Hello everyone, my name is Tim from the Bronx. I own a 93 Century 3.3 V6 with 92,250 on the clock. I picked the car up in May with 77k, after replacing the CPS and MAF, the car has been good. It has its issues, such as turning the key and nothing happens when its hot (I wired in a button and subsequently got a rebuilt starter and it starts normally) but once running it runs great. The original R12 a/c still works, though my blower motor is noisy on the 2 higher speeds. I've found the car easier to work on than others, I can't complain about a 15 minute alternator job, while it took me 4 hours to do the alternator on my 86 Saab 9000. My main gripe with the car is the 3 speed auto, it guzzles gas above 55, but since May I've taken the car down to Carlisle PA and around the northeast. Its also very good in the snow and I've fit it in the tightest spots NYC has to offer and since our local Mickey D's has a pickup window that caters to right hand drive cars, so the bench seat is win.
Anyways just wanted to introduce myself!

Guzzles gas? That should not be..

Is the TCC solenoid plugged in? Recent tune up? plugs, wires, PCV? Plugged cat? How is the O2 sensor?

These cars are good for 22 city, and anywhere from 28-35 on the highway. What is your fuel milage?
