The Fuel Pump May Fail Causing the Engine to Stall or Crank Over But Not Start on Buick LeSabre

The fuel pump can fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians highly recommend to replace your fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

Engine won't catch. Battery died as a result. My daughter has car at school, so we had battery replace last year. One year later same issue. Replacing fuel filter to see if this solves the problem.

Summer time everything is fine, winter comes and it turns over but does not start. It has been sitting for over a month, I try to start it everyday with the same results, it does not start
I have intermitenet acceleration going uphill.
My car was running fine until one morning it wouldn't crank. It sounded like it wanted to crank but wouldn't turn over. I found that it was the fuel pump. it cost around $550 to replace.
Replace new fuel pump still won't star
Car died and would not start had to towe it home then changed the fuel pump and filter
