- 2003 Buick Lesabre
I went to pick up my Great Granddaughter from school and all was well. Went to start the car and I had to use throttle to get it to start. Once started, it started sputtering and then a high rev of the engine. Went to pull out backwards, and I had to really push hard to get the brakes to stop it. Drove it home and only sputtered when I came to stops and ran fine once on the road. Both feet on the brakes to slow enough to make a left-hand turn after going 55. Just so you know, I have been having trouble starting the car and sometimes have to apply throttle and others it just starts fine. Today was the only day it started sputtering and the brake deal. Any ideas and help is greatly appreciated.
