Having intermintent starting issues. (buick le sabre 2000)
It all began when i let the tank get low on gas. It started on a humid/moist night - believe condensation in gas.
Then filled the car up and the problems went away. That was 3 weeks ago.
However, all of a sudden when in the garage cold starts are good, but when outside to start on humid/moist nights it becomes an issue.
Sometimes it just starts up normal outside. Other time it has been like this..
-*one time* dash and inside lights came on, the fuel meter read 3/4 tank then for one second the fuel meter went down to empty and dash lights went off, then back to normal, the car never needed a key restart, engined stayed on
- i'd hold the key to get it to crank and i can't even hear it cranking, and then it just instantly starts
- it sort of starts, lights/dash all stay on , but car didn't start
- when it started it sounded like thunking
WHen the car does start, the drive is good.
most time driven since one of these starts is a days worth of two hour constant city driving. Never overheats, never stalls, no rough idle.
