Is there a 100,00K mile check-up for a 199 Buick Century? If so, what exactly is taken care of? What's the cost likely to be?

I have been told I need a tune-up, transmission fluid flush, steering fluid flush. All at a cost of $900.00. The tune up being about half of that. It seems like alot to me. What should I be asking?

Cable from driver's hood release switch to hood release latch has come disconnected near radiator. How can I open hood to replair/reconnect cable so driver's switch will work normally again?

I have a slow leak and have an estimate to have the intake manifold gasket replaced. The cost to repair including antifreeze, labor (6 hrs)and parts is $550. Is this a fair price and is it a repair that needs to be done immediately. The light on the dash keeps saying "low coolant".

How much does it cost to replace a sensor light? A red light has come on my dash stating coolant is low, check coolant. The coolant was checked and it was okay, not low

The brakes make an "airy", "whoosing" noise on the inside of the car when the pedal is depressed. The noise stops when the car is turned off. The pedal feels a little mushy, but not too bad. It does take longer than normal to stop the car.

diagnostic code p0401 egr flow insufficient making check engine light come on . what is the cause.

When I shut off my wipers, the passenger side wiper seems to be bouncing over what I can will describe as a stop block so that the end of the wiper comes to rest on the hood. It appears that it want to park below the stop block. On the driver's side, the wiper parks on the stop block for that wiper. Aside from this the wipers seem to be working fine.

I am guessing that all I have to do is remove and reinstall the wiper arm in the proper park position. However, I thought it wise to ask the community before I went to this effort in case I was on the wrong track.

On my 2004 Buick Century the heater fan always works fine, but I only get cold air from vents. How do I fix this problem?

Just recently did this start tohappen. It happened twice on my way home ttoday, both times it started right up but as soonas I put it in gear it died, after trying a halfdozen times each timei got it to stay running and finally got home. What would cause this.

is there any other type of relay or fuse other than the fuse for my taillamps that i may need to replace

last night my dash lights went out i ignored it knowing it was probably a fuse until i realized my tailights were also out. my fuse was blown so i replaced it the first two i inserted blow as well then i unhooked all of my stereo equipment and put in a fuse and it didnt blow but it still wont work i've hit reset on the fuse box and disconnected the battery and still nothing

I've asked a number of knowledgeable mechanics and we're all stumped. Figure this one out and you win the cookie. :)

Symptoms: At normal driving temperature, the temp gauge fluctuates between "Normal" and "Red Zone." When the temp gauge goes UP, the heater blows COLD. Rev up the engine a bit and the temp gauge goes back down to "normal" and the heater blows HOT.

We've replaced: The Radiator, The Thermostat, The Water Pump, We've flushed and back-flushed the block, the Radiator and the heater Core. The Coolant is new 50/50 mix and we've properly bled the air out of the system.

Any Takers?

Leak is not sever, but is constant.

Wondering if it is possible to clean the injectors and how hard it is to clean them? Car was running rough under acceleration and above a certain rpm. Had to ease up on accelerator to upshift. Replaced gas filter twice about a day apart and added injector cleaners to gas tank. Helped, but still runs uneven.

Heater fan has failed. In process of diagnosing, reset dashboard fuse box and checked all HVAC fuses...all were functional, however, ignition now failing. All lights coming on, everything else seems operational. Car has remote start.

what is the cost of a power steering fluid flush?

wipers stop in up position after turning them off

Need to find out how to remove the steering column in order to replace the dimmer switch
