Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1997 Buick Park Avenue Owner Comments

problem #1

(reported on)

Park Avenue Ultra Limited 3.8L Supercharged

  • Automatic transmission

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I have a 1997 Buick Park Avenue Ultra with a 3.8L supercharged engine. On the passenger side of the motor down towards the bottom back part towards the fire wall of the engine is a pulley that fits into a part that is bolted to the motor. The serpentine belt wraps around this pulley. This pulley came out of its part and also caused the serpentine belt to come loose. What is this part called and How much does it cost?
