Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

My 2000 buick le sabre jerks and loses power while accelerating.

I took it to the mechanic and he said he could find nothing wrong with the car. However, this morning as I was driving to work it started jerking violently (not vibrating, but jerking like when a stick shift stalls) and losing power. I floored the accelerator but it would no go above 20 to 30 miles per hours. I'd be grateful if anyone has ideas as what might be causing this.

First scan for any codes if it comes up po 300 just a guess it could be random misfire puts the car in limp mode . the igniton modual underneath the coil pacs the coils sit on could be redy to go or if not that check fule pressure by puting fule pressure guage on shrader valve located on fuel rail on top of injector assembly and check fule pressure with fule pressure guage. car of key on pump reading should be around 48-55 key on car on reading should be around 55.minus -3 to 10psi = reading of 38 to45 only if the fule regulator has vacume line atached to it on fule rail dubble check psi reqirments in car manual for co mpleat accuracy. If it doeint have vacume line pressure stays constant 48- 55psi

My 2000 Buick Lesabre will not start when i turn the key it does nothing.

I have to ask - since you didn't include any other info - do any lights work? If not - you may have a dead battery. You can attempt to jump the car or put a charger on the battery. Once started, you should drive the car w/ minimal accessories on (if jumped to start) to allow the battery to charge. You should have the batter checked for possible replacement or service very soon. Advanced Autoparts will do electrical system testing for free:

1997 buick le sabre- ran bottle of cleaner thru tank. there is absolutely no zero acceleration. any clues? im at a loss! plz help....

Please, even a trained mechanic, would have to see the car. He would check all fuel lines, all filters, the fuel pump and carburettor. And if that did not help, he would check timing and perhaps lots of other things.
I can't help, but perhaps you start checking some of the things a mechanic would check?

Jerking at acceleration and braking! no engine lights what could it be.

Leave the car at some shop or dealer,don't use it like that

If a shop doesn't seem to find things, there usually are
several reasons why

Try another more capable shop & spend some time
there,so you both understand the time to be applied
to diagnosing,your costs & the shop has to welcome
you into the service bay & prove they have the technology,
tools & personel to work on your car problems
