You must have the car put up on a rack and all the parts inspected, you have something that is bent and ruined is my guess. Insurance will cover this of course.

SOURCE: buick century 2000 wipers

I found the following description on the web, this covers a bunch of the questions I was going to ask...

I own a 2000 Silo and wondered the same thing and do see some GM vans with this problem.

When I bought mine I also bought the Haynes Repair manual (1997 thru 2001 all models GM) #38036 to learn how to fix this and a LOT of other components in/on the van.

For $20 it's worth it.

To answer your question: If the wipers stop at the position they're in when the switch is turned off (Fail to park), disconnect the multi-function switch electrical connector. (This is located under the dash next to the firewall and steering column)

If the wipers now park, replace the multi-function switch. If the wipers still do NOT park, check the wiring from the wiper motor to the switch for a short circuit. If the circuits are good, replace the wiper motor.

Note: There are other adjustments needed for proper operation than just bolting and new motor on.

You can have a look at this manual at any automotive parts supply store.

SOURCE: how to replace a coolant level sensor, 2000 buick century

The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.

Piece that goes from rear brake drum to frame got bent. what is this part called and what does it do?


There are three, we'll call them bars, that go to the rear spindle on your century. The one that goes forward toward the rear door of the car is called a trailing arm. The other two which goe towards the center of the car are called lateral arms, and there is a front and rear. The rear lateral arm is usually the one that gets bent. These three arms position the lower end of the strut/spindle assembly, and if one or more are bent, your rear wheel alignment will be out of whack, and your car will drive funny and you will wear out your tires.

Our 89 Jeep cherokee took a shot in the passenger front tire in an accident. Now at certain speeds the front end begins to shake drastically.


First thing to check is air pressure,
Second is to have that wheel put on a spin balance machine to see if the tire's steel bend shifted,or the wheel got bent,or a weight came off.
If all those check out,Then check the steering for any loose parts,
The last is check the front alignment.

Wheel was knocked off? Front or rear?
Most definitely will be a wheel bearing involved.
The parts if it is just a rear bearing should be under $50 , Under $70 for the front, and do check the rotors and calipers and brake pads, that is a good hit . If you feel the need to change any brake parts, always change that part on both sides.
