Question about 2004 Buick LeSabre
How many hours to r&r a transmission in a 2004 buick lesabre
I changed one a month ago at home. Took me about 13 hours but I did not have a lift. I had some other work to do in that time so the actual time could be as little as maybe 11 hours. Have to drop sub frame and support engine with support tool placed across strut towers. Support front of car high on jack stands. Blocked rear wheels.
Disconnect battery. Remove air intake hose and filter box, starter, electrical connections to tranny, linkage, remove brake calipers, separate lower ball joints and the axles. I made a wood plate affixed to a floor pipe flange and short pipe inserted into a floor jack to lower and raise the tranny. (Balancing it was much easier that way.)
Difficult to reach tranny bolt accessible only from pass side wheel well across back of engine! Look for it!
Flush out old tranny fluid from radiator so as not to contaminate new tranny.

I just Replaced a Low Beam Light bulb on a 2005 Buick La Sabre.
If You use a Metric socket and Remove the Two Silver bolts Attaching the headlight Assemble onto the metal surrounding the the lamp assembly it comes out to the front. This makes it much easier to access the bulb. Twist it counerclockwise & it comes out by pulling gently on the bulb. Then by realeasing a tab that is the socket holder bulb can be removed & replaced with a New #9006 low beam halogen light bulb. Wrap a Paper towel around the bulb & do NOT touch it with your bare hand as this wiil ruin a halogen bulb,

No it's not have your engine check for oil leaks, also have then do a wet and dry cylinder compression test this will let you know if you are burning oil, also have them check the spark plug's.Hope this was helpful.
