Question about 2001 Buick LeSabre

Service engine light keeps coming back after repairs with the same code

I have a 2001 Buick LeSabre. My service engine light came on and I took it to the shop to find out the problem. I was told I needed to replace the catalytic converter. I had it replaced at a different shop (that was cheaper) and after a while my light came back on. I then had both O2 sensors replaced and the light came back on again. Is there something else that could be related to that same code?

    WELL WITHOUT ALL THE TROUBLE CODES YOU HAVE BASED THESE REPAIRS ON I CAN'T REALLY BEGIN TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON. DID U REPLACE THE CATALYTIC MONITORS? WAS THIS A FACTORY CATALYTIC CONVERTER? AFTERMARKET ONES CAUSE THIS PROBLEM. MANY TIMES.

Did the shop that first worked on it properly reset the code to zero? The light will keep coming on no matter what repairs you do unless the code is properly reset.

Service engine soon light came on, I took it to get it checked out, they said it was the gas cap not sealing properly, got a new gas cap, the light went out, it has only been a few hours, it is on aga


there is, unhook the battery let the car set for an hour and re hook it. but i can tell you it will come back on. the reason they told you it was a gas cap is the code told them it was an evap/purge system problem. this is very commonly the gas cap. but in your case it might not be as the light came back on.

Ok here we go again 2000 buick lesabre . driving down road service engine light comes shortly after car stops dead. wait a few minutes usually starts back up light might go out get home fine. everyone is...


What you need to do is have the code checked for the service engine soon light.This will help in diagnosing what could be causing the vehicle to stop dead.By this I am assuming you mean it will stall.Auto Zone and some other parts stores will check the code for you for free.But the diagnosing will still need to be done to see what is causing the light to come on and make the car stall.Sometimes you may need a scan tool and a multi meter to help find the problem.Which means you may have to go to a repair shop.Hope this has helped you.Good luck.

I have a 2000 buick lesabre. The fix engine soon


It NEVER was the camshaft sensor! Unless, you've removed the engine lately, which I doubt.
RUN to Advance Auto Parts and buy a can of "SeaFoam" and add to your gas tank per instructions...drive at least 100 miles and the problem should go away...IF it doesn't you'll have to replace the O2 sensors in the exhaust system...Any good mechanic should be able to do this for much less $$ than the dealership DO NOT go to the dealer for repairs!
Good Luck

unhook the battery for ten minutes and hook it back up... that will clear the code... if your stereo requires a code make sure you know it first.
