How do I replace spark plugs on the back or right side of the engine?


There are two ways to replacing the 3 rear spark plugs.

1. You can remove the two dog bone engine mount in front of the engine bay and tilt the engine forward, so you can reach the spark plugs over the top of the engine with extension and swivel with the ratchet.

2. You can jack up the front end up and go from the bottom of the van. Your going to also need to use extension and a swivel with the ratchet and have to work by feeling your way around.

Careful not to damage the spark plug wires if your not going to replace them.

Good luck and be safe, the easiest way for you to tilt the engine forward is to place the transmission in park and place the parking brakes on with a block in front and behind the back wheels. Disconnect the dog bone engine mount, remove the block from the front of the back wheels. Take the parking brakes off and push the Montana forward and this will tilt the engine forward. Once tilted, place the parking brakes back on and relocate the block to the back wheels.

Follow the instructions in revers to connect the bog bone once again and be safe, better that you have someone help you tilt the engine if your going to do the #1 method.

How do you Replace the Spark Plugs on a 1999 Pontiac Montana


The three front ones are simple and the three back ones are challenging. There are two ways to replacing the rear spark plugs on the Montana.
1. If your arms are long enough and you have longs extensions with a spark plug socket with a swivel build in to it, you can get to the plugs from under the Montana.
2. You can get to the rear plugs buy disconnecting the two dog bone engine mounts in front of the engine and tilting the engine forward. You can do this by placing the parking brakes on and disconnecting the dog bone, once that is done. Place your foot on the brakes and take the parking brakes off and push the Montana forward till the engine tilts forward enough to give you the room you need to get your arms over the top of the engine with the extensions and spark plug socket. Make sure you place the parking brakes back on and put a block at the rear of the engine to ensure the Montana will not move back and cause you to loose your arm or head.
Note that you need to keep the transmission in park when tilting the engine and that your going to have to replace the spark plug wires and do everything by touch to replace the rear spark plugs.

Change rear spark plugs 1994 cutlass supreme 3.4


If you got small hands and long arms, you can change the rear spark plugs with the right extensions and swivel spark plug socket. You can get to all three from the top and leaned over the passenger side of the car.
If you need more room, your going to have to tilt the engine forward. Here is how it's done, with the transmission in park and parking brakes on with a block at the BACK wheels. Undo the two dog bone motor mount at the front of the engine, once disconnected with a friend.
Push the car forward once your release the parking brakes, push it just far enough that you tilt the engine forward and not in to the radiator. Once that is done, put on parking brakes and place block at the BACK wheels again, so we don't lose an arm.
This should give you more room to get to the rear spark plugs and yes everything is done by touch to get the plugs out and most likely your going to have to replace the spark plug wires. The old ones will be harder to remove then the front ones and a spark plug wire pliers will works best to removing them.
Thank you for using fixy and be safe, after spark plugs replaced, just reinstall everything the revers.

Change plugs


The front three spark plugs are easy to replace, it's the rear ones that is tricky and there are a few ways to get to them. 
1 way is you need to remove the "dog bones" or top mounts on the engine. then pry the engine forward about 4" There is a special tool for tilting the engine made by Lisle corp. called a GM engine tilt tool about $40. This will give you room to get the the rear spark plugs with extensions and a spark plug socket with a swivel attached to it. 

2 you can have a friend help you buy, placing the emergency brakes on and removing the "dog bone" again, and the transmission in park. Both of you would then push the car forward after taking the emergency brakes off. This will tilt the engine forward but take caution not to tilt the engine to far forward in to the radiator and place the emergency brakes on.
3rd If you remover the horizontal crossbar inside the engine right in front of the windshield you can reach behind the engine and change the plugs without dismounting the engine. I recommend putting a piece of carpet or a pad over the top of the engine to protect it while you change the plugs.
Good luck and hope this helps and be careful not to drop the new plugs.

Trying to change spark plugs


??? ...the spark plug wires are under a plastic guard. The plugs are lower - follow the wires. The ones at the firewall side of the engine are hard to get to...some suggest tilting the engine to access them easier...I laid on top of the engine and got them out.

Spark plugs


It looks as though you have to loosen the two engine rocker mounts located right on top the engine, take a rachet strap and tilt the engine forward while taking off the left part of the engine.
