I also have that problem and had it checked by a transmission expert. He said it's a common problem with the
2000-2002 buick century's and other gm cars that use the same transmission. The only real fix is to remove and replace the transmission with an upgraded unit. The cost is 2500.00 but comes with a 100,000 warrenty. I know it's a big cost but 2500 is cheaper than 20,000 for a new car
my Buick is a 2000 with 46000 miles.

My car after startup heats up like normal but the guage goes right into the red doesnt appear to be overheating but the fan doesnt kick on either, i changed the thermostat, flushed the radiator and filled i changed the temp sensor is there anything else to check besides the relay and possibly the fan is broke that would cause this problem and if it were the relay where is it located thanks for any help.

I too am having a difficulty with my 96 Buick Century (Custom.)
One day, a few months ago, there was a puff of smoke coming from the steering column. Immediately, my left turn signal was gone. For a time, I managed to tweak the exposed wire, and the signal would work. (This only happened after the car had warmed up.) Now this does not work, and few people know what a hand signal looks like! As I truly believe in signalling, I have got to get this fixed. Inspection is next month, Is this a minor electrial problem? My other signal works fine.
Thank you in advance for any helpful advice! I just pray this is not a major fix, as our car has cost us plenty, especially since she was paid off.

does it blink at all? or does it just stay solid? sounds like maybe you need a new signal arm or maybe just need a little rewiring??

Thank you noodlesknowles!
When it worked, it blinked. It now now longer works.
It seems to not be making contact. I hope it is the rewiring.

yea i gotta 02' century and it does the same thing. i've had it re'aligned, new shocks, balanced and rotated tired and pretty much all i can come up with is the cv joint. cause it only does it when you accelerate or when your turning left. and if someones in the passenger seat then its alot more noticable. this may not be the same problem as yours but it sounded similar so i thought i'd put it out there. does it sound familiar?
#249 of 592 Problem with heater
Jan 31, 2007 (6:36 am)
I'm having a problem with the heat in my 2000 Buick Century. Although I can't find evidence, I suspect I have a leak as I'm filling my antifreeze every two weeks or so. I've checked the floor mats to see if the issue is the heater core leaking, but like I said, no evidence to support this. The "low coolant" light goes on and off, seemingly at random and when coolant is low the heat cycles from hot to cold.
#250 of 592 I know nothing about cars and my Buick is giving me trouble!! Help please!

Ok, I have some problems with my Buick Century, first, I live in Corona, which is important, because I took it to a local garage out in the Home Gardens area to get the cooling system repaired, and ever since I've gotten it back, I've noticed several things, my low coolant light comes on and then shuts off from time to time, and this is probably what has me worried, but I've noticed smoke coming from under the hood through my vents (I have to drive with my two windows that still work down so that I air the cabin out) and I also noticed that something is leaking inside the car, I don't know what it is, all I know is that is a greenish-teal color with dark particles/brownish stain to it, and it's really got me worried, and I don't know what's wrong? I thought the mechanics told me they fixed it?!!!?!?
