Why won't my car start. Starting/Stalling issues.

Asked by Nov 11, 2010 at 07:13 PM about the 1997 Buick LeSabre

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 97 Buick Lesabre. I just tried to start my car and it acted like it was out of gas so I got 2 gallons of gas and put it in there. Now my car occasionally will start but shuts off almost instantly after. I recently hit a tire on the interstate it beat on my undercarriage pretty badly. I have been hearing a noise like a bang on the back of my trunk, like someone is closing a door right by my car while driving and sometimes right after I shut off my car. Any ideas or what other info might be needed?

1 Answer


better crawl under to look over the gas tank/fuel lines under the rear seat & also check the exhaust for big hits/dents.
