i have sort of the same problem and there are two reason i can think of that i am attempting to fix, 1) vacuum leak somewhere in your engine, 2) spark plugs.

Maybe it is a bad Crank Sensor.


That could be possibility but it might be the torque-converter as well. It depends on the nature of the jerk and your driving habits. I'd say if you step on the gas even a little bit on uphills it could be the torque-converter, this jerk is normal depending on how much you step into it. A good giveaway would be to watch your RPM's, if they climb...then stall for a few and then jump very rapidly, this is most likely the torque converter. Many people think that when this happens they are shifting, but in most cases it's just the torque converter.

How do you change the low beam headlight bulbs in as 2001 Buick LeSabre?

To change the low beam headlight on the 2001 Lesabre, the headlight assembly must first be removed from the car. It is really quite simple to do. There are two bolts on the top of the assembly that must be removed - that is all! The entire assembly comes out and gives easy access to the low beam bulb. Give it a 1/4 counterclockwise turn to remove it. Plus in the new one (#9006) and reverse the procedure.

How does a molecule become polar?

A molecule becomes polar when the elements form polar bonds--bonds with a slight negative and a slight positive charge--that are uneven due to the structure of the molecule. The structure prevents the dipoles from cancelling out, which gives the molecule a net dipole and makes it polar.
