My son has a 97 Buick La with the same problem, starting and stopping on him after driving. It happens some days and doesn't on other days. He took it to shop and they replaced his Fan seƱor and Thrmostat, it ran for a day then stopped again. Sounds like a Recall problem, everyone seems to have same problem, gonna call Buick to see if that was a common problem and if its some thing they can fix. Good Luck keep you posted...... JoyY

i have a 2000 buick lesabre, sometimes when i stop at a stoplight or at a stop sign my car shakes a little bit then it dies, after restarting it acts like it is cuting out, could it be the fuel filter.

I've got a 2003 Lesabre Custom and have some type of leak. The water accumulates on the rear drivers side floor closer to the middle of the car. There also seems to be some moisture under the drivers side carpet. I can't find the leak. Anyone else having a similar problem???

Have a 2000 Buick LeSabre.There is a rumble in what would seem to be the left front wheel or suspension ( front wheel drive ). If the steering
wheel is held in the straight position, the noise is not there,but if you turn slightly to the left
as to change a lane or to correct for drift, you
can hear the rumble. Any ideas as to what is
causing the noise ?
I have the same problem. When I am on the brakes, the left side is rumbling, but when I drive i don't hear it. Now when I turn the wheel right, i hear a loud rumbling noise. Any help.

My fuel gauge on my 2000 LeSabre doesn't work. When I put gas in it, it goes back and forward. The only warning I get is when the gas warning light comes on notifying me of low fuel.

I have 1992 buick lesabre that will run for up to 30 min at time during the colder months and now that is beginning to warm up it seems that it will run for about 15 min then it just cuts off while I am driving. I have to let it sit for an hour to get another 15 min out of it I have read all 535 post see that many people are having the same problem. Then consenus seems to be that it is some kind of sensor??? Which one would be recommended to replace first??? Any help would be great

I have a 2001 Buick LeSabre and I've had it for four years now. I had the transmission rebuild, the wheels aligned, tune up, ans etc. I hear this noise coming from the trunk area often it can be annoying. My gas gauge also moves up and down even when it is full I hate that it forces me to keep up with my mileage on the odometer which fluctuates with street and highway miles.

charles you may need a new hub unit and my husband and i replaced ours the noise and vibration stopped. we bought our hub unit we got a tempkin from auto zone. and how you tell its a hub unit when car is parked and off you give the tire a good shake back and forth if you see major movement your hub unit is a gonner.
