A very common issue on these is the crankshaft position sensor, it is sensitive to heat when it goes bad, had the issue on my own Buick.

My buick park ave ultra ran hot til the point that it shut off and wont start.someone told me it could be my head gasket


Never have seen a bad head gasket on a 3800. Your problem could be the upper intake manifold had gone bad and leaked all of the coolant into the combustion chamber. If you run any engine too hot, you will need to replace the engine as excessive heat will warp cylinder bores, heads , valves etc. Seek a good used engine and never drive a overheated engine unless you can afford a replacement engine.

I have a 1995 Buick Park Ave Ultra. The car has power but will not turn over. I was told by one shop that it might be the V.A.T.S. system and by another that it is the IGNITION CONTROL MODULE.


Make sure the battery cables are clean and tight on the battery. Check to see if the wires to the starter are tight. Try starting it in neutral to make sure the safety switch is being make. Also hold it up into park and try.

My 1999 buick park Ave. Superchared is very loud.


The L67 motor in the park ave ultras use a Eaton m90 supercharger. The coupler in the noise cone will go bad. Try replacing the coupler. Can usually purchase one for 40.00 from a shop that rebuilds them. Hope this helps.
