Question about 1991 Buick Century
Did the starter make a high pitch whirring sound? Because if it did then either your starter is loose in the houseing and you need to tighten it up, or the teeth on the flywheel have been chipped off. Sometimes you can turn the engine by hand by moving the front balancer on the engine and this will move the teeth enough to get it started. However, most engines stop on 3 or four places every time they shut off. This gives you a 1 in 3 or one in 4 chance of this happening every time you start the car. I would check the starter first. If it's tight you can pull the starter and look at the teeth on the flywheel. If they're chipped it would be worth having it replaced. Keep in mind it's going to mean either pulling the engine or the transmission to fix it.
