1997 Buick Lesabre, 95,000 miles

Well maintained, oil warning lite came on, engine stopped soom after. Car towed to GM garage, no codes found, oil levels fine, engine runs fine again, but who can trust it? Had problem with traction control coming on that was fixed and apparently a glitch in computer module. Have you head of the oil lite situation?

Thanks.

Usually comes on when you have to much/to little oil, or it needs to be changed, with the oil filter.. that should be the only reasons for it coming on.

I have a 1998 Buick LaSabre with 80,000 original miles. Has always been maintenanced. Problem: At a stop light, died. Had it towed home. Engine is locked up! How could this have happened???


oil pump couild've failed,allowing no oil pressure,or bearing could've spun and threw a rod bearing,usually when this happens there is some fair warnings,like oil light/gauge droping pressure or a loud knocking noise.if you didn't experience any of these I would like to know also.

How many miles does an 1997 Buick Lesabre usually last?


Gm says a 3800 engine should last ove 400,000 miles with normal service. This engine for 97 will probably need a new plastic intake manifold one day. They will leak coolant into the combustion chamber and some un-educated mechanics will tell you that it needs head gaskets as they don't have a head gasket problem. The oil pan may leak on this car too, replace it with a fel-pro perma dry gasket and it will stop it. Mine has 297,000+ miles on it.

mybe nothing, you could replace oil & filter, gas if you can, as gas gets old setting that long, check to see if it had antifreez, and replace. with only 16,000 miles and in a grage tires and hoses should still be ok. look to see if there apears to be any cracks, also the belts.

Given the amount of electronic's on your vehicle , an control modules , have a full vehicle scan done . Not at a parts , thier diagnostic tool will not check BCM -body control module , Instrument cluster , air bag module codes . Your vehicle maybe have communication problem between modules .

Hi! If it seems to be much worse in the rain, why don't you have a mechanic test your engine for codes and functions after he rinses your engine down with water? Water won't hurt your engine. Good luck! Jack
