    I am having some other problems with the 1994 Buick LeSabre. I have looked at many post and threads and have not seen anything about paint sort of peeling or popping off the car. I have seen cars of this era and earlier from the big three makers with large areas of missing paint. The undercoat seems very good but the paint is coming off a little bit all of the time. But the strange thing is that the paint that is still on does not come off easily.
    Does someone have a good trick for removing the paint that is left?? This car is in good shape for its years and I would like to get the old paint that is left off of the car so it can be repainted.

    Hi to all this is my first post. I have a 1994 Buick Le Sabre. It runs well except for a developing problem with Service Engine Light and is progressively more difficult to start in cold weather. Sometimes we see 30+ mpg onthe highway at 70. I have replaced all fluids, filters(except trans) spark plugs, wires and o2 sensor, temp sensor, PC valve, battery, alternator, master brake cylinder and a couple of other things. Took it to a shop as the AC was not working well. They found : a bad connection to the engine temperature sensor and a dirty air mass sensor fixed them. They reset all of the codes and said iif the SE light came on again, likely the PROM was bad. The car ran stronger but the SE light came on again. It is still intermittent as it was before. Mileage stayed about the same as before.
    Does anyone know what is the best scanner to get for that year?
    Are there after-market chips to replace the PROM ?
    Can the 1994 be upgraded to 1996 or 1997 standards?
