The people on this forum are to be commended ! I also have a 98 Riv. & for about a month i kept getting a SES light.....P0341. I just had my PCM flashed, & still got the SES light. So i did a search on this web sight & read how you fellows found the problem. THANK YOU VERY MUCH ! ! ! Today i fixed the problem & no more SES light. You have saved me beau-coup bucks. It's sooooo nice to see you young fellows buying Buicks. When i was your age (i'am 67), it wasn't Buicks that the younger guys were buying. I'am from Flint Mi, ( the home of Buick ), & have always driven Buicks. Now you are finding out what a good buy they are.
Another thing.... i've had Reattas for almost ten years now, & the quick & easy fix for the camshaft interrupter magnet does work. I installed one 3 years ago & it still works fine.
Once again..... a very big thank you.

Hey, welcome, and a LOT of history driving Buicks here!!!
Long before I had my '98 Riv, I grew up driving my '73 LeSabre, which I still have! My grandparents bought the '73 and my brother's '69 Special brand new, and we still have both cars!
Along the way my mother bought an '86 Century convertible new, one of the first FWD 3800 cars! That was right around the time we were getting our licenses, and one of the first small FWD cars that could easily light up the front wheels! A nice step up from the Escort Wagon they used to drive!
Later they grabbed a '94 Regal and then a '98 PA, for my folks, the '94 Regal also became mine for about 8 years before I found my Riv, plus my mother's current '97 LeSabre.
The '73 LeSabre is under drivable rebuilding (one panel at a time, still quite roadworthy) to get rid of some rust from the years.
I've been to Flint, took a tour of the GM Medium Duty truck plant back about 10 years ago when I had a friend who lived out there for a bit - (awesome tour btw, way way better than the tour of the corvette plant in Bowling Green)
As far as Buicks go, there is nothing out there to me that combines the ride quality and power (as long as you picked the right drivetrain) while keeping the pricing reasonable like Buick does.

Welcome Ron, you and Dave have a lot of Reatta talk to catch up on! Glad the site fixed your problems.
