 156,000 original owner. Same thing happened to my car and picked up a used trans at junk yard and my mechanic installed it and runs like a baby at half the price(700.00). If you go to junk yards half of the park ave are because of trans. Good luck
