In this video I chase down a P0102 on a 2001 Buick LeSabre. Please refer to your service manual for the proper repair procedure.

    Love your videos ! You are a Master Technician and a “NERD” 👍

    Thank you for that very informative tutorial on the MAF sensor. Did it dawn on you, with all due respect, that the lady's car had a power steering leak? The reservoir sounds like a typical Ford (as GM ones rarely leak). I'd know (and be able to diagnose) that loud whine blocks away. Also, Dorman made very high quality wheel parts for decades (studs, lugs, nuts, etc. since the 1st half of the 20th century). I'm surprised that you have a predisposition against their parts (quality). Anyway, it's nice of you to take the time to share your expertise on this critical part…

    I have an 08 Buick lucerne that use to stall while driving, then eventually it would only start for a bit then die, then it would not crank, I replaced fuel pump, center fuse block because of fuel pump relay issue and I still have this problem….. any help would be greatly appreciated. FUCK BUICK

    These Buicks are such good cars

    This helped a lot. Thanks dude

    Another great video Eric. I own a 02 Buick Regal ls, and love my car. Changed out the MAF sensor and their not cheap. Ive done all my own work. Undid what GM messed up. I take pride in working on my vehicle every time I lift up the hood. Its videos like your Eric that gave me the confidence to do my own repairs. Thank you, and keep the humor and great videos coming.

    The power steering racket bout drove me crazy.😂

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joel Stolarski says:

    I just disconnected mine, and car actually runs better without it. Was actually getting tired of looking at the check engine light. I bought the special mass air cleaner, which wasn't cheap, and it didn't fix it. Should have just got one on Eaby when they were $11 shipped, with no tax. Now with tax, it's gonna cost as much as the useless spray cost.

    That power steering pump is about as annoying to listen to as running your finger nails across a chalkboard. lol

    These arm chair mechanics telling you to check the p/s fluid… Really??? Thanks for sharing your time and knowledge… Peace

    I have same car and have 275K on it. Bought new. Always kept up with the required
    maintenance. I would buy it again. Has the 3.8 bullet proof engine.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew C says:

    So i have a similar vehicle im working on. Thats got me stumped eric. 05 pontiac grand am. Mass sensor keeps shorting out. Have put three in there in the same day. All short out. I have 12v signal and a good ground. Yellow wire 5v is there. The power runs to the fuse box to fuse 10a with is a shared fuse with ignition. There is also an ignition code on in scan tool. Could the ignition be causing the problem or should i look else where. Kinda at my wits end with the car now.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Markus Daniels says:

    To heck with the MAF the car power steering is crap

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Rico says:

    Another good reason to live in the south we don't have to deal with all that rust on vehicles. Good info in all your videos, watching from ATL

    please pour some old motor oil on any of the external moving parts.

    For some reason, some of these aftermarket mass airflow sensors don't like my 99 Regal. They aren't technically faulty, but the engine doesn't seem to receive them well at all. The engine still feels like its lacking power. I have a sensor from the local Buick dealer that came out of a junkyard Regal (one a few years' newer than mine) and the car flies like a rocket so long as I have it installed. If I put the Delphi mass airflow sensor in, the engine performance feels de-rated. No, there won't be an engine light or MAF sensor code, just the feeling of a de-rated engine. I can put the GM sensor back in and, lo and behold, the full performance (or really close to it) has returned. It's as if the ECM knows it's not a GM sensor, so it's not going to put out 100% power. Maybe I'm crazy but I can tell when the engine isn't as fast as it was, say, yesterday. Just did all four rotors, plus front and rear brakes, for a whopping $600. I deliver pizza for a living (yes, I drive the Regal for work) so I've gotta have brakes. Oh well, the car is highly reliable so I have no plans to junk it.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Good Name says:

    Eric please tell me you checked the power steering fluid for that lady.. oh and did you try to clean the mass airflow sensor before replacing it?

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Murphy says:

    Put some fluid in that power steering pump. Have you ever done a video of replacing the fuel tank on a Buick LeSabre?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ken R.B. says:

    If the MAF is bad, can it be intermittent? My car drive fine sometimes, but then all of the sudden it will change and it will only idle and when you give it gas it bogs down and conks out.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ken R.B. says:

    What happens if you ride around with the MAF unplugged?

    EXCELENTE INFORMACION……… SALUDOS QUERIDOS AMIGOS.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nina Zemlo says:

    Had similar problem… Find rubber connector to filter cover slides away and opens hole on the bottom of connection. The clamp was tide. Reset the code and drive again!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Wagner says:

    I love ur vids! Always informing! I just bought a 2003 lesabre with 98,000 miles. Exellant condition! Runs awesome but idling about 600 or 700rpm. I thought thats a hair to low. Doesn't stall and no codes or lights. Would it be wise to just replace map, maf and air intake sensor as preventive maintenance? Can I just blow some mass air flow cleaner in the mass air flow sensor?These parts are not to expensive anyways. I did clean the iac valve with carb cln and it does seem to be a hair better. It does sometimes take 2 trys to start however, especially when cold. Also, with these types of parts, is it ok to get the off brand( non gm)? Or am I being anal. Thanks much!

    I just recently had that same code on my 2002 Buick Regal I also might have a exhaust leak

    "Comes with tamper proof socket…. You take the doors off your high school bathroom stall"… how random is that?? But true. Lol 😂😂😂😂 Ay coño! Gotta love the SMA quotes!

    Nobody can hear you when the engine is running just so you know

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DIY Dave says:

    That sounds like Scotty's engines on the Enterprise just before he says, "Cap'n, she canna take anymore!!!"

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matt P says:

    I'm surprised you didn't top up the power steering fluid for the lady.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars N V says:

    One of the most annoying sounding cars I've ever heard lol.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wayne Richards says:

    It's not regular oil it's a cleaning fluid that cleans the filter
