The fuel filter is located underneath the car in front of the gas tank.
You have release the fuel pressure. Remove the fuel filler cap, locate the fuel test port on the fuel rail on the passenger side on the end of the right real fuel rail for a 3.1L engine.
3.8L engine yhr test port is located at the pressure regulator under the trim cover.

It is in the side cover on the valve body. The transmission needs to be removed to access the solenoids.

Do you have the correct keys now? The dealership can cut the correct keys off of the VIN number if you have proof of ownership. Without the proper transponder in the key the security system will not allow the car to start.

2004 buick century,security light stays on, no problems with starting/driving, how can I reset turn off? tried the 10 min/turn key to on poss,didnt work


The security light is probably on because of the key tumbler sensor where the ignition switch is at is bad or corroded. The security light on while your able to start it means the anti theft system is disabled and it will start every time. If you want you can replace the sensor on the tumbler for under $100 on your own or run to a junk yard to grab a replacement sensor.

What could be the cause? I have a 1991 Buick century. I just had my heads changed. It ran good for the first day, but today when I was riding I was going 45 mph and pressed the pedal to go a Lil faster,...


First thing I would check would be to make sure they put enough coolant back after they did their work. Sounds like the car overheated and the engine seized up.

Instrument Cluster Panel out on 2001 buick century


2001 Century just hit 40,000 miles and the engine light has come on. Im wondering if this is an automatic when the car trips at 40K- for a check up or whatever GM wants your money for.

ps - from '89 to 2008 I had been driving Nissans, Toyotas and Hondas - Im driving this car only because I gave my Toyata Rav4 to my daughter and got this Buick from my elderly mother as she no longer drives. Its is amazing what a piece of **** this car is compared to what Im use to. At 40,000 miles you start having the engine light come on - amazing!

2001 pontiac grand will not start all of a sudden. ran fine this


The problem may be the security issue. Do you see a security light? Dust gets into the ignition tumbler and causes a bad contact with the sensor prompting a false security issue.

I had the same problem and thought it was a fuel pump issue, but after a $500 replacement ordeal, I later encountered the same issue again.

To resolve:
Insert the key and turn on ignition tumbler to ACC on (Position prior to engaging the starter)
Wait around ~15-20 minutes (The security light will change... I believe it will flash when the security reset...it's been a long time...sorry)
Afterward, turn the ignition tumbler and off
Your card should start there after

Tumbler maintain: Blow some compress air to prevent this incident from happening.

Hopefully this will resolve your issue without the need of spending any further $$$!
