How do replace the starter on a 1990 Buick Park Avenue?

You have to first take off the guard to the starter which only has one bolt. Once you take off the one bolt you have to slide the bottom of the guard toward the passenger side. Once you have the guard out there is a bolt above the last bolt you removed its a 15mm or at least on mine it is. Then on the opposite side towards the trunk there is another bolt this one is longer it as well use's the same socket. Once you have that bolt out, let the rear end of the starter to fall slightly and then pull the starter toward the passenger side.

Note: make sure you take off all the electrical parts off the end and make sure you disconnect the battery first before doing anything.

Where is the thermostat located on a Buick Electra?

It's best to know the year, model, and engine information. That being said, here's my view... The thermostat will most likely be on the intake manifold, where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. The "housing" is kind of a "elbow" that connects the hose to the manifold. Two bolts will hold the housing in place, and there may be any number of things stuck on top of it. There will also be a smaller hose, on the housing, that connects to the water pump. It's actually rather easy to open this housing, and replace the thermostat. Don't be surprised if the housing does not come loose easily. Old gaskets can hold pretty tightly. I normall just LIGHTLY tap the housing, with a hammer, until it comes loose. Hope this helps!

Why would a starter just click when you try to start a 1990 Buick Electra after you have replaced the starter?

Either the battery is bad or the connections at the battery or starter are corroded or loose. Was the starer bad to begin with?, Can the engine be turned over by hand? Did you buy a cheeseball starter motor like ones autozone sells?

The fuses are located behind the faceplate that covers the headlight switch and two wheel switches. To access the fuses, look for two black round plastic "screws" that you can turn with your fingers that are located on the very left side of the dash, hidden by the door when it is closed.
