Question about 1996 Buick Roadmaster

1 Answer

What is required to change the plug wires on the engine's right bank on a 1996 Buick Roadmaster?

I removed the alternator, but it appears that more accessories will have to be removed to gain access for the spark plug wires to be routed to the distributor from each of the spark plugs.

THIS VEHICLE HAS OPTIC SPARK DIST. THE PLUG WIRES RUN ALONG A CHANNEL BEHIND THE ALT AND A/C COMPRESSOR. THE WIRES MUST BE PROPERLY INSTALLED IN THE CHANNELS OR CHAFFING AND PINCHING WILL RESULT. VERY GOOD SYSTEM, JUST A LITTLE HARD TO REPLACE.

You need to drain some coolant. Loosen and disconnect water lines by the firewall- the ones in the way of your wire change. u need to get a diagram of the firing order of the engine so that those wires are correctly connected to the coil packs.

SOURCE: How to remove/replace spark plug wire routing clip

Typically, spark wires are encased in a flexible plastic tube which is secured in usually 2 places with special clips. The tubing material gets brittle over time and cracks /breaks easily so patience and being careful are the key. After you remove the tube from its mounting points, you will notice that the tube has a split over its entire length. Carefully spread the split open at on end then pull (one wire at a time through the split. then reverse the process with the new wires..... unfortunately this is even more difficult and requires even more patience... good luck....

Where is the crank shaft sensor located on a ford taurus 2005.


  • Disconnect the ground battery cable using a wrench to hold the terminal bolt in place as you loosen the retaining nut with another wrench.

Locate the accelerator cable next to the throttle assembly towards the back and top of the engine and remove the shield. Pull the retaining pins using a pair of slip joint pliers if necessary.

Remove any other accessories that might interfere with the removal of the camshaft sensor like wiring harness, spark plug retainers or engine cover, depending on your particular Ford Taurus model.

Move the fuel-injectors wiring harness off the valve cover studs as well to gain access to the camshaft sensor if necessary.

Locate the camshaft sensor around the top of the engine. For more information, see the Resources box at the bottom of this article.

Unplug the camshaft-sensor electrical connector by pressing on the lock tab and pulling the plastic connector off the sensor.

Unfasten the two sensor mounting screws using a Phillips screwdriver and remove the sensor from the engine compartment.

Installing the Camshaft Sensor

Position the new camshaft sensor in place and start the two mounting screws by hand to avoid damaging the threads.

Tighten the two mounting screws using the Phillips screwdriver.

Plug the camshaft-sensor electrical connector.

Realign the fuel injectors' wiring harness over the valve cover studs.

Install any other accessories you had to remove to gain access to the camshaft sensor like wiring harness, spark plug retainers or engine cover.

Replace the accelerator cable shield if you had to remove it. Use the slip joint pliers if necessary.

Connect the ground, battery cable using one of the wrenches to hold the terminal bolt in place and tighten the retaining nut with another wrench

    Inspection

    Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
    If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.

    To gain access to the spark plugs and spark plug wires do the following. In a 2.4 liter engine, remove the ignition coil and module assembly from the top of the engine to gain access. In this Alero model's engine, the spark plugs run down the center of the engine. In a 3.1 liter engine, remove the air cleaner to gain access. The spark plugs are located next to the engine oil reservoir. For a 3.4 liter engine, remove the windshield wiper module cover and rotate the engine for service access. For a 2.2 liter engine, the spark plug wires are located across the top of the engine and require no components to be removed for access to the spark plugs.
