    Did this start out of the blue or did it start after you relaxed the oil filter?

SOURCE: How to change a water pump on a 1999 Buick Century 3100?

the water pump on the 3.1 isnt to hard to change ...

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Partially drain the cooling system into a suitable container.
  3. Remove the drive belt guard.
  4. Loosen the water pump pulley bolts before removing the drive belt. This should help keep the pulley from turning as the bolts are loosened.
  5. Remove the drive belt. Remove the water pump pulley bolts and remove the pulley.
  6. Remove the water pump bolts and separate the pump from the engine front cover.

SOURCE: Heater/AC Fan does not work in our 1998 Buick Century

Fan will be under dash on passengers side , Removing glove box might be needed, Gm also uses a blower resister ro control fan speeds. First check your fuse and then check and make sure your getting 12 volts to the terminal at the blower, You could have a blown fuse, a bad switch, or a bad resister , if your getting voltage to blower motor then most likely it will be the motor. These are not to difficult to change. I hope this helps, please be aware I can only guess at what the problem is from my past experience.

SOURCE: Need to know roughly how long it would take to

Depends on your level of experience, quality of your tools and whether or not you have any frozen head bolts. The valve assembly and head come off as one unit on those. To clear the wires, emmision controls ect off of the top of the valve cover 30 minutes. remove valve cover 5 minutes (too scrape off excess gasket material. to remove exhaust manifold from side of head, (assuming no broken/stuck/stripped bolts 15 minutes with good hydraulic tools. To remove head (assuming all goes well and hydraulic tools, 15 minutes. To reassemble, double all times as surfaces need to be prepped and gaskets applied and proper torque on all bolts. It's an afternoon job if you ahve everything you need and nothing goes wrong. Typically add at least two or three hours of drilling and cursing to a head gasket replacement. and a trip for new drill bits and a tap (not beer) for the new hole you drilled.

Have a 96 buick regal with 3.1 ltr engine. The oil filter keeps blowing out. Put a new one on it and start it up and within 5 sec the filter has bent and blown out the seal. I have never seen this before...


Maybe have the system flushed out at a "Lube pro's" or something. If its blowing out the filter, id say something is blocking the flow of oil after the filter. Just a guess

When was the last time the fuel filter was replaced? you may have a fuel filter that is getting restricted or possible the fuel pump is going bad. You will need to check the fuel pump pressure, and see if you can blow through the fuel filter. Hope this helps.

1998 Buick Century front right turning bulb burns out, Why?


Try replacing the seal around the light. You are getting condensation in the light so make sure that the rubber seal on the external light cover is ok, and also the washer on the bulb plug itself is ok.
