2002 buick rendezvous motor shuddering problem.

Showing 6 out of 6 Posts
Question From tayzen on 2002 buick rendezvous motor shuddering problem.

2002 buick rendezvous
v6
5000 kms on rebuilt motor.

just today buick had a shudder in the motor when rpm went over 2500. feels like motor starving for fuel. If u slowwly accelerate doesnt seem to happen. if in park and iddle motor up to 2500 starts to shudder.
let sit for 5 minutes and tried again now it doesn't do it. anyone have an idea. the other thing i'm thinking is could it be a spark plug wire touching the rear exaust maniffold and melted through.

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

tayzen; This vehicle has misfire detection. You should have a check engine or service engine soon lamp illuminated? If so, have the code(s) retrieved and post them, here. Most larger parts stores will do this for free.

Response From tayzen Top Rated Answer

there was no engine light on.doesnt seem to be doing it anymore. I'll have to wait till it does it again and take it to the garage and have it computer diagnosed. In mean time going to change fuel filter. pull and inspect throttle positioning center to start. thanks for the advice. If there is something else i could check without a computer id be greatfull for the help. tks.

Response From Hammer Time

Well, are any wires touching the manifold?

Response From tayzen

sorry havent looked yet going to look tonight just wandering if it could have been a cause.

Response From Hammer Time

That or 100 other possibilities........

02 buick hesitates loses power

Showing 2 out of 10 Posts | Show 8 Hidden Posts
Question From dougcrv24 on 02 buick hesitates loses power

I have an 02 buick century 3.1 v-6. The car runs, but hesitates and chugs at low speed and during acceleration, also loses power at highway speeds. Seems to run fine at a stand still and while reving the motor, and will accelerate if you jump in the gas. I have changed the plugs with AC delco plugs, changed the MAF sensor, and air filter....still have the problem...help?

Response From Hammer Time

It sounds like it may be misfiring. If so, you want to make sure it has relatively new plug wires and it that doesn't resolve it, it's likely a bad coil.

Response From dougcrv24

Thanks. I'll try the new wires and see what happens. Where is the coil located if I need to replace it?

Response From Hammer Time

Just follow the wires back to the coil. I believe they are mounted right on top of the rear valve cover. You will first have to determine which cylinder is misfiring to know which coil is the problem.

Response From dougcrv24

I have the new wires and will be putting them on shortly. I also had a local shop check to see if there were any codes stored....none other than a miscellaneous misfire code in the history. If the wires do not solve the problem how do I determine which cylinder is missing, and thus which coil to replace?
Thank you again for the guidance.
-Doug

Response From Hammer Time

If it's a constant miss, then you can find it with a spark tester but if you getting a PO300, then it's likely not just one cylinder and you could have other issues.

Response From dougcrv24 Top Rated Answer

I have now replaced the spark plugs, wires, 3- coil packs, MAF sensor, and air filter. $350 later I still have the same problem with no codes showing. Fell like I am chasing a ghost.....and he's getting expensive to chase. Where do I go from here?
thanks.

Response From Hammer Time

Maybe you should stop throwing parts at it and have it diagnosed correctly. I advised you to use a spark tester that costs $4 and instead you replaced all the coils. You could have had it diagnosed professionally for well under $100. Your description doesn't give me the info I need to know what your experiencing.

Response From dougcrv24

Fair statement. As I mentioned I did take it in earlier this morning and was told that without codes to follow they could spend several hours trying to diag the problem. I thought putting on the wires and the coil packs looked easy enough before authorizing $300 or so for a diagnosis. I'll take it back to them. Thanks for trying to help.

Response From Hammer Time

If they want $300 to diagnose that problem, then find another shop. I own a shop and the max diagnostic I charge is $82. The wires it probably needed anyway but not all 3 coils.

1986 buick century limited 3.8 sometimes won't start

Showing 2 out of 6 Posts | Show 4 Hidden Posts
Question From granville on 1986 buick century limited 3.8 sometimes won't start

having problems never know when engine will start. Runs good, engine light comes on sometimes but goes off. tried to get engine code but does not have one stored. the engine will crank but no fire. go back later and engine fires and runs good. can I get help?

Response From granville

the eighth digit is 3

Response From Discretesignals

Ah the good ole flat tappet 3.8L. Those were actually pretty good engines and very peppy on the low end.

That spark has to at least be able to jump a 3/4 inch gap. Does this orange spark happen on all three coils? I would test to be sure the ignition coil module has good ground and good power to it. Then test the crank sensor input during the no start. If all that checks good, it is probably getting ready to toast the ignition module. All the green puddy stuff start squirting out the sides.

Response From granville

ended up changing out the ignition control box. seemed to fix my problem. thanks for the tip.

Response From Discretesignals

What is the 8th digit in the VIN?

Response From granville Top Rated Answer

my buick wouldn't start again checked spark plug wire to see if I had a spark. It was very weak (orange color) then all of a sudden the engine cranked and had a nice blue spark. Later on the car wouldn't start again so I checked again to see if I had spark the same thing happened the spark was weak then the engine fired and had a nice blue spark. This is becoming a pain. Could use any help anyone could give me.

1991 buick park avenue speedometer problem

Showing 2 out of 4 Posts | Show 2 Hidden Posts
Question From larson1951 on 1991 buick park avenue speedometer problem

Hi,
I have a 1991 buick park avenue:
When i start my car and let it idle the speedometer goes all over the place without moving. We replaced the speed control sensor on the transmission. But that did not help. When we are driving 55, it states 80 MPH. Because it is out of wack the transmission doesnt know when to shift. We drove it on the interstate and at 65 it stated 100 - 120MPH.The speed control sensor was the one that just popped into the hole and fastened with one screw. Any answers?
Thanks, Larson1951

Check the wiring harness routing; making sure that the harness for the speed sensor is in all of its brackets. Also the ignition (spark plug) wires; making sure they are being held in their keepers and not running close to the sensor or along the length of the sensor’s harness.
High voltage from the ignition wires might be inducing a voltage into the sensor’s wiring; sending a false signal to the ECM?

Did anyone ever find a solution to this issue?
My 90 park avenue is temperamental, it works when it's in the mood to work. And occasionally it jumps around as mentioned in the earlier post.
Someone told us it had something to do with the speed sensor somewhere near the wheel itself(didn't specify which wheel). But we cannot find any documentation in the Haynes manual and have yet to find anything that you would mistake as a sensor in that area.

Just curious, would be nice to fix it before I have to tell an officer, "no sir, I have no idea how fast I was going because my speedometer won't tell me".

just some thoughts.....seen these have coil problems,coil wire problems,spark plug wire problems...
