Wow, thats going to be a sticky situation.
I would first let the father-in-law know what happened in case the car has some serious damage. You may need to sell it back to him.
It could be a sticky thermostat, failed water pump, or various other causes. Even a blown head gasket.

SOURCE: 2000 buick lesabre shuts down while driving

Similar problem with 1997 Buick. Intermittently the car would quit. The problem was corrosion on the battery terminals. A new battery solved the problem.

94 buick lesabre 3800 engine, stalls after 10 mile drive and will not start till cools. replaced TPS, Fuel pumpand filter, cam sensor, crank sensor, and ignition control module.

next time it won't run after it heats up, spray or pour water in crank sensor and see if it will start. I have seen new crank sensors go bad.

1998 Buick LeSabre. This car started to act up while driving home, and when I went to leave again it would not start. Family thinks the engines no good, I think It could be a fuse or a computer? Could...

Sounds like to me your Fuel Pump might have quit on you. You would need to check Fuel Pressure with the proper testing equipment but a fast way if you are CAREFUL spray a little bit of carb cleaner while someone is cranking the car into the boot where the air filter is , if this VEHICLE has a Mass Air Flow sensor AVOID spraying into it or you will damage it. find another area to add this spray and see if it starts up.

Gas pedal sticking. requires more than normal pressure until car starts moving

I had same problem on my 2004 lesabre, I waited until it was stuck and opened the hood and pulled on the throttle by hand very easily and could feel it sticking there, so I sprayed carb cleaner on the springs and around and through them. This loosened it up right away and have not had any trouble since, I did not spray anything into the throttle body, Good luck

Check the fuse box and replace the gauge fuse if it's bad, Keep me posted if the fuse is good and we can move to the nest step, and that would be a possible wire harness problem on the instrument panel, and does the transmission shift like it should all the way to over drive (OD)?? Good luck
