Do you know whether or not you have an aluminum block? Also, is that # 6 a firing order for your spark plugs/boots? If you have an aluminum block, the block has to be 100 % cool. Don't even start it before changing a spark plug. It is very easy to misthread when replacing causing shavings to get inside and then you basically have the problem all over again. You also need to put dileletic grease as well as anti-seize on the plug or boot. Any time you change plugs/boots on an aluminum block, be sure that you keep the hole covered as not to get any foriegn object inside. Also, make sure that the gap is correct even though it is supposed to be when you purchase it. It is usually a good idea to change all your plugs at the same time instead of just one if you are trying to trouble shoot, to save $$ like the rest of us. Good Luck, I hope this helps. Let me know, OK?

SOURCE: how to change spark plugs on 2 lt 4 cylinder chevy

Remove spark pug wires from spark plugs. On this engine, it is located on the top. Remove all plugs with socket and ratchet. The socket size is a 13/16th. The new plugs should be pregapped if the correct ones where given to you. But check the factory spec for the gap. There is a sticker in the engine compartment that should tell you the gap. Gap the plugs as required and install them. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN PLUGS, Double check factory tightening specs for plugs. Use a torque wrench to tighten plugs to required torque. If this this information is not available to you, then snug will be fine.

misfires can be caused by faulty ignition components, but they can also stem from other components. Such as faulty injectors, or improperly timed or unseated valves. Sounds like you have touched on all of your ignition suspects.
Are there any codes present other than P0304, P0305 and P0306? If so they should help guide you in the right direction. If not, You might want to make sure your valves are seating and if so, go ahead and swap an injector from a misfiring hole with a good one from a hole with no misfire. (like switch #2 and #4 injectors for example) if the misfire moves to cyl 2, you know the injector is at fault.

Ok i recently changed spark plugs on my 1994 buick skylark. when i was done changing plugs i started car up and smelled strong exhaust smell. so i checked the plugs wires and found out that when i pulled...


Did you mean coil the 1994 3.1 did not use a distributor , sounds like a bad coil pack and cylinders #3 and #6 do use the same coil. I would also check 3 and 6 plug wires this system is a waste spark design meaning when # 3 coil fires it is supposed to go through #3 plug wire , through #3 plug ( ground) through the engine block through the #6 plug then through the #6 wire then back to the coil, Then when #6 fires it works the opposite way, so in theory you could have one bad wire affecting 2 cylinders .....
