To replace the serpentine belt on a V6 3800 series non-supercharged motor, you must jack up the motor and remove a motor mount. Before going any further make sure that the factory belt diagram sticker is still somewhere under the hood; if not, make a detailed diagram of the path of the belt. You must then use a breaker bar with a socket (I believe 13/64") and pull it toward the front of the car to release the belt tensioner. Put the new belt on, tighten it, put the mount back on, and lower the jack. Personally I believe that this one is a tough job for the average person with limited tools, and may be better to bring it to a mechanic. **Driving without a belt can cause the motor to overheat, will cut power steering, and will not recharge the battery, so you should probably get a tow**

you do not have too remove the mount. in a none supercharge 3800 motor

The size of the engine in a Buick Park Avenue from the year 2000 is a 3.8 litre V6 engine. It is the same in both the "base" model and the "ultra" Model.

If they are the exact same engine (3800 tuned port injection) then yes.

The oil filter on the 1995 Buick Park Avenue is located on the driver's side in the engine compartment. The filter is close to the firewall on the driver's side.

The horn location for a 1999 Buick Park Avenue is along the front of the engine compartment, near the right headlight. It is directed outward to help the sound travel further.

For model year 1989 General Motors did not produce the Buick Park Avenue. The soonest production date to 1989 was the 1991 Park Avenue. The 1991 Park Avenue was offered in 3800 engine in supercharged or naturally aspirated. The part numbers for electronic control module (ECM) or "computer" will vary based on the exact engine for model year 1991s.
