My 1993 Buick Le Sabre idles crazy and it stalls randomly. Sometimes it will start right back up and sometimes it takes 20 min, 2 hours, or sometimes 2 days. It was my moms before it was mine and she said it had the fuel filter and pump replaced. Ever since the fuel gauge doesn't work. I was thinking of replacing them again but I'm not sure that is the problem.


The fuel gauge is a problem created at the pump change. Foryour current problem, I suggest you have the mass air flow sensor chk'd. It will cause the symtoms if defefective or dirty. Good Luck, Ned ... Buick LeSabre

I have rechecked the fuel pressure with the new pump and it is perfect. However when I checked for spark (with a ignition tester) there

My 2004 Saturn Vue 6 cyl will at times not start. It is not getting gas, first thought was the fuel pump, however after its sits for a few hours it will start. I know its a fuel problem and changed the relay for the pump. This vehicle has two pumps in a saddle tank. Could it be just a filter issue?? and or why will it start sometimes, and then not start at all, wait a few hours and then it starts. I have always assumed that if a pump goes bad its gone.
