If it's fuel injected you will cause yourself major headaches by giving it gas (flooding) so you should actually be able to start the car without touching the gas pedal

Sounds like carbon build up on the ( IAC Valve ) idle air control valve. Take IAC valve off and get a can of non-chlronated brake cleaner and a wire brush and clean carbon out of valve.If this does'nt fix it take the mass air flow sensor off and do same but do'nt use wire brush just the cleaner.Afterwards reset the computer by taking the ground off the battery for 30 seconds or pull the ECM fuse out then put it back and this will reset the computer.HOPE THIS HELPS!!

Ive been trying to start my buick century, it cranks strong, but it seems like its not getting gas, its been sitting for about 3 years.. i nee help as quick as possible... help please thanks!

I would say your gas is bad. Three years is way to long for sitting gas. You will need to drain the tank. Spray some gas into the carberator. Start it and see if it catches for a second. If so, then that confirms a fuel problem. The gas is not good my friend. Sorry.

When im driving my 1999 Buick Century the gas gauge doesnt read right, it moves all the time and i never know how much gas i have. what could cause this?

I have a 1989 Park Avenue with the same problem. It's most likely a problem with the float in the fuel tank. Check and clean the wiring and connectors coming from the sending unit in the gas tank. If that doesn't help then you will need have the float and sending unit removed from the tank and replaced.

When was the last time the fuel filter was replaced? you may have a fuel filter that is getting restricted or possible the fuel pump is going bad. You will need to check the fuel pump pressure, and see if you can blow through the fuel filter. Hope this helps.

Your cat should last quite a while now it is replaced. I recommend testing coil packs and module. Change plugs and wires and double check your vacuum hoses.
