I have a 1997 Buick La Sabre and it was doing the same thing and we changed one of the crankshaft sensors and it still stalled when we were driving, but it would re-start. We changed both the Mass Airflow Sensor and the Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor this week and now it doesn't even stall. Besides the alternator making some pretty bad sounds and needing changed, it runs great again. Good Luck.

Originally my 1997 buick la sabre would drive fine. I would stop to go into the store or go into a restaurant for lunch and when I returned, it wouldn't start. Then it started stalling when I was driving down the highway with the gas pedal depressed or also at stop signs and red lights when I was braking. It would also die when I let it coast on the highway because the engine is able to maintain a constant rate of speech with little or no additional gas. We changed one of the crankshaft sensors and there are 2, so I am not sure which one, and then it would still stall, but at least you could shift into neutral and it would re-start. This week after almost 2 years of the car stalling, we changed the mass airflow sensor and the manifold absolute pressure sensor and it doesn't stall anymore. Good Luck.

Part of the exhaust manifold on this year car is plastic and this will cause you to have coolant in the exhaust manifold when it finally melts. They used to be all metal in 1996 and earlier models, but although it would seem like a design flaw to make a part of the car which has to withstand really high temperatures out of metal, you just have to replace it about every 150,000 miles. Also they changed the design of the manifold in 1997 so that the metal ones from previous years cannot be used as a replacement.

In my car is was one of the crankshaft sensors. There are 2 and my regular mechanic did it and I never asked which one it was I was just glad it started again.

My 1997 buick la sabre started off my not starting after it had been parked a while. Like running into walmart or going to lunch at a restaurant. That was one of the crankshaft sensors. Then it started dying while we were driving. That was the mass airflow sensor and the manifold absolute pressure sensor. We had already tried to blow it out with the "fix it can" you can buy in the auto parts stores to help clean it, but we really just needed a new mass airflow sensor. Now it not only starts, but stays running.

Originally the car died occasionally when in gear and eventually it died a lot when in gear and often wouldn't start after it had been parked for a little while. Eventually it wouldn't restart after it had been parked for a while really often. We found the problem with not starting was one of the crankshaft sensors, there are 2 and I don't know which one. The stalling problem was the mass airflow sensor and the manifold absolute pressure sensor. Now it runs and doesn't die.

It was my crankshaft sensor. Took care of the problem.

After my car is driven for about 20 minutes it will cut off and will restart after about 10-15 minutes; I've been reading about the crankshaft sensors, where on the engine are they located?

Where is the crankshaft sensor located on a 1992 Buick LeSabre?

right between the crankshaft pulley and the AC compressor.
