SOURCE: Car shakes when @ a complete stop

I have the solution to this problem. The firing order is off. I have an 89 Riviera and had the same problem. The placed the wires as shown in the repair manual, but for some reason that manual was wrong. Now the car purrs like a kitten.
Check the firing order. These cars can still run on 5 cylinders, but you will get the problem you have.

Trust me, this is what's wrong!

We want to put a 1992 Park Ave 3800 motor into a 1999 Pk AV 3800. Is that posssible


the motor may bolt up - the fuel line connections - throttle body wire connections and other wire connections will probably not connect - the main difference is on the top side from heads up on the 2 motors - the design change was for 1996 cars

I have a 89 buick park avenue ultra. my


the transmission breaking apart but in a really slow way. There's not a thing that can be done to save it. It's going to someday give out. You can prolong it by not punching on the pedal to test it. just drive it normally and DON"T get the trans oil change. Just leave it alone... I own 89 P/Ave 156,000 original owner. Same thing happened to my car and picked up a used trans at junk yard and my mechanic installed it and runs like a baby at half the price(700.00). If you go to junk yards half of the park ave are because of trans. Good luck

This is the diagram but you should have factory belt diagram sticker is still somewhere under the hood
If not:

To replace the serpentine belt on a V6 3800 you must jack up the motor and remove a motor mount. You must then use a breaker bar with a socket (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.
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
Good Luck

Sounds like you have a fuel problem, either supply or use.
check the fuel injectors first, maybe get them cleaned. this could be done with an additive or a visit to whomever changes your oil.
if not that, then the filters. but both of these are pretty simple to do.

if it persists, go to your mechanic and do a compression test, to see if you have a seal problem around your heads or your gaskets.
