Roll the dice for 10thou more miles with 02 Lesabre?

Asked by Jan 17, 2017 at 01:39 AM about the 2002 Buick LeSabre Custom Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This is a followup to my first original Q re my 02 leSabre.  Yes, thank YOU I have read that "At 91,000 you're right at the point where the intake manifold gaskets fail"--and I DO wonder what the going $ rate oughta be for that?! Does that require opening up the engine and extensive labor$$? Since it's gaskets, ie rubber lining to stop leaking, and they ARE failing, will they eventually just--ugh-totally fail and what then, ?, all the oil sprays all over the engine and...I just had the lower control arms in front replaced (freakin speed bumps!) for $600 and had the first-ever synthetic oil--I 'feel' like my Sabretooth maybe doesn't like synthetic? and I would LIKE to get about another 10 thousand miles out of this Buick. I got in in 2005 for 10G with extended warranty 3yrs/36000miles and it has worked out well. In 2018, will have $ to put another 10G into a Buick with 45G miles on it, Glad for any and all replies--this is way more interesting and intelligent conversation than the dating website pof dot com. ha ha But I need for the car to be reliable, as I am a Special Needs attendant and it is transportation and even with Allstate towing I don't wanna be at the side of the road. Thanks!!

The average cost is between 1,000.00 and 1,500.00, below is a link you may wantvto read. I not found of synthetic oil myself and I'm sure you can get another 10,000, give her a complete tuneup, oil change and I would flush the cooling system and check the condition of the transmission fluid. Good luck

Yup, drive it till it dies, repair costs can sometimes be cheaper than car payments. Do the math.
