If memory serves there is a coil pack that runs down the center of the valve cover probably has a few small 8mm screws that secure it. undo the coils and lift. There are four plugs use a 16mm plug wrench to remove. Be mindful of dropping hardware in the plug wells.

Spark plugs


you really do not need a diagram to locate the spark plugs. If you can see the high tension wires (thick electrical wires) connected to the distributor and to the to of the engine, just follow it up to the top of the engine where you can pull it out. It should reveal a whole in which inside is the spark plug. If your engine has a cover on the top (made of hard plastic), you may have it removed to gain better access.

I need the location of the coolant temerature sensor on a 99 taco


Its at the rear of the engine, close to the firewall. Look at the intake part of the engine block for 2 wires that connect into the sensor plug. It is installed vertically.

Where are the spark plugs located? and how do I get to them?


There are no spark plug wires on the 2000-up Northstar engines. They use coil on plug design. First remove the engine service cover.(The Pretty plastic peice that has the Cadillac symbol on it) Then disconnect the coil connector which sits to the right of the coil and should just snap off by hand. Next If you remove the screws that holds the coil pack (8 screws) to the top of the cam covers, you will see 4 black round rubber boots that sit on top of the plugs. Pull the boots free to expose the plugs. The tops of the spark plugs sit directly underneath

Spark plugs


The spark plugs on the cavalier are under the 2.2 ecotec panel located on the top of the engine. There are no spark plug wires to deal with. The electronic coil pack directly attaches to the plugs with rubber seats like in a spark plug end. Then you use a deep socket ratchet to get the plugs out. Use anti-seize compound when replacing the plugs.

Nology hot wires and Nology silver spark plugs


It is not possible to use Nologi non resistor silver spark plugs together with Nologi Hot wires on my Tiburon 2003. I guess it goes for all Tiburon from 2002 to 2006 with the 1,6 liter DOHC Alpha Engine. But I am still working on it and if I get anything to solve this problem I will be back to tell.
