Buick Skylark Problems

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.

The heater core under the right side of the dashboard may leak engine coolant which can puddle on the passenger front floor. The loss of coolant may cause an engine overheating condition. Our technicians tell us that removal of the dash board is necessary to replace the heater on these vehicles.

A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. This can result in an engine overheating condition. A leaking water pump will require replacement.

VERY SMOOTH RIDE. PICKS UP QUICK, ESPECIALLY AFTER 70 AND ON UP. I DONT KNOW EXACTLLY HOW FAST IM GOING WHILE AXCELERATING ABOVE 85 MPH. THE ODOMETER BURIES ITSELF DOWN INTO THE DASH DISPLAY. PRETTY SCARY BUT PRETTY COOL TOO!
