Question about 1997 Buick LeSabre
Upon reaching steady cruising speed (45 to 65 mph), the car begins one-second surges while climbing hills or if slightly accelerating on a level surface. This does not occur during moderate acceleration or while in lower gears. Already changed all plugs/wires...now what? Since it's random, the mechanic can't find it and is charging me everytime I bring it in and it's STILL not fixed! HELP!!!
Hi, I have a 97 lesabre and experienced the same thing. I know torque converters can cause this but before I would remove or change that I would wait til night time, then start the car and look at your spark plug wires. I would guess you have at least 1 bad wire. I had 3 that were glowing and I could follow the spark all the way down the wire. I had to learn from trial and error! Eric
