2003 Buick Century: can anyone tell me what the lines are near the oil pan and transmission pan. They snake back and forth and run up near the transmission pan. Are they transmission lines, or power steering lines?

#476 of 482 2003 buick century - water in tail lights

Hello - Does anyone have this problem and know what is causing it and how to correct it.
My 2003 buick century keeps getting water inside the tail lights. There aren't any cracks or anything obvious like that. Why is this happening and should I be concerned???
Thanks for any advice, Deborah

The plastic behind the thin connector wires does not hold up well as the thin wires used as the lamp connectors heat up. The left signal and cornering light tend to stay on longer than the right while waiting to turn, so the plastic softens and the connector eases down into the plastic. I fixed mine by gently raising the wire and putting a small piece of metal tape behind it. The kind of metal tape used to seal ducts will work fine. Keep the piece small enough that it will not allow any chance of causing a short.

I had that same problem, and it continues on and off. its the throttle sticking. I sprayed some lube on it and it worked good as new again.
#479 of 482 By Buick Century 95 finally has been junked; looking at 2003-2005 models.?

My 95 Buick Centry ran great; never had more than typical maintenance, but the repair costs now are more than the car's value. Does anyone have extra carfax credits or other car history report credits I can use so I don't have to pay the fee?
I'm going to assume the ride of the more recent models is as good as my old 95. It felt like I was coasting.

I have had the same problem. I think the water was condensation rather than a leak. There are small vents covered with beigh rubber caps. I removed the caps for more ventilation. I also drilled a 1/4" hole into the bottom of the backup light chamber to allow more ventilation, and less of a difference in temperature between the inside of the bulb chambers, and the outside. So far, no sign of water. I needed a new backup light socket when all this was through. I got an OEM socket through RockAuto.com
#482 of 482 '98 Buick Century Odometer
Jun 05, 2012 (6:22 am)
My husband and I are getting ready to sell our 98 Buick Century before moving overseas. About 4 months ago the odometer/gear panel went out. Everything else, the speedometer, etc., is fine. For a few days it would appear briefly if I fiddled with the knob to dim the dash lights.
I called a dealer and he said he would have to replace the instrument panel at an estimated cost of $600. The car is in fair condition at best and this is hardly worth it. It doesn't seem right that the whole instrument panel would have to be replaced....
Anyway, it will be hard to sell the car without a working odometer, and it is too bad because the car only has about 120,000 miles.
