Can I put a 1997 3.8 non supercharged motor in a 1994 buick park avenue that had a non supercharged 3.8 motor in it


No. While the engine would probably bolt right in, there are two entirely different engine control systems for the two models. The '97 engine has OBD-II controls- more and different sensors and controllers, while the '94 engine has the less sophisticated OBD-1 system. They are not interchangeable. An engine from a '94 or '95 park avenue is your best choice. Any from 1996 onward is OBD-II (On Board Diagnostics, second generation).

My car wont turn over or crank.


Could be just dirty battery post connections...can you jump start? Do the lights come on? If yes, the terminals are dirty corroded and will not allow enough current to turn the 3800 motor over. Hope this helps.

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

Please check these components:
PCV valve
EGR valve

Many times these can affect a motor in the way you describe and these do not typically report errors to the computer.
