SOURCE: windows wont go up and down

Hi
I had the same problem with my 2001 LeSabre rear window. Use a small paint scraper to gently pry the door panel in the area of the plastic buttons. Remove the plastic cover surrounding the door handle and there will be a screw to remove. The door panel should now be able to lift up at the window ledge and then you can remove the wiring harnesses from the panel to get it out of the way.
With the window jammed (with a wooden wedge) in the up position, you will see a hex head screw holding the window mechanism to the glass at each end of the glass. Just loosen these two screws about one and half turns. Look at the motor bracket and you should see approx. 3 or 4 hex head screws holding the motor to the metal door panel. Remove those screws and you should be able now to wiggle the window motor and mechanism out of the door panel. You will probably find that the braided cable connecting the motor pulley to the window arms has broken or is jammed inside the motor. I have taken this apart, reset the cable but it only worked once again before it jammed up again inside the motor. Go to your local Auto Wreckers and order a replacement motor and mechanism complete assembly for about $150. GM wants double that price! Good luck!

It has been My Experience that Most Repairs on this Vehicle ARE PRICEY and it is Not Worth the Maintnance Cost For Instance To Replace the STARTER One Must Remove the Engine Mount This tacks On an Axtra 80 Dollars to Lobor To Replace The Engine Labor ALONE is Around 1,500.00 Cmopared to 6-8 Hundred on Most other Makes & Modles I Personaly Would NOT own One.

SOURCE: blown head gasket

I would change both, as well as use new head bolts. Make sure your heads are not warped or cracked, especially the one that is leaking. There may not be any need to change the head if it is not cracked. These are prone to blowing a gasket especially after 150K miles or so. It will not cost a huge additional amount to change both head gaskets since the engine will have to be disassembled down to the heads anyway. Hope this helps you, Rick

SOURCE: Head gasket blown. What is approximate cost to

    Considerations
  1. Many internal engine problems, such as a blown head gasket, cracked head or cracked piston, can be repaired without having to replace an entire engine.
  2. Potential
  3. While taking the time to replace an engine may seem labor-intensive and costly, it will add years to a vehicle's life and will save a car owner from the cost of having to buy a new car.
  4. Benefits
  5. Taking a car to a mechanic and replacing an engine with a used engine can cost between $1,000 to $2,000 for parts and labor.
  6. Solution
  7. Car owners interested in replacing their engines with new ones can expect to pay anywhere between $2,000 to $4,000.
  8. Speculation
  9. For those interested in doing the engine replacement themselves, purchasing specialized tools needed for the job is a cost to consider in addition to the price of a replacement engine.

What should a complete tune-up with new hoses cost for a 2005 Buick La Sabre?


No...your BiL is OOHM (out of his mind) if he thinks they're comparable.

A tune-up shouldn't cost more than $200 - but depends on what all is being done.


What all does his 'tune-up' include? What are the hoses for?


Sell the F150 yourself.... even w/high miles it's worth $$. Go to KBB.COM and look up the Private Party value. Probably $5,000+

Milky oil dipstick, white exhaust smoke, coolant in spark plugs


*White milky oil on dipstick = coolant in oil.
*Coolant on sparkplugs = cracked head or blown head gasket
*White smoke = burning excessive oil in the cylinders, which can be caused by a number of things including valve seals, cracked head or blown head gasket.
***All three of these symptoms together, however, means its the head or head gasket. Both are costly but better the head gasket than the entire head.

Driver window fell down won't go back up. I have a buick la sabre 2001 4 door.


The Buick Le Sabre has a light-duty cable which raises and lowers the window. These cables break quite often. When they break the entire regulator w/motor must be replaced. The cable, the regulator, and the motor are only sold as a single unit.

Howq do I remove serpentine belt on my 1999 buick La saber


Find the tensioner it will be a pulley that does nothing but put tension on the belt. There should be a square hole in it. that should fit a 3/8 inch drive socket wrench or breaker bar. Use that to remove the tension from the belt and remove - do the same to install new belt
