Engine Cooling problem
2000 Buick Century 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 135000 miles
It overheated (guage creeped up to close to the red line then bounced up and down around it for a few minutes before finally hitting the max line and turning on the temp light - pulled off and let it cool. Once cooled down I started the car back up
Started right up temp guage was back to normal. Car engine sputtered and ran rough for a second then stalled.
Restarted same thing happened but didnt stall. Instead the "Trac OFF" light came on as well as the oil change light.
Restarted again and again idle was good for 10 seconds - then rough idle and the "Track Off" light turned on. Decided to drive anyways.
Trying to accellerate and the car was just a slug. No real power. Took half a mile to get to speed. Can't hold speed up hills. Engine is not reving high at all. Sounds like an exhaust leak but from the engine compartment.
have the same problem?
