Question about Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Trying to figure out what is wrong with my car I have a 2001 Buick Lesabre Limited. My car won't start up all the time. You have to keep playing with it or banging something hard on the ignition. I have taken it to 2 mechanics and they hooked it up to the computer and the only thing they could find wrong was the EGR valve needed to be replaced so I had it replaced. Still had the starter problem with it after then took it to the dealership and they hooked it up the computer too and found some problems with it including the EGR valve bad again but nothing to explain why the car won't start up on it's own. I am getting desperate I have to leave my car running just to run around and doing errands and it is eating up all my gas. Then I have to take a gamble and cut my car off when I am @ work and hope it will start up when I get off. Any ideas??

First you have to get it looked at when it won't start, scanning with a computor won't tell you that, then its a matter for runing voltage checks to the starter etc. it could be the ignition switch, a bad connection somewhere on the starter or the battery, its a long list, and it may take some time

Sounds like it could possibly be the upper or lower control arm bushings squeaking. There may possibly be a grease fitting on the control arm bushings, if so, have them greased. In fact get a complete grease job from a qualified mechanic. If the squeak stops then you know what is wrong. Then make sure you keep your care properly greased. Usually every time you change your oil or at least twice yearly.

Battery location 2000 buick lesabre

I have a 2001 Buick LeSabre Limited. Pull up on the rear seat cushion along the front edge. The battery is located under the rear seat. Be sure to connect the vent lines to the new battery. This keeps fumes out of the car, and keeps it from corroding the interior surfaces.

My 2001 buick lesabre keeps cutting off while im driving

OMG!! I had the same problem and it was very scary because it would cut off without notice. I had several things replaced trying to find a solution to this problem for example: fuel regulator, fuel pump, throttle sensor, and more. The solution for me was the MASS AIR/FLOW SENSOR. When I had that done my problem has been solved. I thank GOD for the people that helped me fix this because no one could seem to figure out what the problem was. I hope this helps you good luck and drive safe!
