Question about 1998 Buick Century
I recently had work done on my 1998 buick century. They replaced the starter, ac compressor, serpentine belt and timing belt. I just tried to start it and it sounded like the battery (battery checked out as ok)but each time I turn the key over, all the gauges on the instrument panel swing all the way over to the right and back again. This doesn't usually happen and wonder if it could be related? They did recharge the A/C yesterday.
Take it back
We have no way to know what
was & wasn't done
You don't have a timing belt as far as I know

Your car does not have a timing belt,it has a timing chain.To remove the cover you have to remove the power steering pump and set aside,water pump,crank sensor,and crankshaft pulley.You might possibly have to remove the oil pan also.Hope this helps.Good luck.

You have a fuel starvation problem, fuel pump, pressure regulator, injectors, any or all of them could be the reason why you are not getting fuel. Someone is going to have to lay hands and eyes on the thing and check it out.

take your car to the parts store and tell them you need to try some smaller belts and if you look under your hood it will show you how to route the belt with out going around the ac compressor, when i bought my belt this had been arleady done on my car so i know there is a belt out there that works, and if you unplug the ac compressor that will NOT solve the problem, the bearings are going bad in the ac compressor and by leaving the belt on there you will open up to even more problems
