L s saturn 2001 spark plug location


Hello there,

On top of the engine there is a cover, and on the driver side there is an electrical connector, disconnect it. Remove the 4 bolts (10mm) from the black cover. As you pull straight up wiggle the cover to help disconnect the rubber boots from the spark plugs. That's it. Hope this helps.

Good luck...

Car cuts off while driving, what's wrong?


Check your coolant level, these engines 3800 II has issues with leaking coolant into the engine smothering the spark plugs under hard stops and or acceleration. Only removing the Throttle body and looking inside and seeing "wet" will indicate and issue aside from loosing coolant.

If your coolant is ok look into getting new spark plug wires and plugs as well a new air filter if needed.

Also run fuel injector cleaner.

Are you getting any waring lights?

Auto Zone checks them for free.

I hope this helps.

How do i get to spark plugs


You have to remove all the plastic covers on top of the engines, but be very careful removing the spark lugs, if you break the porcelain spark plugs they have to be screwed out which is EXTREMELY expensive!

How do I change the spark plugs on a BMW 523i engine and what is the correct spark gap?


The spark plug change is very straight forward. Basically, you remove the plastic valve cover trim panel, unplug the harness plugs from each of the ignition coils, remove the two nuts securing each coil, pull the coil up. The rubber spark plug connector boot should come up with the coil. You can now remove the spark plugs.

The spark plugs are not gappable. Install them as they come out of the box.

Replace the rubber connector boots at the same time, these wear out and can cause miss-fire problems.

Note that if you find oil in the spark plug wells, the valve cover gaskets must be replaced. Not only does this make a mess, but it deteriorates the boots and also causes miss-fires.

See the DIY article in the Spring 2005 issue of the Bavarian Autosport - Fast Times newsletter (see link below):

Contact Bavarian Autosport for the spark plugs and connector boots (and valve cover gaskets) at 800-535-2002, or order online.

Changing spark plugs


First remove the big plastic cover that covers the motor by taking off the oil fill spout.Then the plastic cover should just lift right off..No you should be able to see all of the front ones and the rear ones are a little tricky..You'll need a 3 to 6in. extension with a swivel next to the 5/8 deep well socket.Taking them out is usually the easy part to which reinstalling is a little more trickier.Make sure the plug socket you are using has the rubber piece inside of it because you don't want to break the plugs..And when putting rear ones in to use an old plug wire end or just the socket and three inch extension to start the threads because you dont want to cross thread them.After you have atleast threaded them in as far as you can get them and they went atleast 3 to 4 revolutions tighten them up and finish the rest in process you be great..Good luck to you and am always here to help you and anymore questions will be glad to help......

I can't find the spark plugs in my 2005 sonata


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.
