1998 Buick Park Avenue Problems

HVAC Mode/Temperature Door Actuators May Fail

The mode and temperature door actuators may fail causing improper air flow or temperature output from the heating and AC (HVAC) system.

Engine Stalling Due to Mass Air Flow/Crankshift Position Sensor Failure

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.

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.

I have a 1998 Buick Park Avenue and the A/C was working but now it puts out warm air on driver's side and cold air on passenger side? Hope someone can give me an answer.
I have a 98 buick park avenue. I was driving and it cut off on me. I replaced the battery and the starter because they were both tested and was bad. I tried to start my car and all it makes is a clicking noise. What could be the problem? I checked my oil and it was fine. There is no oil and water mixing. What could make my car not crank? Please help!!!!
