  2. Capless fuel filler

    No problem with my 2017 Lacrosse. I will note that if the nozzle is at an angle or tilted, as if the hose coming from the side ot top, not the bottom, it may shut off. But that can happen with other cars as well.
  3. 2018 Lacrosse premium v6

    In 17 months no problems with stop-start. While I would just as soon not have it (old dogs do not care for new tricks), it has not been overly intrusive or a problem.
  4. 2010 Buick Lacrosse emissions monitor question

    Sounds like you have two codes set. One appears to be P0442. What is the other? In H02, the H means "heated" 02 sensor.
  5. Navigation system vs OnStar

    Never used Onstar's turn-by-turn so I do not know how good it is, but the stock navigation system works for me as long as I am going someplace covered by the build-in map, which is only as good as the last update. It may be that On-star turn-by-turn maps are updated more often and thus more...
  6. 2017 Infotainment System Cell Phone Charging Slot

    Question: Does the lightning bold (by the phone icon) remain on while a cell phone is in the slot, or is it supposed to go off after a few seconds?
  7. Bye to all

    My '04 LeSabre is now gone, replaced by a '17 LaCrosse. Thanks to all for their help addressing issues over the years. FWIW I've listed my Factory Service Manuals on E-bay. Is the LaCrosse better than the LeSabre - in many respects yes, and in some others no.

  9. ABS/traction/Stability light issue

    The ABS, Traction Control off, and Service Stability are lit after starting to move. I Get a C1222 & 1226 codes (RF wheel zero speed/erratic). The wheel sensor measures OK (both ohms and A/C output when wheel spins) at both the hub connector, and at the EBCM connector so the hub and wiring...
  10. Best ICM?

    I think I need a new Ignition Control Module for my '04 LTD. It looks like the cyl 2/5 section is dead. That brands have folks found to be good or bad? Delphi A/C Delco Auto Zone's Duralast? Advance Autopart's Carquest by BWD? Driveworks? Other? Napa's brands
  11. Hub tale of woe

    Replaced my front hubs with MOOGs in January 2014. In August 2014 at annual safety inspection the inspector said the was some play in the right side, but the garage owner said it were OK.

  12. Passenger side door mirror replacement

    I need to replace the passenger door mirror on my father's 2011 Lucerne CXL. I have a replacement assembly with the needed DR2 and A45 options codes. Does the inside door panel need to be removed to reach the connectors, or is is sufficient to just remove the small inside cover that is over...
  13. Dropping my fuel tank! Yes or no?

    ^ A nice, detailed step-by-step. I'll double the caution with respect to gasoline. You can spill a lot if not careful removing the guts from the tank. On DIY difficulty, not hard beyond taking care around open fuel. Perhaps on a par with replacing a tranny filter. Port in the trunk sketch...
  14. Transmission fluid change

    There are several threads on harsh shifts. Could becaused by several things, and there are several solution depending on the cause. The car probably came with Dexron III fluid, but GM no longer makes or licenses that product or name. GM uses Dexron IV now, including as replacement for Dexron...
  15. Parasitic Battery Drain

    Every so often questions come up regarding parasitic battery drain. The following is from a TSB applicable to 2005 and earlier models.

    Looks like mine is going at 140K miles. Lots of play when I pull on the pump pulley, and a bit ow coolant driping from what appears to be behind the pulley. (Its not a leak from the bypass elbows.) If you have replaced one, how long did your original last?
  17. Front hub bearing wear check

    I can feel no play when trying to "rock" the front wheels with a grip at 3-9, but can feed some play with a grip at 6-12. No play at all with the rear wheels. Car has 140K miles. Wouldn't bearign wear show play with the 3-9 grip - or is this likely something else?

    The DORMAM replacement cross pipe over comes with two gaskets, but the FEL-PRO replacement gasket infor says the 2004 Lesabre need only one gasket. Anyone know which is really on the vehicle? TIA
  20. Impending LIM Gasket Failure.

    This is what the OEM plastic LIM Gasket (from a 2004 Limited) looks like after 135K miles. You will note the failed plastic at the sides of this port, especially on the left, and it was only a matter of a bit of a bit more time before it would start to leak coolant. I think I am lucky that I...
