I was wondering if there was a diesel engine that would fit with my 1990 buick century.

yep olds 4.3 deisel. found in abodys between 1982 -85. 82-84 modles are easy for swaps becuase they dont have a computer. 85 have a semi comp conrailed injection pump.

everything bolts right in
you will need to wire a Glow plug crircite
get a diesel style radeator
add a noughter battery
and maybe have to change the out put ratios of the trany.
hope that helps i own one of the rare 82 4.3 diesel centurys (it not a looker)
but picts of the motor and the car can be found here
