Question about 2000 Buick Park Avenue

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Buick Park Avenue. Sqeal coming from belt area

I have a 2000 Buick Park Avenue. Today when I drove home from work I noticed a squeal coming from the engine compartment when I was pulling into my parking space. I let the care run idle and opened the hood, and the sound seemed to be coming from the belt area. I started the A/C while it was running at idle, and the squeal stopped. I then turned off the a/c and revved up the RPMs to about 3k and the squeal started again. I again turned on the a/c and it stopped.
Any ideas what is wrong? I though it might be the tension pulley, but the a/c bit has me confused. Help!

Yes the tension needs to be adjusted or they sell belt dressing to spray on at the auto parts store

1994 Buick Park Avenue lost all oil coming up the mountain and died. It drove home after replacing oil but is leaking steadily from the bottom of the engine on the passenger side under the fan belts when...

This sounds like it might be oil filter or oil pressure sending unit. I suggest to have a good friend or local mechanic take a look. Once the bearings are damaged from lack of oil, you will be without a car,and or a expensive bill...better safe than sorry...

2000 buick park avenue ultra starts sputturing and then dies while driving. no lights come on and had the codes checked . shows nothing . just drove 2,500 miles on trip run perfect . now dying again

Is it possible that your getting bad gas in your area? since it ran fine on the trip and now that your back home its not? maybe try a different gas station. if not you'll probably have to take it to a well equipped shop to have it hooked up to a scan tool that can read data while your driving to see the ecm info when the problem occurs.good luck as intermittent engine problems can be difficult sometimes.
