I need to know how to change the spark plugs on a Saturn L300 2003 model.. its a Twin cam V6

Check for 6 cables in probably 3 on the right and 3 and the left. Disconnect the cables and you should see the spark plug. Wrench them out with a deep socket. The hardest part is getting the thread distance right. like for my car its .032 cm. ask for you size where ever you get your spark plugs. Then tighten spark plugs in with the right torque or until its firm then put the cables back over.

I have 1998 Nissan altima and I made a mistake and ran it without oil and I ended up putting too much oil. My mechanic drained the oil and put the right amount in but it has a slow takeoff

Wierd as it sounds, but it has gone into fail safe mode. Disconnect the negative battery cable for 1 minute. The ecm will go back to normal. Wow. You must have put alot of oil in it. No worries. It's all good.

Need to know how wires go back on starter for 2001 ford explorer sport

the large stud:three eights copper: is the one that the battery cable goes on. the small post 'This ford has just the one' is where the signal wire goes. If you have other smaller gauge wires that have a large ring terminal they go on the lartge lug too. Hooking up your battery. positive cable on positive terminal first. tighten it up. place negative cable on negative terminal. if you get large amounts of sparks check your cabling for chafeing or dead shorts. you may get a small spark if you have a hood light on or assesory. good luck

I have a 1996 Ford Windstar with a 3.8 6 cyl. It

Have you checked the battery terminals too to see if the cables are lose or having alot of acid on the terminals, if so please clean the terminals one at a time by using a wrench to unlose the bolts that hold the cables to the negative first and then to the positive cable but make sure that you do not put the wrench touching both the positive and negative battery terminals or your battery will explode putting acid all over you !!! Another thing is that does your starter ever make a clicking sound when you try to turn it over with key ? When you try to start the car with key that the car starter should make a clicking sound that engages it into the engine so to start it up. If this is not happening then it might be your starter not engaging into engine.

1994 xj6 -- battery will not stay charged unless you drive it at least evry 2/3 days -- replaced battery with cheap to the best battery does not make a diff: Nothing appears to be left on

I have the same problem with my jag and because i only drive her at weekends its a right pain, i've put my battery drain down to cat one alarm as theres nothing left on apart from clock.
Going to try one of those solar trickle charge panels, plugs into cig lighter and put it on dash its meant to trickle charge battery.

The battery keeps draining. bad wiering

to check the battery just do a simple load test on it at your local garage they can tell you what shape it is in . next thing you need to do is check for a dead short in the system , i do that a quick way by disconnecting the positive wire and scratching it on the + terminal on the battery if it makes sparks then power is drawing if not then it's a bad battery .. good luck . all the guys tell you oh go buy a power tester and put between the battery and the wire bla bla bla im tryin to get people the fastest and cheapest way to find the root of the evil. cars nickel and dime a person bad enough dont waste money on a tester to see if you have a draw just do the scratch test .. believe me it works . all you guru's want to sound all high and mighty lol use a tester ...
now if you do have a very small spark it can be a clock drawing power if it is a major draw it will make a snaping loud sparking sound and you'll see the spark jump from battery to the cable . p.s dont try this on computer controled cars / the computers are to sensitive and you could fry it, thats when the testers come in handy .
