SOURCE: spark plugs on 2002 Saturn vue

just completed a plug removal and install on my '02 awd v6. if you have the time and patience it's straight forward; common sense was most helpful. to gain access to the plugs, both fore and aft, you must remove, in short, everything near to, associated with, the air intake system. common tools plus a 1/4 socket, with 8 inch extension to hold a #10 star bit. these star bolts are under the rectangular plastic plate atop the intake. once you have those out, disconnect all the wiring, carefully. lift the intake out, look for plug covers, fore and aft, ignition assembly lays atop each row of three plugs. with the hands of a surgeon, remove the ignition assembly, and by golly ye shall see your reward. easy from then on.
replaced my plugs with the iridium 'honeys'; marked improvement in starting, acceleration, smoothnes, noise, and gas mileage to the value of + 3.0%. changed out the oil with mobile1 extended performance, changed transmission fluid. took a shower. time involved, 7.0 hrs. dealer be damned,,priceless!

SOURCE: spark plugs

Disclaimer: I am not a mechanic. I am a DIY'er and I have done this in my home garage.

If you have a basics mechanics tool set you should be able to complete this in a couple hours on the weekend. I don't have the exact nuts and bolts to remove, but I took the least as I could. The issue is the intake manifold removal...

Tools needed:
- metric socket set with varying extensions
- shoplight
- rubber mallet or hammer and a piece of 2x4
- bungee cord with hooks
- shopvac
- digital camera - take pictures to refer back to later, just a backup

- Spark plugs
- Spark plug wires - get the good ones, cheap go bad very quickly(see my other posts on hesitation)
- paper towel - used to plug manifold holes
- plastic cups - used to keep track of all those nuts and bolts
- gasket? I don't recall if I needed one or not?

1. shop vac as much crud off the engine that you can
2. have work bench or table nearby with tools and supplies

1. Look over and study the compartment and determine what bots/nuts need to be removed. I tried to leave as much attached as I could, but you may need to remove them later .
2. Start taking pictures of engine from all angles, closeups are best
3. From front to back, start removing nuts/bolts and put them in cups and mark appropriately. These cups should be arranged on your workbench in such a way that the first to come off is the last to put on.
3. When you get to a point where you think you can remove the manifold, give it a few taps with a rubber mallet to loosen a bit. If you don't have a rubber hammer, use a reg hammer with a piece of wood. You should now be able to lift it off the block. Be careful not to get dirt in the manifold holes, and stuff holes with paper towels. Since their are still connections from other parts of the compartment to the intake, you will not be able to take it out of the compartment. Use the bungee cord and wrap around the manifold and hang from the hood. You will need to adjust the cord to balance as best as possible.

4. Should be able to remove wires and plugs and replace them.

Hope this helps and good luck!

SOURCE: 2003 saturn vue. replaced spark plugs and the

Did you use the recommended plugs or did you use a new style like E-3 or Bosch +4 or something similar. Sometimes using a plug other than the original type can cause problems. Check and make sure all the wires or plug connections to the plugs are secure. Check to see if a spark plug has a cracked insulator. If you used antiseize on the threads make sure none of it got on the spark plug electrode or it will missfire.

Hope these ideas help.

How to change spark plugs on a 2009 Saturn Outlook

Get a spark plug socket for 3/8" ratchet and a 3/8" ratchet extension probably at least 3" to go with your 3/8" ratchet. The socket must match the size of your new spark plugs. Find them and replace them by removing the boot (rubber wire) on top of each plug. However many cylinders you have = how many spark plugs. Find them all. Put a little oil on the threads of the new ones so they don't sieze.

Where are the spark plugs on a 2007 saturn vue 3.5 v6

This is not correct spark plug replacement for the 3.5 liter Honda engine in the 2004 and newer Saturn Vues. The spark plugs are simply underneath the coil packs right on the the top of the valve covers. You do not need to take off the intake manifold to change the spark plugs on the 3.5 liter v6
