2002 Buick Century Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 242010

Century 3.1L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 135,000 miles


Today, I learned that my manifold intake gasket is leaking, AGAIN! I replaced the gasket ($900+ repair) only 3.5 years ago. According to info on line, it could be a bad GM part or the Dex coolant. I bought this Buick new and had a few other reapirs done (thremostat and side window) besides the intake gasket. I also lost a few center hub caps ($40.00 a piece to replace) and the rubber seals around my doors sag. Also, see my complaint in the "windows" section. Pesky (expensive) things that annoy a busy working woman with two babies.
