SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

2004 Chevrolet Malibu mix v6 LS engine turns but will not start


Check for fuel, spark, and then compression. Fuel problems can be pump, pump relay, fuse, filter, line, etc. Spark problems can be distributor module, distributor, coil packs, power to distributor or coil packs, plug wires. Compression problems would be piston rings, piston walls, piston rods.

As im putting the timing chain back on my 2004 Ecotec2.2L chevy cavalier my sprockets arnt lining up to the ten and two position close but not on also my timing chain came with two coppers and one silver...


My first attempt was similar to this and ended up being 180 degrees out of time, even tho the marks looked right.

My suggestion would be to turn the engine over bu hand with the spark plugs out first and this should allow you to see if the valves will make contact with the piston without being under pressure. You should feel the tension doing it by hand.

Mine I tried to start it and it backfired quite loud then nothing, no compression at all once all intake valves were bent.

Hope this helps

How many fuel injectors does my 1996 chevy cavalier have?


If your car uses 4 spark plugs will tell you it needs also 4 fuel injectors because the gasoline has to go into each hole where the spark plugs are at inside the piston chambers.

My timing chain went and they are telling me that it is an intereference engine and should have belt rollers... What does this mean and the car was not driven when it went it was merely being started. I...


If it broke while being started you more than likely have very little piston or valve damage even if it is an interference engine which I am not sure of. I have no idea what they mean by belt rollers when talking about the cam chain. It is a chain not a belt. You should be able to remove all spark plugs then spin the engine over with the starter an check the compression. If the compression is good then you more than likely have no serious damage. At that point all you can do is replace the cam chain and see what you then have. Once you get this fixed, sell the car.

Did you change the rubber spark plug boots when you put in the new plugs? Do you have a check engine light on? If so, find out the code and this should help you pinpoint the problem.
