1998 Buick Century ProblemsFlush cooling system every 60,000 miles
GM recommends replacing the engine coolant at 100,000 miles; however, our technicians tell us that the coolant may become contaminated and require a complete cooling system flush every 60,000 to 70,000 miles.
One or more power window switch may fail. The affected window may work intermittently before failing completely.
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.
1998 Buick Century QuestionsWhy when am driving and press the gas paddle it does not accelerate and does not speed up and feels like its going to shut off what would the problem be? (1 answer)
Hi, I have a 98 Buick that overheats whether driving or still. The radiator is 4-5 years old I've done the water pump and 2 thermostats in the last year. I've also flushed it and bled it properly. Also I just changed 3 fan relays and it still overheats. It's not mixing water and there...
It's only a couple miles each way and I can't afford to fix it for 5 days or so. It just broke. It broke on the passenger side right at the end of the bar where it connects to the control arm. Please let me know. It is my only vehicle. Thanks.
