Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Buick Park Avenue 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
I am considering buying a Park Avenue Ultra with the supercharger. This particular Park Ave has a rattling supercharger, in fact every one I have come across the last few years has had varying degrees of a rattle in the supercharger. The person selling this Park Ave is trying to tell me that it is not a bearing problem, but a problem with the input shaft, and it can go another 100K miles with the rattle. I am pretty sure that this is not true. I am just curious as to what the deal is with these things, can I send it out to be rebuilt for a price that isn't more than what the car is worth? Is there anyone that rebuilds these? This particular car is in real nice shape, it's just the supercharger that is wrong with it.
have the same problem?
