There are several reasons that can cause your 1995 Buick Century to quit running. The most common reason is a lack of fuel. A bad fuel pump can cause the engine to quit running.

i have a 1996 buick century just came back from mechanic head gasket is gone and there is anti freeze in my oil i guess if you had water in your rad then you would have water in your oil.

water in the fuel can cause an idling motor to sputter and/or die.

I have the same problem... was told it is a vacuum leak, possible around the PVC valve.

yes, it is protecting the motor from damage.

Yes, when idling and driving.

There are a couple of things that can cause oil to get into your coolant reservoir. A blown head gasket or a broken piston ring are the most common causes.

If a car shakes and loses power when idling it can be the spark plug. If a spark plug is fouling, it can cause power losses.

A failing throttle position sensor will cause idling problems when the car is warm. The failing sensor can also cause the car to stall when idling.

The spark plug gap can cause the RPMs to fluctuate, while idling. The more probable cause of the fluctuating RPMs is a bad camshaft.

The low traction light comes on in the 2003 Buick Century if the road is icy or if the road is wet. This is a warning light to let the driver know to slow down. If the light is coming on for no reason, the tires might be the problem. Bald tires can cause this light to come on.

It wouldn't affect the pump and it can cause hard steering one way or other, or it can leak.

The most likely cause of a 1992 Ford Aerostar stalling while idling is bad spark plugs. The plugs should be changed and the timing checked to resolve the problem.

what can cause a 2002 buick lesabre to not crank

User Avatar

No. The idler pulley only maintains tension on the serpentine belt. A faulty idler pulley can cause noise and a loose tensioner arm can cause belt slipping but other than having a similar name, it has nothing in common with engine idling.

I dont think it has one cause it's fuel injected.

Yes a humming out back could be a fuel pump failing. I have gone through 2 in my 1993 Century - 150 k miles - They have to drain and drop the tank to repair
