Question about 1998 Buick Century

1 Answer

Heater stopped blowing on 98 Buick Century. Digital display stopped working a long time ago but the Goodyear shop didn't have a clue. Can't afford to take it to a dealer and need help figuring out what it is. Fan made a crazy noise when it worked a couple weeks before it quit. Goodyear's best guess was the control unit but do they mean the digital control panel?Figured I'd check the fuse but that's all I really know how to do.

See if the blower motor will run with a wire ran to it from a 12 volt supply from the vehicle.If so the blower relay needs to be checked to see if it is the problem,if it checks out,replace the control head,the part that does not light up anymore.If the motor does not work with 12 volts ran to it,replace the blower motor.

98 buick century turns over wont start


Rose, Can you hear the fuel pump 'buzz' for a few seconds when you turn the key to the 'on' position? Is so. and I know this sounds crazy, but try turning your heater fan switch all the way to the high position and then try cranking it. Another Buick Century owner told about this in another forum and it works for him and others. Apparently there is a fault in the computer and the electrical current draw from the heater fan has a positive effect on it. It's worth a try. If this works for you please post on this site so that others may benefit. Thanks

My 98 Buick century is over heating what is a possible cause


Wow. It could be a multitude of different problems. I will tell you a few things to look at first. Possible reasons of over heating include low water, thermostat stuck closed, no thermostat installed, radiator stopped up inside with gunk or outside with bugs, missing lower air dam, fan not running either because of a sensor or a bad fan motor, blown head gasket, cracked head, cracked block. I put these in order of simple to hard and mostly low price to high price.
You didn't say anything about noises but the accessory belt tensioner could be broken and causing the belt to not turn the waterpump sufficiently but you would probably hear the power steering pump growl if that was the problem.
Hope this helps.

2001 Century turns off while in motion. No lights display, so I have no warning, but realize I'm not getting any acceleration as my first clue. It's happened at varying speeds and when the car is...


Doesn't want to accellarate while driving. In neutral it will rev up to a certain point but not full throtle. I put factory recommended uridium plugs (6) in, didn't help. Is it a catalitic converter problem or something else? thanks

Imy 98 buick is overheating the water comes out from the pasenger side inside da car..right under the glove box


That is where your Heater core is located. Its like a little radiater that your vents blow thru to get hot air for heating your interior. If thats leaking, its not gunna stop. Take this car in right away before you run your coolent dry and trash your car.

Heater on 2003 Buick Century only works when the rpms are up


Your likely problem is low coolant level. Check to make certain that your coolant level is topped up in the radiator and that coolant is also in the reservoir at the appropraite level as shown when on container when the engine is hot or cold. When the coolant is low, you have to have higher RPMs to get the coolant to pump through the system and heater core.

'98 Century--Sporadic over-heating


Be sure to have heater (not defrost) on when refilling rad with coolant, and leave cap off until rad fan has come on & off 2 or 3 times, then replace cap. Airlocks are common on vehicles cooling systems, and will cause symptoms you are describing.
