I'm unsure from your post if you have a current concern with your LaCrosse at this point, or if you have had an unsatisfactory service experience with your dealership. If either of the above is true and you would like for us to look into this further for you, please contact us via email at socialmediagm.com with more information (including your name and contact information, summary of the situation, the last 8 digits of your VIN and mileage, and the name of your dealership).

This sounds like the identical issue I am currently having with my 2012 Lacrosse. This is the 3rd time into the dealer for the same issue, car won’t start. Dealership has been great with keeping me in one of their cars and GM actually flew a Engineer out to look at the car. One week later they still are not sure what the cause is. The fix was "replace another computer module". If it stalls again I am going to ask GM to buy it back.
Bill925, what was your outcome?

My 2007 La Cross intermittently stalls and won't start for fifteen minutes up to an hour, then runs great for a few hundred miles before it does it again. The dealer can never get it to do it for them and there are no fault codes. Has anyone had this problem and how did you fix it?
#36 of 43 2011 LaCrosse Stalling
Jul 30, 2013 (8:28 am)
I have a 2011 LaCrosse and during the heat wave we have been having it stalls on me. Once in the middle of an intersection, once on teh highway and quite a few other times just around town. Talked to the dealershipo and they said I need my fuel injector cleaned? My husband says that is crazy. Seems to have started during a heat wave we have been having in the Northeast. They want me to pay 200.00 to have this service done. I feel it is a fault with the car. It should not stall out on me like that. The car is only 2 years old!!!!!! Very Unhappy. Been buying GM Products for years. A few months ago my daughters 09 Chevy Cobalt needed a new fuel pump. They wanted 1,000.00 to fix it and then I find out that there is problems with Chevy Cobalts fuel pumps! Said it is in warm weather states only. I am losing my confidence with GM.

First of all, let's talk about the Chevy Cobalt fuel pump. I have not heard of anyone needed a fuel pump on the Cobalt. That infers that fuel pump problems are relatively rare. In fact, they are rare on most cars. Behaviors that _cause_ fuel pump failure are running the fuel level low in the tank. People that don't keep the tank at above 1/4, I prefer above 1/3, often find an early fuel pump failure becuase the fuel keeps the pump cooled. When the level drops below the pump, that fuel no longer is cooling the pump, which causes it to develop problems.
I don't know your daughter, nor her age, nor her driving patterns, but you can decide if the fuel pump committed suicide or if it was murdered by low fuel level. I was at a local quick market getting morning coffee and a lady had cranked her car so long she ran the battery down. Her fuel level was 0 and the car died about 100 feet from the fuel pumps on the street. Cranking when there was zero fuel going through the pump probably will cause that pump to fail soon. I warned her that might happen as I used her jumper cables to help her start her car after she put in fuel. I suspected she ran the fuel level low at times because of not being able to afford gas right then. The point of this comment is to remind your daughter to keep the fuel level above the 2 or 2.5 gallons that 1/4 tank represents on the 12-gallon tank in the Cobalt. My son has my 2008 at Ohio State at college. He has been given the "lecture."
As for the LaCrosse, is it still under warranty?
I had a fuel injector clog recently on my 3800 leSabre at 150,000 miles. I use mostly good brand fuels. However, I had used a fuel discount at the local fast market to buy a fillup for the leSabre. A few miles later was when the slight miss appeared idling for a few seconds. Then couple hundred miles later at 80 mph it gave a quick cut out, miss or full cut out. Then a few hundred miles later a little more and finally set a #6 cylinder miss. Finally, my shadetree mechanic neighbor and I took out the #6 injector which had lots of material clogging the intake. Cleaned it and switch with #4 injector and no further problems.
I think my problem was caused by that quick market fuel fillup.
So when the dealer wanted to clean, was that a removal and clean each injector? Or was that where they run a strong chemical cleaner through the line on the engine, with the fuel tank disconnected, to dissolve gunk in the injector?
