Ncc-1701-d do not listen to this guy. This car is fuel injected. NO CARBURETOR! it's a throttle body! Do not mash pedal at all when starting car anytime. Engine light on? May be a problem with the Idle air control valve or the map sensor check the vacuum hose that goes to the map sensor. Check for vacuum leaks also. Check the three way connector on the hose from the cruise servo to vac. source. reply. 3800 or 3.8 these are two different motors.

1994 Buick Lesabre calls for a 160 or 180 degree thermostat

that is the opening temperature for the thermostat
it opens at 160 degrees which is good for hot weather operation or another with 180 degrees which is good for cold weather operations
The differences is 160 opens sooner to start coolant circulation to keep operating temperature low where the 180 keeps shut and allows the operating temperature to rise up as soon as it open the cold air will quickly cool the coolant.

89 Buick Lesabre wont start - it is not the battery - Is it the starter of a bad chip in the key. Is there a way to tell?

1989 buicks did not have a chip in keys. get someone to use a remote strter switch(which you can buy at a parts store). follow instructions. if it doesn't start; try there.

Fuel problem

Clean battery cables. Check crank sensor, next time it will not start pour water on the sensor and if it cranks you will know what to replace.

97 buick lesabre cold weather starts

Well you could hook up a battery charger. Or if you have another vehicle and jumper cable you could try to jump it. If it starts with the jump then it is most liklely your battery.

I used the decision that it is real cold

Cold weather starts

Your going to need a new battery. This is the simplest fix for the issue. I would also recommend a block heater. Certain models of these basically get mounted inline with your coolant hoses and they constantly heat and circulate your antifreeze so your car is instantly warm when you start it. They do have to be plugged into an electrical outlet but they are worth it in very cold weather.

Just don't forget to unplug them before you leave with the car :)

But for now sounds like the only thing you really need is a new battery. As much as i hate to say it walmart has some pretty good deals on batteries and they usually don't charge to put them in. Worth it especially when its cold.
