Question about 1995 Pontiac Grand Am

2 Answers

How can i change plugs & wires on 1995 Pontiac Grand am 6 cyl

I cant even see the plugs on the back by the windshield some mechanic said that he would have to loosen the motor mounts and rotate the motor to get at them and wants $150 to do it.
The car stalls when if its wet out and after about 5-10 minutes once it warms up it runs great.
Car has 82k miles on it should I just get a can of stuff to spray on the wires?

I have a 95 Grand Am too. It is possible to change the plugs without moving the engine. It took about 30 minutes for me to change the back 3. I am used to working without seeing what I am doing. If you can too, a little patience may save you some money.

Your mechanic is telling you the truth. That is the only way to replace the spark plugs and wires on the backside of the engine and the price is about right. The labor is 2.1 hours (round down to 2 hours) at $75.00 per hour would be $150. I also think a fuel tune up will correct your problem. A full tune up includes the air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, and spark plug wires. I hope this has been helpful.

I believe that both 2 and 6 cylinder show up as cyl 2 on the diagnostics tester. so you will need to check the wire and plug for both cylinders.

One can verify that this Firing Order Diagram applies to your 1994 Grand Am, by making sure that the 8th digit of VIN is "M" (for this 6-cyl 3.1L engine type), and the 10th digit of VIN is "R" (for model year 1994).

I would perform a compression test on all cylinders if you've already changed your plugs and wires. This willtell u if u have ay mechanical problems with the engine. Also even tho you've changed your spark plugs and wires did you check your injectors or coil packs to ensure they're good. A problem with either will also cause misfires.

2003 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 6 Cyl - Cooling Fan Not Operating


the fan motor could just be bad, you can test this by removing the fan and connecting a wire to each terminal and to a battery. the wires hooked up one way will spin the fan and the other way will spin the fan backwards so you cant hook it up wrong. I hope that helps you out!
