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!

I dont want to seem disrespectful at all, but if you were to crossthread the spark plugs when installing them it would be a very expensive mistake. but if you work on vehicles a little bit it isnt a bad job to do. I guess what I am trying to say if you havent ever done something like that just be careful.

I'm not technical but I changed them :) I removed the element attached to the airfilter coming over the top of the engine. I used a srew driver and a 10mm ratchet -- The three in the back are a pain in the arse so... but not hard.

I think you bought the dreaded Opel v6 in your Saturn. If it has six rubber hoses on the intake tubes, thats the Opel. A couple of years later, Saturn started using Honda v6's. A royal pain to replace the plugs, suggest a repair shop because the intake has to come off.

if you've never done this before, i wouldn't experiment...instead, find a friendly mechanic that will do the job and allow you to look on as he completes the work :o)
P.S. ALWAYS take your own WALMART oil filter and use MOBIL ONE, I think your car is 5W20 and takes 4 qts. Then only change the filter every 5k-(when you rotate the tires) and at 15k do a complete drain and filter!
