1994 olds ceirra soft plug removal

Need to change soft plug (not spark plug) in my boys 1994 olds ceirra. i cant access plug from underneath without taking transaxle out. I took both heads off because the engine lost all water and got hot @shut-down I knew I had to check head gaskets @ heads I thought I could get to soft plug when I took the back head off, but still not enough room. I heard you can rotate engine forward. I have dog -bone mount off @ radiator out. If I cant rotate my next step is to take engine out for a $2.00 part!

I just want to make sure we are talk about the same item.

I hope FREEZE PLUG (silver metal cap) is same a your soft plug.


Please read on if it's the same thing........disregard my post if it's not


To remove freeze plug we drill a small hole onto the plug and use a slide hammer / body work hammer to slip out the cap.

Clean out the inner surface area real good before you put a new on.

How to change spark plugs?


First go buy the new spark plugs. While you are there ask the gap of the plugs, they may need to be adjusted before you install them. If so use a gaping tool to adjust the gap. One at a time remove the spark plug wire and remove the old spark plug with a spark plug socket. Turn it counter clockwise. Pull it out and put the new spark plug in and firmly tighten it, dont over do it though you dont want to strip it out. Put the spark plug wire back on and move to the next until the job is complete.

How do I change the spark plugs and wires on my 1994 cutlass ciera?


First you have to locate it. The spark plugs are located on the side of the engine heads and can be accessed through the wheel well. The no. 3 spark plug will be the hardest for you to get to, you need a spark plug socket with a built in swivel to loosen it and then remove it and install the new one by hand and the socket can only be used to loosen and tighten it.Vote for me if it helps

Need to change soft plug will engine tilt toward radiator so I can get to problem


On the 3.1 and 4.3 V6 remove the windshield wiper module cover and rotate the engine for service access to the rear spark plugs. You can rotate the engine by disconnecting the two dog bone engine mounts and push the car forward with a friend then place the emergency brakes to keep the car from moving back and place a wheel chuck just to make sure the car is not going to move. Don't want to loose an arm. Good luck and hope this helps and be careful not to over rotate the engine in to the radiator. 
Make sure you use a spark plug socket has a rubber grip on it to hold on to the plug while you position it. If you don't do this, you will likely end up dropping the plug into the little area surrounding the plug hole, and it takes forever to get it out to try again. Also, when removing the old plugs, try to remember the angle that they went in on because you can't really see back there. It makes it a lot easier when inserting the new plugs if you get in there at the correct angle. This is for the person who it tinny and get in to different body positions.

Change sparks plugs on 06 hyundai sonata v6


You didn't specify whether you have the (4) cylinder or the (6) cylinder engine..... I have a 2004 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L 4 cylinder and I just changed the spark plugs in it. I believe that the 2005 2.4L engine is the same. To locate and change the (4) spark plugs on a 2004 Hyundai 2.4L 4 cylinder engine: Remove the (4) 12mm bolts from the decorative plastic engine cover. Remove plastic cover from engine and place it off to the side out of your way. Standing in front of the car, the (4) spark plugs are located laterally (left to right) in the recessed area underneath where the plastic engine cover was removed. Note: This engine has (2) coils....They are located above spark plugs number (2) and (3) from left to right. Starting with the fist spark plug on the left: Remove the spark plug cable by pulling straight up on the insulated connector. Using a spark plug socket, remove the old spark plug and install a new one in it's place. To access the second spark plug from the left, remove the electrical connector and the spark plug cable wire from coil number (1) and then remove the (2) 12mm bolts that secure the coil to the engine. Spark plug number (2) is located directly under the coil. Lift the coil straight up removing the insulated connector from spark plug number (2). Using a spark plug socket, remove old spark and install a new one in it's place. Repeat same procedures for spark plugs number (3) and (4). Note: If you have the (6) cylinder engine, the front (3) sparks pluge are readilly accessible but in order to access the (3) rear spark plugs, you will have to remove the intake manifold

Spark plugs


Your going to need a spark plug socket with a swivel, extension, and a spark plug wire pliers. You can access the spark plugs through the wheel well. you can from the top but that takes too long and you can't get to all of them from there. You can raise the front end just enough to give you some room in the wheel well with out removing the front wheels. To get to the spark plugs, move the wheel well splash guard up and out of the way so you can access the spark plugs on the side of the engine. One the passenger side is the easy one to work out and should take you under 20 min to do all three, change them one at a time so you don't mix the spark plug wires. On the drivers side is work on the #1plug (towards the front) and #5 (towards the fire wall) first and do #3 plug last. Spark plug #3 is behind the shock tower mount, you need to loosen it first with the socket, then remove the socket and remove and install the plugs by had. It should take you almost 10 min just to do that plug and a cramped hand.  When replacing the spark plugs, use anti seize so it's easier to remove the plugs next time and use platinum plugs so your good to go for 100,000 miles unless you have a plug failure due to running too lean or rich. Bring the truck down and place the ignition to the run position for 30 seconds and turn off for 10 seconds and then start and let idle for 1 min then go for a test drive to reset all the engine management sensors.  Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

How do change my spark plugs for a 1994 gmc safari?


Hello dechile1313: My name is Roger and I can help you. You will need to remove the engine cover from the inside to gain access to some of the spark plugs. The other plugs are accessed better from the wheel Wells. Raise the front end up to drop the tires down. Reach through the wheel well and lift up the rain shield you will see the spark plugs. Be sure and twist the plug wire boots back and forth to keep from braking the t plug wire ends. Please rate the quality of this reply. This lets us know you received the information you requested. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger
