When i step on the gas the car vibrates and shakes


Is the engine running smoothly? Does it only vibrate when loaded? If so, then Yes, check the motor mounts. While you or a tech are underneath get your driveline and suspension mounts checked. A bad suspension mount could give the same symptoms. You don't say how many miles but if its anywhere near 100k then mounts are a definite possibility.

My 1997 buick century has trouble exceeding 25 mph


Sounds like it could be the fuel filter. Typically when they get clogged the car will run but can't get enough gas during hard acceleration (it sputters) or can't go too fast ( it just dies out and then picks up again ) . You can try replacing it ( follow the gas line from the tank to find it ), they're not expensive, just be careful when you take it off, the gas can squirt all over.

I had a tune up and now my 2001 century buick is not getting the gas mileage i am getting 2000 miles to a tank when i used to get 300 to 350


Have you changed your gas station? I am not getting good fuel mileage when I fuel at cheaper gas stations. Try Exxon or BP and see if that changes anything.

When should i change the oil in a 01 buick century


Same as on all your vehicles
When ever you like

I would suggest 3 to 4 times a year
depending on how many miles you go

Average--about 3,000 to 4,500 miles
between changes

I would use 5W-30 Full Syn,any brand

Mobil one does a good job of keeping
the oil pan at least clean,I have pulled a couple
It is at Wal Mart

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!!

My son filled the tank of his 97 buick century and within 10 miles the car started bogging down (and stalling) on acceleration. The behavior is the same regardles of whether the vehicle is in motion or at...


dirty fuel fiter, yes. But also certain models require mid or premium grade gasoline. regular unleaded has more water in it than premium. Hense the pinging. When was the last time you have your fuel injectors cleaned. Try adding a gas treatment like STP gas treatment/fuel injector cleaner, that should help. If it continues then its the fuel filter or the fuel pump is also going out.

97 buick century sputtering and stalling


He has gotten a bad load of fuel. Try a can of dry gas to emulsify the water, but if there is too much for the dry gas to handle, the tank may have to be cleaned. I would also replace the fuel filter also, the gas may also be dirty enough to restrict the filter.
