  4. Engine codes

    I have a 2010 Lacrosse with the 3.0L. My engine light is on. I had it scanned at AutoZone today they came up with a P0017 AND P0420. He said I should have a diagnostic run on it to see what is going on. The code P0420 is the more common for engine light, right? Is there a way to fix this...

  6. Engine light

    I have a 2010 Lacrosse with the 3.0L. The engine light has been coming on, then, when I am ready to have it checked out at AutoZone, it goes away. Then a day or so later it comes on again. I think this is kinda weird . What could it be?
  7. Spark plugs

    On my 2010 Buick LaCrosse there is a rubber squeak in the steering. Mechanic and I thought it was coming from the top of the strut on the passenger side. Struts were replaced with Monroe Quick Struts but the noise is still there when I turn the steering wheel. He took the struts out again and...

  14. Weird feeling

    I have a 2010 Lacrosse, and when going down the road at times it feels like the vehicle is on ice. Its sort of a helpless feeling. What could this be ? Bad or weak struts? Sway bar links? Don't know what to look for, any ideas??
