If I am not mistaken it is on the right side of engine (passenger side) uder the P/S pump pump would have to be unbolted and moved out of the way to gain access to sensor

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.

2000 Buick LeSabre Will not start Replaced cam


Multiple engine misfire is related to the coils and the ignition control module. I have a 2002 with the 3.8 engine. It has three coils. I just went through this problem. I bought one coil and tried it in each position with no improvement. It was the ignition control module. Mine is located under the three coils. A relatively easy item to replace. Cost about $140.

Number 18 trouble shooting code


18 = Cam Crank Problem
36 = Transaxle Shift Problem

Hope this helps. - Jarett

The transaxle shift problem I am unfamiliar with, but the cam crank problem is probably either your Camshaft Position sensor, or Crankshaft Position Sensor.

It is very likely the part that is giving you the problem is a Crankshaft Position Sensor, they go open circuit when they get hot, then after it cools it becomes a good circuit again, this is very frustrating, had the same issue with my Buick a few years ago, replaced the coils and the ignition module at a cost of hundreds, DID NOT CHANGE A THING, the crank sensor fixed the problem and was $30.00 from Buick.
