Question about Buick Century
The car will randomly stop. Sometimes it starts some time it does not.
Hi Deb, when it stops an won't start pull two spark plug wires off the same coil an crank it over an see if it has spark ! If it doesn't have spark you could have a bad crankshaft position sensor or ignition control module . If you have spark take the air cleaner box off or the flexible rubber hose from the air cleaner box to the engine off , just a couple of hose clamps . Spray some carburetor cleaner into the engine, because it's flammable ! IF you do this an it try's to start you could have a fuel pump problem or a bad fuel pump relay ! One more question , is your check engine light on ?

I had a 1987 Century and when mine started acting like that I took it to a garage and they hooked it up to a computer tester for free. Is she getting the check engine light coming on? They found that mine was running (lean) which ended up being my fuel pump. Which is in the gas tank and can be pricey to get done, between $250-$350 and of course the filter would get done at the same time and that is only$20
