'02 Buick LeSabre starts but won't stay running

Asked by Aug 30, 2017 at 11:53 AM about the 2002 Buick LeSabre Custom Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My '02 Buick LeSabre  will start but won't stay
running. If it's been sitting and is cold it will run for
approx 5 minutes then dies. It will restart but won't
stay running.  I've replace the fuel filter and part of
the fuel line. Would like advise before I purchase a
fuel pump. I can hear the fuel pump operating and
it sounds normal.
