Buick Rainier Problems
The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may fail causing erratic fuel gauge operation. Our technicians tell us that on high mileage vehicles you may wish to replace the complete fuel pump module assembly if this condition occurs.
On certain 2005 - 2007 vehicles, General Motors has provided a special service policy covering the fuel level sensor, agreeing to pay 50% of the repair cost. This coverage extends for 10 years or 120,000...
I had a new battery installed and since the air condition only blows out on my feet. I have heard that this is has been an issue with several owners. Have you run across this and any ideas how to fix it? (Fuses have been checked, and the battery has been disconnected and reinstalled)
A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.
The CD player in the radio may fail. Our technicians tell us that the radio will need to be removed and sent out to a radio repair shop to correct this condition.
Buick Rainier Recalls (Recent)
RepairPal Expert Overview:
Vehicles first sold, or currently registered, in certain states where salt is used to de-ice the roads are being recalled because fluid may enter the driver's door module, causing corrosion that could result in a short in the circuit board. A short may cause the power door lock and power window switches to function intermittently or become inoperative. The short may also cause overheating, which could melt components of the door module, producing an odor, smoke, or a fire. As of this time, the remedy plan is still being finalized and a notification schedule has not been determined. The GM recall number is 12180.

have dtc po410 code 4.2 engine any answers
I have had suspension problems, gas gauge problems and now thermostat problems. I have replaced the temperature sensor which caused temperature to jump all over the place. Started out stuck at 50 degrees, now climbs to 120 degrees. Problem is the air conditioner stops working when reading changes radically, up and down. I am a cardiac patient with asthma and emphysema and cannot ride in the extreme heat without a reliable source of cooling. When it works, it cools beautifully, but doesn't last. It is so sporadic, I can not rely on it. What can I do? Seems electronics are a big problem.
I have had this vehicle for 2 + yrs it had 101,592 miles on it when I first got stuck with it. Since then I had to have the valve cover gasket replaced ($378) (intake manifold also had to be replaced), at 103,692 miles the transmission failed, it had to be rebuilt ($3012.80)it was determined that when assembled by GM they assembled it was not aligned properly at factory, then the thermostst went out (cost $239), when thermostat went the gauge in instrument panel stoped working it had to be sent to location to be fixed. Since I've had this vehicle it has done nothing but fail. Iwill not buy or reommend a Buick to anyone!
