In the 2.2 they are under the top coil assembly,
which is a long plastic peice with the igniton module on the right end with wiring connector hooked in it.
take the 4 10mm bolts loose from the top and the 10mm bolt holding the cable on the right side of the engine head and carefully unplug the wiring connector on the module. this will let you lift the coils assembly
out after removing the 4 bolts. the coil assembly is pressed into the rubbers which will need to be pulled out after coil assembly removal. the spark plugs will be in the holes. Use a 6 inch 3/8 drive extesion with 5/8 inch spark plug socket. after loosening the spark
plugs if they don't come out with the socket use a stick mechanics magnet to remove, it will pull on the metal on the end of the spark plug while you gently
pull them up. this will save you time if they drop into
the hole. make sure they are completely loose.
when you put he new sparks plugs in after gaping them to specs put the long rubber in each hole,
push with your thumb smartly to seat on the plug,
you will feel a slight click, then put the coil assembly
on and push smartly not to crack it then keep it level as you put the 10mm bolts in. put all the bolts in a few turns before tightening them one at a time.

I can't locate where the spark plugs are for a 2006 saturn vue,4cy.Could you tell me where they are located?


They are located in the head.To gain access you need to remove the cover on top of the engine and unplug the ignition module once these are removed the plugs are in the cylinder head and accessible with a 5/8 spark plug socket and extension. Some ecotechs have an additional plastic cover that need removed before you can access the coil cover and ignition module.

Your spark plugs can be located in 2 different locations.
1 if your engine is sitting front to back of the vehicle your plugs will be located on the drivers side and the passengers side of the vehicle.
2 if your engine is set from one wheel well to the other than your spark plugs will be located on the front of the engine ( front towards the bumper/grill.) and next to the firewall.

My car was frozen ( below 32 degree) for two weeks. I pulled it into the garage and let it sit. It's about 45 degrees in the garage. The engine turns over, there is fuel getting to the cylinders and I am...


change the spark plugs,after they sit in cold and you warm them up to 45 degrees or whatever and you try to start the car the spark is just hot enough to ruin them,especially if they havn't been changed lately and theres a lot of miloes on them

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
