Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Buick Lesabre 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 49000 miles
Hi, I have a problem with my 1998 Buick Lesabre periodically stalling out while driving. Sometimes I was able to put the car in neutral and restart it while still driving.
However, a few days ago I went to start the car and it started up, idled very rough, then backfired, then stalled. Now it will only crank, then start up and idle very roughly (sounds like a growling noise) and then stall after a few seconds.
I was told to change the crank shaft sensor, the fuel filter, and/or fuel pump. I was told to start with the sensor first.
Can someone please advise me of the sensor location and/or whether or not it is something I can replace myself? And is there a place where I can locate a diagram?
