What could be the problem if a Buick Park Avenue with 75K miles changes from 1st to 2nd roughly?

CHECK THE TRANSMISSION FILTER FIRST AND THEN CHECK THE MODULATOR

AnswerSounds like the transmission needs servicing. Loose bands cause this condition. AnswerCould be a loose or twisted motor mount too. Have you had the water pump serviced lately? Unskilled repair people loosen the mounts and then they twist when he transmission shifts or when you first accelerate..

Good luck!

AnswerFirst thing you should do is check level and condition of your tranny fluid. AnswerCheck the trans fluid, mine leaked out of the front return line because it was rusted through, I did not catch it till it was too late. 900$ vs 6.00$ hmmm AnswerIF YOU HAVE CHECK ALL THE TIPS ABOVE THAT ARE GOOD TIPS CHECK FOR VACUM LEAKS CAN MAME TRANSMISSION SHIFT ROUGH OR CHECK THE DETENT CABLE MITE BE OUT OF AJUSTMENT WOULD BE MY QUEST ,THE WAY YOU CHECK IT IS BY YOUR THROTTLE CABLE UNDER THE HOOD WHERE HOOKS UP TO CARB OR THROTTLE BODY THE DETENT IS HOOK UP IN THE SAME WAY BUT THE CABLE GOES TO THE TRANS ,SO WHEN PRESSING THE GAS PEDAL IT PULLS THE DETENT CABLE AND BEING AJUSTABLE MAKES IT SHIFT SMOOTH OR HARD

SPARK PLUGS NEED CHANGED. I had the same problem. it will run like new. super smooth.

sorry, but i had to create acct to anwer this ?. i have a 97 PA which had the same problem from 40K miles to 90K miles. the problem is the PCS solenoid (pressure control solenoid). had it changed and solved the problem immediately. quite common for 1997 to 2000 PA's. anyways, having same problem again with 200K miles on car now. will have to replace solenoid again. about $600 job, so be prepared.

How do you charge automobile air conditioning unit?

The compressor has to be running when you charge the unit , and if it is so low that the compressor will not run you must short the switch to make it run while charging . all autos have the same fittings and if you are using the cans you can buy at the store , you must take into account if you have oil in the system, if the oil is low, you must replace it , it has to be compatible with the compressor. you have two fittings , make sure it is the low pressure or suction side to insert the R134 . usually the fittings will not fit the high side . If the air has been with out a charge for sometime you must check for leaks because it may be leaking so bad it will only go in and come back out real quick. This requires that you take it to a dealer or a shop so they can check it out completely . Only the units that are somewhat low should be charged as it may be contaminated inside and will cause compressor failure . Leaks can occur over a 7 to ten year period abnd those leaks are acceptable . In any case bear in mind this is a high pressure system and blindness or physical injury can occur while doing the re-charging. R 12 is not used any more and in cases where it used you must have a license or be certified to work with that refrigerant. A hose adapter is needed to use the cans .

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 could you find an illustration on replacing serpentine belt on '97 Buick Park Avenue?

There should be an illustration in your ownners manual.

Just had mine done.. mechanic had to remove psgr side motor mount to release belt. Not a fun job.

trust me this ne job you want to pay someone to do, you need to lower the engine cradle to remover the PS motor mount,

you could also visit

http://www.just .com/questions/5psw-replacing-serpentine-belt-1998

it is the same for a 97. full illustrations and step by step directions.

you will need an 18mm for the mounts and a 15 mm for the tensioner. it is an involved job but doable for the amateur. just make sure you have the engine supported and that the wood use is very important.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

This isn't a job if you aren't mechanically inclined. I didn't want to have to take the motor mount off, so I found an alternative solution, which involved me taking a reciprocating saw to the lower spacer on the motor mount so that I could slip the belt in underneath. I then used a thick washer to make the difference, and it'll allow me to easily change it in the future.

You will need some specialized tools, mainly (if I remember correctly) a reverse torx bit (just like the impression left by a torx bit). The job took me two days because I was trying to figure things out. Like the OP said, not impossible, but if you aren't sure you can do the job then you will be asking for trouble.

How do you repair the climate control on a 1992 Buick Park Avenue Ultra?

4 how to repair climate controlI have a 95 park ave and my climate control broke and the heat stayed on, so I purchased a new climate control from a used parts place for around $70 bucks and installed it my self, you will need to take off the front dash pannel and unplug the old one and insert the plug into the new one.

The climate control on my 92 PA was not working properly. I found that the vacuum line going through the fire wall had got disconnected. Connecting that solved my problems.

Will 22 inch rims fit a 1994 Buick Park Avenue?

without suspension modification the biggest you can get on a park ave is 20'sAnswerMost likely yes, but be sure to remember that the tire aspect ratio will need to be reduced in order to accomodate the increased rim size.

By the way, why would you want to put 22 inch rims on a vehicle which people 65 and older drive?

Answerbecause people 65 and over aren't on them thangs...22's ya can't lose.

LOL @ that answer!^

so if i put 22s on a park ave it will mess up transmission

Is speed sensor cause to thump noise while slowing down to stop in AT cars?

Answer

A speed sensor wont thump but a speedometer cable might go thump, thump, thump, if it is rubbing against the casing. Also sometimes the transmission will feel as if it thumps when it downshifts.

Could also be a warped brake rotor causing that when stopping.
