#651 of 1520 Tire replacement on 2002 LeSabre
Aug 28, 2002 (10:17 am)
For a better ride and stability I would consider Bridgestone Turanzas...They improved the ride on my old 1993 LeSabre...the downside is that you will have to replace them 35k miles...for endurance go with Michelon. The tradeoff in tire buying is always ride vs wear. Actually the original equipment Generals are probably going to be hard to beat for soft ride on the LeSabre since Buick wants to suck-in older buyers who like that feature. I would keep the Generals until the tread gets thinner and your ride rougher before going to Turanzas or Michelons.
#652 of 1520 1991 slow power windows

My 1991 LeSabre has slow power windows (all 4). I find it hard to believe that all 4 motors are bad, but I guess it's possible. I was thinking it was more of a low voltage issue. I haven't measured the voltage at the motors though.
#654 of 1520 hesitant acceleration
Sep 30, 2002 (5:36 am)
Hello, I am new to this site and am hopeful I can get the answers to my situation.
I have a 93 buick lesabre LTD with 167,000 kms.
My situation is when I am at a full stop,and when I step on the acceleration, there is a pronounced hesitation. It seems no fuel is getting to the required destination.
I have had the fuel injectors cleaned, a new gas filter and new spark plugs.
I am trying to avoid paying the money for a scope,can anyone give me any suggestions as to what this recurring problem be? Thank you.

Car is almost 12 years old, isn't it?
#658 of 1520 changing taillight bulbs
Oct 10, 2002 (8:36 am)
My 2000 LeSabre Custom seems to burn out taillight and turn signal bulbs with some frequency. I was trying to change the bulbs in the light assembly which is attached to the trunk lid. You have to remove the whole assembly to change a bulb and the nuts on the fasteners for the assembly are set so deep into the trunk lid I can't reach them with pliers or an open end wrench and the stems are so long that deep sockets won't fit either. I can't believe I may have to take the car to the dealer to change taillight bulbs. In my book, that's a really stupid design.
#659 of 1520 How important is steering system flush?
Oct 13, 2002 (9:19 am)
I bought this Le Sabre when it was 135K Km and now it is almost 165K and I don't know when it was last done. I received a notification from the dealer the other day for a steering system flush. How crucial is it and do I need a dealer to do it?
#660 of 1520 RE: tomcat630 What's your point?

Yes, it's 12 yrs old. Big deal. Are you saying I should heap it because it's 12 yrs old and the power windows are slow? I'll put in the replacement motors and keep it going if it's OK by you.
It runs like new with the new suspension and tires I had put on. Engine oil change every 3K and very well maintained through it's 90K of service. Body shows minor surface rust, but otherwise, it's going to keep running for another 50-70K.
Please do not comment if you don't have anything constructive to say.
