This is a common issue with Buick Century/Regal between the years 1997-2004. There are some resistors on the cluster circuit board that have corroded and lose their solder connection. This can be repaired at a reasonable price. Just look for a gauge repair service on the web that can perform this repair. Good luck. Ron @ Speed-O-Repair.

87 buick century 2.8 has spark, and fuel, no start, backfires thru intake-not all the time, timing chain, and gears replaced, timing is correct, replaced icm, cam sensor. any suggestions?


double check the coil pack wiring to be sure they are correct-popping through the intake is usually an indication of bad mechanical timing (I know you said you checked it but that is a big possibility) or a leaking intake valve-or wires not run properly to the plugs.mikemt_18.gif

1987 Buick Century - stalling out


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

1987 Buick Century 1.5 liter


You have to remove the engine covor. Then you have to remove the lifters off the camshaft. You then have to remove the Timing belt. The top gear on the timing belt has to be removed as well. then you pull the Seal out of the Camshaft. Then the Camshaft should come out. You put your new Camshaft in, then put the new seal on the camshaft. Then you put the gear back on. There is a hash mark inside of the gear, that needs to be top center. You then need to take the first spark plug out and put a screw driver in there. you then need to turn the bottom gear (where the timing belt goes) clockwise until you can feel the first cylinder come all the way up(you feel this with the screw driver). then you put the Timing Belt back on without moving any of the gears at all. The lifters have to be torqued on. They just cannot be put back on. There is a torque specification for those lifters, every vehicle is different. When you get those lifters back on, you put the lid to the engine back on. Then you are done. I hope this was helpful.
