Does my Buick LeSabre 1992 have chassis lubrication points?

lubrication points will be ball joints and "U" joints
I suggest that to enable you to successfully find all the points, that you have the local mechanic do the job and while he is at it to point out the locations to you so that next time you can do it your self

Power lock does not work on rear door

Power door lock mechanisms required periodic lubrication to work correctly. Without periodic lubrication, the mechanisms stick and, eventually, the lock solenoid will fail and require replacement. As a rule, the power lock mechanisms and power window regulators should be lubricated every two to three years.
Begin by removing the door panel and lubricating all points of the lock mechanism, including the solenoid plunger. If that does not correct the condition, look for broken parts and mechanical obstructions. Manually move the solenoid plunger to make sure that the mechanism is not seized. If the mechanism will not move, detach the mechanism from the actuator solenoid and see if the solenoid itself has seized.
Check that the lock solenoid is receiving 12V when the LOCK/UNLOCK button is actuated. If not, trace down the electrical fault. If the mechanism moves freely, and there is voltage at the connector when the switch is actuated, the solenoid has burned out and should be replaced.

Air suspension leveler not working

you will most probably find that the air compressor for the air suspension has dried inside the piston bore as the piston has a rubber "O" ring on it and once the lubricant dries out the piston won't slide up and down the bore.
The compressors are usually under one of the front guards

Rear suspension is not lifting up and 'check ride control' lights up. While driving, the rear drags and I bounce around. How much will cost to fix this problem?

you may find that the little air pump for the suspension has siezed, I had the same problem with my car and found that the pumps are only lightly lubricated with with a grease type lubricant but the lubricant eventually dries and the piston wont slide up and down the bore as the piston has rubber "O" rings on it and wont slide in a dry bore.
The pump for mine was located under the right side front guard.
I ended up removing the rear air shocks and replaced them with normal air shocks with the tyre type valve that you pump up at the garage, never had any more trouble after that.
Hope this helps

Have taken apart but cant get new or old pads back on now. not enough space and part that should move back to make space wont seems to be jammed or siezed. have tried letting out brake fluid but didnt...

  • To install: Front
  1. Compress the piston of the disc brake caliper.
  2. Install the brake pads and caliper assembly.
  3. Lubricate the guide pin. Tighten the guide pin to 16-23 ft. lbs. (22-31 Nm).

  1. Pull out the pad springs and then remove the pads and shims.

To install:

  1. Clean the piston end of the caliper body and the area around the pin holes. Be careful not to get oil on the rotor.
  2. Carefully turn the piston clockwise back into the caliper body (this can be done with a pair of needle nose pliers). Take care not to damage the piston boot.
  3. Coat the pad contact area on the mounting support with a silicone based grease.
A special tool is available to rotate the caliper piston


Do not press the piston into the bore as performed on the front disc brakes. Due to the parking brake mechanism, the caliper piston must be turned into the bore.

V6 engine failure

if heads were warped, then yes coolant got into the cylinder/s . so there is your water poured into engine. a bent piston rod cannot be diagnosed, it must be seen. a would run slick 50 into this engine.

Out timing

Did the belt break all together so the engine is not running? Or is it still running just jumped timing a few points? Timing belts should be replaced every 30,000 to 40,000 miles to make sure they are up to tollerances. When they do break to the point of shearing off all the nubs from the belt then it usually causes internal engine damage. The cam stops turning and the crank keeps going making the pistons tap against the intake and exhaust valves in the head. In some cases they have even punched holes in the piston because it happened while driving down the freeway at high engine speeds. If you are lucky you may have a vehicle that had pistons with depressions in them to afford clearance for the valves and they didn't get damaged. When you install the new belt and have it properly aligned, before putting anything else back on the engine, do a compression check of the engine to see if the valves did get dammaged. If the compression is off by more that 10% between all the cylinders then you may have a bent valve or two and you will need to have the cylinder head redone also. If the vehicle is some what still running then you may be alright and only have to replace the belt only and retime the engine. Good Luck, RAC

2002 hse freelander sunroof motor buzzing at certain points

My sunroof has played up as well and it is all down to lack of use. The lubrication LR use for the guides and the drive mechanism appears to harden over time causing the mechanism not to work correctly. There is a light oil available from LR to lubricate things but in my case the lubrication already there was like a grease so after opening the roof and then protecting everything with cloths, I applied WD40 through its nozzle to the sliders and the spiral drive mechanism and then operated the sunroof a large number of times giving it a manual helping hand. Eventually it worked ok.

Passenger seat stuck in lying down position.

Use some penetrating lubricant on all pivot points and levers around the recline mechanism, and let the lubricant sit overnight. In the morning, try to work the recline mechanism free. (The vehicle is quite old at this point, and likely parts in the interior need lubrication. These parts should be lubricated annually.)

Try checking your ground wires and make sure they are not dangling from a few thin copper strands. Also check to see that the wires have a solid connection to the contact points" corrosion, rust, poor or weak connections can cause a weak spark within your distributor. I had a 1989 suzuki swift that was in the shop for 2 months and after hours of research and 300.00 dollars in it could be this it could be that, I went down to thouroughly inspect all of my wiring harnesess and found one that was dangling by a few strands of copper wires. I crimped on a new connector, bolted the harness back onto the intake manifold, turned the engine over and the engine started immediatly! Wish I would had done it sooner! This was after I replaced the distributor, full tune up cap,rotor,plugs,wires and cleaning the fuel injectors. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!
