  1. Replace Fuel Sender or Entire Fuel Pump?

    The usual inaccurate fuel gauge has taken a turn for the worse. While reading 1/2 full with the needle in the center, I pumped in over 15 gallons of fuel. Tank capacity is 18.5 gallons as you know. It needs a new sender, but with over 150,000 miles and 20 years on the fuel pump, should I go...
  2. LeSabre 2000-2005 Floor Mats

    A new set of custom mats would be the best way to go, but have any of you bought generic mats that are halfway decent? All I need is one driver's side mat. I wish we could buy custom made mats one at a time instead of going through the expense of a whole set.
  3. Cruise Control for 2000-2005 LeSabre

    My cruise control works for a couple of minutes before it disengages. I already replaced the cruise control release switch in hopes of fixing the problem. The cruise control release switch makes physical contact with the brake pedal and is directly above the brake light switch. Now I'm thinking...
  4. ALLDATA is having a special - $12.95 for 1 Year

    I got an email from ALLDATA today. They are running a special for $12.95. That is for one vehicle for one year. The promo code is SUMMER19. Their web address is
  5. How is your shift cable routed? (2000-2005 LeSabre)

    I'm having to place my shift cable on the outside of the engine cover because otherwise, the cable pushes the engine cover up. I think it's because I don't have the shift cable routed correctly. I probably misrouted the shift cable when I did the intake manifold gasket change. Would you mind...
  6. Strange Drivability Issue

    2000-2005 Buick LeSabre I'll be driving along and all of a sudden out of the blue, the engine will shut down for a split second and then resume operations like nothing happened. It feels like the engine locks up solid and the car hits a brick wall. This happens about once a week. No codes...
  7. Rear View Mirror 2000-2005

    Mine wiggles all over the place. It's not loose where it attaches to the glass; I think it may be loose in the pivot joint. Anyway to take the wiggle out?
  8. KYB rear shocks for 2000-2005 LeSabre. Don't Buy.

    After installing and uninstalling the KYB rear shocks about 6-8 times, I'm back to square one. No matter what I did with those KYB shocks, they would always rattle going down the road. I even took the car to a professional frame and wheel shop to have them check my work; they said everything was...
  9. Mystery Road Noise Finally Solved

    For the last couple of months I've been getting a noise while the car was in motion. I suspected the left rear tire because it had a cut in the tread; so I replaced the tire with a new one, but the noise was still there. My next suspect was wheel bearings; so I put the car up on jack stands and...
  10. Forum software makes links out of my words

    Forum software makes links out of my words when I don't want it to. For example: if I type out the words spark plug, it'll turn that into a link and highlight it green. It gets to be aggravating as heck because it'll rearrange the placement of the words I have in a sentence. I was just now...
  11. Pinch Weld Adapter for 2000-2005 LeSabre

    Just curious if any of you guys have found a pinch weld adapter that works well with the 2000-2005 LeSabre. I'm always jacking the car up from the sub frame, but if I ever want to get the car up real high someday -- like I'd need to to drop the transmission -- I'll need a pinch weld adapter.
  12. 14 lb-ft. for oil filters

    After searching the internet for two weeks, I finally found the answer in a Chilton online service manual. Wondering why my own service manual didn't have the torque spec, come to find out, it was in the manual the whole time on page 6-10 of Volume 1 under Fastener Tightening Specifications. The...
  13. Steering Wheel Play at Higher Speeds

    I'm starting to get a little bit of play while on the freeway at freeway speeds. It's more noticeable above 65 MPH. The car doesn't pull at all, which tells me the alignment is good. I have replaced the outer tie rods a couple of years ago, but the inner tie rods and the steering rack itself are...
  14. What's your preferred air pressure for tires?

    Door placard says 33 PSI, but just to give me an allowance for air pressure loss over an extended period of time; and the possibility of tire pressure gauge inaccuracy, I run 35 PSI. What about you?

  16. Ignition Switch Cylinder Kit - GM 15783576

    Can the new tumbler lock be re-keyed to match the pre-existing factory ignition key?
  17. ACDelco Strut Mounts Made In India

    Tomorrow I'm going to rebuild the struts with everything new except for the coil springs. A couple of the parts were made in India. The lower spring seats (KYB) and the upper strut mounts (ACDelco Professional). The KYB struts were made in Japan. The Monroe strut bellows were Made in USA. The...
  18. Right turn signal blinks super fast

    2000 Buick LeSabre Custom This just stated happening today on the drive home from work. Left turn signal blinks regular. Right turn signal blinks super fast. What do I need to replace?
  19. Monroe 171685 Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly

    I've heard that quick struts can raise the front of the car up by as much as 3 inches. Do they eventually settle down to the same hight as the old struts?
  20. MAP Sensor Code P0107

    It's a simple 3-wire connector. Grey for 5V reference, green for signal to the PCM, and orange w/ black stripe for ground. All 3 wires check out fine, but obviously the PCM thinks the voltage signal it's receiving is too low. No drivability issues whatsoever. I cannot find any vacuum leaks. I'm...
