Question about 1998 Buick Park Avenue

1 Answer

1998 Buick park Ave fuel gage pegs far to right

I had a similar prblem after I jumped start . I read somewhere on a forum (Iwish I could find it and thank the guy) that you could use a strong magnet to rotate the needle counterclockwise to it's normal reading. Then if it doesn't stay ther you could drill a small hole and cement a post just to the right of the FULL mark. I used the magnet (has to be a strong one) and did as the gentleman said. Mine works GREAT w/o having to drill any holes. SAVED ME A BUNDLE!!!!

How can you tell if your car has jumped time? I have a 1998 buick park ave. that tries to start but wont.


check fuel filter and make sure its not clogging up, make sure the engine is getting fuel, have someone go under the car where the fuel tank is and have them listen when you turn the key to on to see if there is any sound coming from in the fuel tank, if not, then you may have burnt out the fuel pump. Fuel pumps are Great for randomly going out at a moments notice. those GM v6 engines dont jump time easily so it more than likely wont be that.

Engine 3800 for 98 Park ave. shows oil pressure too high on the gauge. what could cause this


Sounds like your oil pressure sending unit is faulty! When you turn the key on, is the gauge reading low, then you start it and it pegs out? if so, the sending unit has failed.

Speedometer or fuel gage?

If speedometer which is bouncing around, it is likely a bad ground near where the speed sensor wire harness (which connects the speed sensor to the rest of the "network") exits the transmission housing. It's at the very back of the transmission (you have a 4T60E trans) to the left of where the right side half-shaft leaves the trans housing. Just look for damaged wires. If none, replace the speed sensor for $50-60.

If it is the fuel gage, the sensor is probably not "zeroed"--it's reading wrong, too high, and if it were to start at true "empty", it would read right. Thus, the gage is always reading a little high (maybe a 1/8-1/10th of a tank too high?). This isn't a problem until to stop, start, or turn quickly and cause the fule to slosh around in the tank and starve the in-tank pickup which sends fuel to the engine.

If it is the fuel gage, you should simply put as much fuel in as you can and see if the needle goes far above "F". If it does, note how far it went and then practice filling the tank when the needle is that same distance above "E".

Hope this helps.
