2001 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.
2001 Buick Century Questions
When driving the car for more than an hour, the car seems to lurch when speeding up from the first couple of gears. I am also told that the car needs a new egr valve and that its stuck open. Would this have anything to do with the lurching, or is there another reason why it lurches.
2001 Buick Century Recalls
The air bag warning label on the sun visors does not comply with required size and content guidelines. GM mailed customers a new label to install on their visors.
The side air bag inflator may separate from the air bag module during deployment. This may cause reduced protection and injury to occupants. Dealers will replace the side impact air bag module.
The seat belt buckles may not have been properly heat-treated during the manufacturing process. This may cause the buckles not to function correctly during a collision, which may cause injury. Dealers will replace the seat belt buckles.
