When you say "not crank," I am assuming will not start. This COULD be a problem with your idle air control valve. Is the check engine light on? If yes, check those first. Otherwise try cleaning the IAC. It might be clogged. You can get a repair manual from any parts store to find out its location and any other info you might need. It will help you with other necessary repairs as well. In many vehicles, the IAC is usually connected to the throttle body. Good luck.

BTW, the IAC controls the idle RPMs when throttle (accelerator pedal) is not applied.

Just purchased 2000 Buick LeSabre. 56,000 miles, sporadic trouble starting--sometimes starts first try, other times will crank and won't start and have to slightly depress the accelerator and then will...


If it runs rough all the time, could be a bad coil pack/wires. If just starting and hesitates on acceleration, I would suspect the throttle position sensor.

The idle relearn needs reset. Keep your foot on the gas at about 900 rpm. Make it idle for about 5-6 minutes. Slowly ease up on the gas until it will idle on it's own, it might take a while. After you get it to idle, it might be idling real low, but on its own, Let it sit and idle until for 20 minutes. After that it should be back to normal. You will have to do this every time you have the battery unhooked for a while.

2000 Buick century custom only has heat when you accelerate fast but puts out cold air when you accelerate normally or at a steady speed.


Check your coolant level. Not enough fluid in the radiator to circulate when the engine is operating normally.

My car will start but won't stay on.


Check you fuel pressure to see if its putting out enough fuel to keep the engine running. Otherwise it could be a dirty fuel filter or a bad fuel injector

How to replace a coolant level sensor, 2000 buick century


The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.
