2002 Buick LeSabre Q&A
2002 Buick LeSabre Question: I HAVE A 2002 BUICK LESABRE CUSTOM,AND I AM HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE FUEL GAUGE.
HOW DO I FIX THIS? THE FUEL GUAGE PIN IS ALL OVER THE PLACE, MOSTY WHEN I GET DOW TO 3/4 TO 1/2 OF A TANK. DO I FIX THE FUEL PUMP? OR THE FUEL SENDING UNIT? WHAT DO I DO? I WANT THE CHEAPEST WAY THAT ACTUALLY WORKS BECAUSE I THINK $600 FOR SOMETHING THAT MINOR IS OUT OF THE QUESTION... I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO , WHERE TO GO, OR START. I NEED TO KNOW HOW MUCH GAS I HAVE AND IM TIRED OF CALCULATING MILAGE. PLEAS HELP. THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP. - taetaem
I had the same problem last year. You need to replace the Fuel Guage Sensor. Minor part, near fuel pump. - mamma shelley
If you have read on here that many people have had the same problem, then you know that replacing the fuel sensor may also require replacing the fuel pump since they are integral - and it costs several hundred dollars. Most people take the easy and inexpensive way out of this: reset the trip meter every time you fill up the gas tank and fill up when it gets to around 250 miles. - macdad
