I had a simaler problem(still having problems but not this one anymore) i had a local mech. look at it and he said it must be a vacume leak,but it stumped him as it would shut down then u pull over and wait a min. and it would start and run fine for a few miles or days...i followed the "air/vacume" line off the pcv vale i think to the back of my engine near firewall and on the intake right below the coilpack was a hose loose that came out of a rubber t shaped connection,i put it back in and have never had this problem again...im on a new problem now..lol...hope this helps you out...good luck to all buick owners..:)

Why does my service engine soon light come on when the car is working properly but not when it doesn't?


The light is in test mode when you start, so you can check the bulb is working. The light has nothing to do with whether you stall it only estimates whether you need a service based on time, number of starts (and probably some other parameters - perhaps someone else knows what they are).

I have a 1998 Buick Century. Yesterday while driving the car's oil light would turn-on when I stopped at a stop sign and when I accelerated the oil light turned-off. I pulled into a gas station and...


The oil light coming on when stopped at a stop sign tells me your engine was already damaged before you had the power loss problem. I would not waste the 650 to put in an oil pump. You would be further ahead to just replace the engine.

Service engine light


Its probably the fuel pump, it might be going out soon.  Usually its from running your car to E all the time, you should try to not let it get past 1/4, what it does is cause to mush strain on the fuel pump. The long delay to start it is from that along with the slight pull or **** when it takes off. I can't tell you if it will eventually go out soon or later, but the problem is caused by the fuel pump.

1987 Buick Century Limited V-6 engine w/ac. Engine cranks but won't start. Instrument panel light shows "Service Engine Soon". Also light shows "Oil Choke". And light shows picture of battery.


I took my car to my mechanic. He did a diagnostic circuit test on the engine and then replaced the distributer ignition module and camshaft and crankshaft position sensors.
