If you have plenty of fluid it could be the power steering pump itself going bad or it could be the rack and pinion assembly.

Yea, the 1993 Buick Lesabre does have a fuse for the horn. However, there could be other reasons why the horn doesn't work, the clockspring or relay could be out.

It could be the steering wheel rotation sensor needs replacing. That's what was wrong with mine. It was done by the dealer so I have no idea how to do it.

I have a 2000 Buick Century costom and I replaced it but it leaks what could be wrong

Could be a burnt out bulb or a bad flasher unit.

Check for burnt out bulbs and could be a bad flasher as well.

take it to a transmission shop. The problem is in the tcc valve body.

The power steering reservoir on 2000 - 2005 Buick Lesabres is located below the alternator between the firewall and engine. This applies to 2000 - 2005 Imps with the 3800 as well. At least on the Lesabre you can use your right arm to access the small space below the alternator to get to the power steering cap; you will be REQUIRED to have a long funnel to fill the reservoir if needs be. As you will observe, GM could have done a better job on locating this. Good luck!

most of the time no, however that being said, if the fireing order were REALLY messed up it could result in a severe backfire or crankcase ignition and damage the engine. most of the time it just belches and wont run though.

Could be bad headlights, foggy or dirty headlight casing, poor power output (bad battery or alternator).

Could be a number of issues, from mildew to coolant. You should ask a trusted service on diagnosing the issue.

Check your battery cables. Some computerized vehicles have to be reset. Disconnect the battery for about 5 minutes and then reconnect.

I just fixed a similar problem on my 95 LeSabre, got info from this website. http://www.imcool.com/articles/aircondition/fix_vacuum_line.htm

The radiator drain plug should be close to the bottom of the radiator facing the engine. It could be a wing nut, or could be the type that is turned by a ratchet and extension.

It is for the EGR. Could be dirty or needs to be replaced. New part could cost $140 but would most likely fix the issue.

U loosen up the selector linkage 4 the transmission so the key will return 2 center... Sometimes... Or, the problem could be that the wheels are pushed up against something, preventing the steering wheel from unlocking. In this casem, you have to muscle the steering wheel to get the key out. Or, the ignition switch itself, which has nylon gears that can strip and break, has gone bad. To replace it, the steering wheel and other pieces have to come off.

You would have to pull the gas tank to get to the fuel pump I think. This is not an impossible job at home but could be very difficult.
