Well it depends on your mechanical abilities on the difficulty scale i wouldnt consider it to hard it is under the throttle body you can get to it with out taking that off but trust me you want to take it off and if i were you replace the sensor as well your right there mine went about 2000 miles later its cheap or just follow the line that comes off your radiator on the drivers side it is in the aluminum housing right at the end of that line that bolts to the block

2002 buick century sticks in park positon sometimes

Nest time you can not get it out of park take a look at the brake lights. If the brake lights are not illuminating than you possibly have a bad brake switch. The solenoid that holds the shift lever in park is released when the brake pedal is depressed. If the brake switch is not working the gear shift will not move.

I have a 2002 Buick Centry. The windsheild wipers stick straight up when I turn the wipers off. Why ?

I am having the same problem with my 01 Century. From what I have read there is a tab on the motor bracket that can get bent when there is snow/ice on the cowling, that prevents the arms from parking correctly

I want to inspect the condition of the thermostat of 2002 Buick century, where is it, and what should I look for ?

Are you having a problem with overheating? Thermostats generally are either good or bad. not much in between. A visual inspection will tell you nothing. Replacement thermostats for this car are relatively cheap (<$15) but to replace it can be quite involved for someone that had not done this. I would suggest you take a drive to your local public library and chcek out a Chilton's or Motor's repair manual for your particular vehicle. BUT.... before doing all this, I have to ask why you think it needs inspection???

The cabin air filter for your 2002 Buick Century is located under the cowl in the firewall between the engine compartment and the passenger side of the front seat. To change the filter:
1. Leave the wipers in up position.
2. Open the hood
3. Remove the weather stripping from passenger side of cowl
4. Unclip the window washer line (two or three places)
5. Remove the three fasteners with an ordinary screwdriver (one is easy, the other two were more difficult)
6. Take out the cowel cover
7. Remove old filter
8. Put in new filter
9. Replace cover, fasteners, washer line, and weather stripping.

Do it about every 20,000 km. I left mine for nearly 130,000 km and it was filthy dirty.
New filter costs about $12
