Buick Century QuestionsRefine by vehicle
i own a 2001 buick century custom and when i drive it its ok till its gets hot then its stays hot and will only let me go to about 25 to 30 mph and when i looked under my hood i saw a leak of some water slightly spiting out right under my intake manifold do i need a new intake manifold gasket or do i need new head gaskets cause my car still starts and still has power when i step on the gas any one have any thoughts they could share would help out alot
temp gauge goes to red line at 203 degrees (temp is 203 at computer according to my scanner).thermostat works fine.Just replaced lower intake gasket,thermostat waterpump due to leaks.Also replaced temp sender at this time due to high reading,but problem still exists.Any idea what resiatance or other readings should be at temp sender?
pfmills problem solved; plug wires were arcing, plus in bad need of new plugs.
This car leaks gas everyday no matter whether we park on flat ground, up on a hill, or facing down. We don't really know what it's from, but I figure it could be a hole in the gas tank. How much do you think it would cost to replace the tank? We're trying to figure out if it's worth it to replace the whole thing or to just keep on driving it until we need to get another car.
Thanks very much.

My car over heats because the fan will not come on,replaced sensers but fan does not work were are the cooling fan relays located
The transmission has developed a good size leak at the driver side output shaft, or drive shaft. I am told that it will be more involved than the seal at the point of entry for the half shaft and is actually an internal bearing/seal problem. True?

low wash on dashlight what does that mean
It leaks oil soon after i start the car and runs dowm the front of the motor on the right side.Its hard to get to, it us under the fuel lines that come in under this black plate that the throttle lines and the fuel lines are above.It looks like a distributor goes there like it was plugged up.
My '98 century started overheating after I replaced a leaking heater hose. I added more antifreeze to replace what I lost from the bad heater hose. I thought that the coolant that I added to the overflow bottle would work its way into the engine but after driving about 6 miles most of the coolant is still in the overflow bottle.
When I drove the car it would start overheating when I was going 40 mph or less. As I accelerated to 55 or 60 mph the temp. gauge would come back to the middle position. Then when I drove the eighth of a mile up my dirt road to my house at 15 mph it was completely in the red.
replaced egr valve and cleaned egr passage but codes still set after a couple miles

Car runs fine around town but when climbing a grade on the interstate, the front shudders for a second or two. It feels like driving over rumble strips. This can happen two or three times until the hill is crested. Sometimes get the same effect when the transmission shifts from 3rd into 4th at 45 mph. Didn't find any trouble codes. Any suggestions? Car has 85,000 miles.

My wiper fluid tank is full but no wiper fluid comes out when I want to wipe my windows. The wiper blades move, but no fluid squirts out. Do I need a new hose? How much does that typically cost? Thank you!

My brake light stays on even though the parking brake is released. The brake pedal works as usual. What can be the source of the problem and how to fix it?
has not been changed out by the prior owner since 2006. Tvehicle only has 35k miles. Has been a very good car.
What causes a rough idle for a minute or less when you start the car? My mechanic replaced the spark plugs, spark plug wires and one coil pack. This did not help. My mechanic cleaned the injectors and this did not fix it. The check engine light has come on three different times when it idles rough long enough. My 1999 Buick Century has 98,000 miles.
