How do you replace a low coolant sensor on a 2001 Buick Century?

Take it to the nearest mechanic and fork out about $200... Or for a real answer...the sensor is on the passnger side of the radiator below the radiator cap. It is black and square and has a single plug at the bottom. It is held onto the radiator by a metal retaining clip. Remove the clip and the sensor pulls out of the radiator. Disconnect the wire by pulling carefully on the plastic lock and pull on the plug. Fluid will leak out to level of sensor. Drain or place catch basin below sensor plug to catch radiator fluid. Sensor can be purchased through a dealer for around $70 US, or Aut*Z*ne for under $40 US. Your choice.

Will the radiator over flow make the transmission go up?

If you mean does the transmission fluid level rise, the usual problem is a leak in the trans cooler built in to the radiator. Depending on engine temperature fluid will transfer back and forth between the radiator fluid and the auto trans fluid changing the level and color of both.

The radiator symbol is showing but the reservoir is full what is the problem?

It could be one of several issues: 1. The sensor in the radiator overflow bottle is stuck, disconnected or damaged 2. The actual level of fluid in the radiator itself is low, perhaps caused by a blockage or interruption in the overflow tube that connects the radiator and the overflow bottle 3. The thermostat is stuck in the open or closed position, requiring a replacement of the thermostat First things to check: 1. While the vehicle engine is COLD, check that the level of fluid in the reservoir does not exceed the COLD level. 2. Run the vehicle for 20 to 30 minutes of normal driving, then check the reservoir level. The level of fluid in the reservoir should be raised to the HOT level. 3. Let the engine completely cool for several hours. Check the reservoir level again. It should have dropped back down to the COLD level. If the level in the reservoir does not change between the times the engine is cold and hot, you have a problem with your engine's cooling system. Wait several for the engine to completely cool, then open the radiator cap and verify that the radiator is full of fluid. Check the overflow tube that runs from the radiator neck to the reservoir bottle to ensure that it is free of obstructions.
