If the engine died you would loose power assist steering and power assist brakes. I have to think it was an electrical power failure somewhere.
Will it start up and idle now ?

My check engine light is flashing, the car runs rough until I get up to about 30mph and it is running through gas like crazy


Sounds like you have cylinder misfire. Any of the large auto parts stores can run an OBDII check and tell you which cylinder is misfiring (not firing). The engine is running with one cylinder out causing the rough idle. The faster the car goes the less perceptible the misfire is. That is why at 30mph the car seems to run smooth.

97 buick century, oil light started flashing, check engine light flashing car shut down on the interstate. what can i do?


Go check your oil first. If it is low or absent then you need to go get some! The car needs 2-3 quarts to get back into range at the least. Then try starting the engine. If the car starts and the light goes out you can drive to a mechanic and have the check engine code read to see what else is wrong. If the oil light stays on....call for a tow truck! You risk serious and complete engine damage if you drive any further...if you havent already!

Be careful and good luck!

Buick Century 97 runs rough and stutters when cold and gas applie


Your cat should last quite a while now it is replaced. I recommend testing coil packs and module. Change plugs and wires and double check your vacuum hoses.

Running rough or fast


If both the MAF and 02 have been replaced, try the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) also check for vacuum leaks. the hoses that come out of the throttle body are very vulnerable to melt from heat.
