Buick Park Avenue Problems

Fuel Gauge Needle Stuck on Wrong Side of "Empty Stop"

Do to a low or erratic voltage condition, the fuel gauge needle may "jump" around and become stuck on the back side of the "stop" below the "empty" indicator. This does not mean the gauge is broken. If the gauge cover is removed and the needle is gently moved back around to the correct side of the pin, the gauge will again function normally. When the needle is moved back to the correct position, the electrical problem that caused the needle to jump in the first place must be corrected or the needle may jump around again. The most common problems that cause this condition are a weak battery or corrosion on the battery cable ends.

Engine would not start

I've had an intermittent no-start condition on my 2000 Buick Park Ave. This started happening on occasion and was nerve racking. Took it to my local mechanic shop and he replaced the crankshaft position sensor which solved the problem. Found the problem with the sensor 'A'(18X24X) out of range. Code PO336-CKP. in the computer. Hope this info will help others who have this problem.

Engine Vacuum Leak From EGR Tube

The EGR tube may develop an engine vacuum leak causing the engine to run lean. The Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate.

Buick Park Avenue Reviews

Ive owned two buick park avenues. A 1994 and a 1995. Both beautiful cars. Such a smooth drive, gets great gas mileage for the size of the car, V6 engine, and so much space to spread out compared to newer cars. My dad got the first one for me and my brothers for its extremely large engine and strong frame for more protection if we ever got in a car crash. Great for teen drivers. Both buicks h...
