My 1997 Buick Century has been over-heating and running rough for a couple of weeks. I had to keep filling my coolant reservoir every 2 or 3 days. I just had a hunch and checked my dipstick and it's very light and milky. I can only assume the water and oil has mixed. What kind of repairs am I looking at? Is this something I can get an oil change and replace a gasket...or...am I going to have to get a new engine?

Sounds like a blown head gasket. The head could also be cracked. If the engine hasnt been badly overheated to the point wherethe bore and rings have glazed it should be ok to replace the gasket. the head should be resurfaced and pressure tested befo ... 1997 Buick Century

2003 buick century won't start. Ignition switch goes clickety-clickety. Can still lock doors and the lights come on. Noticed the "check engine" light but don't know if it would stay on if engine started. Any clues on this problem? Checked battery water. Problem occurred out of the blue just as I reached home from dealer servicing--TX inspection, oil change & lube, emissions servicing, and brake fluid flushed. Original owner and have 77,000 miles on car--regular dealer servicing.

Just because the battery has enough power to operate the lights and door locks does not mean it would pass a load test. If the battery checks out OK then check the battery cables. use one side of a pair of jumper cables to bypass each cable starting ... 2003 Buick Century
