Are you the original owner? If not, it sounds like air shocks were previously installed and a seal has given out. If this is the case, you'll need to replace the shock.

    It could be....if the previous owner has altered the suspension (I suspect they did, which is why your tire is rubbing inside the wheel well) you'll spend a good bit on parts restoring the car to its original ride height. The cheapest repair is to purchase a new air shock and replace the busted one, this could cost up to $200 depending on what kind of shock you buy but, you may find yourself back in the same position in a few weeks/months.

Water pump; My 1990 Buick Century is leaking what looks like water or antifreeze, it's probably a mix of both because we have been putting water in the radiator. But everytime I park my car for a...


if you have the cooling system pressure tested this will show where the leak is coming from as there are frost pulgs and intake/headgaskets and other things that could be leaking.but pressure testing is the way to find what is leaking for sure.the rad may be full as it will draw water from the overflow bottle until its empty.if you didn`t have this problem until after the plugs were changed then it could be a hose that is leaking that was leaned on or moved to much.again pressure testing the system will show were its leaking.the whining noise could be antifreeze that has gotten on something causing the noise.

Idles rough and low intermittently. Stalls occaisionally. Error code P1137 pulled off of the computer. 2001 Alero, 2.4L Automatic trans


P1137 is HO2S Bank 1 Sensor 2 Lean Or Low Voltage. Oxygen sensor is reading a "lean condition". This code probably is stored from the rough and low idling. So it sounds like you maybe having other issues causing this P1137 code to come up. For lean conditions read this:
1. Vacuum leaks - check for failed or loose vacuum lines, leaking intake gaskets, intake air tubes loose or any other source of un-metered air leaks (leaks after the Mass Air Flow Sensor)
2. Restricted fuel filter or bent/pinched fuel system lines
3. Incorrect input from other sensors, such as the Mass Air Flow Sensor/cam or crank sensors, which may not always drop a separate code
4. Engine misfire ? Yes I know this one may seem weird. You might think that if there is a misfire then you will have all that unburned fuel and it should read rich; right? Well the O2 sensors read only oxygen content in the exhaust, so if you have all that unburned fuel from incomplete combustion then, you guessed it, you also have all that unburned oxygen. High O2 content in exhaust equals a lean reading!

Check engine light on; engine codes P0171 and P0174


p0171 is lean exhaust bank one ( passenger side) and p0174 is lean exhaust bank 2 ( drivers side). First we need to look for vacuum leaks, low fuel pressure, Intake air leaks after the mass air flow sensor, pvc system. Because you have both sides lean I would start looking at these spots.

Weird Noise


Sounds like a wheel bearing.You need a mechanic with a lift and some heavy tools. It's not a big deal.
