Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue
It has a 3.8L engine. I've been able to cobble together of list of things I'll need: Spark Plug Wires, Spark Plug Wire Puller, 6 Spark Plugs (AC Delco; gapped at .05), Socket Wrench, 6 inch extender, 3 inch extender 5/8 Spark Plug Socket, 10mm Socket, Anti-seizing Compound, Compressed Air Canister. ^ What I have so far. I've also heard the back plugs are hard to get to, aaaand... Yeah: Really just want to confirm the steps, since what I've read in online posts implies that this will be difficult, while others say it's simple.
For the back ones you can unhook the wish bone ' engines mount ' and you can roll the engine forward the take out the back plugs do 1 spark plug and 1 wire at a time then you can not get mixed up

If I remember right the order is cast right onto the intake manifold of the engine. It has been a while since I worked on one. Good Luck, RAC

I dont care what any hand book says all spark plugs are set to 25th ,60th is stated ?? thats a laugh surely as you could drive a double decker bus through gap ,Ther only reason manufacturers state a wide gap like this is to retard the timing as the wider gap takes longer for the spark to build up so it can jump the gap under the compression of the engine so someone didnt do their sums right to set up the engine .On a cold morning this or any engine will be a dog to start with a cold air and a wide plug gap.Also on modern engines where a coil pack is used and not a oil filled air cooled coil on the side of the engine in the air flow then premature failure of the col pack is imminant ,combine this with the plastic engine cover with sound proofing and the heat of the climate here in spain in summer and its a regular occurance of misfiring engines caused by wide plug gaps and overheated coil packs ,I always remove the soundproofing on customers cars here and do not tell them especially on the ML series diesel mercs as if a injector starts to blow past the seal a bit then it melts the foam and clags up the injector resulting in the black death as the melted foam is rock hard around the injector
,only cure is to remove the head ..Like the V6 S type jaguars -the amount of coil packs i have changed on these cars ,and it caused by wide plug gaps where no mechanic can be bothered to remove the inlet manifold to gain access to the plugs and them plastic sound covers restricting air flow.
