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.
I believe that the only difference for the Ultra is that there is a second belt for the supercharger.
overheat, will cut Power Steering, and will not recharge the battery, so you should probably get a tow**
I just replaced my belt, and every mechanic told me i would have to remover the motor mount, but on mine there was a sleeve on the bottom bracket (the one going through the belt) I'm not sure if all park avenues have this sleeve or not. But if it does, all you have to do is remove the passenger side plastice fender housing and you can access that lower bracket with a star socket. All you have to do is remove the bolt with a star socket and the sleeve will slip off and then you can slip the old belt of and the new one on. This doesn't require jacking the engine up (unless you want to remove the tire for more mobility) and it shouldn't require an engine lift, which is what you need in the above mentioned answer. I'm not sure if all models have this sleeve or not but try it before thinking about removing the engine mount, because it saves you a lot of work (such as not having to move the power steering pump) and a lot of money.
I have a '92 PA Ultra. The Ultra has the supercharger. There are two sets of serpentine belts for this configuration.
No the Buick Park Ave Ultra requires premium fuel
what is the down side of the 1997 buick park avenue
It says Buick Ultra... = Supercharged
It is, was, and always will be a sedan...
The best way to replace shocks and struts on a 2001 Buick Park Avenue Ultra is to follow the owner's manual instructions. The parts can be purchased at most local auto parts stores such as Auto Zone. Remove the old parts and refer to the manual to install the new parts.
The 1993 Buick Park Avenue Ultra produced 205 horsepower and 260 lb-feet of torque.
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 mount has one leag that is longer than the others, it is a two piece design. removing that one bolt will allow you to feed the belt through without removing the mount bracket in its entirety.
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.
245 Hp 265 Ft lbs torque
It still uses R134a, which is still available.
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

See the related link below.
un hook the battery and let it sit for 30 min
It should be 8 bolts/4 each. let out air. Support rear weight of car, remove & replace. You can probably use the same air lines. if not replace & route in similar manner. Air them up & you're done.
in your gas tank.which would need to be droped down to see it.
