This car should have an electric fan. Maybe you mean a new serpentine belt. Yes you can do it yourself. There is a tensioner that you have to loosen the tension on the belt. The old one will come right off and the new one will go right back on. You will have to loosen the tensioner again to get the new one on. It is a pretty easy job. Make sure you draw a diagram of how the old belt is routed.

What would make my 1997 Buick century to keep over heating I have replaced head gaskets and put in new thermostat


Let's start with the simple and make sure the coolant mixture was 50/50 and not 100% coolant. That will make it overheat.
Second, thing I would check is if there's a code for your catalytic converter or oxygen sensor. If your converter is clogged, then it builds back pressure that overheats the engine.
Hopefully that helps. That's all I can think about without actually having done the head gasket replacement myself or having inspected the vehicle. And make sure the heads were resurfaced and inspected as well.

You need to change the "Coolant Temperature Sensor". That usually controls the fan. If the fan does not run, you will overheat.

Torn Serpentine Belt. Bad belt driver


You say belt driver? The belt runs on a series of pullys, there should be a pic./diagram on the radiator support that shows the routing of the belt. simply take the belt off and check each pully( they will either drive the belt or be idlers/tension pullys)to see which one has any "side to side" motion. If it is on a "driver" you are looking at replacing that part(water pump,power steering pump. etc.), as the real problem will be a bad bearing in that unit.
