Buick (2000 yr) Park Ave 3800 series II - How to replace front strut in a car .PT 3/3
Installation of a 2000 yr Buick Park Ave front wheel drive suspension
Strut.This application is the same(1997-2006)for Park Ave

W-Body and H-Body.Some Ultra are equip with electronic(wires at top of
strut shaft) or air ride(Air line at the top of strut shaft) strut.
the knuckle on a strut-type suspension is mounted on the shock absorber.
Sometime they are referred to as Macpherson strut. Strut type front
suspension became popular on production cars in the 70's because they
offered a simple and inexpensive configuration that doesn't take up much
space. It is particularly well-suited to front-wheel-drive production cars,
because it allows room for thr front drive-axle to pass through the front
hub. Most of today's small cars use this type of front suspension, because
it is inexpensive and gives a fairly good ride quality with the compact
dimension needed for front-wheel-drive cars.
DISADVANTAGE. Except where it might be required by the race-sanstioning
bodies in production-based classes, such as showroom stock, it probably
won't be used on many race cars. One of the problems with a strut-type
front suspension on a race car is that there isn't much room for wide tires
and wheels without increasing the scrub radius. Increasing the scrub radius
causes a big increase in the side loading of the sliding members, which
cause bending and higher friction loads. Another problem that concerns
racers is that there is little camber gain possible with this type of front
suspension, the swing arm lengh is reasonable and the roll center height
and swing arm lengh, the lack of sufficient camber gain keeps this type of
front suspension design from being suitable for race cars.
Another problem with a strut-type front suspension is that it requires a
high cowl heigh to provide sufficient room for the tops of the struts. This
can be a problem when building a low-profile race car. Honda has quit using
strut-type suspension on its production cars for these same reason. They
apparently feel that it is worth the increase cost to equip their car with
superior double A-arm type of suspension.
Strut-type front suspension is used on some low-cost cars that offer high
performance, but it is done to reduce cost, not for any handling advantage.

General Motors (Buick) Crankshaft Sensor Diagnosis and Adjustment
This Video is a detail information on the General Motors (Buick)
Hall-effect sensor. READ INFO BELOW and in VIDEO SCREEN.
Subject: Crankshaft sensor diagnosis, replacement, and adjustment.
Symptom: No start, engine dies intermittently or misses; intermitting
stalling during idle, deceleration, or b cruise.;High HC or CO at idle or
at 2500 rpm
The symptoms listed above may be caused by intermitted or permanent failure
of the crankshaft sensor, shown in video graphic. The crankshaft sensor is
hall-effect switch,mounted near the harmonic balancer. The sensor signal is
used to trigger both the ignition module and the fuel injection system.
The crankshaft sensor may fail because of engine vibration or damage from
road debris, suck as rocks. Early symptoms may appear as a misfire, engine
stumble, or an intermitted no-start condition.
inspect the sensor for damage from both above and below the engine. Inspect
the interrupter vanes on the harmonic balancer for shiny spots,which may
indicate that the vanes are hitting the stationary sensor. Check the magnet
and the sensor body for crack or broken sections. Replace the sensor if you
find any of this damage. Inspect the sensor connector for damage,
corrosion, and poor electrical connections. Service the connection as
To test sensor operation for intermittent problems, start the engine and
use a long screwdriver or pry-bar to tap gently on sensor housing. A heat
gun can be used to simulate under-hood temperature. If the engine falters
dies while you tap the sensor, the sensor probably has an intermittent
problem. SEE THIS VIDEO LINK. For additional tests.
REPLACEMENT and ADJUSTMENT
When the sensor is replaced, the gap between the interrupter vanes and the
sensor must be set precisely. Kent-Moore tool J-37089, or equivalent, shown
in video graphic, is used for all dual- slot sensors. Kent-Moore tool
J-36179 was used previously for single-slot sensors, but this tool use may
no longer apply because single-slot sensors have been superseded by
dual-slot sensor as service replacement. Shown in video graphic is
adjustment of the dual-slot sensor using tool J-37089. Adjustment is done
with the harmonic balancer removed from the engine crankshaft snout.
