SOURCE: How to install Mcpherson Struts 1996 Buick Century

The problem is that the springs have to be compressed. Its a dangerous job to do yourself for obvious reasons. I'm pretty sure you could rent a spring compressor from an auto parts store. The strut assembly is attached to the tie rod ends. You will need an alignment for sure.

Personally, I'd be hesitant to do it for those reasons. I'd say if you do it, please be careful that those springs are compressed properly and that you get that alignment after.

SOURCE: how to replace a coolant level sensor, 2000 buick century

The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.

SOURCE: I am looking to replace the rear struts of my 97

If you're replacing the springs as well, you can put regular shocks/struts in. The springs on that car didn't offer full support as they were designed to work in conjunction with the support from the air struts also. Just make sure the new springs are specified for a car without air ride. You will also need to remove the fuse/relay for the air ride compressor because the veh. goes through a "air pressure replenishment" cycle every time the key is turned to run. The compressor will then run for 7 minutes until it times out when it determines that it isn't doing anything to ride height.

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.
