Get the codes pulled. The check engine soon light means there is a issue that needs to be addressed. Once you have the codes pulled you can use them to diagnose and locate the issue.

The check engine light is blinking on my buick century 2003 and the engine is making a noise


If your check engine light is blinking it is trying to tell you that there is something wrong with your engine and/or engine control system that needs IMMEDIATE ATTENTION to prevent SEVERE DAMMAGE to your engine or your catalytic converters.

My recommendation is to STOP OPERATING THE VEHICLE and get it towed somewhere so it can be properly diagnosed and repaired.

When applying breaks and then releasing and accelerating there is a knocking sound coming from under the car


Could possibly be a transmission/engine mount? Without hearing/feeling it myself its hard to tell you with any certainty what the sound is, but the mounts are a common cause, also seen severely worn ball joints do that too, but they will usually make a lot of noise with bumps and at that point your steering would feel a bit odd too..

Servie engine light on traction light goes off


It could be your wheel bearings, jack your car so one wheel is off the ground. Make sure the vehicle is properly blocked. Firmly grasp the tire/wheel an shake it back and forth for play.

2003 Buick Century Custom and the Service Engine Soon Light


You will need to have a reputable mechanic do a diagnostic check on the car to determine the problem. This should pull up a code number in your car's computer and help point the mechanic and you in the direction of the malfunctioning part/s.

Just today, I had a diagnostic check done on mine for nearly $45.00. The mechanic was able to figure out the reason why my service engine light was staying on. I knew my car's radiator fans failed to run when car's engine was hot except when the A/C was running. I had changed out the sensors and was never able to get the light to go out or get the fans working. They were able to determine that the 25 amp fuse for the fans located under the hood was blown. After replacing it, the fans worked as they should, my car runs cooler and the engine service engine light is now out. Of course there are many possible reasons why the service engine light may come on including problems with the car's emissions. A reputable mechanic can solve your problem.
