Afraid that's probably an internal tranny issue, probably in the valve body or torque converter

I have a 2000 buick century and it will shift for a little while then after a while it would stall and out dont shift then cut off whst can that be

You need t have the computer control module scanned for fault codes, guessing is not a cost effective way to approach the problem. But if I must guess you have a defective transmission if no fault codes are in memory.

Buick Century 2000 gear shifter moves freely will not start

Sounds like your shift cable came unhooked or just plain Broke, it hooks to shifter and hooks to transmission, If it moves freely I would say it's Broken, and that is why car won't start cause it is still in drive

Trans shifts hard somtimes but not all the time not predictable

Have the vehicle scanned. If you have a code for Maximum Adapt/Long shift, replace the EPC pressure control solenoid. This is a real common failure on the 4t65e transmission.

2001 Buick Century transmission failure


This is not a big problem with this car . I ran a garage for a bunch of years and we had a lot of them come through and me and my workers owned a few of them they are really good cars, with very few transmission problems. You just have to have your teenager not beat on it and come to a complete stop before shifting from drive to reverse or vice versa. If you have anymore questions ill be more then happy to answer them, also if you can please rate me id appreciate it.
