You might want to check the ECT (engine coolant temperature sensor) It could be defective and telling the PCM (car's computer) that the engine coolant is cold all the time.

To Jeff Turcotte, this is Lisa McCurry. my question is my 2001 buick century blows warm air on drivers side and cold air on passenger side, can you tell me where the acutator is located.

Lisa. Keep all your followups in the original question by clicking COMMENT under the person you are talking to. That way, they get a notification.

Actuators are always to the left and right of the centre unit. Google 'Buick Centry blend door actuator', and look at the videos.

2002 Ford Mustang GT, CAR STARTS UP FINE WHEN COLD. Hard to start when warm No Check Engine lights come on.

Think about how the vehicle is acting. Starts fine when cold, hard to start when warm. In these computer operated systems, the computer runs everything. Starts fine when cold: the computer has the engine in cold start mode putting more fuel in till it warms up. Temperature sending unit in the manifold sends a message to the computer telling it to stop the cold start mode and it stops dumping excess fuel into the cylinders and it runs fine. IF, mind you, IF the temperature sending unit is faulty, it's not telling the computer to stop the cold start mode and is flooding the engine with fuel cause it's sill in cold start mode. This is my take away on your situation and the temp sending unit is something to check to be sure it's functional. Check it out. I hope this WAS the answer to your problem my friend. It's typical. Luck to'ya Bro.

1998 Buick century hard to start when warm

Although this is almost impossible to diagnose without access to the vehicle, it is quite common for the Mass Airflow Sensor to get dirty and cause this kind of issue. I would remove it and clean it. Cleaners are available at almost any automotive parts retailers.

The security light came on my 2002 buick centry

The TDM in the security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars and it will get worse till the car wont start anymore. You can find a great write-up here: , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.
