Adding freon to a 2000 Buick Century

I was adding freon to my mom's 2000 Buick Century. It was up past 35psi on the gauge, then I heard something else kick on and it dropped below 35psi and the needle on the gauge was moving back and forth.

SOURCE: Fuel gauge issues

Sounds like you've got a defective fuel level sending unit. It's in your tank, probably attached to the boost pump assembly. Normally the top of the tank can be accessed via the trunk where you should be able to remove the assembly for replacement. While you're in there, look around in the tank with a very bright flashlight for any debris or pieces from the assembly laying on the bottom.

Horrible gas mileage can be caused by very many things. Try to buy an OBDII diagnostic scanner to figure out what's malfunctioning. Sensors don't last very long, and can wreak havoc on performance and economy.

SOURCE: how to replace a coolant level sensor, 2000 buick century

The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.

SOURCE: 2000 Buick Century gas gauge reads full all the time

You're either looking at a short in the wire that goes to the fuel sender, or a bad fuel sender. If it was just a broken wire, it would read empty instead. The fuel sender is a permanent part of the fuel pump, so that has to be replaced as a unit.

SOURCE: 2000 buick century custom. fuel gauge fluctuates

The sender unit has a fine resistance wire with a slider to read the level, the slider or wires are worn and making intermittent contact, the low fuel light is a seperate switch so it will still work.access to the sender is usually under the rear seat cushon, under the soundproofing and a cover, have a look and describe what you have .

My air conditioner works but does not cool . i have added freon the last two years and fixed the problem ,did the same thing this year but did not help .


When self adding freon after it leaks out you get air trapped in the system. After adding freon a couple of times the air expands not leaving room for the needed freon. To continue adding freon with air tapped will knock the compressor out pretty quickly, there's not enough room for both & the air is keeping the freon from being able to cool properly give the false indication of being low on freon. The freon you are adding has the dye added to assist in finding the leak since freon does not evaporate nor dissipate it its being leaked out. A black light will assist locating the leak. The best thing is to have the unit checked & serviced by a mechanic...he'll charge about $ 150.00 to check for leaks, remove the old freon...his machine will tell him how much air its trapped in the system by how little freon is removed. For the service fee he will replace valves & gaskets, where needed, correcting most leaks. After sucking the system down & recharging the problem should be corrected.

Y mom has a 1996 buick century and she keeps taking it for freeon. The air blows cold for a while the it doesn't . Is there a leak or is the garage missing something. Thanks


it definitely sounds like a freon leak in the system, once a garage checks out the a/c system, they normally put in a dye in the system, and this will show where the leak is, and after the leak is fixed , they will refill the a/c with the proper amount of freon, "you are wasting your money and freon, if they don't fix the leak 1st, before adding freon, hope that this information has helped you.

Where do I put freon in a 1996 Buick LeSabre?


usually the service port is located on the accumulator. this is the big can looking silver thing under the hood. although i dont recommend just throwing freon in it without the proper gauges to monitor the high and low pressure. you can damage the compressor and components. if your leaking freon having it repaired is more logical then adding freon and having it leak out again. hope this helps

My 1996 Buick Century A/C will not cool. we have added R-134 and the compressor runs but not cooling. How much R-134 should we have to add for this A/C Thanks for any help


You can't tell how much to add because you can't tell how much it had, unless you have a gauge or look at the sight glass on the receiver/dryer. When the bubbles stop, then it is time to stop adding freon. But normally about 2 cans will fill an empty system.

The first thing to check is if the fuse is good, the belt tight, the compressor clutch coming one, and the fan working.

Low coolant light, temp normal


try adding it via the reservoir. make sure you have a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze. If you want to cheat, cheat on the side of more antifreeze than water. Look for a leak in the hoses and water pump to find out if she has a larger problem that is causing the loss of coolant. look for drips under the car.
