Question about 1989 Buick LeSabre
It could be a loose or bad fuel filler cap. Make sure your filler cap is in place and tight.
It also could be the grade of fuel you are getting, sometimes just a different grade of fuel, or lesser quality of fuel can make it come on for a time and then go off.
You can disconnect your battery for up to 20 to 30 minutes to clear the codes and reset it.
If it comes back on after you do this, you need to have a diagnostic tool hooked up to it and have the codes read, and act accordingly.

I am buying a 1989 buick lesabre for $800 and just put $400 down yesterday and $400 next week too and i was driving the guy home to his ranch.he is a teacher i had last year and i gave him a ride back to his ranch and then i drove home.no problems there.i got home and was leaving to go show the car to my sister-in-law and i was at the bottom of my drive way and the car just dies.my dad gets it started and puts the car in drive and the car died again in the middle of the road which wae live on a busy road so i pushed it into the stores parking lot.he got it to start again and drove it to the gas station by our house and filled it up.then it started reight up and ran decent.well,lately,i had it checked out,found out that the front brake line has started to crack and that the brake pads are starting to wear down.the car has 119,685 miles or somewhere around that.the check engine light has been coming on and the car still runs though but then after a little while,the light for the check engine soon light goes off and the car remains to run.i was wondering on what could cause this to happen.thanks.

What is 'cadalis' code? ... catalytic converter efficiency below threshold? If so, it's not the O2 sensor. The converter is worn out if the code is catalytic converter efficiency. Sorry, expensive repair.

if you didnt have the issue with the check eng before then I would take it back for them to reinspect the job. And at least have then put a scanner on it to check why the light is coming on at idle.

this is not a solution when the light comes on go to your local auto parts store and have them run test on computer then write back with info so i can better help you.
