I had this problem. It turned out to be the fuel pump. Extremely expensive repair by Buick. The pump alone is over $300. My last GM ever.

2000 Buick Lesabre hard start

Try depressing the gas pedal once before cranking. If it fires right up then replace the fuel filter. If not then you may need to replace the cam sensor.

It doesn't sound like an ignition module or crankshaft sensor because normally problems with either would result in a no start condition. My first thought is a loose or dirty connection in the wiring that causes an intermittent lack of fuel or ignition.

2001 impala starts and dies It usually starts the second time and stays running. also stalls intermittently while going down the road. have replaced mass air flow sensor, crank sensor, removed throttle...

this sounds like a fuel issue, sometimes can be difficult to diagnose because its obviously being intermittant. whether its a fuel pressure regulator or the pump itself, i feel the most likely cause is the pump itself losing prime and thats why you have to try 2 times or more to crank because you are creating pressure from the fuel tank everytime you try to crank, this would also be a possibility as to the shut off if its getting hot than shutting down and than your able to start it back up. i would put a fuel pressure gauge on the vehicle and watch my fuel pressure readings to make sure they are staying true. if the fuel pump checks out than it will be an ignition or computer issue, i hope this helps

My 1994 buick stalls only in drive what is this

Look at the simple stuff first such as spark and fuel pressure. Make sure all of the normal tune up items are taken care of such as plugs, wires, fuel filter, etc. Look at the fuel pressure and make sure that is up to spec. Also make sure the check engine light isn't on and there aren't any trouble codes stored.

If everything with the fuel system looks ok then I would look at possibly an intermittent problem with either the camshaft position sensor or the crankshaft position sensor. The Cam sensor should be located on the lower right of the engine, above the crank pulley.

The Crank sensor should be located behind the right side of the crank pulley. There could be an issue with the wiring for either sensor as well that is causing the vehicle to intermittently shut off.

Please donot forget to rate and accept my answer...

97 LaSabre won't start, will shut off when runnin, has had fuel pump replaced 3 times, and battery terminals are good. Any ideas?

The crank sensor will sometimes fail when the car gets hot. I have ran some of these cars before until they cut off. I sprayed come water on the crank sensor and the car restarted. Replaced crank sensor and the car did not come back again for that problem again.

Changed spark plugs in 97 buick lasabre and now it cranks and runs, but white smoke coming out. Is that blown head gaskets? Does it have anything to do with the fuel pump my mechanic put on 3 weeks ago???

You need to check the oil with the dipstick (wipe in down a few times) to see if it looks like a chockalate milk shake. If coolent has made its way into the oil you have blown head gasket. The fuel pump which is usually in the gas tank in most gm vehicles would not cause white smoke, if it failed you car would not start because your engine would not get any gas to the injectors
