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.

Reported by rlyonk for the Buick Park Avenue

at around 130,000 miles transmission began to slip when slowing and then accelerating rapidly. At 182,000 mi. Trans. Started making a growling sound, I had it replaced with a GM. Factory remanufactured unit for $ 3,200 still going strong at 225,00 mi..
May have been repairable if I had taken it in when the slipping started.
