If memory is correct it should be driven by the serpentine belt, which runs through one of the engine mounts. To change the belt you'll need to support the engine (by something other than the oil pan) and pull the engine mount. == here is another opinion== First you have to remove the belt to the alternator then you can remove the belt to the supercharger.to do this you will need a 19/32" socket and breakerbar or long ratchet.Put ratchet on belt tensioner nut and pull toward front of car then pull belt off.There is a separate ttensioner for each belt.

Ck my answer at "do you really need a super charger in a 92 park avenue"

I have a '92 PA Ultra. The Ultra has the supercharger. There are two sets of serpentine belts for this configuration.

You don't. It uses the same oil for lube as the engine. When you change the engine oil, you are changing the supercharger oil. * On the 92 PA ultra, The supercharger is sealed. The oil plug is next to the drive pulley, on the side closest to the firewall. Suck the old oil out with a turkey baster or similar, and refill with a high quality synthetic, or with GM specific Supercharger oil.

It is a special blend oil called "Supercharger Oil" The GM dealers can get it however it will cost around $8-$10 for a 4 oz bottle. Thank you, From www.SuperchargersOnline.com

Can anyone tell me why my new battery goes dead in my 1997 Buick Ultra Park Ave?

The Buick Park Avenue line is known for its smooth ride. The suspension is an air ride, giving a soft floating feel.

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.

It still uses R134a, which is still available.

I have a 92 PA with supercharger, so I suspect it would be the same. You need to relax the spring on the tensioner pulley. I found that a ratchet socket wrench will help to do this. Once the tension is released the belt can be slipped off all the other pulleys. There is a diagram on the front of the car to show how a new belt goes back on. You need to relax the tensioner once again to get the belt back on.

No, it is an Ultra which means it is a supercharged 3.8L V6 and the 1995 Regal was a non-supercharged only so no. The supercharged models had an HD transmission and the Regal had the "regular verison". the transmission for the ultra was the 4t65e

User Avatar

you CAN remove it and replace it with a regular intake, however the car will run like sh!t. The supercharged engine has a lower compression ratio and withour boost it will not run well. If you want to get rid of the supercharger (why would you) you have to get rid of the entire engine....or to make things much simplier the whole car.

The Buick that was supercharged was called the Ultra. On the engine there is another unit mounted on top of the engine. It is driven by a separate belt from the drive shaft. The engine without the supercharger has only one serpentine belt.

User Avatar

It might be the supercharger going bad. The supercharger has a little coupler that is located in between the supercharger nose and the main body. This coupler is located inside and once it starts to wear out it will start making a clunk sound. You can replace the coupler, replace the nose, or rebuild the whole supercharger.
