Question about 2000 Buick Park Avenue

1 Answer

1998 Buick Park Ave Speedometer stopped working.

Sunday last, I changed the Serpentine belt on my 98 Park Ave and had removed the battery (for more elbow room). Got everything back together and the gas gauge didn't work, which I corrected with the magnet. Two days later, the wife called me and said that now the speedometer does not work. Suppose the magnet made that stop working? It worked before I did the work and it worked the day after that.

Found the problem with the speedometer on my Buick. When you use the magnet to fix the gas gauge, will can and may affect your speedo. So use the magnet trick on it as well. Appears that the manufacturer didn't think about the needles being able to swing past the magnet they have set up in the gauges. Should have put a stop pin on the gauges.

Serpatine belt comes off buick park ave. when driving through standing water


My bet is that one of the pulleys is misaligned. Could possibly be on the belt tensioner. Have you tried a new belt tensioner?

Also make sure the other pulleys do not have ANY play in them. Take the belt off and by hand check to see if you can wobble any of the pulleys.

If the shaft of any pulley is not perfectly aligned with the other pulleys, that pulley could cause the belt to slip off. Has the alternator, power steering pump, AC compressor been worked on or removed just prior to this happening? One of those might not have been reinstalled perfectly. A washer that is missing or in the wrong place can cause a belt to drift.
