#514 of 592 Where to buy a power window motor for century 95?
Oct 21, 2010 (5:27 am)
I was the victim of predatory towing; worse is that the guy messed up my driver's side door, so the power window won't work (buick century 1995 3.1 liter 6 cyl). It needs a new power window motor. How can I find the number to this part to order it? My mechanic said he'd install it for me if I got a replacement motor -- either used or new one. Can this be something that can be pulled at a junkyard? Thanks.

#516 of 592 Odometer not working Century 95 V6 3.1
Nov 19, 2010 (2:02 pm)
I have two questions about my Buick Century. I'll ask one here and the other separately; they're two different issues. My odometer (and trip odometer) stopped working. Brought it to my mechanic--who's also a friend. He tried to tighten the contacts and clean in & around speed sensor. The fix lasted ten minutes. Odometer stopped working after the first bump in the road. Did this twice. Now we're shopping for a speed sensor plug. Is there a difference between the actually speed sensor and the plug, or do they come attached as one unit? He said he'd first replace the speed sensor plug to see what happens (so as to keep the price down). Then, if that doesn't work, go from there. Could the problem be coming from the dashboard end of the connection? Any advice is appreciated.

#518 of 592 2002 Century Gas Guage
Jan 05, 2011 (5:41 pm)
My gas gauge started to act flukey and undependable. Had pump & gage assy replaced at
local garage. $500. Worked OK for about 2 months - now has stuck at 3/4 to full and I know it is about to run out of gas at 320 miles (thanks to ethanol). Took back to garage, they said
again that they replaced it but I have some serious questions because the story don't check
with what I can figure out just by commons sense and math. Anybody know is there any where that I can disconnect wires between tank and gauge and do a do an electrical or continuity test ?

I have a 2002 century. Similar problem dropped from 26 to 22 MPG in
winter. I relate it to the additive, whether ethanol or some other
mandated concoction legislated by our know nothing but everything govmnt

My problem is that the car runs fine most of the time. Perfectly. Then suddenly, won't start. Will crank, but not catch. I can let it sit for awhile, try again, and it will fire right up. Any ideas?

Rick, Sorry never had that problem with my century but did have it with an 80 Ford Van at
one time. It drove me and three mechanics crazy till I finally found a fellow who solved it.
It was, at that time, an ignition module located inside the distributor assy - but that may not have been e f i Good luck Rojeur
