One alternator replacement.
Changed front sway bar link ends - badly worn.
Replaced heater blower motor gasket - exhaust smell seeped into passenger compartment via porous gasket - not unusual for any high mileage car.
Replaced in-tank fuel filter, sender unit, pump. Car would stall or chug on hard turns if the fuel was low. Most of this maintenance was preventative, but they changed the design of the fuel strainer to rectify this problem. Repair worked great.
Changed all positive wires going from the battery terminal to the main fuse bus, from the battery terminal to the starter, and from the battery terminal to the alternator. Car would randomly die while driving. A rotten batter cable from the terminal to the main fuse bus was to blame. Not unusual for 238k miles.
Replaced front transmission mount. Broke as a result of hard driving style :)
This car has been in my family since the day it was purchased in 1991 as a 1992 model year car. This vehicle has been nothing, but a pleasure to own and drive, at 230,000 miles I intend to drive this car from New Jersey to Arizona in december of 2003 and back again in may of 2004. I have absolute confidence in the condition of the vehicle. All repairs are normal repairs for a high mileage car. The transmission is getting a little bit weak, and since I want to keep the car I will most likely replace it with a rebuilt unit this winter. If this car died tomorrow and I had the money to buy a brand new Buick, I would probably buy another 1992. The Gran Touring package makes this car handle like a European sports car, and it has plenty of power to boot. I can't say enough about my 1992 LeSabre I absolutely love this car and would buy another one in a second.
