Question about 1999 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

99 Buick La Sabre-accelrating problem-fuel injectors?

Car was overheating and had a coolent leak. Recently had the Radiator serviced and the coolent leak fixed. Today it felt like it would push and pull when I stepped on the accelerator. I assumed it might be the fuel injectors. The needle was in the normal mark, in the temperature gage. But when I would stop at a stop lights this morning the car was shaking a bit.

When i got to work the Temp needle shot up really high and i can hear the radiator hissing and bubbling. Im not sure whats going on.

    Is the coolant bottle full? Is the radiator fan working? If so it may be an erraticly sticking thermostat.

It sound as though the car is overheating and maybe the mechanic did not properly blled the system to expel the air.
Air does not heat or cool in a pressurized environment and will read ok on the temp guage.Basically the air is plugging the circulation at the senders spot.
Call the repair shop and ask if it was properly bled.

Imy 98 buick is overheating the water comes out from the pasenger side inside da car..right under the glove box

That is where your Heater core is located. Its like a little radiater that your vents blow thru to get hot air for heating your interior. If thats leaking, its not gunna stop. Take this car in right away before you run your coolent dry and trash your car.

I have a 1997 Buick Regal and it has a problem with keeping the engine cool. I used to always just put coolant or water in the reservoir and that would work and some of the water would leak out after I had...

this is due to the following reasons
1. the fan colong the radiator is not fuctioning properly so please check it amd service if not properly working.
2.the radiator may have chocks which os preventing the coolent to cool the engine properly. that is rate of heat exchanging is reduced.

1997 buick le sabre

its the electrical connection at he fuel pump,if this is ok ask if they replaced the strainer on your fuel pump,your fuel pump is inside your gas tank ,you have to drop the tank to service,most fuel pumps are not warrantied if you dont change the strainer,when your car shuts off the sediment on the strainer falls back into the tank,but when you run your car and it sucks up the gas thru the strainer to the pump it clogs the strainer and the fuel pump cant pump,you shoiuld find out if they changed this because your forcing your fuel pump to work harder,was it a new fuel tank or used one that they put in
