1998 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.

A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. The engine may overheat as a result of the coolant loss. A leaking water pump should be replaced.

 

The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.

I have a Buick Century 1998 limited it has 227k miles. In the summer i fishtailed into a swamp engine first. I thought it was done for but she keeps on going with minimal repair, this car is a fighter thats for sure. For my first car i gotta say i love it!

This car is awesome i have hardly any problems like not even no major only minors and it has about 300,000k miles and its still running good noting wrong with it so i strongly recommend this car and any Buick.

I don't understand this car has very bad brake problems they sound metal to metal all the time have replaced 2 times a year is only drove around town local. Maybe someone can tell me about these brakes the back wears not the front, and every thing that can be change has been and still doesn't work. please email me with any help
