Intake manifold gasket...a friend had the same problem (same year car) and we fixed it a couple of weekends go, so far, no leaks. It isn't too big of a job, just like advertised in the Haynes manual. ==New Answer== A little more helpful, you might need to replace the intake manifold gasket, OR it could be you need to change your spark plug tube seals. That in itself is real easy and you can purchase the seals at any autoparts store.

Where are the spark plugs for a 2006 dodge charger?

The HEMI engines don't have 'spark plug wires' as you're used to seeing, they have coil-over plugs...those small black rectangles with the wires coming from them on either side of the intake plenum. Should be some very long screws holding them on, but are pretty easy to remove. -- No 'spark plug wires' to replace on the HEMIs. There are two plugs per cylinder in the 5.7 liter and 6.1 liter hemi's under those black squares with the two bolts holding them down. You loosen those two bolts per (you don't need to remove them completly) then remove the coils (the black boxes) and remove them. you will see two black rubber tubes (plug connecters) and that will show the plugs underneath.

Where is the cylinders on a 1987 Buick Century 2.8 liter?

There are six cylinders in a 2.8. They are located inside the engine in the part known as the engine block. They are not accessible without dismantling the engine. The cylinders are the tubes that the pistons travel up and down in and they are located under the heads which are attached to the top of the engine block. The spark plugs screw into the heads and the spark is ignited inside the cylinder when the fuel air mixture has been compressed by the piston. The spark igniting the fuel/air mixture drives the piston down which turns the crankshaft and cause the engine to run.

Can you use a radial inner tube in a regular tire?

"radial" has to do with how the reinforcing fabric is added to a tire. And since there isn't any reinforcing fabric added to tubes(they have to be able to expand) there's no such thing as a "radial" tube. But if you're asking about if tubes can be used in supposedly tubeless tires - then the answer is yes. It's an old trick to deal with leaky rims.
