I have tried a new bulb and a new headlight assembly. Tested the male end that you plug into light with test light and it has power. Male end of light not working has power at both wires on the back side of it when lights are on but light that works only has power at one wire on backside.

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

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

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?

Car overheated pulled over let cool added water got back on interstate and lost power after driving 50 miles

It will start if you don't go all the way to the ignition switch stop.

I suspect there is a problem with the switch.
What do you think

I don't notice noise while driving but it is not very loud so it could be there. The noise seems to be in between front and back seat or center and coming obviously from underneath. Any ideas. Thanks.

BUICK CENTURY 3100 SFI V 6 ENGINE

there is no reading for odometer

When i go to start my car , it makes a "clunking" sound and takes a couple seconds to start. It does not do this every time, but when it does t scares me. Also when i accelerate I notice a jerk or a kick back , especially uphills! If anyone could help that would be great!

Hi I have a coolant leak in my 2001 buick century. Prior to this i had to replace the intake manifold, the timing cover gasket due to a coolant leak. This time it isn't leaking from the intake. I am wondering if it is from the radiator ?? Sorry I dont have that much knowledge when it comes to cars

The past few days it has been extremely hot (90's) so I am wondering if it's because i leave my car on when i run into the store. I have looked underneath my car to see if its my intake and I do not see any leaks(yet). I have had my timing gasket and intake manifold gasket repaired about 6 months ago. can someone help me out please? Very much appreciated.
