Default New from FL - 1993 Buick LeSabre

Hi All,

I am the proud owner of a 1993 LeSabre with just over 73,000 miles on it. I am/will be doing quite a bit of work on it since it has been sitting for the last couple of years at least.

Even though I am new I already learned a tremendous amount on this forum and want to say thank you. I look forward to contributing as I learn.

Welcome to the site. Great mileage for a older car. You'll have to post up some pictures of your ride.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. I am located in SW Florida but originally from Michigan. The car came from a Salvation Army charity auction so I don't know a lot as far as its history is concerned. Working on a car this old with no rust is a privelege - not how it was up north

I drove it home but discovered a leak in the upper intake manifold which I believe has been there for a long time. There is also oil in the coolant but not vice versa and compression was low in several cylinders so I have progressed to taking both heads off and am learning a lot as I go along. I suspect the car has not run well for some time but I am determined to get it in excellent running condition again! I am sure your help will be needed and, again, I really appreciate it.

I have so far not done any work to the exterior but enclose a photo anyway. As soon as I have the engine sorted out I will clean it up and post photos. I have replaced the headliner as the original was in bad shape. Otherwise the car is very clean and certainly worth getting back on the road.
