I havbe a 2000 Buick LeSabre Limited with the 3800

I have a 2000 Buick LeSabre Limited with the 3800 V-6 engine. The digital oil prersure reading started fluctuating between 75psi-105psi a few days ago. It is now reading a constant 130psi. I suspect the oil sending switch is the problem but I'm not sure of its location. Help please.

It's on the housing the oil filter is screwed on to.

I need to locate the camshaft sensor on a 3800 series ii V6


Here is a link with a diagram about half way down the page that points out the sensor as number 8. It looks like it should be near the oil filter just up and over a bit. There is some good info on this page to that may help. Good luck! Have a great day!

When i first start my 95 lesabre it run really rough until its warm after its warm it idles real nice but if i give it too much throttle too fast it cuts out and loses power especially up hills.i just hadf...


Sounds like the throttle body is sticking. Do not use WD40 to free it. Use some Carb cleaner on it and then oil it with some synthetic 5w30 engine oil. You may also have to clean the MAF and MAP sensors if this is fuel injected. I had a 2000 Buick Lesabre and the glue came off letting in water when driven in the rain. It would cut out till the heat from the engine dried out the water and then it would work again.

1995 buick lesabre limited, oil gauge issue


Could be two things, your oil pump pick tube is clog, oil pan would have to be drop to check, or your camshaft bearing worn causing low oil pressure,I would not say piston rod bearing or main bearing, cause there's no knock noise. You will have better oil pressure when cold due to oil much thicker. so I would forget about a bad oil pump.
