    Thanx for the replies, in response to the 2 posts----

    The motor is not any louder than usual. 154,000 miles. after sitting for a few hours, I ran the car for about 20 mins at medium speed, light did not come back on. Car runs fine other wise and there are no other signs of the motor going bad anytime soon.

Does the engine sound louder? Does it make more noise than before?
Don't run the engine serous damage can be done.
Is there a lot of miles on the engine?
The sending unit could be bad, but don't bet your engine on it.

Step 1-- replace the sending unit again. Step 2--if step 1 does not cure the problem--believe the light--have the oil pressure checked with a real pressure gauge temporarily installed inplace of the sending unit. Try to not run the engine at all until this is resolved. Usually a 1 min. run at idel with no oil pressure will not damage the engine. 5 min of idle will ruin it. 1 minute of highway speed 50 MPH cruise will destroy the bearings.

What kind of oil did the buick century custom come from the factory using.

Are you asking about the viscosity or brand? The factory recommended viscosity is sometimes listed on the cover where you add oil. Every GM vehicle I've ever owned called for 5W30 viscosity oil.

check fluid levels add if low.. check for contaminated fluid using a white paper towel look for blackened gunk in the fluid.. change fluid and filter if contaminated this can be done at instant oil change for about the same price as you doing it yourself(but you don't get oily)

Service engine soon light it on

it could be both but im guessing that you changed the oil before the exact time for it to be done . if so have some one reset the light for you im not sure exactly how to do it on the 03 century if you have the drivers manual it will tell you how to reset it.

Valves ticking in my 1999 buick century

Did you check your oil level? Is the oil light on? (No oil pressure) try changing oil & install an engine additive for noisey lifters, If none of this works need to place lifters

1 Answer

Oil pressure light comes on intermittently, often after getting up to normal operating temp. Goes off when engine revs. No knocking, runs fine, oil changed...still comes on. 160,000 miles.

try running a higher viscosity oil.
Instead of 5w30 (W stands for winter or cold viscosity) try a 10W30 or maybe more like a 20W50 the higher number is when the oil heats up.
You may try and add a can of No-Smoke or STP oil additive since you recently changed oil.
