Question about 2000 Buick Century

2 Answers

Slippy Tranny 2000 Buick Century....Runs great and the transmission is as smooth as silk, usually. About once a week, seemingly when i run the vehicle for a long distance, the transmission feels like it slips and shifts hard up through all gears and also when downshifting. Is there a sensor of some kind for the transmission or do I need to replace/rebuild it. I've been told to check the plugs for "misses" as well. Any suggestions?

Had the same problem. had the soiniod body changedbeginning of winter. Tranny shift Smoother but problem can back the next spring but less often then before.

Noticed that it was happening on hot day and after driving no more than an hour. Noticed that it was happening also in stop and go traffic.

Sometimes just putting the Tranny at Park and stopping the engine on a RED light fixes the problem.

I haven't gone back to the Tranny Shop.

I have a buick century 3.1 2000 and when i put it in drive or reverse after a couple mins it runs bad then shutsoff but if i put it in N IT runs great what can that be ?


I would check for a vacuum leak or a plugged up catalytic converter. It could be a number of things, but that is a start. If it feels like the transmission is dragging the engine down it could be your lock up converter in the transmission.

What is causing my car to cut off then start again after 10 mins..Buick century 2000 3.1


In this year the most common reason is a defective crankshaft position sensor, but you really need the OBD2 engine control fault codes read to confirm this fault is present. This OBD2 fault code test can be run for free by any Autozone or other chain auto parts store.

1996 buick century v6 3.1L all of sudden not wanting to start but after a couple mins of turning key to start, finally starts and then runs great. now problem only occuring at starting of vehicle. once...


It sounds to me like the fuel system is not getting primed during the initial start up. By cycling the key several times, the fuel pump has time to deliver enough fuel to start the engine. The inexpensive way to go at this point is to change the fuel filter. It is cheap and one of the first things to check. Hope this helps.

Need buick century egr diagram


If your car runs bad with an EGR code then I would suggest that the EGR valve be replaced. I would like to know what code was set on your computer. It would help greatly. When the EGR malfunctions, you will have rough idle and possible stalling. If you have a code indicating EGR it may also condem the cat converter.Please show any codes that are set. Thanks Moe
