1992 Buick Park Avenue Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1992 Buick Park Avenue based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The mass air flow or crankshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to stall intermittently. Proper diagnoses will be necessary to determine the cause of any stalling condition.
One or more heater & AC (HVAC) air delivery and/or temperature mode door actuator may fail. This can result in incorrect air delivery or temperature. If this occurs, fault code(s) stored in the HVAC control module should be available to assist with diagnoses.
Problems with anti-theft systems using the raised-chip key can prevent the car from starting. The wires in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder tend to break. The key and ignition lock cylinder should be replaced to correct this condition.
The mode and temperature door actuators may fail causing improper air flow or temperature output from the heating and AC (HVAC) system.
The outer tie rod ends on the steering linkage may wear causing excessive free play in the steering and uneven tire wear. If the worn tie rod ends are replaced, the wheel alignment should be checked and adjusted as necessary.
The spark plugs should be replaced every 30,000 miles and the spark plug boots should be checked for hot spots and cracks.
A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.
