SOURCE: How do you change the rear sparkplugs on an 2004

On the 2002 olds alero 2.2 4 cylinder ecotec the spark plugs are located on top of the intake, under the cover that gives the engine size,it I think that yours are also located under this cover. All you have to do is remove the four bolts on top of the cover and your plugs will be under there.

Misfire on 3 and 4. 2001 4.6L F-150


There were a number of problems with V=8 engines in this Series. Some of the sparkplugs would try to leave the engine on their own. You need more testing to know what is wrong.

I will try to explain. The trouble Codes generated by your Onboard computer can be too general to identify a specific part for some problems.

There are 3 causes for a misfire. Fuel, spark, and compression. You can have fuel injectors which are dirty or have bad connections or coils and fail to open consistently. Spark issues are more complicated to diagnose as coils are now attached to individual sparkplugs(some models) and are triggered by Crankshaft and Camshaft sensors. A bad coil-pack feeding each bank of sparkplugs can short out adjacent plugs like #3 and #4.

Compression problems between #3 and #4 cylinders from a bad head gasket can cause misfires.

You can get a loaner test kit for the fuel injectors or use a test light or multi-tester. This will eliminate or confirm the fuel injector circuit as the problem.

There are cylinder balance tests that are non invasive when done with a good scanner. Otherwise removing the sparkplugs will be required to do a compression test.

Sparkplugs leaving the engine: They either unscrew or rip out the sparkplug hole. Loose plugs will misfire. BUT there is a problem with removing sparkplugs on these Series of motors. The factory plugs are 2 pieces welded together. Carbon buildup causes the sparkplugs to come apart as they are removed. Use solvent every 1/4 turn, let set for first 2 twists.

There was a Recall on these motors, but a Mileage limit and a time limit of about 7 Years was imposed. Check Internet for articles about all of these subjects, photos, etc.

Please rate my info.

My 2001 oldsmobile aurora will not start what can i do


You may not be dealing with the anti theft, just the basic no start condition the light flashes then goes out,if this was alarm it will keep flashing,you may be dealing with no start from no fuel ,to no spark. Here what you can eliminate,turn the vehicle on you should hear the fuel pump go on.If you dont,then your dealing with a fuel problem. For spark remove one sparkplug at the coil leave a 1/4 air gap and crank the engine if you dont have spark your dealing with a spark problem.

Can i replace that valve seals without take the heads out in a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora v6


yes it can be done, but its better to remove the heads...
, use one of these methods,
#1
you need to get the cylinder on the compression stroke (both valves closed) remove spark plug and make sure the engine will NOT turn over !!
using a compressor and sparkplug adapter fill the cylinder with air which will hold the valves closed and with the springs removed change the seals " maintain the air pressure or the valves will fall into the cylinder !!!!! "

also if the cylinders have poor compression then air will leak and this will not work use method #2

method #2 as above but use string or rope to fill cylinder and keep the valves in place if an air source is not handy.....

Can't find all spark plugs


Well seeing as u don't specify the year or engine u have in ur monte carlo, it's kinda har to tell u where they are.If it's a V6, the 3 rear sparkplugs are behind the engine under the manifold. Most times the rear engine mount must be removed and the engine preid to reach the sparkplugs from underneath.

Good luck.
