Question about Buick Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My 1996 Buick LeSabre won't start. It's getting gas- has good spark. When it turns over it is real slow then acts like battery is dead. Have new battery and starter. I am at a loss.

Check voltage at battery while starting. If good, check with headlights on. If headlights dim, suspect bad battery cables or excessive friction in engine. If not,check voltage at starter.

2000 lesabre wont start. Battery is good. Engine cranks but won't turn over.


You need to find out whether it is getting gas and spark. To check the gas, depress the button in the middle of the Schraeder valve on the fuel rail. Some gas should spurt out under pressure. Still, the injectors might not be getting a signal, but I think the check engine light should tell you if that isn't working. To check the spark, disconnect one spark plug wire and provide a gap to ground where you can see it in a dimply lit place. You should be able to see a spark. Test those two things. The coils and igniter seem to go bad together.

LeSabre won't start...please suggest...


To check fuel supply, spray carb cleaner into air inlet while cranking. If there is no fuel, engine will start for a second on what you sprayed. if nothing, likely either there is enough fuel and plugs are already wet, or there is another problem. (perhaps contaminated fuel?)
