Would be the cam sensor and the best way to find it is to buy a chiltons book to keep with the car for future problems you may have

Cant Find a list of codes 1989 Buick Century. Car stalls and has a rough idle. coads are 31 43 and 44


Here is a code list for you. Remember this doesn't always mena a sensor issue, the problem can be in the wiring as well, or in the case of a lean code you may have an actual lean condition due to a vacuum leak at the intake or vacuum hoses or connections. I have highlighted your fault codes and added extra notes.
GM common codes for OBD1 (for vehicles made before 1995)

Where are the temperature sending units located in a 1992 Buick Century


On the 2.5 4cyl. The temp. sensor is located on the
transmission side of the engine below the coolant outlet. The temp sending unit is in the head in front of
the coolant outlet. On the 3.3 v6 the temp sensor is on the right side of the engine below the alternator.
The temp sending unit is to the left of the sensor.
Hope this helps.

Car won't start? 1992 Buick LaSabre


three core plug hahahah it has 3 coils crank sensor is located at the crank pulley it sits inside and creates a magnetic field and produces a low ac voltage 5 ac volts or less module then converts it to a squar wave to fire injectors and coils

High/low sensor switch location for 1999 Buick Century


Ros.....The heater motor is located under the dash on the right hand side (passanger side). You will have to remove the close out panel to access. The resistor you are looking for will be to the lower left of the fan motor at about the 7:00 position. Illustration is below.
let me know.

Injectors are not opening on a 1992 buick century 3.3


I have been told on some cars that the cam sensor provides the pulses for the fuel injection. Hope it works for Ya!!

No injection pulse


looking at the schematics, well the PCM controls the pulse width to the injectors , BUT , there is a injector coil fuse , its #2 in your kick panel fuse box , a 20 amp , check it , sure hope that fix ya . that would be sweet .

1992 Buick Century won't start sometimes but has spark in the plugs.


Faulty cam sensor maybe - it controls the injectors. To diagnose, when you get a non-start, spray a V.small squirt of easy-start(ether) and if it runs a little then you have a fuel issue. The spark timing is controlled by the crankshaft sensor so that can be faulty and cause a mistimed spark but usually you'll get a mis-fire in those cases.
