I would suggest checking the catlalytic converter. It could be plugged really bad. This could be the culprit to your poor gas mileage. Hope this helps!!

Fuel pressure regulator 1999 buick century its location and is it hard to replace


The regulator is located on the fuel rail. Unless it is leaking fuel into the vac hose it won't affect mileage.

92 buick century blower motor replace? I have a 92 century that im trying to replace the blower motor on. the problem im having is that i cannot get it to slide out because it hits the power steering pump....


Found this info. I don't know liter size of engine? For the 2.2L rotate the engine forward slightly. Some, I have removed the squirrel cage from the blower, then removed. I don't know if that would be applicable on your vehicle? As far as the power steering pump, I'd have to look at mounting bracket. All I can do is throw out ideas, I can't see anything from here.

recommend you pull the vacuum hose off the fuel pressure regulator at the end of the fuel rail and check for gas in the line. You can plug the hose with a golf tee and start the car, then see if any gas comes out of the vacuum port of the regulator. This would indicate the regulator diaphram has failed and is causing the engine to run rich. Replace the regulator if it leaks gas out the vacuum port. The regulator looks like the below picture.

92 octane is wise to use once a month if you drive 1500 miles or more a month. Although I would use a half a tank of 92 octane when doing so. That blend has more additives which is great for larger engines such as a large V8

Yes, this is very important maintenance procedures. Transmission should be serviced (filter, oil, and oil pan gasket replaced) @ 60K miles, plugs at 100K miles (I'd replace them early for better gas mileage), and radiator flushed @ 60K miles. Hopefully this helps!!

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!
