I just finished doing this last week. Here's the trick. You need to remove the 6 bolts (3 on each side) that hold the 2 engine mount braces (black cast iron and steel, right above the radiator) in place. rotate them up, back and out of the way. You need to have a block of wood or something to put behind the front tire for the next step. With the car in park and emergency brake OFF, roll the car a few inches backwards (as far as you can), then roll it forward pretty hard as far as you can and immediately push the block under the back of the front tire before it can roll back. when you roll the car forward it torques the motor forward allowing easier access to the back 3 plugs and wires. You can follow the other advise here as far as actually replacing the wires and plugs themselves. Just remember to do them 1 at a time so you don't mix up the wires.

SOURCE: my 1991 Chevy lumina 4 door sedan keeps failing

Did they explain the fuel evap test to you and what may have caused you to fail? Most smog tests that I've dealt with only test your gas cap and don't actually test your evap system itself. Gas cap is part of your evap system so when the cap fails, you automatically fail your evap system test even though they don't actually test it.

I recommend replacing your gas cap and giving it another shot as the cap will cost $10 to $20...

Do you happen to have a hacksaw blade? The thickness of the hacksaw blade is equal to the clearance of the
spark plug contacts. You can put the hacksaw blade flat
between the contacts, and make the necessary adjustment. Then, start your engine. Send in your e-mail
so we will know.

I Need 2 Know What All I Need 2 Do For A Full Tune Up Cause I Just Bought THe Car From Somebody N I Want 2 Do A Full Tune Up

on a modern fuel injected car a tune up is pretty simple and i would consider a COMPLETE tune up as follows. 1: change the spark plugs and wires (make sure to properly gap the spark plugs and use some antisieze on the threads)
2: change the fuel filter
3; change the oil and filter
4: change the transmission filter and fluid
5; flush and re fill the cooling system with fresh antifreeze properly mixed with water
6: inflate the tires to the proper pressure listed on the tire decal located in the drivers door jamb area.
7: change the serpentine belt if it shows signs of cracking.
these steps should provide you with 3 things..1 a dependable, fuel efficient car 2: peace of mind knowing things are good under the hood and 3: many miles of driving.

1990 chevy suburban fuel problem just put a new fuel pump and filter in this summer last week i put new wires cap and rotar and plugs started up drove it it worked much better parked it on my hill went...

When you replaced the fuel pump, did you notice if the pick-up line was in good condition or not? I have been told by a mechanic that has over 35 yearsof experience that this was a common problem, and especially now with Ethanol being mixed in with fuel.

1990 chevy lumina, idling problem...stalling...too rich

Stalling and running rich. I have seen this before on a Camero. The fuel pump was weak. Not making enough pressure. This caused the fuel injector to DRIP gas instead of SPRAY gas. This caused the fuel to flow into the cylinder in a liquid form, and it did not burn well. We put in a new fuel pump and the car came to life. Good luck.

Change plugs and wire and engine will not acclerate. This is a built 350 short block chevy with pro charger.

350 Chevy engine in what? 1990 Corvette? Who built it, did you?

Sounds as though you have plug wires wrong.
Firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2

Distributor Ignition System:
Distributor rotates Clockwise. (Rotor)
Find Number 1 tower on distributor cap, go Clockwise with Firing Order.

Distributorless Ignition System:
VIEWING the engine from the Front of the car.

Spark plug wire connections along the back, starting from Left side going to Right side;

Spark plug wire connection towards the Front of the engine;

(To guess I would say you have 5 and 7 wires switched)

Left side cylinder order is 1-3-5-7, going from front to back.
Drivers side is Left side.
Right side cylinder order is 2-4-6-8, going from front to back.
