OK, confess here... what type of Uranium additive you use when you fill up the gas tank?

Barely 68,000 miles on mine. 99 LeSabre

Did you changed or rebuilt the transmission or the engine?

If you want the engine & trans to stay alive past the 200K mark, it will take early & regular trans/filter & engine oil change replacement to survive. Top brand synthetic fluids are the best for longevity.

2003 LeSabre custom
I just bought a 2003 LeSabre and it only has 56,683 miles on the odometer. Original engine, original everything, single owner, up until now, and he kept meticulous service records. It runs like a champ. I love it.

What a beautiful car! Looks like a new vehicle! I expect that this will provide many years of dependable use.

Yep, got it in Jacksonville, Florida. I will post some interior pics later, maybe tomorrow. I've been so busy with work and now a side job that I haven't had any time.

Finally got some more pics of my beautiful new car. I love this thing. I just gotta figure out why it idles a little rough. It only does it while it is warm. Unfortunately I don't have a tachometer so I can't see what it's doing but I can for sure feel it. Does anyone know what I should look at? I have a DMM and an oscilloscope so I can diagnose most issues. There are no check engine lights on so the car seems to think everything is fine.

Misfire will not set an CEL until there is a substantial number of misfires on a particular cylinder, or random misfire on several cylinders. It appears from the pics, that the ignition wires are all original and the plugs may be also. Miles has no effect on either, it is all related to age and how the previous owner drove the car to church & the grocery store that can foul plugs & cat running no more than 25-mph after a cold start. I would start by changing the wires & plugs and see how it responds. Do you have a scanner that will detect current misfire live data? If so, you should be able see the number of misfires for each cylinder. That engine should run smooth as glass!

Sorry for derailing this topic, but I just ordered spark plugs, wires and a fuel filter all AC Delco, and they should be here in about 4 days. This engine will purr once more.
You are very wise to use all AC Delco parts. Just a few times when I decided to go cheap, I was very sorry for that decision on my parts purchase. I have had all good experiences with AC Delco.
