SOURCE: How to change a water pump on a 1999 Buick Century 3100?

the water pump on the 3.1 isnt to hard to change ...

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Partially drain the cooling system into a suitable container.
  3. Remove the drive belt guard.
  4. Loosen the water pump pulley bolts before removing the drive belt. This should help keep the pulley from turning as the bolts are loosened.
  5. Remove the drive belt. Remove the water pump pulley bolts and remove the pulley.
  6. Remove the water pump bolts and separate the pump from the engine front cover.

2000 buick century does not shift into any gear. prndl does not change from the "P" position. A cable is brokeen/disconnected. how do i shift it to drive it home /to repair shop?


The only way to drive the car is to start the car and have someone sit in the car with there foot on the brake firmly and reach under the hood and shift it manually. The shift linkage is on the top of the transmission. Move it 3 "clicks" and that will de drive. The bad thing is once you move it out of park it will not start again until you move it back to park or neutral. And when you stop and take your foot off the brake the car can roll. So be careful!

Transmission bad


Hi. the first thing here is to check the transmission fluid level. If its not low, i would schedule a transmission flush with the filter change. If the trans mission is still having a hard time shifting after the flush and filter change, you may have a bad shift solenoid that may need to be replaced. This will require you or the tech to drop the transmission pan. the solenoids are located there inside the pan and, if they are malfunctioning, the transmission with shift abnormally. while the pan is dropped, you or your mechanic should inspect the bottom of the pan for small metal fragment. if there is any type of metal gear fragments that are laying on the pan once it is visible, this will confirm major gear separation. You will have to rebuild this transmission at this time.


Please rate and god bless.

Transmission on 1995 Buick Century, slipping badly


Sir I would first change my filter. When you do you should be able to acertain if anything is wrong by what yuo find in your pan. I think your clutchs are probably bad, but with out being able to scan it I don't have any other ideas. I have been lucky a couple of time before and changing the filter solved my problem. Your car is in limp mode generally you have reverse and second gear. 1st gear and reverse use the same clutches, so I am wondering if maybe you have second gear only!
