SOURCE: What is the llocation of a fuel pump for a1988 buick park avenue

Commonly submerged in the fuel tank. Some require the removal of the bottom rear seat, others need entire tank dropped to access.
If memory serves, you will need to drop the tank to access on the P.Ave.
Save yourself some time and pop off the rear seat just to be sure.

SOURCE: Heater Core Replacement for 1986 Buick Electra Park Ave

there is no easy way to change out a heater core...you have to take the bottom part of the dash loose and that takes some doing. once you get the bottom of the dash apart you will see the heater core.then you have to go under the hood and unhook both water lines that run to it, you should then be able to pull the heater core out and install the new one

SOURCE: my 1993 want start or turn over buick park ave.

Check the battery connections and the battery itself the battery must be charged and tested, clean the battery terminals charge the battery and try to start, if no luck take the battery to an auto parts store to have it tested for free replace battery if neccessary, always wear safety glasses when working near a battery. If the battery is good and connections are good replace the starter, but you may want to check the connections at the starter first before purchasing a starter there may be corrosion on the connections.

SOURCE: 91 buick park ave wont start

You need to first stop guessing and start making some reasonable tests to see if you even have any fire. Put a spark tester on your spark plugs and turn the vehicle over to see if the spark tester lights up...then if it does, spray some ether in the vehicle' air intake to throttle body, and see if it is capable of running. This is a place to start then you can give me more informaiton after these tests and they don't cost you too much to do, then we can go from there...might even be able to get you running.
