Question about 1997 Buick LeSabre

3 fuel pumps replaced

I've had to put 3 fuel pumps on my 97 Buick. That seems like a lot. Any thoughts on whether that seems excessive or not? If so any thoughts as to why?

Every few cents the gas pump clicks, no fuel gauge


Could be the fuel tank breather is blocked.
Lots of fuel tanks are wide and slim these days and formed to fit the body profile so they have one or more humps that are higher than the filler pipe entry. It would be quite impossible to fill such a fuel tank if the top of the hump(s) weren't vented.

Because the fuel tank these days must be a closed container except when filling, such vent pipes would be connected to a branch of the filler pipe above the maximum fuel level to ensure the tank can be filled and to minimise blowback during filling.

I can hear the fuel pump cut on and then cut off. and off but it seems very noisy. Is that an indication that it is bad? The engine tries to start


If fuel pump is whining excessively loud then yes it is a definite sign it is going out. Don't have enough information to advise you whether or not this will fix your current condition but a noisy fuel pump is a failing fuel pump.

I have a 2004 Chevy blazer V6. The last few mornings I have had a lot of trouble starting it , almost like it's flooded. You can smell gas. After you get it going it is kind of jerky but after...


Sounds like a faulty fuel pressure regulator.Pull the vacuum line off the fuel pressure regulator.If fuel runs out of it replace the regulator.

Engine cranks excessively before engine starts,even after warmed


Check your EGR valve make sure that is working properly, if it is then go to the fuel pump, just a cheaper fix to go after the EGR then the fuel pump
