    Yes, How do I get to the back plugs, reaching in with your hands and a wrench just isn't possible.

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.

It can be done just be patient and use good lighting. Feel for the plug and than close your eyes and patiently try to retrace your steps to find the same hole. Do one at a time and don't get frustrated. You do nothave to take off the coil packs or rotate the engine. It's tight but you can get your hand back there . . .

It took me 90 mins (same as an exp tech would take) to do all 6 and I have no special tools or exp. I'm just very patient.

First of all you have to locate the spark plug leads that connect the distributor cap to the plugs,next you pull the first lead out (do not remove all of the leads at the same time otherwise you may not remember the order of the leads and that is important), after you have revealed the first plug you have to find a suitable size spark plug socket(can be purchased from most tool or automotive shops)using this socket on the end of a ratchet with an extention bar unscrew the plugs, if the socket does not take the spark plug out then use a piece of hosepipe to remove the plug. When putting the new plugs in be careful not to do them too tight, if possible use a torque wrench with the right setting but if not then just do them quite tight but not too tight. Once the plug is back in push the lead back on and move on to the next one.

How often does a 2001 cheyy lumina need a tuneup


Every 100,000 miles for spark plugs and every 30,00 for filters like air and fuel. If your engine has a timing belt it should be replaced at recommended mileage as well.

How do you rotate the motor in a 2001 Chevy Lumina to change the back three spark plugs


Place the parking brakes on and disconnect the two front dog bone motor mounts. With the transmission placed in park and a friend, free up the parking brake and have your friend push the car forward till the engine rotates far enough for you to work on the rear spark plugs. Put the parking brakes back on and place wheel chalk to the front and rear wheels to ensure the car does not move and you loose an arm.
Good luck and thank you for using FIxya
