Question about 1993 Buick Century

1 Answer

I can't remove radiator cap on radiator on 1993 Buick Century.

I turn the cap a notch and I can't remove it by pulling up on it. There seems to be a metal rod attached into the tube. How do I remove it because I need to put some stop leak in the radiator, due to a small leak.
How do I do this?

How do i drain the old coolant from radiator. does the drain plug comes out or just turns to one direction. thanks

hi,, yeah you just turn it out, right to tighten, left to slacken, remember to remove your cap and leave a hose of running water flowing through the radiator to help wash out all the old stuff.

PS.. IF cant find the radiator drain plug, remove the button radiator hose..

Trying to locate the temperature coolant sensor on a 2001buick century

The sensor is on the passnger side of the radiator below the radiator cap. It is black and square and has a single plug at the bottom. It is held onto the radiator by a metal retaining clip. Remove the clip and the sensor pulls out of the radiator. Disconnect the wire by pulling carefully on the plastic lock and pull on the plug. Fluid will leak out to level of sensor. Drain or place catch basin below sensor plug to catch radiator fluid. Sensor can be purchased through a dealer for around $70 US, or Auto-Zone for under $40 US. Your choice.

Hope this helps

Positive Feedback ALWAYS Appreciated :)

Where do you drain the anti-freeze out of the radiator on a 1993 Buick Centruy V6? Where is the plug at?

If it has one it will be on the bottom left or right of the radiator, Some manufactures did not even install a drain plug. If you find it does not have one, simply remove the lower radiator hose at the radiator to drain it.

Car acts as if it has jumped out of timing 1993 buick century

Well this is a good possibility.If your has lost power,backfires and runs really bad or does not run at all it is good possibility that it has jumped a notch or two. You can verify by checking the timing with a timing light or by removing the covers around the timing chain or belt and checking the alignment grooves on the head and block to the ones on the pulleys.
