2003 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.

We owned a 2000 Buick Park Avenue first, drove it over 150k, regret ever getting rid of it... Replaced it with a 2003 Buick Park Avenue, it's at over 150k now and still running like new, bullet-proof! Great vehicle, proven motor. Just have to keep up on the maintenance and fluid changes.
had this car for 3 1/2 weeks runs good need to change fuel pump
