gas gauge goes wacky when it gets down about a quarter of a tank. It operates ok as far as I can tell if the level is kept above that. Whats the problem?

it just happened

a service message stating "service stability system" appeared on dash, after stopping and restarting the car the message is gone. I was driving using cruise control at the time of the message.

What needs to be done to service it? a dealership said bring in the car and they would need to diagnose the problem at a cost of $100-$150, sounds very high for looking and reading some codes.

just wondering if im higher then the high mark about an inch can that be bad for my tranny? thanks

tilt stuck in up position

car runs fine, then shuts off. have to wait awhile then it restarts then it repeats this. Have taken it 3 diffrent places and every one says it checks

When starting the car,the air pump lifts shocks to max. height. The car stays at max. as long as the runing and being driven. Is there a manuel available system?

of the two adjustment screws, which one adjust the low beam height. at present my low beam is not far enough foward. About three car lenghts. Its hard for me to see ahead.

I had my 2002 buick lesabre tuned-up last Friday. Today, it took 2 times to start the car. When I filled up with gas, it wouldn't start the first time and then on the second time, it sounded like a back fire and then started, but idles very rough and at times there is a whistling noice from back of engine.

power steering fluid leak at metal line connection by boot
of rack and pinion cylinder are these lines replaceable?

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.

sluggish seems the best word to describe it

First time car wouldnt start.It's narrowed to the fuel filter,fuel pump&/or injection.Is there a reset button? Fuse's can be a reset button.

I have a 1990 Buick lesabre when I press the gas it acts as if it doesnt want to go it only goes maybe 25...what may be wrong with it..

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.

i have a 93 buick lasabre limited when car is at idle it starts to run rough but if i give it gas it is ok when it run rough the check engine light comes on any ideas?

Expected cost (parts and labor) to have the left front drive axle replaced in a 2000 Buick Lesabre, 3.8 liter engine.

Front right goes on and off at double the normal speed. No light in rear light.

I was wondering if there is a fused link any where. Or maybe a relay.
