We are having a...

We are having a problem, at timres, with our 20012 Buick LeSabre starting at times. It will take several tries to actually start, after which it runs fine. I don't think it's the battery. This doesn't happen all the time, but when it does, it really concerns uis. It only has 87,000 miles on it, so it's not worn out.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Yes, all the electrics work. When it starts, it runs fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your LeSabre?

2001

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your LeSabre yourself? What have you tried so far?

I haven't tried anything yet. Not sure of wher the problem may be.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have a feeling the problem may be in the fuel filter system. When trying to start, it 'shakes' a bit.
