Your car is kind of new so I would be shocked if the shocks or struts or springs depending on the model are bad but you may want to check them. In regards to hearing the motor running in the back sounds like it is your fuel pump. hope this helps

Lower rear end of 2002 Park Avenue


Does your Buick have electronic level control (ELC), which utilizes air adjustable shocks. ELC maintains the rear trim height under a wide range of loads. Refer to ELC, as applicable ? Have you changed shocks on the back ?

Air ride compressor runs when i shut off engine car is level no change in height when running just runs all the time had to unplug it to get it to quit but ride is still ok does this mean that the...


There is a switch under the rear of the car that actuates the compressor when the ride height falls below a preset level. The switch could be out of adjustment from being hit with road debris, causing the compressor to run al this time. Or there could be an air leak causing the air shocks to be constantly trying to raise the ride height. If there is an air leak, the back of the car would be much lower than the front, but still maintain ride quality.

My back wheel when it hit a pot hole or any other bump in the street it bounce or not enough bounce to it ...the struts are ok an suspension is ok I was told so whats goin on..can u help me


I not sure if I fully understand your question. Are you asking should your car be bouncing more when you hit a bump or pot hole?

Well this is how struts and shocks are suppose to work: Struts and shocks are suppose to assist in providing a smooth ride, when you hit a bump or pot hole the struts and shocks absorb the force so you won't feel the full impact when driving. A good set of struts and shocks will eliminate excessive bouncing when driving or when you come across bumps and other mishaps in the road. So inconclusion if your car is not doing a whole lot of bouncing when you are driving that is a good thing, because that means your struts and shocks are doing their job and that means there is nothing wrong with them.

1990 Buick Park Avenue - air ride pump


Does the pump run a lot? My pump on my '91 ran all the time so I checked my rear struts and they were bad. Had them changed and the pump doesnt run so much now.
