If there is no issues with your spark plugs, you don't have to replace them. There good up to 100,000 miles but if you want to replace them don't forget to replace the spark plug wires also.
The spark plugs are located in the head of the engine, If your have the 2.2 four cylinder engine. Your going to need a long extension to remove the spark plugs from the top of the heads.
If you have the 4.3 V6 vortec, you can reach all the spark plug through the wheel well on both sides. Just flip up the splash grade and you can replace all of them with an extension and a swivel spark plug socket. The number e spark plug on the drivers side (middle) you can only loosen and tighten the spark plug with the swivel socket and then remove and install by your fingers.
Good luck and thank you for using fixya.

How to change spark plugs in 05 g6


The G6's spark plugs are located under the plastic cover of the engine compartment for the 3.5 V6, under the spark plug wire boots (the plastic ends of the wires you plug on top of your spark plugs). Once you get the plastic cover off you cant miss them, just follow the plug wire cables. They are easy to change if youremember to do one at a time, (since order does matter, don't mix up the cables!). Also don't over tighten them, expensive damage will be caused. Its best to borrow a torque wrench and read the new spark plug box instructions for proper tightness.
Generally if you have trouble finding spark plugs, it might be best to let someone else do this one rather than risk the damage. But there is no better way to learn than by doing it yourself.
if for some reason you dont do them one at a time which is a bad thing to do. theFiring Order is 123456
also the
Spark Plug Gap for the 3.9L is
1.00 mm
0.040 in

Spark Plug Gap for the 3.5L is
1.52 mm
0.060 in

Need to know where spark plugs are located in order to change


Follow the spark plug wires down into the engine, a soft tug should pull the wire loose from the plug and then you will need a spark plug socket to change them.
