1994 Buick LeSabre does not want to take gas and exhaust manifold gets red hot

If you've checked your coolant and the gas is good it is likely the timing is off drastically and it needs fixed. I don't remember if that car has a chain or belt. I know most manufacturers change intervals on timing belts run from 60-90 thousand miles.Good luck those are nice cars when they are running well.

When do I need to have the timing belt checked on my 2002 buick century? the car has 102,000 miles on it.

Your 2002 century doesn't have a timing belt. It has a timing chain. Timing chains don't need to be changed at a certain mileage.

How to replace the magnet for the cam sensor

I worked on Buick's for 18 years and this was a bad design. unfortunately the magnet snaps in from the back side of the cam gear their is no cheating this one. My experiences with these was that by the time the plastic retainer on the magnet got brittle enough to cause problems with the magnet the timing chain was worn out any way, so if is worth fixing just replace the timing chain and gears and your magnet Good Luck

crank and no start could be several reasons, 1 no spark going to the spark plugs, 2 possibly no fuel or that the injectors not working 3 could be a timing belt or . chain problem
