Hesitating on a 2006 Buick Lacrosse


this is for a 3.6L engine, should be the same either way. doesnt seem extremely difficult

  1. Turn the ignition OFF.
  2. Remove the ignition coil.
  3. Use compressed air in order to remove debris from the spark plug cavity.
CAUTION: Refer to Safety Glasses and Compressed Air Caution in Service Precautions .

NOTE: Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so could result in engine damage because of dirt or foreign material entering the cylinder head, or by the contamination of the cylinder head threads. The contaminated threads may prevent the proper seating of the new plug. Use a thread chaser to clean the threads of any contamination.
  1. Remove the spark plug.
NOTE: Allow the engine to cool before removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove the spark plugs from a hot engine may cause the plug threads to seize, causing damage to cylinder head threads.

INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
  1. Ensure that the spark plug gap is equivalent to the spark plug gap specification. Refer to Ignition System Specifications.
NOTE:
  • Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the vehicle. Installing spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
  • Check the gap of all new and reconditioned spark plugs before installation. The pre-set gaps may have changed during handling. Use a round feeler gage to ensure an accurate check. Installing the spark plugs with the wrong gap can cause poor engine performance and may even damage the engine.
  1. Install the spark plug.
NOTE: Be sure that the spark plug threads smoothly into the cylinder head and the spark plug is fully seated. Use a thread chaser, if necessary, to clean threads in the cylinder head. Cross-threading or failing to fully seat the spark plug can cause overheating of the plug, exhaust blow-by, or thread damage.

Tighten the spark plug to 20 N.m (15 lb ft) .
  1. Install the ignition coil.

Inspection

Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.

Missing distributer, How do I install another one?


drive it to a shop and have them do it. What will happen is you wont be able to position it correctly without a data scanner. You don't set timing on these like an old truck. You need to cam sync it which requires a scanner to show postion and then you rev the engine while checking the position which ideally should be at zero plus or minus 2. Just hope this is your problem before you go to this expense to replace the distributor. If you have a MIS i'm doubting its the distributor if you already replaced the cap and rotor.

Replace Spark Plugs


What size engine have your behicle?

2.2L Engine
  1. Remove the ignition coil housing.
    NOTE Remove any water and debris from the spark plug holes before spark plug removal with compressed air. Remove the spark plugs with a spark plug socket.
  2. Inspect the spark plugs.
To install:
  1. Gap the spark plug, using round wire type spark plug gap gauge. Adjust the spark plug gap to 0.045 in. (1.14mm).
    WARNING DO NOT coat the spark plugs with anti seize compound. Over torquing could occur and damage to the cylinder head threads may result.
  2. Install the spark plugs with a spark plug socket. Tighten to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  3. Install the ignition coil housing.


2.4L Engine
The spark plugs on this engine are located under the ignition coil and module assembly. To gain access to the spark plugs, the coil and module assembly must be removed. On the 2.4L (VIN T) engines, the spark plugs are platinum and require replacement every 100,000 miles (160,900 km) or 60 months which ever comes first.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the 4 bolts retaining the Electronic Ignition (EI) coil/module/cover assembly (depending upon vehicle application), then detach the electrical connector. Remove the assembly by pulling it straight up away from the engine.

    5cdc221.jpg

    Fig. To remove the cover, unfasten the four bolts, then pull the assembly straight up from the engine
  3. If the connector(s) sticks to the spark plug, use spark plug connector removing tool J-36011 or equivalent, and a twisting motion to detach the connector(s) from the plugs.
  4. Clean any dirt away from the spark plug recess area.
  5. Remove the spark plug using the proper size socket, extensions and universal joints, as necessary. Hold the socket or the extension close to the plug with your free hand, as this will help lessen the possibility of applying a shear force which might snap the plug in half.
To install:
  1. Lubricate the threads lightly with an anti-seize compound, then start the four spark plugs by hand. Tighten the plugs to 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm).
  2. If removed, install any the plug boot connectors that may have stuck to a spark plug to the EI assembly.
    NOTE Check to make sure the spring terminal is inside the boot.
  3. Install the EI coil/module/cover assembly to the engine, while carefully aligning the boots with the spark plug terminals, by pushing the assembly straight down.
  4. Apply Loctite®thread locking compound, or equivalent to the cover bolts. Install the bolts and tighten to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  5. If removed, engage the ignition cover electrical connectors.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.

I really hope helped with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Replacing spark plugs on a 2004 chevy malibu


2.2L Engine
  1. Observe the following service precautions:

    Allow the engine to cool before removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove spark plugs from a hot engine can cause the spark plugs to seize. This can damage the cylinder head threads. Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so can result in engine damage due to dirt or foreign material entering the cylinder head, or in contamination of the cylinder head threads. Contaminated threads may prevent proper seating of the new spark plug. Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the vehicle. Installing spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
  2. Turn the ignition OFF .
  3. Disconnect the Electronic Ignition (EI) module harness connector.
  4. Remove the spark plugs using a 5 / 8 inch spark plug socket.

To install:

WARNING Do not coat spark plug threads with anti-seize compound. If anti-seize compound is used and spark plugs are over-torqued, damage to the cylinder head threads may result.
  1. Inspect the gap on the new spark plugs, re-gap the plugs as required. The spark plug gap specification is 42 inch. (1.0 mm).
  2. Install the spark plugs and tighten to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  3. Apply dielectric compound to the spark plug boots and make sure no corrosion is present.
  4. Install the ignition coil housing to cam cover and attachment bolts.
  5. Tighten the ignition coil housing bolts to 89 inch. lbs. (10 Nm).
  6. Connect the EI module harness connector. Push in until a click is heard and pull back to confirm a positive engagement.
