Question about 2002 Buick Century

1 Answer

2002 Buick Century (trouble starting up at times)

Will start right up in the morning, but after 4-6 times of parking and driving it will hesitate to start up again. Wait awhile (10-20 minutes) and it will start up again. Has 105,000 miles. Time for tune-up?, starter?, bad gas? Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thank-you
Reuben L.

    Sometimes it will start just fine and then other times it won't start at all. It makes a click sound like the battery is dead but I had the battery tested and it is fine. I wait sometimes 10 min sometimes 2 hours go outside and it starts just fine. Have taken it to the dealership to many times to count and they can't find the problem. Help

This is likely a problem with the Mass Airflow sensor, it is a sensor that reads the amount of air going into the engine, when it fails it causes severs hesitation and power loss. Contact a local parts store or your GM dealer for a rebuilt one, the part is about $150.00. It is locate in the air intake hose to the engine.

This is a very difficult one to pinpoint. The actual plug on the crank sensor could be shorted,The ignition module located under the under coil packs have shorted in some cases I have seen and do what you are saying.There are extensive testing procedures for testing everything from ECM to cam sensor.could possibly as simple as a ground short.I am sorry I cant give you a better diagnosis but suggestyou have someone with experience in wiring trouble shooting.

With everything you have done the only thing left is the MAF or Map sensor . This is what tells the computer the altitude and air density to know how to deliver fuel.. If its lying to the computer you will have drivability problems. A scanner will show this data.
