Well after a while driving it , it will just die going down the road but will start right back up after i stop and switch it off . Usually after the car is warmed up from driving .They suggested putting a new fuel filter which i did but didnt help . Coul you please help me ?

Its the electrical connection at he fuel pump,if this is ok ask if they replaced the strainer on your fuel pump,your fuel pump is inside your gas tank ,you have to drop the tank to service,most fuel pumps are not warrantied if you dont change the strainer,when your car shuts off the sediment on the strainer falls back into the tank,but when you run your car and it sucks up the gas thru the strainer to the pump it clogs the strainer and the fuel pump cant pump,you shoiuld find out if they changed this because your forcing your fuel pump to work harder,was it a new fuel tank or used one that they put in

WHERE IS THE FUEL PUMP RESET SWITCH ON A 2002 BUICK LE SABRE


Only Ford products have an inertia switch.
If the pump does not work, you would need to check for voltage at the pump relay and the connector at the gas tank.

How do i change the fuel filter in my 85 buick le sabre


Should be under the car, in front of the gas tank if it is fuel injected.
Takes two wrenches, one to hold the filter and one to hold the line.

I have a 2000 buick Le Sabre. gas gauge does not work properly. i filled the tank and the gas gauge reads full. and it works properly past half. then it starts flucturating. i disconnected the gas gauge...


There are three possibilities. The gauge could be defective. The instrument panel voltage regulator could be bad or not grounded or (most expensive) it might be the sending unit.

HOW DO I TIGHTEN THE LOOSE BELT AFTER INSTALLATION ON 97 BUICK LE SABRE? REALLY NEED A DIAGRAM TO MAKE SURE I INSTALLED THE SERPENTINE BELT CORRECTLY.


There may be a diagram imprinted on fan shroud. There is a belt tensioner that tightens the belt. Also when installing belt be sure you have grooved part of belt riding on grooved pulleys. And flat side of belt riding on flat sided pulleys.

I ran out of gas in my 97 Buick le sabre, and now that it has gas in it, it won't start. What is the problem and solution?


Might have burnt out the fuel pump, check fuses, and then try to pressurize the fuel system, turn the key ON and OFF about 5 - 10 times this allows fuel to build up pressure in the fuel rail to be used by your injectors.

1997 Buick Le Sabre will not start somtimes


My wife has a 96 we had a similar problem. I believe that the connectors on the chip that is in the ignition key are worn out. The manual said that it is a safety feature on the car if someone tries to use a different key in the ignition or tries to punch it, it disables the car for like 3 minutes. We had a spare ignition key and switched to that and haven't had the problem since. Hope that solves your problem.
