Save Some

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION See Figures 3, 4, 5 and 6 On these vehicles, you probable need a 5/8 in. spark plug socket to remove the plugs. A set of spark plugs usually requires replacement after about 20,000-30,000 miles (32,000-48,000 km), depending on your style of driving. On some later model vehicles, the replacement interval is 100,000 miles (160,000 km). In normal operation plug gap increases about 0.001 in. (0.03mm) for every 300 miles (4000 km). As the gap increases, the plug's voltage requirement also increases. It requires a greater voltage to jump the wider gap and about two to three times as much voltage to fire the plug at high speeds than at idle. The improved air/fuel ratio control of modern fuel injection combined with the higher voltage output of modern ignition systems will often allow an engine to run significantly longer on a set of standard spark plugs, but keep in mind that efficiency will drop as the gap widens (along with fuel economy and power). When you're removing spark plugs, work on one at a time. Don't start by removing the plug wires all at once, because, unless you number them, they may become mixed up. Take a minute before you begin and number the wires with tape. Disconnect the negative battery cable, and if the vehicle has been run recently, allow the engine to thoroughly cool. If necessary, remove the retainer, then lift the engine cover off for access to the spark plugs and wires. Fig. 3: Exploded view of the engine cover mounting Carefully twist the spark plug wire boot 1/2 turn in each direction to loosen it, then pull upward and remove the boot from the plug. Be sure to pull on the boot and not on the wire, otherwise the connector located inside the boot may become separated. Fig. 4: Twist the spark plug boot 1/2 turn, then disconnect the wire from the plug by pulling on the boot Using compressed air, blow any water or debris from the spark plug well to assure that no harmful contaminants are allowed to enter the combustion chamber when the spark plug is removed. If compressed air is not available, use a rag or a brush to clean the area. Remove the spark plugs when the engine is cold, if possible, to prevent damage to the threads. If removal of the plugs is difficult, apply a few drops of penetrating oil or silicone spray to the area around the base of the plug, and allow it a few minutes to work. Using a spark plug socket that is equipped with a rubber insert to properly hold the plug, turn the spark plug counterclockwise to loosen and remove the spark plug from the bore. Fig. 5: Use a ratchet with a spark plug socket to loosen ... Fig. 6: ... and remove the spark plug from the cylinder head Inspect the spark plug boot for tears or damage. If a damaged boot is found, the spark plug wire must be replaced. Using a wire feeler gauge, check and adjust the spark plug gap. When using a gauge, the proper size should pass between the electrodes with a slight drag. The next larger size should not be able to pass while the next smaller size should pass freely. Carefully thread the plug into the bore by hand. If resistance is felt before the plug is almost completely threaded, back the plug out and begin threading again. In small, hard to reach areas, an old spark plug wire and boot could be used as a threading tool. The boot will hold the plug while you twist the end of the wire and the wire is supple enough to twist before it would allow the plug to crossthread. Carefully tighten the spark plug. If the plug you are installing is equipped with a crush washer, seat the plug, then tighten about 1/4 turn to crush the washer. If you are installing a tapered seat plug, tighten the plug to specifications provided by the vehicle or plug manufacturer. On these engines, aluminum heat shields are used over the spark plug boots on cylinders located near the exhaust tubing. Make sure the heat shield are fully seated during installation. Apply a small amount of silicone dielectric compound to the end of the spark plug lead or inside the spark plug boot to prevent sticking, then install the boot to the spark plug and push until it clicks into place. The click may be felt or heard, then gently pull back on the boot to assure proper contact. If necessary, position the engine cover, then secure it in place using the retainer. Connect the negative battery cable

Recall List for the 2000 Buick LeSabre

Official recalls have been issued for the 2000 Buick LeSabre by the NHTSA. The complete details of all recalls are listed below, along with what they cover and the recommended solutions. Recalls don't cost you anything to get fixed, but most are time-limited, so if your car is affected you should call your local Buick service department immediately! If you have questions about a recall, write down your VIN & then call Buick customer service. 2000 Buick LeSabre FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:DELIVERY NHTSA Campaign #04V090000 Date Announced: FEBRUARY 24, 2004 Vehicles Affected: 910,873 Summary: On certain passenger vehicles equipped with 3800 V6 (L36) engines and certain delphi fuel pressure regulators, the regulators have a much higher than usual rate of fuel leaks. A leak can allow fuel to enter the intake manifold through a vacuum line. If the engine does not start when cranked, the fuel from the leaking regulator and a mistimed spark can cause a backfire. Consequence: The backfire can rupture the intake manifold. The rupture of the intake manifold can displace a fuel line, pulling an injector out of place, and causing a fuel leak and possible fire. Actions: Dealers will install new fuel pressure regulators with improved diaphragms. The recall will be conducted in phased mailings. Phase 1 began on June 30, 2004, and phase 2 began on September 30, 2004. Owners should contact Buick at 1-866-608-8080, Oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537, or Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #04V090000 » 2000 Buick LeSabre SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:FOUNDATION COMPONENTS NHTSA Campaign #00V114000 Date Announced: APRIL 17, 2000 Vehicles Affected: 8,132 Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. Some of these vehicles have internal fluid leaks in the brake hydraulic control unit. Consequence: When the rear brake proportioning, antilock brake, traction control, or stability control feature is activated in some driving situations, the feature may not perform as designed. Actions: Dealers will inspect the ABS hydraulic modulator unit and if necessary, replace the hydraulic modulator. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #00V114000 » 2000 Buick LeSabre EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS NHTSA Campaign #99V355000 Date Announced: DECEMBER 17, 1999 Vehicles Affected: 35,725 Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. These vehicles do not conform to the requirements of FMVSS no. 108, "lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment." The head lamp adjustment device horizontal adjuster may not move the head lamp reflector when the shaft is rotated in a normal manner during aiming. Consequence: Driver visibility may be impaired increasing the risk of a crash. Actions: An insert containing instructions for optically aiming the headlamps will be provided to owners for the owner's manual. Owners should follow the procedure in the insert for headlamp aim adjustment, rather than using the horizontal vhad indicator. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #99V355000 » 2000 Buick LeSabre STEERING:LINKAGES:TIE ROD ASSEMBLY NHTSA Campaign #99V301000 Date Announced: OCTOBER 29, 1999 Vehicles Affected: 1,284 Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. The inner tie rod nuts are loose and can result in separation of a tie rod. Consequence: Separation of a tie rod can cause unexpected steering input increasing the risk of a crash. Actions: Dealers will check and adjust the vehicle toe-in and tighten the inner tie rod nuts to the specified torque. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #99V301000 » 2000 Buick LeSabre SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:POWER ASSIST:VACUUM NHTSA Campaign #99V238000 Date Announced: AUGUST 27, 1999 Vehicles Affected: 988 Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. The brake booster to pedal assembly attachment nuts may be loose. Consequence: If these nuts are loose, the brake pedal may be low, the assembly may be loose, the brakes may not release, and if the nuts back completely off, braking may be lost. Also fume and water intrusion to the passenger compartment can occur. Actions: Dealers will replace any missing brake booster to brake pedal assembly nuts and tighten all four (4) nuts to specified torque.
