Question about 2003 Pontiac Vibe

2 Answers

I can't get spark plug wires off of spark plug.

Aren't the spark plugs under the plastic cover on top of the engine? I see what appear to be spark plug wires that have one bolt each.After taking the bolt off I got the spark wire to go up about a 1/2 inch and it turns but won't come up any further. I don't want to put too much pressure on it for fear of breaking something. I'm used to plug wires where you just pull and they come off. Help!

First off the vibes come with iridium spark plugs so there is no reason you should be taking them out unless you have more that 200,000 miles on it. and they also dont have a spark plug wire its a coil pack with a rubber shaft that reaches the top of the plug. and dont take them out unless your replacing them because they will more that likley break.

SOURCE: Trying to replace the thermostat

if your replacing it pry it out,, no worries,, as long as you have the housing removed, its just stuck,, try not to scar the mounting that holds it, But use a large screw driver and force the thing out,, be sure and replace it with the spring towards the motor

WHERE ARE THE SPARK PLUGS ON A 1999 ELANTRA


There is a plastic cover over the middle part of the top of the engine. You should see the spark plug wires going under the cover from the ignition pack on the driver side of the engine. Undo the bolts holding the cover down. The spark plugs are underneath.

Trying to change spark plugs


??? ...the spark plug wires are under a plastic guard. The plugs are lower - follow the wires. The ones at the firewall side of the engine are hard to get to...some suggest tilting the engine to access them easier...I laid on top of the engine and got them out.
