#160 of 592 sporadic problem 2000 buick century
Jun 30, 2006 (3:34 am)
My dad has a 2000 Buick Century and he has an sporadic problem for the past year or so. Sometimes when he is driving, the car starts whining and shifting into other gears. If he pulls over and rests the car it is fine. This can happen twice a day and then not again for months. It happens in all different driving conditions. The transmission shop wants to charge him 800 to overhaul it but that is alot for a senior. Has anyone else had a similar problem? Thanks

Did you have any luck with the glovebox on your 99 Buick Century? We have to replace ours too. Thought I could benefit from your experience. Thanks for any feedback.

#163 of 592 starter problems for 96 buick century
Jul 03, 2006 (8:49 pm)
After plugging in the fan motor that I just replaced, I tried starting my car to see if the fan would come on (it had been overheating significantly recently and a mechanic told me the fan motor wasn't working). However, the car wouldn't start. It didn't turn over, didn't make a sound. I can turn the key but nothing happens. I've been having electrical problems with the car recently (fuses blowing, etc) and now this. Any thoughts? I'm guessing I need to check the battery, but with tomorrow being the fourth of july, it's going to be hard to do this. Thanks for any suggestions.
#164 of 592 Air Conditioning
Jul 06, 2006 (12:12 pm)
I have a 2003 Buick Century that has a A/C problem. This is what happens when I turn the A/C on:
1. The compressor kicks on, however, only hot air comes out. Almost like it's pulling air from the outside (like it was on Vent).
2. I put the A/C on MAX but still only hot air.
I have done some troubleshooting and this is what I've done:
1. Made sure the compress is working and it is.
2. Tried to see if it was low on freon - it wasn't.
3. Check the fuses, they were fine.
What else should I look for? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you check to see if you have both of the temp selector knobs pulled down to the blue area for cold and not in the red area for hot? Just the opposite happened to me last winter when i had the selector in the blue one cold morning and liked to froze to death. Made me feel kinda silly later.

Yes, I did make sure it was in the down position (blue area). Thanks for the suggestion!

#168 of 592 1999 Buick Century wont start after engine install
Jul 10, 2006 (3:37 am)
I installed a new engine and computer in my 1999 Century and when I finsihed and went to start it, It did nothing no crank, the starter didnt even make a sound. I did notice that the security light stays on now. Is it a way to reset it because I thinks it just wont start because of security?

I also have a similar problem. Although it didn't happen "just one day", my 96 century windows do not go up easily. They usually come down fine, but will not go up easily. I have lubricated the belt and that has not helped. I don't have the tools to be able to remove the motor to check it out. The car is in good shape, and there is no rust on the door interiors. All windows exhibit similar 'behavior', but 2 windows are definitely worse off. Any thoughts on troubleshooting or correcting? Thanks.
