Question about 2003 Buick Rendezvous

1 Answer

My 2002 rendezvous has 460 thousand k on it - I'm told that is unheard of - I do take care of it - but recently after driving for about 45 min it bangs when shifting gears! I'm reluctant to take it to a garage without some knowledge first - I'm a girl and I hate to be told I need a new trany when it may be a simple fix (as far as simple can be) Thank you, BLN

    IS the noise there constantly now, thur all speed ranges. or only after being driven 45minutes straight, or only after being driven over 45mph for 45minutes straight?

    only after about 45 min of driving and if I let it sit for a while it is fine again for short distance - yesterday it didn't do it all and I drove for 1.5 hr

    the bang starts at about 40mph then at 60mph and 80mph

I would recommend that you have the transmission fluid and filter changed

    I think ur wrong, cuz with that many km's the trans fluid (if dirty) acts like a protector. So do not listen to these back yard mechanic, cuz it will cost u alot $$$.ask a quaified licenced mechanic and if he's honest, he tell u the same thing

I had the same problem in my 02 Rendezvous. I took it to the dealer and the cleaned the sensors on the two front wheels. They told me that if you get a flat or new tires, the sensors can get dirty or damaged and most people are not aware that they are there. The dealer also told me that only the 02's have this issue.

I have an 2002 rendezvous with 144k miles. When I drive it, under any condition, the moment the car runs at anything less than 2000 rmp's, it feels like it is going to die. I will cruise the roads at like...

This is a long shot but try unplugging the MAF (mass air flow) sensor. It is located in between the air filter housing and the throttle body. It may or may not idle but if it does take it for a test drive and see if it gets better. Preferable somewhere that doesn't have a lot of traffic.

Considering buying a 2002 Rendezvous. Heard noises from rear end when going up/down driveway approach. Thought it may be the shocks. Told by mechanic that it is the rear 'knuckle'?

Not exactly great vehicles. The resale value doesn't hold up for trade in purposes. The engines still had issues with their intake gaskets. Yes it could still need shocks being more than 3 years old and would be a good idea if purchased. Let me know if you need any other information.

Where is the starter located on my 2002 buick rendezvous?

a single click usually means the starter. multiple rapid clicks while the key is in start position usually means battery...if battery bad, could be due to alternator, but you likely would have noticed a battery light on the dash while driving before.
