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.

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.

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.

Can I install Electric Fuel Pump with out Removing the Pump in the Gas Tank? Will it be able to pull gas through the broken fuel pump in the tank? And hey, I know that dropping the tank and replacing the original pump is an easy fix - for various reasons, I'd rather convert to external electric. Thanks in advance!!!
These may be separate problems but when I start the car it immediately begins making a rattling noise like a nickel vibrating in a tin can. I tracked it down to the pulley in the serpentine belt for my AC compressor. The pulley seems to be spinning freely but the face of it rotates very slowly and there are metal shavings around the edges and under it. I honestly don't know if the face is supposed to be immobile or what but it spins. and it's grinding somewhere.
The other problem I have (related or not) is that the car has completely cut out on me twice. It suddenly feels like it's gotten knocked into neutral (power brakes out, steering suddenly heavy) but the engine won't rev and I have to let momentum get me off the road. Radio stays on the whole time though. Shutting the engine off and restarting has fixed the problem both times. Is this a belt problem or just a bad coincidence?
The radiator in my car leaks very bad all the time
