I have an intake gasket leaking coolant in the back of my 2002 Century Buick engine.
The shop told me it shorted out my starter. If I replace the starter will
this happen again in a short amount of time?
The blower works and operates fine, but the temperature of the air doesn't stay hot. It works sometimes for a few seconds at a time, other times for a few minutes. In the morning when it is colder out it doesn't work and my low oil light comes on. In the afternoons when the temperature is around 50 it works no problem and the low oil light goes away. I recently learned I need to replace the inner manifold gasket due to a small leak, but the shop estimated it would be months before it needs to be done.
Have been told its the head gasket - sound correct? 70,000 miles
Have been told its the head gasket - does this sound correct?
How much will it cost to repair?
The location is on the upper side of the radiator.
My centurys temperature gauge began to go back and forth recently. It has coolant in it. I had the car for seven years. I had the water pump changed about 2 years ago. Coolant flush 2 years ago. The fans kick on when it starts to over heat. The radiator does have rocks in it and a lilttle bent up. Im sure why this is happening but would like some advice!!!
I have a 2002 Buick Century Limited edition and the gas gage has been going crazy. If I sit for a minute on a hill it reads no gas and then the dinging goes off to tell me that I have no gas....But if I fill it all the way up its fine....Until it gets to about 3/4 of a tank then that's when it goes crazy....I never really know how much gas I have do to this....Please help....Its been doing this for a while now....Thank you.....Jennifer
Climate controls seem to be operating fine. When the problem 1st began, it went back to blowing cool 2 days later w/o any repairs.
Yesterday i went to start my car and no sound nothing , no lights came on just dead. So we took the battery to autozone to get it charged and put battery in and viola it started. Now that is has sat overnight battery is back drained. We just got our alternator rebuilt so we believe the starter is causing the problem. Could that be the case?? I dont kno what else could drain a battery overnight like this.
