No, there is no information suggests that a 1996 Buick Century 231 will fit into a 1999 Chevy Lumina.

The 99 Buick Century 231 engine will fit into a 96 Chevy lumina with a little fabrication.

If it is a 231 V6 it is located inside of where the fuel line connects to the carburetor.

Not exactly sure but I have a 1979 LeMans with the 231 V6 and I believe the PCV to be a vertical silver-colored valve located at the back of the intake manifold below and behind the carburetor.

It should fit. You see, a 231 6 cylinder is a shortened 350 V8. GM engineers simply cut 2 cylinders off the 350's block to make the block for some of their 6 cylinders (the 225, the 231 and the 234). The 231's were used in Buicks, mostly. no way the Buick 231 has a completely different bell housing bolt pattern, but don't take my word for it, fust look at the top of the bell housing on the motor and trans, the Buick comes to a point in the middle and the Chevy is flat. although they are both gm products the buicks and chevys are not interchangable, sorry

using number one plug as front drivers side my 6 cylinder firing order is 1, 6, 3, 5, 2, 4. My engine is out of a 69 Pontiac Sunbird but I believe it is the same as the Buick engine.

231" Buick 305" Chevy 350" Chevy 383" stroker 400" small block 454" Chevy 455" Buick olds Pontiac 501" cadi out of a early to mid 70's coupe or sedan 502" Chevy 501" cadi out of a early to mid 70's coupe or sedan is the best choice, bare bones stock it puts out 500' pounds of torque and 500 horse and without doing too much work to them you can get 1000+ horse out of them!!!!

If it's the Buick 231 V-6 the firing order should be 1-6-5-4-3-2. If you're running a Chevy 305 it will be 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. And if you have the rare California-only Chevy 350 the firing order will be the same as for the 305.

I have a 1969 Jeepster Commando with a Buick 225 V6, the forerunner to the legendary Buick 231 V6 still used today, with a Duetsch D431 oil filter. It will probably fit any Buick V6 ever made.

Factorizations for 231 are: 1) 231 = 1x231 2) 231 = 3x7x11 3) 231 = 21x11 4) 231 = 3x77 5) 231 = 33x7

Passenger side, just above the oil pan, in the back. Access it from underneath.

Either a 200 or 231 cid V6, or a 267 or 305 V8

As far as I know,Chevy didnt make a V-6 until 1978, which was a 200 cid with 80 h.p and 170 ft. lbs.torque. The same year they put the Buick V-6, 231 in vehicules also. before that, Chevy only had the 250 cid straight six, one with the integral head and one without in 1975. If you have a car that's a v-6 in a 75, its probably been replaced.

There are 4 factor pairs of 231. They are:231 = 1 x 231231 = 3 x 77231 = 7 x 33231 = 11 x 21

Pairs of positive integer factors of 231 are: 1 x 231 = 231 3 x 77 = 231 7 x 33 = 231 11 x 21 = 231 And their reverses.

You can divide 231 by 1, 3, 7, 11, 21, 33, 77, and 231. These are the factors of 231.

10 times 231, 231 times 1

1/7 * 231;= 231/7= 33

In 1983, the 3.8L V6 was actually a 229 cid unit

The most popular were manufactured between 1985 to 1987 but there was a 1983 Grand National that was manufactured as well. Buick started this whole deal with the Turbo Buick back in 1976 with the 1976 Century Indy Pace Car which was a 231 V6 Indy Pace Car that out accelerated the Buick 455 from 90 to 110 mph! 8-) shortly thereafter the Turbo V6 ended up in Buick production as "Hotair" turbos (no intercooler) and culminated in 1986 and 1987 as the "BadBoy" intercooled Buick Grand Nationals with the 1987 being the fastest US production car for 1987. Then Pontiac used the Buick Turbo V6 in the 1989 Trans Am. And let's not forget the awesome 1987 GNX...LOL. See the following website for all the good information on this outstanding vehicle ;-) : To see a "Real" Grand National go to and click on "Grocery Getter" That's not my Buick GN.........Mines faster 8-) TommyTrouble I would also like to add that the same turbo V6 was also offered in the 1981 Chevy Monte Carlo. Buick Regal Turbos before the famed GN were called T Types.

55 Percent of 231 = 55/100 * 231 = 127.05.

Least Common Multiple (LCM) for 7 231 is 231.

The composite factors of 231 are 21, 33, 77, 231
