Climate controller has dual zones...the pass zones still works fine with AC and heat...the driver zone will only deliver heat regaradless of how the controls are set...also the fan speed does not work on high so I am think I need to replace the climate control panel...

My vehicle is California emissions and after hours of research . I saw that I had to buy a California exhaust system to fit my car which I have from rockauto. Now I see that the cat converter has no port hole for my already there air sensor plug to install into. My old cat converter had a port hole just past the cat.heading towards the muffler. I can't understand what's going on. ? Either I have the wrong cat or my exhaust system was modified ?? I don't know and can't tell? Thank you kindly tony

oil gasket leaking,see no oil pan cover.

My check engine light is on service engine light is on but the car runs good but I was told my charcoal canister is bad

2001 Buick Century Custom, 6cyl

Car starts and idles great but has no acceleration unless you punch and than takes off. Replaced in line fuel filter, plugs, and cleaned E G R valve no change. Service Light flashed but still does not stay.on. when First start in morning runs the way. It should very briefly

It switch out no problem

when you floor it it takes off. will not accelerate when slowly pushing on gas pedal. no engine light on but has flashed a couple times

The car will not accelerate correctly. When pressing the gas the engine reves but hardly picks up speed. Even worse while going up a hill.

The car gets warm not hot when I idle. Mechanic said fan not working. Could it be a fuse only and it would start the fan again. Worth trying first? Car has 192000 miles but drives great.

replace the complete wiper assembly

I took my car in because it was leaking coolant, asked mechanic to see why it's leaking. I got my timing cover gasket replaced because the mechanic said that was the problem with the leak. A week later it's leaking again, I take it back and now it's the head gasket. Why didn't they see both gaskets the first time. Now they want another $1000 to repair.

Fans come on to cool engine.Not when I turn on ac

When I turn the key the car won't start and the security light stays on

No chip key wide ripped off to wire chip sensor out of the ignition

Changed the gastket and still over heating idk what else could it be turn it off 1 hour the temp statred to raise again. Help i dont know what else it could be

I have checked all the fuses under hood and passenger side fuse box, still nothing.

I was told I needed to replace my intake gasket. Very bad oil leak.

Mechanic is now telling me car won't pass CA smog because the AC air compressor is broken and bearings are rubbing making terrible noise. Does the air compressor have anything do do with smog test?

I was given a car. Have to transfer from OH to CA. First step is to get CA smog. Mechanic said it was sitting too long & I'd need to drive it. Computer wasn't recognizing oxygen sensor. But while talking to him, it made weird noises. Mechanic removed what I think was the serpentine belt. Found compressor was damaged. I can live without air conditioning. But he said -- the problem now is -- we can't replace that belt because it is no longer made. I saw the part on-line. Mechanic put the old belt back on. He told me it was dangerous to drive. I'm not sure what to do next. Can the belt be replaced?

Can unlock passenger door then unlock the automatic locking system

My bright lights work and my flashers work. All rear lights work as well.

The car will go in reverse & 1 and 2 but not in Drive or 3. There's 166,000 miles on it. I've been told twice that the transmission on these Buicks are not repairable & it will have to be replaced. blue value = $995. transmission=$1450. whats the smart thing to do?

Other than the resistor, what else could cause my heater to only work on high setting in my '99 Buick century custom?

Checked fuses and everything

i need to replace the high pressure power steering hose and i need to know the size of it and the fittings

My car will reverse but won't drive in drive, my coworker told me to add a whole bottle of stop slip? To it and see if that helps ? Anybody use that stuff before and does it work ? Or should I jus get a new transmission?

Just started today, auto zone said battery OK, could it be the alternator?

I bought this vehicle (used)in February from a dealership.96,000 miles on car. It wasn't really any major problems with car. I've had an oil changed,front end aliment,changed spark plugs and wires. Im June i noticed my car act like it didn't want to turn over on the first try.Later I got it put on a diagnostic machine,the throttle position sensor needed replacing. I got a used part put on after that my starter went out, the fuel pump. Got those replaced with used parts. Car wouldn't crank up and the security light was on. Nobody could fix it until recently I called a locksmith and they managed to get the light off and it cranked up but the dashboard isn't reading my mileage,gears,and gas needle wasn't working while car is cranked. Im running out of resources on how to get this problems fixed any suggestions?
