My 1995 park ave. runs and idles fine from 10-25 min. then dies and wont start until its totally cooled off


I can sure help you on this one!
Almost every car today that is on roads in America have a small ( size of your finger) sensor that screws into the block near the thermostat, and which sensor tells the computer what the engine temperature is. These are made cheaply and go bad. I have changed 4 of them on a variety of cars in the last 2 years. This is NOT the sensor that turns on the electric fan. Parts houses here say the different cars even use the same sensor!
Be blessed.

My 1993 buick park ave stalls when stopped at red lights


When was last "healthy" tune up? Plugs, wires, ALL filters including FUEL filter? I'd start there, and run a good fuel system cleaner w/next tank full of fuel. In winter, with fluctuating temps, condensation (water) forms in fuel tank and spark plugs don't burn fuel/water efficiently causing stumbling and premature wear on your plugs.

1993 buick park ave will not change gears


Have your Catalytic Converter checked for free flow, (if it is stopped up with calcification from unspent fuel, then the car will have trouble moving at all). A tell tale sign of oncoming Catalytic Converter problems is the overdrive balking or wanting to hesitate, when the transmission is in overdrive the vehicle is running at its lowest r.p.m. and so like at idle it will stumble or hesitate, or cut the engine altogeter, for the motor has to be able to exhale, to exhaust its combustion gases, in order to run properly, stopped up catalytic converters are a big problem with this car.
