Question about 1998 Chevrolet Lumina
My 98 Chevrolet Lumina has a 3.1 V6 in it. The engine sits sideways with respect to the front of the car. The 3 spark plugs on the front of the engine are easily accessed, but the three on the other side are not. A mechanic who replaced them a few years ago said that the engine mount had to be loosened, and the engine moved over to access those back 3 spark plugs.
Is there any way to access/remove/replace those back three spark plugs without shifting the engine (I can garuntee you that I can't find a way to get my hand between the engine and the firewall).
The engine does need to be shifted to replace the rear plugs, but it is easy. Take out the dogbone engine mount in the front of the engine compartment and push the vehicle backwards while still in park , then throw the parking break on once the engine tips forward.
