Buick LeSabre QuestionsRefine by vehicle
my 95 laSaber seems to idle high it goes down then back up it does that driving or not.
alternator will not charge,battery alternator checked,good what could it be pcm replaced
After getting my oil changed today, the shop told me that my steering gear needed complete removal and installation due to the rack & pinon leaking at a cost of $981. There were also two other estimates---one for the valve cover seaping (not too badly) at $259 and another for a right inner axle leak of $232. On the $981 repair, they said that the fluid level needed to be monitored until fixed (which sounded correct) or I could loose all steering which was the most serious of the three repairs. Does any or all three of the estimates sound about right or not? I'm not mechanically savy so your help and input would be much appreciated in my situation. My car has about 75,400 miles on it and I'm beginning to wonder if the time has come to get something else by now. I bought my Buick new and up to now it has been pretty much trouble-free, other than the usual repairs/maintenance issues, but then on the other hand I don't want to be throwing my hard-earned cash into a "money pit". Does it seem like its come to that point now or not yet? Thanks for your help.

brakes won't release when care is running, but will release when the car is turned off. How do I fix this?
I can feel the roughness thru the steering wheel the worst when first leaving the house. then it is much less of a noise or feel the rest of the day. I can't feel this when I make a right turn. I have had all parts replaced on the front end of the Buick Lasabre. Took it to the dealer and they wanted to replace the whole power steering rack. Could it be just the power steering pump, since there are no leaks anywhere?
Were told by Brakemasters that our car has "a small coolant leak". Upon further questioning re: a/c factor-- were told that it has to do with the engine. They will need to remove parts to see where this leak is coming from.

leaking water from radiator. Having to replace water in overfill bottle.
I recently had my wheel bearing assemblies and my driver side outer tie rod end replaced and also had my wheels balanced. I drove from IL to TN with the car loaded down with boxes and my dog and cat and within the last 100 miles of my trip the front end started shaking really badly. It is still shaking really badly and it is worse at speeds of 50 or above. Could it be the tires came out of balance, I damaged a rim or maybe the other tie rod end is going out? Please advise. Thanks.
