Buick Century Problems
The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.
One or more power window switch may fail. The affected window may work intermittently before failing completely.
The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.

Overall thought, I think this is an excellent car and would re...
As many problems as I've had with this car, I just can't seem to part with it! I've had the intake manifold gasket done twice, and the transmission just conked out on me for the second time. Still, I'm wrestling with getting rid of it. It handles like a dream, especially in snow, the engine still has a lot of pep to it, and with regular maintenance, it has had few problems in the 5 years I've h...
