Have the tps (throttle position sensor) sensor checked. It could be bad or maybe it just needs to be repositioned. my 92 buick century idles erracticly and I simply adjust the tps sensor and it idles down but is erractic again once i hit huge bumps in the road. the fast idle solonoid is dirty. Takeit off of the throtle body and clean it. It's located on the back of the throttle body. 2 Phillips screws. Clean the carbon off with throttle body cleaner. And the first answerer needs to fix his or her grammar. Go back and listen in English class. I'd be ashamed.

Anjother possible answer:

Check four prossible lo koolant condishin, or faulty or diskonkted ECT sensor. I is even more ashamded. Vakyoum leaksis are anothear pissibltee.

Yes, on Buick Century 1991 you need to replace the whole hub, it is much easier than replacing individual bearings.

I don't believe you have one on that model; however, do check with a buick dealer and if they show one, have them show you its location.

Type "1991 Buick photos" into your search engine. If you are interested in a particular Buick Model then add that model such as "1991 Buick LeSabre photo".

That one should be near the front of the fuel tank under the car.

It's located behind the alternator, you can easily be removed if you temporary take out the alternator.

My personal experience was a tire with a broken belt. There are other reasons but your description is vague.
