I am assuming you have a 3.1 v6 engine the spark plugs are 3 right in the front next to the oil dipstick and above the exhaust manifold you can follow the wires from the coil to find each plug. The other 3 are on the back side of the engine and can be difficult to get to. Easiest way is to remove the upper engine mounts and tilt the engine forward a few inches with a ratchet strap or something to gain clearance. MAKE SURE it is secure because your arms will be back there. And those three plugs are in the same location as others just on the opposite side of the engine.

My 2003 Buick century got hot and quit working now it only turns over and won't start


Can you check cylinder compression? Hope you didn't get it too hot?

Have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, check fuel pressure and injector pulse. Can you check applicable trouble codes? To check codes, yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader.

My 1998 buick century custom when warm luggs like it has a miss. The electical on dash board are not on, still has power but luggs... please help !


first thing I would do is check all tune up components, distributor cap (worn out or cracked), rotor (worn out) , spark plugs if new check spark plug gap, spark plug wires, check engine timing. if that doesn't solve the problem check engine compression possible blown head gasket or leaking piston rings, check fuel pressure, change out fuel filter. also if your catalytic converter going bad can cause a lack of power.

My Buick Century has started to run a little rough and going through gas more. Besides just the spark plugs and tune up, what could the problem be? Seems as though there is interference with air flow.


running rough, could be a few possible things besides spark plugs, and wires!
air filter, fuel filter, fuel injectors, fuel pump, coil pack, Etc.
Id start with the air and fuel filters!
Good luck, Hope this helps!

Where are the spark plugs located on a 1992 buick century? and how do i remove them? and could you send me a picture or video?


Your Buick either has the 3.1 V-6 or probably the 3800 V-6...you can trace each spark plug wire to each spark plug...I recommend the AC plugs platinum tip as your Buick came with. The Auto Parts store can confirm the spark plug gap...change only one at a time...so you don't confuse the firing order...sorry no pics available... Also use anti seeze on the plug threads...and use lubricant to seal each plug wire at each connection...also makes them remove easier next time...:)
