Excellent answer above. I took the front tires off and was careful not to snap the plug on front driver side. While up in the air on jackstands, Spray the boots on the front axle and anything rubber with some silicone spray. Try a swivel at end of extension to the plug socket. Basically had to push/pry steering shaft a hair out of the way just a little bit. Distributor cap is pretty fun too if you don't have the right torx or allen socket. Strips easily. Took me a few beers to figure it out.

Well its a very fun job ! The best way on some is through the fender well get a long extension and a flexable 5/8 spark plug scocket works wonders on the drivers side there is a plug wright by the steering column when ya get to that one take a brake you will need it best way to get it out some years are different but put the 5/8 scocket on the plug and then a rench to loosen it good luck its even a pain in the but job for the best of us.

Have a 2004 rendezvous and it has little spark to the spark plugs

Coil pack provides spark to plugs. I would check and or replace that. To test it you will need a Haynes manual for your car and a digital multimeter. It is not hard to do. Hope this is helpful.

2004 gmc jimmy, tried to start fired twice didnt catch now just turns over,i can here fuel pump and smell gas.replaced ignition coil??? still wont fire

Check the ECM/BAT fuse. this fuse controls the ECM and the fuel injection circuit. If the fuse is ok, you need to check for voltage at the spark plug. Pull the #1 spark plug. If the cylinder is getting fuel the plug will be wet with gasoline. Put the spark plug wire back on the plug. Now crank the starter and look for a spark from the spark plug electrode. If you can let me know what you find from these tests, I can help you determine the next course of action.

My 2000 jimmy stop running. i have fuel presure, spark plug wires have spark. I replace both crank, cam, ignition modual sensor and the ecu. Also took of the mufler tinking it may be plug. Engine turns...

yeah, check the order of the spark plug wires on the distributor cap. Perhaps they might be mixed up not allowing it to run properly and yes, even sometimes stall. check that first if not, then check to see if you are getting fuel at the engine. If not then perhaps its a bad fuel pump...good luck!

No spark wont turn over

Possible failure of either crankshaft or camshaft sensors. Have you run a scanner on your computer to see if it points to anything? Good luck!

1994 GMC Jimmy hard to start and runs rough when first started

i think if you checked the sparking plugs and map sensors then check your distributer its maybe not delivering the current nedded to perform the spark to some of the cylinders

Spark problem

you did not say if you have changed the coil or not. the coil is what give's it the firing power it needs to crank as well as to run smooth. Replace the coil. let me know how it does.

Spark plug replacement

Spark plugs usually are very simple to do, however some vehicles are hard to reach the spark plugs. It depends on your comfort level. If you prefer to not go to a mechanic, then maybe a neighbor would be willing to help?

Spark plug replacement

Just pull hard, it does seem pretty tough, but you won't damage anything as long as its a hard consistent pull. Don't TUG, but pull increasing the pressure until it comes out. It needs to be a snug fit in there to keep debris/moisture etc from getting to your spark plug!
