Your heater core is leaking. It is allowing engine coolant to enter the passenger compartment via the air conditioner / heater ductwork. A cheap temporary fix is to purchase a radiator stop leak product and have someone put it in your radiator. Follow directions carefully, as the coolant can be very, very hot and under pressure. The correct repair can be quite expensive. In warmer climates you can bypass the heater core and run without a heater.

My 2002 Buick Lesabre starts and idles rough like its trying to die could it be the fuel pressure regulator

It could be anything, but fuel pressure is down on the list. Look for vacuum leaks, dislodged hoses, cracked hoses....much more common for problems there.BUT take the car and have the error codes pulled. Something is amock and the codes are clues. Not answers or the culprit necessarily, clues...

I have a 98 buick LeSabre showing a random missfire code

Disconnect the battery for about a half hour or so. This could clear the code and turn off the light.If it has a problem the light will return. If it does replace the spark plugs one at a time being sure the gap is perfect.

Service engine soon light came on and does not go out

under the dash you will find a diagnostic port however there are only a few wires going to it,on the top of the port there are two wires side to side take a peace of wire and make a jumper, jump the two wires that are side to side. turn the switch on and count how many times the check engine light blinks it will give you code 12 three times and then the code after that is what is making your car sick. hope this has helped you !

I have a 1990 buick lesabre custom 4 door

Hi there,

I had the same problem with my 89 Buick Le sabre. It turned out that I had to replace the computer. It was giving the wrong signals and cutting off the fuel. My engine light came on each time it happened. Since the computer was changed it has run like a charm. It cost about $500.
Also when they ran the tests for the eng light data the computer was giving the wrong info and so many of the wrong parts were first replaced.
