Buick Century QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I had my car in the shop about 7 weeks ago because my car, upon driving after braking, would make a high screeching sound and be hard to steer forward. No matter where I was, the only way to move forward was to turn off the motor and turn it back on. The diagnostics showed nothing and the AntiLock light and Service Engine Soon light would come on. They thought it was a sensor and reset whatever so the lights would go off. Alas, they found nothing wrong.
The problem is recurring with the Anti Lock and the Service Engine Soon light coming on. I had it "to" the shop and I was told if it was the brakes that they had to hear or have it act up within their presence as it would be mechanical. I have had mechanics in the car, 3-4 times now, and driven a short while but nothing happens.
This past Saturday and Sunday, the car brakes seemed to lock and made a screeching noise twice. Twice I had a line of cars behind me in a traffice lane and one of those times, I had a big line behind me when I locked up trying to enter a divided highway at night. One of the times I was in a parking lot and a man walking down the asphalt told me it sounded like it was my brakes. He said it was so loud it startled him.
I never know when this will happen, but I'm terribly afraid this is going to cause a bad accident and people are going to be seriously injured or killed. This is happening 3-4 times a week now and I'm not even driving a lot.
The car repair shop (I was there twice last week) is a reputable chain shop, but I am getting nowhere and it seems I am not being taken seriously about the problem. I'm at my wits end. Any thoughts, on this issue, before someone gets seriously hurt, maimed, or killed?

Brown Automotive diagnosed "oil in coolant with internal engine light" as internal engine damage (possible cracked head or block or head gasket but not the intake gasket). Their paper-work shows "34 engine cooling" and "32 engine mechanical". They recommend an engine replacement. Should I consider this an accurate assesment or get another opinion?

how do you replace the timing chain in a 1999 buick century with the 3100 motor? The diagnostic tester said the oxygen sensors were bad so i replaced them and the car still wont start up and its got spark and good fuel pressure.the car ran fine good than it just shut off while driving it cranks but wont run an i checked everything else so it must be the timing chain rite?
