Question about Buick LeSabre
Someone please help!!!! I have a 2000 buick lesabre that will stop running when at operating speed and temp. I pull over and put the car in park and turn it opver a few times and it starts. The engine will keep running for about five min. then it stops again. The service engine light comes on and then goes off. The code is set for CAM position sensor. I replaced the CAM sensore but still have the problem.
I had a similar problem with my 2000 lesabre. It would cut off while driving, or hesitate then keep running while rpm guage would quit operating. Guage would return to normal function at next start up. After reading several posts here and elsewhere, and consulting with my mechanic, I decided to replace the crankshaft position sensor. My mechanic said he had done this before on this GM engine model. He gave me several possible causes and no guarantees. After replacing the CPS (about $120 including parts and labor), the car has not hesitated or cut off once. This was about a month ago. The problem was worse in hot weather, which my mechanic said was typical.

A cam sensor only helps the computer when cranking and should not make it cut off. Most cam sensors do not go bad, but he magnet on the timing gear will deterorate. To fix that the timing cover will have to come off. Replace the crank sensor they get hot and stop working. When they cool down they will work again until it gets hot.
