Check to see if you have any spark wile cranking the engine. Did the car get hot before you tuned it? Hope you didn't blow the headgasket. White smoke could mean that. IT's hard to say without more info.

2000 buick lesabre runs rough, black carbon on one coil post when removing plug wire.


The coil may be bad. Was the plug wire inserted all the way in? Could be a bad coil, but also check that wire and its spark plug for any sign of damage. Not likely, but check.

99 Buick Lesabre Check engine light flashing.I changed wires and plugs but still misfiring on one cylinder, but all plugs are firing. Have 84,000 miles and has been running great until light came on and...


From the symptoms of the problem and the precautions you have done i think its time to check the EGR valve.Clean your EGR valve and then put it again. How handy you are in ding this?

As the check engine light is on did you scan for error code which will help you more specific to locate the problem.

2000 buick lesabre runs rough. It started running rough and the I drove it around for a while and it was okay for several weeks and then started running rough again and staying that way.


First I would change where I buy gas.And perform a tun up,start with the spark plugs,if it runs okay your done if not #2 change your wires.And clean your throttle body with carb cleaner.

Changed spark plugs in 97 buick lasabre and now it cranks and runs, but white smoke coming out. Is that blown head gaskets? Does it have anything to do with the fuel pump my mechanic put on 3 weeks ago???


You need to check the oil with the dipstick (wipe in down a few times) to see if it looks like a chockalate milk shake. If coolent has made its way into the oil you have blown head gasket. The fuel pump which is usually in the gas tank in most gm vehicles would not cause white smoke, if it failed you car would not start because your engine would not get any gas to the injectors
